Prior to play, Dan Dedo a Rules Committee member shared a “20 Most Important Changes to the Rules of Golf 2019” list with the Members.  This review prompted some lively discussion and questions about the actual interpretation of the recent USGA rule changes.

Dr. Darrell Richards announced a Club Field Day at Desert Canyon Golf Course that will take place on Wednesday, June 12.  Dr. Darrell is working with the Desert Canyon Men’s Golf Club to schedule a team competition at Desert Canyon to be followed by a second team vs. team competition at the Chelan Golf Course later this summer.  Tony Montoya announced a second Club Field Day at Three Lakes Golf Course that will be held on Tuesday, August 6.

George Nickle, the 2019 Secretary/Treasurer announced the 2019 Senior Men’s Club Memorial Match Play Tournament will take place during the months of June and July.  Due to the popularity of this double elimination tournament members were encouraged to sign up immediately because space is limited.  

Tony Montoya presented new club logo artwork options to the members for their review and approval.  A new logo design was selected along with the color “green” that matches the Chelan High School team’s color.  It was decided to replicate the Chelan High School color because the Men’s Golf Club and Senior Men’s Golf Club support the Chelan High School boys’ and girls’ golf teams with student scholarships and golf equipment needs.   

After play the members enjoyed lunch and beverages provided by CJ’s on the Course restaurant.  CJ’s on the Course offers discounts on food and non-alcoholic beverages to the Senior Men’s Club Members after play every Wednesday.
