Congratulations to Jay Boudreau, Individual Match Play Champion!
Congratulations to Jay Boudreau on winning the season long Individual Match Play Championship!  It was a long hard battle with stiff competition from round 1 to the finals. Jay had no easy task with Kevin Fitzsimonds taking him to the wire to claim the title of Topstone Individual Match Play Champion. Great playing by both competitors to make it to the finals. Jay will have a long winter to prepare for retaining his title next year, there are going to be 63 guys chomping at the bit to win this illustrious title next year.  Click here to see the final current Individual Match Play bracket.

Site updates – Ringers – Pro's Corner
Ringers tournament – The Ringers tournament standings thru October 8th have been posted.  Visit the Ringers page to see the current standings.

Pro's Corner UPDATED 10/6/17– Rule 25-3:  Wrong Putting Green.  Believe it or not but often times we hit errant shots during the course of our rounds.  Some older courses were built on small tracks of land and their designers utilized every little bit of that space.  As a result, other holes come into play and sometimes our shots land on the wrong putting green.  When that happens, it is important to know the rules.  Check out this week's Pro's Corner to see a video regarding Rule 25-3:  Wrong Putting Green.  

Pace of play
As we enter the prime of the golf season, we want to take a moment to remind everyone about Pace of Play and Ready Golf.  These guidelines can be found on the member handbook page. As members of the club we are privileged to get premium tee times every weekend.  We have a responsibility to the club to maintain a reasonable pace of play.  The first 8 groups are expected to finish in 4 hours or less.  The remaining groups are expected to finish in 4:20 or better.  We understand that if the group of front of you is playing slowly, you have no control over that.  However, all groups are expected to complete the 18th hole within 12 minutes of the group in front of them.  

Please read the Pace of Play guide if you would like some tips on how to best maintain a proper pace on the course.
