Golf Newsletter Article for May 2020

Hello my fellow golfers. Some golf courses are now open for play. Sorry to say at this time that Teleli Golf Club is still closed due to the Coronavirus. Hopefully it will be open in May. This however does not mean we can have a Skins Game or Tournament. Any SIR activity has to be approved by the SIR State Board. If May is still a no-go for us I am looking at June where we have a Tournament scheduled on June 16th at Castleoaks Golf Club. They were shut down for awhile but are now open to the public.

So now, What is there to do while we can’t get out and play? For one, if you have short carpet you can set up a cup or glass and practice putting. Don’t let your golf swing go stale. Get outside and just swing a club…you don’t need to be hitting a ball to keep your swing fresh. Look at your clubs and make sure the grooves are clean and the grips are in good shape. Maybe it is time to purchase a new set of clubs. There are plenty of good deals online at different golf equipment sights. I know I for one is chopping at the bit to get out and play, and can’t wait to get a Tournament organized for all of you (even though it is not the easiest thing to do). Just be patient my friends and I will keep everyone informed of ANY news I get on course openings.

April 2020

The decision has been made.  “All activities” both Branch and State are officially cancelled effective immediately until the virus pandemic is behind us.  I will contact each of you to discuss where we go from here.  Region Golf Chairs please inform you Area and Branch Golf Chairs and make it clear as in the note below all future golf tournament are to be cancelled.   If there are any problems with contracts with courses please let me know and I will assist in getting legal assistance provided.  This information has been sent to each branch Big and Little Sir.   See note below from SIR State President.
