This includes Captain, Co-Captain, Treasurer, and Secretary (all members will have opportunity to cast their ballot in the upcoming weeks). Expect your ballot, renewal info for our club in 2022, etc. soon in another announcement. We have moved our meeting to a much bigger space (Dining area of the Sports Lounge). A guest speaker will also be there to tell us about an upcoming fun tournament at LOP. Masks are required indoors, but there will be much more room to spread out in small groups or by yourself. Hope to see you all at this important meeting. Below is a link to a pdf on our website for the Agenda for the meeting: Tuesday, 9/7, 11:30, following golf in the Sport Lounge Dining Area. Thanks! Mona Stolz, Captain

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

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

Golf Genius will Post your Tuesday Sweeps Play Starting August 17
Hi everyone, Starting August 17th, the Lady Niners Club will formally adopt Golf Genius to Post Scores to GHIN. All Lady Niners will no longer need to post Tuesday Sweep scores to GHIN. How this impacts you for Tuesday Sweeps Play • You no longer need to post your Tuesday Sweeps Play. Golf Genius will post your scores • Your posted scores will be provided to you via the Golf Genius email sent out Tuesday after your round (look for email from noreply@golfgenius.com) • You still will be able to see your score in the GHIN or MyNCGA app on your phone or webpages • You will still need to post your own scores for other days you play golf. 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

Tournament of Champions (TOC)
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

Don't Qualify or can't play all 3 days?

Whether you can only play 2 days or think your handicap is too high to feel competitive (TOC limits handicap to course par) no worries! Sign up to play in our "Fun"ky Flight. Top 2 out of 3 net scores (using full handicap) will determine winners.

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.

9:30 AM shotgun start tomorrow
Hello ladies, just a reminder that starting tomorrow we have 9:30 AM shotgun starts. Have a great day of golf!

3 Reminders.........
1) When playing Hole 3 on Tuesday sweeps, DO NOT USE the temporary green combo tees. All ladies using green or gold tees should use the current rated tee box that has been then for years. On other days, feel free to try out temporary tee box and when posting, use pars + pops for Hole 3. 2) The 9 month Eclectic tournament starts next week, March 2nd! Please sign up on our 9er board in the library at the Sports Lounge and put your $6 check made out to LOP Lady Niners in our Lady Niner box in the Pro Shop; 3) Also starting next week, March 2nd, our shotgun start on Tuesdays at 9:30 AM!!!! Set your alarms! Questions? Contact Toni Boyer for Eclectic, Terri Rooney, Tournament Chair/Handicapper, or Mona Stolz, Captain.

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.

Hello ladies, Attached is information about this year's Team Play. It's starting soon, so if interested, or just curious, read the attached pdf. Sign-up sheet is on our Lady 9er board in the library at the Sports Lounge. Questions? Contact Cathy Sulinski, Team Play Captain

Hello ladies. Tomorrow is our General Meeting at 8:30 AM followed by shotgun sweeps at 10:00 AM.

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. On Wednesday, you will have to locate this email and click on the link.


2021 Eclectic Tournament--starts in MARCH
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. If you are like most of us, you may have a bad score on several holes each week, OK scores on several holes and you have ONE hole that you did great on---If so, this is the tournament for you!! 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.

Update....Jim Wilkinson is home now. He just came home. Please keep him and Pat in your prayers.

Tomorrow sweeps cancelled
Hello ladies, Unfortunately, the weather is not cooperating this week, and our regular Tuesday golf/sweeps is cancelled for this week. See you next week!

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,
