Message from Ross Buckendahl – Head Golf Course Superintendent
Starting on or about January 12 and for approximately 60 days, the tee boxes on hole #1 at Ironwood will be moved up to about 150-190 yards from the front of the green. Cart traffic will be diverted to the right side of the fairway to keep people away from the well drilling as much as possible. This is necessary to allow for construction traffic that will occur due to the heavy machinery for well drilling that will be taking place on the left side of the hole.
Our new webmaster Wayne Karp has been busy making some changes and additions on our IMGA website. Menu changes, fewer key strokes and keeping a list of the last several weeks’ worth of results are just a couple of the changes and more to come. Check it out. http://iwmensgolf.com/
Course Conditions and Maintenance
Our golf maintenance staff has asked that we report issues to them directly so they can address them quickly. As an example, if you see a sprinkler leak or standing water where there should not be any water, report 1) the problem, 2) the time and 3) the location on the course. Send email to Chris King at [email protected] or call 480 317-3636.
The IMGA Member/Guest tournament is scheduled for February 13. Availability is limited, so please get your application and monies in as soon as possible. Applications are available at Ironwood and on the IMGA website.
Our scoring team is requesting volunteers to assist in recording scores in our new software, Golf Genius, every Tuesday after both the AM and PM shotguns. Contact Dan Smith at [email protected] to volunteer or for additional information.
Our scoring committee has suggested that it is easier for them if everyone turns in their “official” scorecard with Gross Scores only. There are numerous errors each week with many cards that are turned in. The program automatically takes the strokes off for handicap, adjusts for ESC scores and totals each individual round. If golfers want to know their net scores or points, they can use the second card to calculate them. It also helps to write legibly.
