Committee Decisions

  • The committee has agreed to support our Fox Creek Driving Range. The committee wanted to give back to our favorite golf course.
  • The committee has decided to drop the practice of the winner’s bying a beer at the end of 9 hole play. We feel that this practice caused to much friction amongst some players. Having said that, if a team wants to have a side bet, they can proceed with their side bet.
