Now that summer has ended, the snowbirds and those of us who travel during the summer are trickling back to our lovely winter sanctuary. Having been gone for the last four months, I was personally impressed with the condition of the courses and grateful for having the opportunity to live in our wonderful “piece of paradise”!
To those who have been gone… Welcome Back!
On September 4, Craig Annis joined the elite group of IMGA golfers who have made holes-in-one in 2018 by wielding his trusty 9 Iron on the 9th hole. He joins three other 2018 IMGA Hole-in-One Club members: John Sinks (15th hole, April 17, 6 Iron), Doug Currie (13th hole, April 3) and Jim Ray (13th hole, March 20).

New Chelsea Sign-Up Policy:
Over the past few months, the IMGA Board has attempted to improve the Chelsea sign up participation, without much success. Each week, we seem to have 10 to 15 percent of the field that have asked to be added into the completed pairings. We have always tried to accommodate all of these players, but the volume of changes has become unmanageable, and it also contributes to imbalances in the team games.
Therefore, the IMGA Executive Board has taken the following steps to improve our process, effective May 15:
* The Chelsea sign-up deadline will continue to be noon Friday.
* The list of players who have signed up through Chelsea will be posted on the IMGA website by the end of the day Friday under the pairings tabs. The alphabetized list of names will be labeled Chelsea List AM or Chelsea List PM, and will be located under the pairings tab.
* If you check the Chelsea List and your name is missing, you can add on until noon Sunday by calling the Pro Shop, 480-895-0614. We will no longer accept requests to be added on after noon Sunday.
* The final tee sheets will be available on the IMGA website by end of day on Sunday.
* Cancellations can be made at any time prior to play on Tuesday.
