  1. Joanne Plasse thanked everyone who prepaid for the CTP tournament, it made it much easier and less confusing for everyone. 
  2. At the November meeting Julia Strom announced we are not using the surplus money from the 2017 Ladies Invitational to supplement the Christmas lunch.  We will use to increase prize money.
  3. Joanne explained how we will pay out prize money for 2018.  We will pay 4 places but no ties.  We will card off by stoke holes to determine winners.  We will pay $5, $4, $3, $2 in each flight.
  4. Asked everyone to please be careful when writing your name on CTP flight sheets.  Be sure you use the correct flight sheet.
  5. League handicaps are how up to 36
  6. T-times start at 8:00AM or a bit later.




Handicap Chairperson

Brenda Duke asked everyone to be careful when adding scores.  Please check with team mate keeping second card to make sure your math is correct.  If you adjust the total score make sure you adjust the individual hole scores to match.  The handicap (and ringer board) uses the individual scores on each hole, make sure they are correct.


Special Events Chairperson

Sharlene thanked everyone for supporting the CTP tournament.

She announced her last duty as the special event chairperson will be the Ladies Invitational to be held on 3/13/18, the theme is “Glamour Gals in support of Breast Cancer”.

Sharlene is looking for two people to contact the American Cancer society for the Ladies Invitational tournament.  Please see her after the meeting if you wish to volunteer.

The quiz at the CTP tournament was well received.  The answers to the questions were announced.


Social Chairperson

Julia Strom thanked Gail Morrison for picking up the lunch subs from Publix and Roberta Kessler for making the pasta salad.

Arrangements have been made with the Yellow Dog for our Christmas luncheon to be held on 12/5/18 at 1PM


Membership Chairperson

Betty Healy announced we have 65 members, the 4 new members are:  Dianne Kallop, Joanne Beyer, Elaine Stevenson and Debbie Smyk.  Sharlene provided welcome gifts for each of them.


Sunshine Chairperson

Judy Thibeau announced cards were sent to:

Patti Bracci who had her appendix removed

Cookie Shaw who had a hip replacement and

Eileen Parsons who also had a hip replacement


Rules Chairperson

Cookie Shaw resigned since she is recuperating from a hip replacement.  Doris McClintock has agreed to fill this position.  Doris created a rules etiquette sheet that was included with the score card for each team today.  We were to each read, initial and return the sheet upon completion of play today. 




Beth made an announcement of a little known rule which is when all people are on the green except one and that one elects to remove the pin and has a putter in hand, the person who is farthest from the pin regardless of being on or off the green goes first.  This applies when the pin is removed and the person off the green is using a putter. 


Old Business



New Business

Raylene announced we received a letter from the HOA announcing a golf tournament to raise funds to support the efforts of the HOA.  They are also looking for donations and hole sponsorship.  A copy of the tournament signup sheet will be placed in the 18 Holer book.  Raylene made a motion to make a $40 donation for a hole sponsorship, Judy Skene seconded.  The motion carried with one opposed.

Raylene indicated she sent out an email to all league players announcing the Ringer Board would be started on 1/16/18 but would not include 1/23/18 since it was a tournament.  But, since it was an individual tournament and everyone played their own ball out we can include this date in the ringer board.  Everyone agreed to this change. 

Judy Thibeau announced the 50/50 raffle started at this meeting.  She proposed the 50% prize be split up into 3 prizes of $25 each.  This met with approval.



Betty Bartowiak gave the blessing.



Meeting adjourned at 12:31PM

She read Judy Rice’s note regarding late sign ups.  Judy Farrell made the suggestion to have a wait list for those who signed up late.  It will be taken under advisement.  In order to avoid congestion on ‘shot gun start days’ Joanne suggested signing in and moving our carts away from the porch when possible. A suggestion was made to have golf cart 'number' signs be placed along the cart path adjacent to the pro shop.  This will be looked into.


Handicap Chairperson- No report.


Special Events Chairperson- Roberta Kessler read the report in Sharlene Coates absence. Sharlene had left a 'Mad Hatter 2017 Invitational Wrap Up'. See attached


Lynn Pfenniger believes that the policy of making a profit should be a membership decision. Joanne Plasse, with the President’s permission, spoke on behalf of the board.  She explained how the decision to make a profit for the association was made at the February Board meeting and this decision was based upon similar practices at other clubs. Joanne pointed out that the board was elected by the members to act on behalf of the members.  If anyone is unhappy with how the Board is running the league we will be more than happy to step down and allow others to take over the reins.  A question was asked regarding the profits from the sale of the 50/50 and mulligans.  Joanne indicated that in the past the mulligan profit was used to defray the cost for decorations and other expeditures, however this year, since we made a profit, we will earmark the $143 profit made from 50/50s and mulligans to the charity of our choice.   Sharlene received a huge round of applause for a great job.

