Forward tees now painted silver

WLGC changes forward tees

This year the forward tees have all been painted silver to hopefully help eliminate the concept that the forward tees (red) are for women only. Everyone should play from the set of tees that makes their game more enjoyable and offers the best chance to hit greens in regulation. Playing it forward has been a big push by the USGA for several years and identifying tees as open for all players is step in the a positive direction. Having five sets of tees available for our players offers an opportunity to play with various abilities in the same group and everyone having fun.

Season opener tournament

This year’s annual Season Opener Tournament was once again a huge success with 52 two-person teams participating in the event. The course was in fantastic condition and the tournament was organized to last detail thanks to our Golf Professional Staff and green crew. A very tasty and appropriate luncheon followed with a large group staying to watch the Kentucky Derby on the large screens.

Projects underway

This year players will find limited projects on the golf course with the exception of some continued cart path improvements and necessary repairs later in the season. The focus this year is to repair and renovate our numerous buildings that are showing some wear. The Northside of the cart barn will have new siding; the back of the bag room will be revitalized with new siding as well. And our outbuildings will get a fresh coat of paint where needed. The bar surface on the deck has been refinished and sealed due to weathering but should reopen for use this week.

Putting Tips

This is a tip from our beloved former Golf Professional Mike Dowaliby. There are two killers in the putting stroke that all players need to avoid, first taking the club back too fast and second taking it back too far. A slow short back stroke will necessitate acceleration in the stroke and will then keep the club on line. Every shot in golf should be hit with an accelerating stroke, even the shortest of putts. Deceleration is usually caused by taking the putter too far back, and then knowing that we tend to slow it down. Pick your line, commit to the stroke and don’t move your head until you either hear the put fall into the hole or you think it should be there.
