THE GOLF COURSE HAS BEEN FROZEN AND COVERED IN SNOW AND ICE AND TODAY'S RAIN AND WARMING WEATHER BRING MORE WATER TO THE COURSE. 

BUT

Here's the forecast for Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, & Friday:

Sunny and 57, 62, 52, and 48 degrees, respectively.  

Thereafter, for the next five days the forecast is for rain and possibly more snow mixed in.

WHEN YOU NEXT PLAY, THE COURSE WILL BE

WET AND VERY SOFT 

FOR AN EXTENDED PERIOD OF TIME!!!

When you next play:

DO:  

KEEP ALL 4 WHEELS ON THE CART PATH---ALWAYS!

(If you must park along the fairway prior to arriving at the green, park adjacent to the fairway side of the path (ON THE PATH) to provide room for your partners to pass on (ON THE PATH) on the side away from the fairway.

DON'T: 

    - CUT CORNERS IN THE ZIGS AND ZAGS OF THE CART PATH

    - DON'T PASS PARKED CARTS BY TURNING ONTO THE COURSE

    - DON'T PARK OFF THE PATHS AT TEE BOXES & GREENS.

Welcome to your Rules and Handicap Committee's first installment  of "Chatter" about rules, interpretations, and "what do I do if...?"  These presentations will hopefully be a training aide and refresher for all Fawn Lake Golf Members.  The R&H Committee solicits your questions about or recommendations for specific rulings for situations you may have encountered or wondered about here at Fawn Lake.  If appropriate, your input may end up being explained and presented like the one to follow.  In any case, the R&H folks will get back to you with an answer to your query.

                                        You can email to: RulesandHandicap@fawnlakecc.com                                                                                  

Relax, read, and learn from R&H #21-1 regarding Penalty Area Play .  Click the link below:

FAWN LAKE RULES AND HANDICAP COMMITTEE

GOT A QUESTION ABOUT THE NEW WORLD HANDICAP SYSTEM; NEED AN INTERPRETATION OF THE RULES OF GOLF AS THEY APPLY TO A SPECIFIC HOLE OR SITUATION YOU ENCOUNTERED HERE AT FAWN LAKE; WANT CLARIFICATION ON THE NEW INDIVIDUAL HOLE OR PLAYER HANDICAPS?

THERE ARE TWO NEW AVENUES OF COMMUNICATION THAT OUR R&H FOLKS HAVE AVAILABLE FOR YOU:

    - The R&H folks will be frequently distributing (via the Golf BLOG and/or GAZETTE) specific applications of the Rules of Golf as they apply to certain individual holes at Fawn Lake and/or situations that players may have found themselves in here at Fawn Lake and might have hoped for an on course Rules Official to resolve their situation.

    - We now have a direct "group email" for the Rules and Handicap Committee that you can use to send a question or summary of play that you experienced needing further interpretation or ruling.  Some of your inputs may be reviewed and turned into a presentation distributed to our members or you may just receive an individual response.  Feel free to use the email now and please be patient as we get this new communication to a successful kickoff.

    * Fawn Lake Rules and Handicap Committee email:  rulesandhandicap@fawnlakecc.com
