Jim Wegman, Publicity
The high heat is here, and the Niners are playing through it. Frozen water bottles and sunblock should be stocked in every cart. A frozen washcloth or Frog Towel is always welcome in this heat for a mid-round wipe down. Don’t forget to pre-hydrate the evening before play, drink water or a sports beverage on every hole, and reapply sunblock after a cool wipe down.
We have a new member. Gentlemen, let’s welcome John Butch Bosselli to the Niners.

Rules Reminder: Lost or ball out of bounds. For a two-stroke penalty, a player may choose to drop a ball anywhere from the spot the ball was lost or out of bounds, to two club lengths into the fairway, no closer to the hole. Further rules can be found on the first page of the Niner’s website.
We will continue to observe lift, clean, and place through August, as the courses remain very wet and the grass is sparse in some areas. It is the player’s responsibility to know the rules and observe them during league play.
The tee times will have to continue. This allows the grounds crew enough time to ready the course for play. Staff shortages are an ongoing problem.
