It's been a while since I expressed some of my objectives for the CC . First of all I like and respect everyone that joins our club . I realize that not everyone knows what a CC is all about . Many have different reasons for joining . I really don't know how many of the other clubs are run . They are all different . What I want to emphasize in our CC is that whatever tier you are . That you feel comfortable here , part of a team of players that come here to find conditions that enable them to improve their game , hone their skills , lower their scores ,lower their averages , move up in tiers . Enjoyably and comfortably with the conditions that challenge them enough to keep that drive without the frustrationsof regular game play . All that is completely possible by either creating those tourneys yourself or by messaging me about it . Or someone else in your tier that has been creating tourneys . Any kind of information that you need to know should be provided here , any kind of appp , calculator , help , tutorial , tournament , statistic , message , opinion , gripe , compliment , etc , etc . Should able to be aqcuired here ( or in our website , as it may be easier there ). With your help , all of this can be done easily . We already have a good start . I am going to be here for a very long time trying to achieve all this . For any of you that think it's a good direction for your CC to go in . Then lets keep on keepin on . Sincerely , Your Co team member PDB1 , Paul ( sitting here on a rare rainy day ) May the SUN always be with you
Re: Where are the Flags ?By Bertasion in Valley of the Sun Casual Club The other day upon the heather fair I hit a flagstick that was not there. I saw it's shadow and heard the clank but where it stood was just a blank. It was not there again today. I wonder when it will come back and stay. Brian

THE WEEK THAT WAS BULLETIN No8
Welcome all to the 8th VOTSCC weekly bulletin. Was a quiet week to start with in the shots and achievement sections but thankfully they came to life over the weekend so ill crack on with it.
We had another CC Clash this week this time playing for umbrella tee boxes and flags as well as the custom course cards. Again another fine result for this small CC of ours coming in a respectable 66th place. Well done to all that took part (23 members I think) and again to the ones that rack up huge scores and play non stop. Was also a tough 2 days of high winds so scoring high points was difficult.
A couple of posts that appeared on the forum id like to bring up and bring to everyones attention. Firstly director Jim put up a post asking members to say wether they play PC or mobile or both. If everyone could try and respond that would be great. Jim will then put the device we use beside our names in his members list. This would be a good list to check up on. Weve had a few mobile players joining lately also so it lets people see whos playing on what.
Secondly, one of our newer members WhiskeyRenegade put up a post asking for 16 players to play an ambitious format that requires 4 teams of 4. Its at its early stages but all suggestions on how we could pull this off are welcomed. Please give it a wee look in the forum.
This weeks TWTW tournament Jims Right On Q At Chambers was won by CoryGRobinson with a score of 29. Well done to Cory and the other 12 participants.
INS AND OUTS-- Fossilboy left the club this week but we were joined by 2 new members. Big welcome to SweetPoppy and Kittykat2017. May you both have fun in the sun. We are now at 41 members.
WhiskeyRenegade reached Level 60.
AggieHockey57 reached Level 50.
Micamills hit a 403 yard drive. Hope it found the middle of the fairway Mike.
ROUND OF THE WEEK--When I first suggested this idea of this bulletin and the round of the week in particular to Paul, I did say its not only about your top players hitting 25 or 26 shot rounds but also the lower tier members who might shoot a round that they thought they couldn't achieve yet or something else along those lines. Well this week I'm going to award the round of the week to our newest member to the club Kittykat2017. Kathryn is just not new to the club but to WGT in gereral so this couldve been a bit daunting for her. However she chose to enter her 1st CC club tournament and chose the CTTH 2 ROUNDERS tournament. She may have hit a score of 300 but the fact she completed the 9 holes without quitting which weve all done in that format shows a great commitment. So well done Kat and we can all promise you, as you progress up the levels, your game will improve immensely.
SHOTS OF THE WEEK.

3. WHO AM I-- I was born in 1959 in Seattle, Washington. I have 64 professional wins and 1 major to my name and I am one of the few golfers who do not use a glove at any time.
POLL-- The 15th at Merion .Is it about time we got a new pin position instead of the one right on top of that hill. Maybes Aye or are you Maybes Naw. You actually like the challenge of that green and where the pin is situated.
Last weeks poll. If you had to go back to starter balls, do you think you could score as good as when you used purchased balls. The result was 5 Maybes Naw to 1 Maybes Aye.
As I'm typing this bulletin on the day of my birthday I think you all wont mind if I get to choose this weeks artist. I am a massive U2 fan. Saw them when they were just starting out in small bars in Glasgow and have toured the land ever since attending their gigs. Love this song that much I have some of the lyrics tattooed on my arm.
REFRESHMENT OF THE WEEK.
Well seeing that its my birthday, I'm gonna blow all my birthday cash at the 19th, buying you all my favourite drink. Tennents Lager is Scotlands favourite drink. Brewed in Glasgow since 1885, it is Scotlands best selling lager with approx. 60% of the market. The cans were famous for its design which featured a female model known as a lager lovely on the side, although that design stopped in 1989. However those cans are much sought after now and could fetch a bit of money if you ever come across one. So cheers everyone, Happy birthday to me, see you all at the 19th. Who says a Scotsman is tight with their money.
Well another week passes. I'm off to set up this weeks tournament which again celebrates JimQ916s achievements. The tournament will be called JIMS BANG ON Q AGAIN. Ill leave you in the capable hands of Hamish McTavish to explain the conditions.
Well halo laddies and lassies. This weeks tourney is a bit of a mixed bag. The front 9 oan that beach across the pond and I'm hearin its a bonnie day tae hing oot your washin and super slippery greens. However cos your Uncle Hamish is a decent bloke, ive made it the easy peasy tees. And if it pours doon, ive also left yies brollies to keep your heid dry. See yies all next week.

