I just talked to Jane Noles and she is doing well. She had her foot surgery done yesterday. Her surgery was for a ligament in her foot. I asked her if she needed any help from the niners and she said that she was OK. She is going to be off her foot for a couple of weeks and then has to be in a. Foot boot for 2 months.

I can't believe it but I was just informed that Jane Nole is having FOOT surgery. I know from experience how hard it is to do things and get around with a foot injury. I am sure that she would like a call or card to cheer her up.

2022 Team Play Sign-ups
2022 Team Play

The signup sheet for 2022 Team Play has been posted on the Lady 9er board at the Sports Lounge.

For those of you unfamiliar with Team Play, it is a friendly competition between clubs sponsored by the Women’s Nine Hole Golf Association (WNHGA). There are four Regions (Central Valley, East Bay, Peninsula, and River Valley). Three of the four Regions have a Division A and B. LOP is in River Valley Division A which is made up of 4 clubs (Lincoln Hills, Lake of the Pines, Lake Wildwood and Cold Springs). Lincoln Hills hosts the first team play on May 4th, followed by LOP on May 17th, Lake Wildwood on June 28th, and Cold Springs on July 12th. The winner of each Division will move onto the championship tournament hosted by Cold Springs CC on August 23rd (Placerville).

To be eligible for Team Play, you must have a fully established 18-hole index with ten 18-hole rounds. These ten-18 hole rounds or combined 9-hole rounds must have been played and posted within the past 24-month period prior to the Handicap Revision Index date for the game you are scheduled to play.

For example: Our first tournament is May 4th. The Handicap Revision Index to be used is the 15th of the preceding month. So, for you to be eligible to play on May 4th, you must have posted 10 18-hole rounds or combined 9-hole rounds within the past 24 months prior to April 15th.

The next step after signups is to meet with those ladies interested in playing this year. Lauren and I will find a date in March and send it out to you. If you are uncertain about playing this year but curious, signup anyway and join us!

We look forward to another exciting and fun filled year of Team Play!

Cathy Sulinski (Team Play Captain) and Lauren Dummer (Team Play Co-Captain)

Ron, Janet Trimble's husband, was playing p-ball on Thursday, took a bad fall and broke his right hip. Surgery on Friday, not a full replacement but for sure there will be hardware in there. As of yesterday he is in Siena Care, and this morning he had his first PT. Please keep Ron and Janet in your thoughts and prayers.

Our monthly General Meeting will be held at the Sports Lounge this Tuesday at 8:30am. A lite Continental Breakfast will be provided by our awesome Hospitality Team. Please bring your own beverage.

For those of you who signed up for Tuesday sweeps, this morning, January 25, our starting time has been pushed to 10:30am.

It is the start of a new Season and a few reminders to note.

Pace of Play for playing nine holes at Lake of the Pines is 2 1/2 hour. But the Lady Niner Sweeps games often don't require all holes be played by all players. What does that mean actually? It means on days where the sweeps game will utilize less than 9 holes, it will be okay to pick up your ball if you have reached your Maximum hole score for two holes only*.

Maximum hole score is Par + Pops + 2. For our members with more than 3 pops per hole, the maximum hole score for you will be Par + 5.

* The World Handicap System has outlined the minimum number of holes played to be able to post an official score. The minimum number of holes to be played is 7 holes. The missed holes will be posted at Par + Pops.

The Lady Niner web page is a great resource for more information on the above topics.

Missing Lady 9er Awards Box
Good afternoon, everyone. Our Lady 9er's Awards Box has turned up missing. It was last used at the In Out Breakfast last Tuesday. It is a rectangular semi-clear plastic box with several envelopes in it, containing pins and cash.

I would like to extend a great beg THANK YOU to all those who made the In / Out Breakfast such a huge success. Phyllis Sorenson and Sarah O’Reilly, our Hospitality Team, did an amazing job of coordinating with Food and Beverage to make it a truly delightful experience. Beautifully done, ladies. Thank you to Carla Holtzclaw for creating and providing the beautiful table decorations. To Mona Stolz for spending hours on the printed program. To Mona’s husband Rick who came and picked everything up and returned it to its rightful place, so that we could get to assigned tees in time. If this event is any indication of what we have in store for us this year ….it’s going to be an AMAZING year! I look forward to working with the Executive Board and countless Lady 9er volunteers in 2022. Thank you, EVERYONE! Mary Maguire

Carla Conyers did not play golf today because she hurt her knee in the last storm we had. We are wishing you a speedy recovery Carla. Just a reminder to keep Lee Hicks in your prayers. Her husband has been suffering Alzheimer's rheumatoid arthritis, and dementia for 6 long years. He is now living at his daughters . Lee would love for all of us to keep him in our prayers. He was in a care facility but due to all the covid restrictions they brought him home. Besides sending out a real card I also send an e-mail get well card. So if you see an e-mail from American greetings from Bebe Brigante, it is from me. Hope you all are doing well. If not call me. 530 401 8086

Karis Holmans' husband is going to have a brain shunt done at Sutter in Sacramento on Jan 26th. She will be at the breakfast tomorrow. It will be a great time to wish her good luck.

