Senior Match Play Team Seeking Applicants – Deadline October 31, 2018

The Coronado Men’s Golf Club’s Senior Team is inviting those club members who are eligible to apply for membership.  Our team is in a league with 18 other golf courses in San Diego County (http://sdcsgolfleague.com/id5.html).   We play one home and away match against each of the 18 teams, usually on Fridays.  The season starts in late January and finishes in October with playoffs in November.  If you would like to participate, you should be available to play in a match about every 6 weeks or so.

While team members enjoy each other’s camaraderie, as well as meeting golfers from other clubs, our primary goal is to win matches and team members take the competition very seriously.  The format is 2-man match play with a maximum of 2 points per hole.  We are seeking Coronado members age 55 or older (as of 2/1/19) with a maximum index of 25.0 who enjoy pressure-packed competitive team golf (think Ryder Cup).

Our team has made the playoffs each of the last four years.  We intend to continue that tradition with the ultimate goal of finishing first in the league and winning the playoffs.

Each team member receives a team shirt.  Annual dues are $100

There are a limited number of spots available.  If you are interested, complete the application located on the Club’s references page (https://www.coronadomensgolf.org/wp/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/APPLICATION-FOR-MEMBERSHIP-Senior-Team.pdf) and email it to royburchill@gmail.com by October 31, 2018.

General Membership Meeting – November 13, 2018

The Club’s semi-annual General Membership Meeting will be held on Tuesday, November 13, 2018 in the Clubhouse of the Coronado Golf Course.   Dinner will be provided by the Club starting at 6:00 p.m. with the General Membership Meeting commencing promptly at 6:30 p.m.

As was announced before cancellation of the May 8, 2018 General Membership Meeting, the cancellation of that meeting impacted those members hoping to play in the Past Presidents Memorial Tournament on December 8th and 9th which has traditionally been free to members who have attended one General Membership Meeting during the calendar year.  The Board of Governors has determined that those members attending the November 13, 2018 meeting will be given priority to play in the Past Presidents Memorial Tournament.  If there are any remaining spots available after filling spots with members who attend the November 13, 2018 meeting, those spots will be allocated to those members based on the order in which those non-attending members register for the tournament.

Thank you.

Coronado Men’s Golf Club Board of Governors

Relief – Concrete Lining Water Hazard

A CMGC member recently described a situation that occurred at the ninth hole a couple of tournaments ago. The player’s tee shot came to rest just outside of the water hazard to the left of the ninth green. The ball was NOT IN THE HAZARD but the concrete liner of the hazard interfered with his stance to play the next shot. The question was whether the player was able to take free relief from the concrete liner which clearly meets the definition of a hazard under Rule 24. The answer is yes, the player does get relief under such circumstance based on Rule 24-2. B as follows:

B. Relief

Except when the ball is in a water hazard or a lateral water hazard, a player may take relief from interference by an immovable obstruction as follows: (i) Through the Green: If the ball lies through the green, the player must lift the ball and drop it, without penalty, within one club-length of and not nearer the hole than the nearest point of relief. The nearest point of relief must not be in a hazard or on a putting green. When the ball is dropped within one club-length of the nearest point of relief, the ball must first strike a part of the course at a spot that avoids interference by the immovable obstruction and is not in a hazard and not on a putting green.

The first sentence of the rule provides “Except when the ball is in the water hazard or lateral hazard” the player gets relief. So in the above-described situation because the player’s ball was not in the hazard the player does get relief without penalty in accordance with the rule. If the player’s ball would have been in the water hazard and the immovable obstruction interfered with his stance or swing, he would not have been entitled to relief.