Rules Chairperson- No Rules Report. We follow USGA rules.


President's Report- No Report.


Old Business- In the future, Invitational Tournament Notices will be posted in the pro shop under the framed glass display cabinet on the left as you enter the shop from the front. Also a page will be added to the website, noting these invitational events.   A new Golf Genius System will be introduced replacing the old system we’ve been using.  It should be in use by the end of September 2017.


New Business- There will be an advisory committee to review standing rules and report back to the members in January 2018. The intention is to have everyone receive a copy of the rules, and to sign indicating that the rules have been, received, read, and understood.

General Membership Meeting

January 17, 2017

President Judy Rice called the meeting to order at 12:21p.m. followed by the pledge of allegiance.

Secretary's Report- Kathy Mello made the motion to accept the minutes from the November 1, 2016 General Membership Meeting as emailed to the membership. Betty Healy seconded. The motion passed.

Treasurer's Report- Beth Gillette reported a budgeted amount of $2,468 for the beginning of 2017. Please refer to the attached Treasurer's Report. There was a discussion about still being able to put in $2 in the Hole-in-One Pot, and also, still being able to join the Ringer Board, that Carol Reynolds is in charge of this year. Betty Healy made a motion to accept the Treasurer's Report and Joan Clement seconded. Motion carried.

Vice President's Report- Roberta Kesslar, also Chairperson for Away Special Events, spoke about her preparations for this year's BFB's Women's 18 Hole League Invitational. Roberta has updated the Invitational Form Letter and is sending it to participating clubs' women's golf associations, inviting their participation. This year's Invitational is called, Mad Hatter's Tea Party, and will be held on March 28. Roberta presented Paula Gerad with a Hole in One Award for 2016.

Director League of Play- Joanne Plasse summarized some new scoring procedures. She will be returning incorrect score cards to a group making

an error. Copies of their scorecard will be emailed to the foursome with a description of the error that was made. This is in an effort to reduce the number of ESC errors. The handicap Chairperson will be entering all players scores on a hole by hole basis, instead of total score. Membership was reminded of a standing rule, and subsequent penalty for playing on League Day and leaving for any reason other than illness or emergency. This standing rule has been in effect since March 2000. There was clarification on when to pick up the ball, when excessive strokes occur. A golfer is to use common sense, and record the most likely score. The player must evaluate, and use her best judgment. By picking up, the golfer is disqualified from winning a money prize for the round. If the hole is not counted in a league game, a golfer could pick up and take their max handicap for that hole. Any members with requests to play with certain golfers or have suggestions for games, Joanne will do her best to accommodate these.

Handicapping Chairperson- Betty Healy had no report.

Special Events Chairperson- Sharlene Coates, CTP Coordinator, reported a balance of $94.00 would be allocated for a bar bill for the Farmer in the Dell players. Gert Finnegan volunteered to cook for this event, and provided the choice of a meat and a meatless selection.

Social Chairperson- Julia Strom asked for suggestions concerning the Holiday party.

Membership Chairperson- Terry Perry reported there are four new members. Jackie Dukes, Elaine Parsons, June Sotir and Pat Saxton will join the 63 members of this year's league.

Sunshine Chairperson- Judy Rice reported that we are supporting our members that have been ill, had accidents in their family and have lost a family member. A card was circulated to sign for Diane Paradis, who has been ill. A card was sent to Kathy Mello, whose brother passed away. Gail Morrison, also received a card for her son-in-law and grand daughter, who were critically injured in a car accident. A GoFundMe site has been established for the family.

Rules Chairperson- Cookie Shaw explained the answers to three rules questions. Drainage pipes: Ernie has designated these permanent hazards with red lines. All red hazard rules apply; no grounding of club, if unplayable, hit a provisional, one stroke penalty. Gravel paths: Example between holes 17 and 18, take the closest point of relief. Wiping ball on the green: You may wipe off the ball on the green, as long as you are not testing the putting surface.

Golf Committee Chairperson: No report

Presidents Report: Judy Rice reinforced what had already been stated concerning incorrect scoring of cards, and reminded golfers that you do not have to play your ball all the way to the hole on non-team events.

Old Business: Brenda Duke motioned to adopt Article VI Section 1: The elected officers of the Association shall be: President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Director of League Play, Handicapping Chairperson, Rules Chairperson, and Social Chairperson. Marilyn Coulbourne seconded.

The motion passed.
