The Niners golf league just keeps growing, so welcome our newest members Richard Katz and Neil Anderson. Tee it up, guys.
Just another timely reminder, our high heat levels can be very dangerous. One of our members experienced the effects of the heat after playing a few weeks ago. Be heat smart—cover up, hydrate, and use SPF on all exposed skin areas.

Hey guys, I know it is a bit early, but you may want to mark your 2024 March calendar to highlight the annual Hamilton High-Niners Play Day. As usual, we will have members of the Huskies Boys Golf Team, accompanied by Coach Steve Kanner, visit and team up with our members. As this is a fundraiser for the team, we hope you will make a generous contribution to help the boys get to those all-important tournaments. And, who knows, you may get to play with the next generation of PGA professionals.
The Hamilton Tournament has been a successful event for years, always under the direction of our current Board Secretary David Mork and will now be arranged by Game Manager Jerry Richards and Board Treasurer Bob Deken. Look for further details in upcoming columns.
Sadly, I must announce the passing of one of our longtime members, Bill Bartoo. Bill joined the Niners in 2008. Bill and wife Paula also played in the Nine Hole Couples for many years. Currently, we have no information regarding a service. We offer our heartfelt condolences to Bill’s daughter Michele and the Bartoo family.
