Forward Tees

July 7th, 2013 by lnetter

 Members,

At the club meeting today, a motion was passed to allow all members who are 70 years old or older to play from the forward tees, if the member chooses to play there.
 
I have attached the newest handicaps for all active players and included both white and yellow tees at Grand Marais.
 
The members also voted, on recommendation of the Forward Tees Committee, to allow Jerry Cole to play from the forward tees, if  he chooses to do so.

Hole-in-One

August 11th, 2010 by lnetter

Grand Marais Golf  Course, Centreville  IL- July 26, 2010

During  match play competition between Par or Better Golf Club and Pin High Golf Club, Lawrence Netterville of  St. Louis Missouri scored a hole-in-one on the 135 yard Par 3 14th hole using a choked down 7 iron. The shot was witnessed by Raymond Howard, Levester Heavens and Elton Sims. When Netterville was asked about the shot he said ” I knew it was a good shot as soon as I hit it. The shot felt good and it was going straight at the Pin, then the ball disappeared, I thought  maybe I had  knocked the ball though the green or the ball was behind Pin out of my line of sight. After I had looked every place that I thought the ball might have been, the guys said “look in the the hole man!” I looked in the hole and there it was, my 1st hole-in-one.” Netterville’s ace was the 1st  hole-in-one on the new Par 3 14th hole at Grand Marais Golf Club.