Hi everyone, Link below will take you to announcement on our website with the agenda as a pdf that you can view and/or print for tomorrow's meeting, after golf, starting approx. 12:00 NOON in the Sports Lounge Dining Room area.

Hi everyone, Two important reminders for Tuesday sweeps: 1) Shotgun start is 9:00 AM this month; and 2) NO SHOWS…………If you sign up for Tuesday sweeps, you are expected to play. We understand that from time to time, there will be circumstances that you won’t be able to play (weather, emergency, etc.). If for any reason, you cannot play Tuesday, it is your responsibility (and courtesy to other players) to go to the pro shop and take your name off the sign-up sheet (if before NOON on Monday). AFTER 12:00 NOON on Monday, if you cannot play, contact all members of your group AND also contact the pro shop so they can cross you off the official play list. NO ONE should have to be at their starting hole waiting for someone who doesn’t show up. There have been TOO MANY times when a player ends up alone on a hole and not knowing if their playing partners are going to show up or not and knowing what to do. All phone numbers are on our member list on our website. If you do not know how to get to the list or need help, please contact Cassi Bassolino, our Webmaster for assistance.

Hello everyone, Reminder to get your ballots in for next year’s elected officers no later than start of meeting this Tues, 10/5/21 after golf. They go in a special ballot box in the Pro Shop.

Update on Joyce Lewis. This is what she says. Russ is doing ok and getting great care in Auburn Oaks with PT and OT and Nursing. His Neurosurgeon Dr. Aliabati said he is healing well and can do a little more now with Rehab and the collar can be removed for bathing but should be worn for 7 more weeks. Her daughter Kristen came from So. CA and was a huge help. Our son from Tahoe was here for a weekend. Joyce had a cortisone shot in her hip which helped immensely--maybe will get back to golf when the smoke clears. She misses her sister terribly but stays in close touch with the family and friends which is helpful. Sincerely Joyce

Nancy Tealdi said that I could update you on her progress. She can not play golf yet but she can travel, walk daily and do water aerobics. She just has to wait until her bone gets stronger. She is starting heavy PT. She says that it would have been a faster recovery if she had just gotten a new hip but that wasn't an option. She is still using a cane. She says that she has nothing to complain about and will get out on the golf course before you know it.

Winners Gift Cards now in Pro Shop
Hi everyone, Stephanie Tran has coordinated with the Pro Shop for Niners who have won $$, to pick up their card at the Pro Shop anytime during Pro Shop hours. Please try and pick up your card this week. Just ask the person manning the desk. They have all cards in a ziplock bag and a list of names. Niners who have cards are: Conyers (from TOC) Cowles, Denzler, Haut, Hulsebus, Kirk, Laird, Lerski, Lewis, Marsh, S. Miller, O'Reilly, Pena, Roberts, Rooney, Snead, Tozer. Thanks!!

This announcement is a reminder for all lady niners the importance of ensuring the Tuesday sweeps scorecard turned in after play is accurate and attested. These scorecards are used for sweeps games and ongoing Eclectic tournament. ALL scorecards should have the group’s scorekeeper’s signature and signature of an “attester” (attesting that scorecard is accurate). Therefore, it is the scorekeeper and attester’s responsibility to make sure the entire scorecard is accurate, clear, and legible. Check for all players’ hole by hole scores, total, and net score (all the way across). A good practice is for all players to keep their own individual scorecard and go over with scorekeeper after each hole and when play is concluded. It is also the individual’s responsibility to ensure any notables (accomplishments) such as Break 60 (only if handicap on scorecard is 26 or higher), Break 50, Birdie, Eagle, Hole-in-One or Chip-In is noted on the official scorecard. Thanks!! Mona

The secretary’s main responsibilities include attending Monthly Executive Board meetings and General Meetings, recording minutes for the meetings, and posting the General Minutes to our website. If you have some typing skills and are interested in serving on the board (a great place to make new friends and learn about how are club is run), this position might be for you! Feel free to contact our current Secretary, Camilla Bastian, if you have any specific questions and contact Mary Maguire or myself ASAP if interested in the Secretary position. Thank you, Mona Stolz, Captain, Lady Niners

To improve the Lady Niner club tournament process, please review the Golf Genius email you receive after play and contact the Tournament team ASAP if you discover there is a disconnect between what you believe your score was compared to what was entered into Golf Genius. If you would like an overview of Golf Genius, please reach out to the Tournament Team, Terri Rooney, Lauren Dummer, or Mary Maguire and they will set up some time to work with you directly. Thank you, Mona

Greetings and salutations ladies,

The Lady Niners Club Championship Tournament (TOC) is just around the corner. This year our tournament dates are Tuesday July 13th, Tuesday July 20th and Friday July 23rd, followed by lunch on the Clubhouse deck.

What is the Tournament of Champions (TOC)?