Apologies to Sweetpoppy. In the ins and outs section I've wrote Sweetpoopy rather than poppy. Oops.
As for the poll I'm a Maybes Aye. The sooner they move that pin the better. Detest that hole.
Mon, Apr 24 2017 2:57 PM
Great job again;
1:False ( guess)
2 & Don't know , did not Google
Poll : Maybe Aye
Happy birthday, enjoy your lager
Mon, Apr 24 2017 3:15 PM
Yet another fine bulletin. Thanks Martin for all the time you put into this. Always a nice read and keeps us up to date on what the members are doing. How about a little Bob Dylan next week, A little Tangled up in Blue.
Mon, Apr 24 2017 3:21 PM
First off Martin, Happy Birthday...I'd love to take you out for a Tennents but not sure I can paddle that far over to you. Another great bulletin!!!!! Congratulations to everyone for their shots, achievements and rounds....and thanks for the recognition of my lucky ones. Great song yet again also...U2 is in my top 10 and are talented as all heck...Bono rocks.
Ok, first off, "Maybe Aye" to another pin placement on #15 of Merion. That hole, as hard as it plays, is one of my favorites. There are a few holes on WGT that you're happy walking away with a par, and that is absolutely one of them. A different pin would be great though.
Question 1 - taking a guess, but I say a player isn't entitled to see his ball while playing a stroke, but I'm kinda sure it would help a lot. Questions 2 I had no idea....I looked the Ryder Cup history up so now know that answer. Queston 3....the golfer who wore no glove....is my all time favorite, Freddie (I've walked around many, many rounds watching him in Florida).
Also, thanks for another tournament named after me....truly honored. Maybe in this one I can do better than 12th (lol)....probably not.
Keep up the great work Martin...these things are great....Jim
Mon, Apr 24 2017 3:46 PM
ive got a few lined up for you now Turd. they are all stored away in the vault waiting to get played. many thanks, the more the merrier.
Mon, Apr 24 2017 10:54 PM
As usual, well done again Martin! Always great to see and hear others successes in having fun!
Just an FYI, my HIO is on the same hole that Jim had his....so the yardage would've been the same....lol.....198 yds.
Mon, Apr 24 2017 11:11 PM
Wasn't sure if it was on different tees Jeff. Congrats on your HIO.
Wed, Apr 26 2017 3:42 AM
Thank you Martin.
Congratulations to all those that moved up a level and to the great shots of the week.
Poll: I don't remember any holes or pin positions, so I can't really answer Aye or Naw. Every hole is like a new experience for me.
Wed, Apr 26 2017 4:57 AM
next time you play the 15th at Merion and don't land your ball below the hole you'll remember what we're talking about Gene. Lol.
Wed, Apr 26 2017 9:39 AM
Would you believe it. Just played a 3 hole match there and I birdied the 15th. Think that's my 1st birdie at that hole. Might end up changing to a Maybes Naw by the end of the week. Lol.

Thanks, Martin, for another excellent effort. I look forward to the beginning of the week and a new weekly bulletin. I can't imagine a week without our buddy, Hamish McTavish.
If you want to change the location of the pin on 15 at Merion, stop choosing hard pin locations. No one will complain, I assure you. Maybe Aye.
The par 3 challenge:
A rules official would say not necessarily. It's like situational ethics, it depends. Thanks to the golf gods, we can make the rules as we go along, sometimes.
The Ryder Cup, in its current arrangement of US golfers playing their European counterparts, began in the late 70's. Jimmy Carter was the President. Mr. Ryder, who supplied the trophy, envisioned a completion between the US and Great Britain. I believe that was during the third decade of the 20th century. It's become a must see event. The players play their hearts out even though they don't get paid. We can all relate, I think.
It's already been revealed: Who is Fred Couples? Freddie has become a perennial Masters favorite. He competes strongly every year through 54 holes before fading. Lucky for us, as a former Masters Champion, he has a lifetime exemption.
See you next week. Good Luck.
Sat, Apr 29 2017 10:48 AM
Cheers Textor although I will bring up the Ryder Cup question. Maybe I should have worded it better but the answer I was looking for was 1927. The very first year it started. As for Merion I wish I could change It but waiting for WGT to give us some better places to put the pin on that green. See u all Monday.
Sun, Apr 30 2017 1:43 PM
Just played the 15th at Merion again there and it's the first time I've ever played it with the pin in a different position. Don't know if this is new or just that I've never seen it before. Anyway walked off with a par so liking the new position.
Sun, Apr 30 2017 5:55 PM
Here is hole 15 . I take it you are not talking about this pin .
But I know which one you mean . Way uphill .
Mon, May 1 2017 1:16 AM
No I think that's the one I was originally talking about Paul. If I putted from where that pic is showing and slightly over hit the putt, I would end up off the green. You are then left with a 12 yard pitch back up which I'm now an expert at. Lol
Mon, May 1 2017 9:23 AM
Sorry for the late response, I have no idea why. Always an enjoyable read and much appreciated post I look forward to reading each week.
On last week's poll, maybes naw. I'm too spoiled by my expensive Nikes to go back to the rock. The quick meter alone would put be out of bounds right, not to mention the inability to stop the ball. Good thing my tablet plays lots of vids for credits.
This week's poll, maybes aye as I like to see different pin positions for all courses but maybes naw as I find Merion 15 a challenge and have half a chance when I get the ball in the fairway in the middle of the landing area. Besides I'm sort of weird in that I like Merion. Early on I got totally wiped out there and was told it was a course to avoid. That appealed to my stubbornness and I made myself play it until I got it. I'm doing that now on Olympic and I finally got that bast*rd the other day in the VT second round but it got me back in the Free Multi round. GRRR
Looking forward to today's edition, have fun and hit 'em straight,
