D.O.G.S. Penultimate Round at Modern Golf & Country Club

Hail the D.O.G.S.!!!!!,


43 players turned in cards following our penultimate round at Modern. Players were able to get an early start off of 1 and 10 and were off without any issue. The weather cooperated for most of the round with the sun making for a hot day on the course. Towards the end of the round rain began falling but it was not enough to stop play. Players persevered and finished their rounds.


Following the round we were treated to some delicious KFC chicken wraps courtesy of Shivashish Pandey. Thank you Shivashish!




Pace of play was good for most, but slow groups caused others to be held up, taking away from the enjoyment of the day. Players are reminded to play at a reasonable pace; stay in touch with the group in front and do not hold up groups behind. This is noted on our Etiquette page and is common practice in golf. If you are falling behind and unable to keep up please let the group behind you through.


Welcome to Colin Shifton and Ameesh Anand who came out for their first D.O.G.S. round. We hope to see more of you in the future.


Matt Timbrell brought his A game this week shooting a 72 and taking 4 prizes; Longest Drive, Drive & Pitch, Lowest Gross and Runner Up. Well done Matt! She may not have won any prizes but Kathy Scalabre was excited to have her first ever birdie. Well done! Ruth Lajousky was our Weekly Champion with 42 points.


Congratulations to all of this week's winners!

The Qualifying Round of the President's Challenge comes an end on March 27. Those of you still having rounds to play should contact your opponent and schedule your match this week.


With 1 round left to play the race for the Big Dog is very tight with 0.2 points separating the first 3 players and only 4.3 between 1st and 20th. There are some decent players who could have a good day and storm up to the front with a good round. The top 3 have closed out all bogies and will be looking for birdies on Saturday. Gary Danskin has already cleaned out a space for another Lowest Gross trophy.


Past champions are reminded to wear their Blue Jackets Saturday.

The Rules and what it means when we play.


Putting With Non-Putter Clubs

Question: On large greens, a player's ball might be on the putting surface but still be 20-plus yards from the hole. Is it permissible to chip the ball instead of putt it? Is it considered gauche?
