Hello Lady Niner!
Hello Ladies,

I sure miss seeing all of you! I hope you are all staying healthy. I miss golfing, too. I walk around the lake everyday, to compensate.

I wanted to give you an update on our activities, or lack there of. First of all, our April meeting has been cancelled. Our golf course will definitely be closed until April 30th and after that, it is a wait and see decision.

I spoke with our board members and Kay Knowlden and we are cancelling the Spring Twilight, which was going to be on May 5th. There is no way we can pull that off with the sheltering in place rule until May 3rd, as per Governor Newsom.

As far as the Sister's/International Women's Golf Day, on June 2nd, we will have to wait and see.

WNGHA still wants us to go forward with team play, but again, that is a wait and see decision, as per the California guidelines of the govenor. Lincoln Hills rescheduled their team play for June 10th.

I will keep you updated, so no need to worry about any golf activities, for now. Please take care of yourselves.

On a personal note, my nephew Kyle, age 26, who lives in Florida, had Covid-19 and was asymptomatic. He was tested because he attended wedding where someone had the virus. He is fully recovered. He was a carrier. My cousin, Tommy, from NJ, age 73, was taken to the hospital, yesterday. He is not doing well. He is on oxygen and had a bad night. He in not on a ventilator, yet. I would appreciate your positive energy and prayers be sent his way, please. If any of you out there have loved ones who have this terrible virus, let Bebe know and we can all pray for them. Thank you, so much.

Stay Well, Mary Heaton, You Faithfull Captain

Letter from our Pro, Pat Shaw
Dear Lady Niners, I'm including a link to the letter that Pat Shaw has written to all golf club members. Sincerely, Mary Heaton Club Captain

03/25/20  
Hello
Hello Ladies,

I hope all of you are staying well!

I thought I would give you a golf update. There have been a few modifications to our golf course to keep it safe for us, so that we can keep it open. The golf committee wanted to focus on the fewest touch points as possible.

You must use your own cart. They are making an exemption for street carts, so that you can ride it on the course, but you must pay $13 to the proshop.

The cups have been inverted so that you do not have to reach into the cup. You aim for the inverted cup and if you hit it, you "holed" your ball.

You have to call the proshop to make a tee time and pay. The proshop is closed.

The golf hours have been altered to allow more walkers. The hours are: 10am-6pm.

The ball washers are covered and you may not use them.

The weather is supposed to be nice next week, so I hope to see some of you out on the golf course, from a safe distance!

Please stay healthy,

Mary Heaton, Captain

Thank you, Mary Heaton, Captain

Bebe Haut
Hello Ladies,

Mary M. let me know that Bebe is safe at home, here at LOP. She did not have surgery, do to Covid-19. Feel free to send her a card or leave her a message. Bebe will continue to be our Sunshine lady.

Also, the powers that be have decided there will be no sweeps for at least a month. The golf course will be open, but only tee times are available and no shot gun starts. So, if you want to golf, you must call the proshop for a tee time. None of the four golf clubs will have a set day. It will be every golfer for themselves.

Please stay safe out there. I want to see all of your beautiful faces in a month or so!

Mary Heaton, Lady Niner Captain

03/16/20  
Sweeps/WNGHA Events
Dear Lady Niners,

I was waiting to confer with my board regarding on how to move forward, in these difficult times, before I emailed all of you.

First of all, I want you all to be safe. Please take all precautions necessary to stay healthy. I want all of us to come out from this unscathed.

To begin, sweeps are cancelled for tomorrow. After that, they will be determined, on a week to week basis. There will be a different protocol on how we run them. I will keep you informed.

First of all, we want you ladies to ride in your carts alone and keep a safe social distance. We will not congregate before or after golf. We may change how to hand in the cards and we will instruct you accordingly.

I have been informed that ALL WNGHA events have been cancelled through, mid-April. This includes open days, meetings and invatationals.

The April Lady Niner meeting is cancelled. I will email you important information. At this point, the May meeting will be the next time we gather, depending on whether it is safe to do so.

Take good care of yourselves, Ladies,

Mary Heaton, captain

Terri Rooney--Lady Niner's New Handicapper
Ladies,

Terri Rooney is the new, 2020 handicapper for our club. Weeks ago, she began to investigate the World Handicap System, of the USGA.

She is working through the new system and challenging the USGA, to change the cap of 54. There are many of us that desire to play the game of golf and use our true handicaps. We must be patient and trust Terri to do her best to sort out the issues.

Let us all show her appreciation, by going the extra mile to get us up to speed, on the World Handicap System.

Thank you, Terri!

Message from Mona
GOOD NEWS!  The new World Handicapping System is up and running!!  I was able to open my GHIN app this morning.  It does ask you for your GHIN # and last name and then it automatically opened up new USGA GHIN app.   If you don't know your GHIN#, it is posted in Lady Niner bulletin board in library of Sports Lounge or you can text me (or call me) at 916-397-7425 and I will tell you what it is.  It has your handicap index and you MAY be able to post your golf scores starting from January 1.  I noticed some glitches which could be caused by every golfer worldwide trying to login and check it out!!!

Please be patient and we will all get through this.

I will be at the Sports Lounge starting at 12:45 tomorrow (after Tuesday sweeps) and will be holding a hand-on training on popping cards, posting scores (we can try posting your Tuesday scores together, etc.)

