Golf Rounds Report

FLCC golf rounds update as of the end of August.  We are on pace for over 17,000 rounds of golf played in Fawn Lake in 2020.  As a comparison, two years ago (2018) we played just under 12,000.  That’s a 41% increase in just 2 years!

Big thanks to our great operational golf managers (Bret, Drew, Dave, Garrett, and Ryan) and their staff for all the hard work growing our club in a difficult environment!

FLCC Women's Golf Update

Bette Connelly is leaving Fawn Lake and the LGA, moving to Urbana. She has been an active supporter of all things Golf and cherished member and President of the LGA. Thank you, Bette, for everything you have done for our Club, we will miss you! Ginny McGrath has assumed the Presidency of the LGA and Brenda Sites is Treasurer. 

Women's Match Play has been completed. Becki Davis was the winner of the final over Mary Ryan, 2&1. These matches have validated our hole handicap update from earlier this year, with every match extending at least through hole 16.

 

Three members of women's golf played in the most recent FredAm with 2 finishing in the top 4:  Kristin Shifflett finished 1st and Becki Davis took 4th.  Way to go!!

 

Three members competed in the VSGA Stroke Play Championships held this year at Kingsmill (River Course). Brenda Sites competed in the Senior Division. Becki Davis and Roberta Karch competed in the Super Senior Division. Becki Davis took Runner-Up.

 

The VSGA Women's Team Matches are being held 9/1-9/3 at Devil's Knob Golf Course and Fawn Lake is once again fielding a team. Members are Kristin Shifflett, Brenda Sites, Deborah McManus, Carol Pendry, Roberta Karch, and Becki Davis.  Good luck to our FLCC Team! 

 

Lastly, Sandy Forville graciously took the time and effort to make masks for every member of the LGA. They are truly wonderful and much appreciated!

Course Update

All 18 holes and the 2 practice greens have been aerated.  After the rain last night, the course remains unplayable today (Wednesday).  We are also unable to mow.  We will open for play on Thursday with tee times starting at 0800.  Cart path only, it will be messy. 

Additionally, on Monday, August 24, the course will be closed until 3:00pm at which time play can resume under normal Monday Golf Rules.  This will allow maintenance time to finish the sand top-dressing needed for aeration and catch up on mowing.  We have a very busy golf calendar for the remainder of the year and taking care of this much-needed maintenance will serve us well.  We appreciate your support!

Golf Course Maintenance

Dave and his staff are working very hard keeping our course in shape during these hot, dry conditions.  As you have seen, they are hand-watering the course daily.  If you come across them during your round, please allow them a few minutes to finish what they are doing and move out of your way before playing your shot.  They will not hold up play for long.  Sometimes we assume they are going to be there a while and we get impatient.  Please do not hit into them.  The safety of our staff is always our primary concern.  Thank you for the consideration and we appreciate your support!

Update on COVID-19 Temporary Golf Policy Changes

We added restrictions to our golf operations to ensure the safety of our members and keep our course open. We are slowly removing those restrictions.  

  • Effective immediately, the noodle hole inserts have been removed and members are authorized to remove the flagstick as per the Rules of Golf.  
  • Effective Tuesday, July 14, we will be playing the ball down in the bunkers and raking the bunker after a shot will be required. The temporary sand bunker "lift, clean, and place" rule will no longer be in effect.  
    • It is recommended that players use a golf towel or hand sanitizer as appropriate. The safety of our members is still our top priority!  
    • Bunker rakes will be left in the bunkers, parallel to the line of play and in a low spot (if possible).  
    • Any ball resting against a bunker rake will be played in accordance with USGA Rules of Golf: 15.2, posted below.
  • Single rider carts are still optional but not mandatory. This is the only COVID restriction still in effect after Tuesday. Reminder: no more than 2 carts in the fairway per hole mandatory.

USGA Rules of Golf: Rule 15.2
If a player’s ball moves while he or she is removing a movable obstruction:
  • There is no penalty, and
  • The ball must be replaced on its original spot (which if not known must be estimated)
A rake is a movable obstruction. When a ball comes to rest leaning against a rake in the bunker, the player may remove the obstruction. If the ball moves as a result of moving the obstruction, he must replace it. If the ball will not come to rest on the spot where it is placed, he must try again. If the ball will not come to rest on the spot after the second try to place it, the player must place the ball at the nearest spot where it will not move that is no closer to the hole.

In June 2020, we played 2,511 rounds of golf.  That is a record for FLCC!  Keep in mind, this is mostly member play.  We have had almost no outside events.

As a comparison vs 2018, that's an 85% increase, vs 2019 a 34% increase.

Our lessons and equipment sales are also at record levels.

We thank our current loyal members and our many new members for their support and we look forward to another busy month on the course!

Blue Flags

In the interest of the safety and enjoyment of our golfers, Blue Flag golf carts, on hot days (>80-deg), are authorized to take more than two carts into the fairway unless Cart Path Only restrictions are in place. Once we return to two riders per golf cart, normal golf cart rules will apply.
