Golf is now being played under winer rules. There are no out-of-bounds or hazards, even though the stakes are still on the course. You may move your ball one club length in the fairway and six inches in the rough, no closer to the pin. Do not play off ice -- move the ball as far as necessary to be safe. Do NOT pull frozen pins out of the cups -- it volcanoes the holes. You cannot post scores for handicaps.
The Itinerant Company of Island Country Club golfers (or at least some of them, played a couple of times in the past week, and Ladies Golf, being smarter, met for lunch. The weather has turned downright wintry -- highs in the 20s -- there is glare ice on some of the greens and the walk down some of the fairways is downright treacherous. We'll try to get in another round to bring 2016 to a close, but, if it's over, it was a fabulous season. A stunning golf course kept in top shape all season, perfectly conditioned tennis courts, a first class Pro Shop, a beautifully renovated Clubhouse with a new portico entrance, a restaurant quality kitchen preparing great meals more efficiently and so much more. Many thanks to Bill, Ana, Janet and Kathy for a great year in the Clubhouse and Greg, Keith and John for the fabulous maintenance.
The Executive Committee -- Jim, Vern, Sam, Sally, Charlie and Liza -- have been working together all Fall to deal with the Club's financial challenges while making sure we offer the facilities and activities that keep our members coming back and which attracts new ones. This is a strong team -- working together well, very realistic and committed to making sure we remain The Best Little Club in America while meeting all of the competitive and demographic challenges.
This website will be updated throughout the winter as news and events warrant. Until then
Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and, Above All, Peace