Thanks,

Mona

Team Play Championships
Lady Niners,

I am very pleased to announce that the LOP Lady Niners team won 1st place, in the River Valley Region, at Almaden Country Club, this past Thursday. We not only won our region, but we also placed 2nd, in the WNGHA overall championships! Thank you to Suzie Estes, our team captain and Cathy Sulinski, our co-captain for taking us there. The team members who played in the championship were: Lauren Dummer, Cassi Bassolino, in 1st flight; Carla Conyer, Mona Stolz, in 2nd flight and Toni Boyer and myself, in 3rd flight. Suzie Estes played in the captain's flight. The weather was beautiful and the course was wide and the fairways smooth. A great job by ALL the team members who helped get us there: Sandy Malin, Terri Rooney, Mary Maguire, Rochelle Calderone, Sharon Cowles, Kim Lane and Terry Roberts. Thank you, ladies!

URGENT! SPENDING DEADLINE THIS SUNDAY!
This Sunday the 25th is the deadline for spending your sweeps winnings until after the transition to our new system is completed. I expect that will be the end of September. Any balance left in your account after August 25th will be issued to you later as a pro shop gift card. Below is a link to the July Pro Shop Ledger file - please check to see if you have a balance.

2019 Lady Niner Pro Shop Ledger
Good News! We are changing how our club handles payment of sweeps winnings. As of August 31, 2019 we will no longer be utilizing the “credit ledger” system that connects to LOP accounting and tracks all earnings and purchases. Starting in September, we will transition to a Gift Card system whereby your previous months’ winnings will be issued to you in the form of pre-paid money card. These cards will be available for pickup at the next month’s Lady Niner meeting. For example, your total winnings for September will be put onto a money card and held for you for pick up at the October club meeting.

As your Pro Shop Ledger Manager, I will continue to record all winnings onto a spreadsheet and post that to the website at the end of each month so that you can keep track of your own sweeps earnings. In order to implement this transition, YOU MUST STOP SPENDING OF YOUR CURRENT CREDIT BALANCES BY AUGUST 25, 2019!

Any balance left in your account after August 25th will be issued to you later as a pro shop gift card.

Once this new system is in place we will explore the option of issuing Food and Beverage Gift Certificates.

Please contact Cassi if you have any questions or concerns. Click on the link to access the July 2019 Pro Shop Credit Ledger.

Corena Green
Dear Lady Niners,

I want to personally thank all of you for volunteering for Corena Green. It was a successful tournament because of all your help and from the help of the Lady 18ers, Men's 18ers, Men's 9ers, Firebelle's, friends and neighbors. What an exciting day!

Lauren, you wished upon and par and looked what happened, your wish came true! You pushed for the last several years to host Corena Green and it finally came into fruition. It was your belief in us as a club that convinced the WNHGA directors to consider LOP as a host course. Lauren, you worked tirelessly and we are all in awe of you!

The decorations were beautiful and the food was tasty. I have never seen so many golf carts transferring people back and forth. It truly took a village to pull this tournament off. Ladies, you are amazing!

It was wonderful to witness these young women play the game of golf. I got to personally speak with a few of these girls and they shared with me that it was the most fun tournament they had ever experienced and that everyone was so nice.

So, thank you again, Ladies. You all helped to make it a special day for these promising young golfers!

Gratefully yours,

Mary Heaton, Captain

Request

Fall Twilight Update
Lady Niners,

I tried to get the date changed for the Fall Twilight, but each date I tried, the clubhouse and the sport lounge were in use. So, I know there are some of you who won't like the Fall Twilight and the Sister's Tournament, back to back, but my hands were tied.

The Fall Twilight will be on the original date of October 15th. Let's make the best of it Ladies!

MAY 2019 Lady Niner Pro Shop Credit Report
Hello everyone! The MAY 2019 Lady Niner Pro Shop Credit Report is finally ready and is posted to the website for your viewing until the June ledger is posted. The reason these are posting so late into the following month is because the accountant at LOP Admin is still undergoing training and sometimes she does not get to our ledger documents for 2-3 weeks. Hopefully this will get shorter. Thank you for your patience and understanding, Cassi

Ladies,

A few reminders regarding the Spring Twilight: registration is at 2:30pm, where you will get your cards and tee assignments.

Mulligans can be purchased at the registration table. Two Mulligans, per person, maximum. They cannot be used on the greens.

A briefing of rules at 2:45pm and then, head to your assigned hole, with a shotgun at 3pm.

Once you finishing playing nine holes, head to the CLUBHOUSE, where you will turn in your scorecards in the entry way.

While you are waiting for the other golfers to come in, maybe purchase a drink. Once all the teams have returned, the Uke of the Pines, ukulele group will entertain before dinner is served.

Lauren, Mona and I have worked hard to plan this tournament. We hope you enjoy yourselves!

See you, tomorrow afternoon! Mary Heaton

Thank you, Mary

Lady Niners Golf Field Trip to Auburn Valley GC
Lady Niners,

Yesterday, at the general meeting, I informed the ladies that we will NOT have a general meeting in the month of April. The reason being is the golf course will be closed for maintainance, on April 9th, the meeting day. It was my idea to still golf and have some fun doing it at another local course.

I called around and the best deal I could find was at Auburn Valley. We can get 9 holes of golf and a cart for $25, per person. It would be a shotgun start and 8:30, playing the front 9 holes. Since it will be a shotgun, we can then meet in their cafe and have lunch together. Of course, that would be optional.

Ladies, in order to make this fun day happen, I need an immediate response from you. If you would like to participate in this event, please email me and let me know ASAP, I have to get back to the manager, John. My email address is: missmary007@gmail.com

I think this would be a great day and I hope you will join me!

Mary Heaton, Captain