The TOC is a competitive flighted low gross and low net round game spread out over 3 days and 3 different tees. After the 3 rounds the Low Gross player is awarded the 2021 Club Champion receiving a $50 Cash prize and their name engraved on the TOC trophy. Pro-Shop Credit is awarded to the Low Net players in each flight, payouts to 50% (or more) of participants.

The Club Champion and all 3 net Flight winners advance to the WNHGA Regional Championship to be held on September 28th at Peninsula Country Club in San Mateo.

Who is eligible?

Eligible players must have 20 Rounds (10 - 18 hole) posted within the last 24 months including 5 in the current calendar year. Flights will be based on July 10, 2021 indexes.

Flight 1: 0 -15.9 Flight 2: 16 - 20.9 Flight 3: 21 & above

Social member? Designated 18-holer for Club Championship play? Participate by assisting with the Tournament by volunteering as a marker, or other helper including husbands / partners.

Sand on greens?-what to do
Hello Ladies,

LOP maintenance has begun sanding sections of several greens. Pat Shaw, the LOP Pro, has determined to treat the sanded areas as Ground Under Repair also known as an Abnormal Course Condition. If you ball lands in one of these sanded areas on a green, you may lift the ball and place it, without penalty, at the nearest point of relief (no closer to the hole) that is not in a penalty area. If complete relief is impossible, place where affords the maximum available relief, no closer to hole. Click on link below to see more details and picture. If you have any questions, please reach out to Terri Rooney for additional clarification.

lopgolf.com training
Hello ladies, Most of you know there is currently a website to make online tee times at LOP. It's called lopgolf.com and was developed by Steve Kompolt. We do not use it for Tuesday sweeps, but it is available for other times you play. I recently heard that LOP is going to have a more comprehensive online tee time system coming in June so lopgolf.com may only be around for a few more months. However, if you are interested in learning more about lopgolf.com, Steve Kompolt has scheduled a zoom meeting on Wednesday, 2/10 at 10:00 AM. In this email, is the link to join the meeting.

2021 Eclectic Tournament starts on March 2! Cost is $6 and all money is paid out at our annual In/Out awards meeting in January.

Please open attached pdf file for more details and contact Toni Boyer if you have any questions.

Pat Wilkinsons' husband Jim is in the hospital. He has had multiple strokes. It would be nice if you called Pat to see if she needs anything, maybe some cooked meals. A card would be nice too. Of course I will send her one.

Tomorrow sweeps cancelled

LOP Super Bowl Scramble golf tournament
Hello ladies, Attached is a flyer for LOP Super Bowl Scramble golf tournament on Saturday, 2/6. Questions and Sign up with Pro Shop if interested.

Scorecards--Signatures required
Ladies, Although Golf Genius is now scoring the Tuesday Sweeps game, we all still need to sign our scorecards that are turned in to the tournament helpers or placed in the tournament box.

Signing your scorecard says you have verified each hole score is correct and the person signing as "attest", is saying they agree with the turned in scorecard.

Starting in February, scorecards that do not have two signatures: "scorer" and "attest" may not be eligible for Sweep winnings. Terri and tournament helpers will do all that they can to remind everyone as they turn in their scorecards, but it is part of the Sweeps validation process that each turned in scorecard is signed by the scorer and attested.

If you have any questions, please reach out to Terri Rooney or Mona Stolz. Thank you!

30 minute frost delay today
Today there is a 30 minute frost delay so shotgun is at 10:30 AM. It's cold but sunny! There have been some cancellations, but we still have over 20 players. If you are the only one in your group, please contact other groups and/or pro shop to figure out where to play. For example, My group (1A) was down to just me, but I found 2 other ladies (Camilla and Mary) to join me on Hole 1A. I will be at pro shop area by 10:15 to help anyone who may still need help. Thanks, Mona

Change to weekly sign-up process
Our membership has been steadily growing, and as a result, we are now scheduled to play both sides of our course each week (unless we have fewer than 40 players). With this great news, there has been some last minute shuffling of hole assignments to evenly distribute the players on the front and back. This caused a few groups to be reassigned and scrambling to attempt to contact everyone affected.

After some discussion, ideas, and suggestions, our Executive board would like to move forward with a new way of making hole assignments each week. Beginning with the February 2nd sign up sheets, everyone will sign up in the Pro Shop (just like now) but will not sign up for a particular hole. Starting holes will be randomly assigned by our new Golf Genius software. Your hole assignments will be available to see on our website Monday afternoon and will also be shown on the popped cards our Tournament Chair sends out Monday evening. This change will:

1) eliminate last minute changes to hole assignments 2) be less confusing 3) be fair (will randomly assign holes) 4) will best utilize both sides of the course

As a note, inherent in using both sides of the course, sometimes you may be playing the same side of the course two weeks in a row, but our Tournament Chair will ensure that no one plays the same side three times in a row. Each side of the course is its own tournament so you are only competing in the sweeps game with ladies who played the same side of the course as you.

We are implementing this on a trial basis and may need to make some tweaks as we move forward, but we think this is a positive change for our club.

If you have any questions about the new process,please reach out to Terri Rooney or Mona Stolz.

Thank you,
