Let there be peace in the world and to all a good drive. I hope the holidays where good to you and yours and Santa gave you everything you asked for.
With that lets get this 2016 party started. We have 2 tournaments scheduled in January; the first is on January 17, Sunday. If you haven't already signed up you can contact our new V.P., and tournament director Cliff Aichele. He is very organized and has all the information to sign you up. The other tournament is at Recreation Park on January 31, also on a Sunday. The leader of the away trips this year is the infamous Dennis Tramer. He has done everything for this club, and has done this job with Jim Ridenour the last couple years, so you are in very good hands. Contact him and he will take care of you.
Team play starts this month. We have a Thursday team captained by Mike Moriatis and a Saturday team lead by Noah Busch. Good luck teams play hard and represent Eldo proudly. Bring us back the Championship.
I am very proud to be the President of this fine Golf Club and look forward to leading the troops the next 2 years. With the help of my 12 Directors, including first year director, Omar Diaz, we are here to continue to make this the best club in the area and the most fun. Welcome to 2016.
The final home tournament of 2015, Christmas at El Dorado, was played on Dec.12. It started a little cold but finished in beautiful sunshine. We rented the course for the whole day and had every hole covered with players and then some. We had 180 players and everyone was on their best behavior and we all finished before dark.
The results show, in Flight 1, the gross winner was Team Followell at 142. The net winner was the Hasselman gang at 133. The flight 2 gross winner was Team Holloway at 156. The net winner was Team Leininger again at 137. Flight 3 gross winner, a big surprise, was Team Kuehn at 167. Net winner was no surprise, the Bartley gang at 133. There were 8 players who were net 70 or under and Greg Ramsey was the lowest at 66. Good job Greg. All the results are posted and you can see how close you came to cashing.
Finally, I want to personally thank the entire Men's Club for all their love and support the last 2 years and I hope you give Cliff the same respect in the next 2 years of his reign as Tournament Director.
Peace and Love,
