Not Signed Up for the Niners’ Rules Class?

 

Dear Niner,

If you have NOT signed up for the Niners’ Rules Class, this email is for you.

The Niners’ Executive Board was informed by Chris Bensel, PGA Director of Golf/Operations Manager at Charbonneau Golf Club, of some upcoming changes in both reservations and player rules that you need to know to navigate this 2021 Niner season.

As the Rules Committee, we’ve been asked by Chris and our Executive Board to make sure everyone understands why the changes are being implemented and what those changes are.

In order that everyone receives the same information, and not through the grapevine, the Rules Committee will be conducting a clinic to explain the details. Since these changes directly relate to procedural changes in both reservations and rules, it’s imperative that we all attend a session.  Our goal is to have every Niner attend a clinic before our Regular Play Day, April 13.

Seating is limited to 20 people at each session and a couple of sessions are almost full.  Each session will be 60 minutes and be in the Charbonneau County Club dining room.  Please select one of these sessions:

Wednesday, April 7 at 6:30-7:30 PM
Thursday, April 8 at 10-11 AM
Thursday, April 8 at 1-2 PM
Thursday, April 8 at 3-4 PM
Friday, April 9 at 10-11 AM
Friday, April 9 at 1-2 PM

Sign up by emailing Alice Swartz at alice@fpm.org, indicating the date/time you would like to attend. (Please give three options for date/time.) Remember, sessions are limited to 20 people so reserve your spot ASAP.

Thank you.

Deb Nemes and Sue Schneider

Niner Mixer Reminder

We had lots of rain for the Mixer on the 24th. Three brave Niners didn’t let the wet and cold keep them off the course!!
>
> This will be our last Wednesday Mixer- March 31 – and the weather is supposed to be great. Be sure to call the ProShop for a tee time and you will get the next available (no special requests) and the Pro Shop pairs us.

I hope you have all enjoyed the Wednesday Mixers and are looking forward to our 2021 season. Remember WELCOME BACK on April 6 and season starts April 13.

Let’s Brighten Julia Beaton’s Day

Dear Niners:

Our fellow golfer and past co-President, Julie Beaton had  heart surgery yesterday afternoon and the surgery went well.  Her sister and fellow Niner, Mary Jane Hunt, called and said Julie wanted us to know. Mary Jane said she knows Julie would enjoy cards.

Stay tuned for further information on a food train to help her through her recovery.

Cards can be mailed to

Julie Beaton

8221 S.W. Mariner’s Drive

Wilsonville, Or 97070

Let’s all send Get Well Cards and let her know she is in our thoughts and prayers.

Thanks Everyone!

Mary Fieweger

President

Niner Mixer Reminder

We had another beautiful day for the March 17th Mixer. Cory started our day with a review of the lessons from the previous two weeks, then demonstrated how to approach your shots from hills or uneven ground and how to line up your shots. As we played, we heard Niners saying -“Oh, Cory said to line up this way” or to “place the club here and it works!!” You are encouraged to come for Cory’s Wednesday lesson at 12:30 before we tee off for the Mixer.
>
> We had a late start because of an earlier frost delay but it gave us time to mingle. As I was walking up to the tee, I thought about how many Niners -who I just knew by name before – that I have been able to meet, have a conversation with and get to know – all because of the Mixer.
>
> You only have two more chances to join us on the Wednesday Mixer- March 24 and 31. In order to speed up play, we are adding tee times – now starting at 1:01 and with the last tee time at 2:35 and will be pairing 3 players instead of 4.

So call the Proshop and schedule your tee time between 1:01 and 2:35 (no special requests) and the Pro Shop pairs us. That’s part of the fun.

NINERS

Another good day on the course at the NINER MIXER on MARCH 10.

IT WAS BEAUTIFUL DAY TO ENJOY THE GREEN COURSE (until the rain came in the afternoon).

Cory Larro started us off at 1:00 with another lesson – this time on Ball Positioning, followed by a general Q&A with those attending.  Next Wednesday, Cory will begin with hitting our drivers followed by a Q&A.  These mini-lessons are very helpful and it is worth your time to join us at 1:00 each Wednesday. Thanks, Cory, for helping us improve our game!

So, join the fun and sign up for the Niner Mixer every Wednesday afternoon in March, with Cory’s lesson at 1:00 and tee times starting at 1:35 to 2:43.  We have 8 tee times reserved for foursomes.

Just call the Pro Shop to be added to the Tee Sheet for the Wednesday Niner Mixer. Remember, this is a mixer, so you will be scheduled with the next available tee time. The foursomes are paired on a first come, first served basis. Please don’t request certain times or pairings.  If you need to change your time, rearrange with other Niners rather than asking the Pro Shop staff. But, as always, if you can’t play, please cancel through the Pro Shop.

Each golfer is responsible for paying their own golf fee at check-in time and posting their score on GHIN at the end of play.

Niner Mixer Reminder

NINERS –

What a great time we had at our first NINER MIXER on MARCH 3.

28 NINERS HAD A BEAUTIFUL DAY TO ENJOY THE GREEN COURSE. IT WAS SO GREAT TO SEE THE RESULTS OF THE HARD WORK ALL THE VOLUNTEERS HAVE DONE AND ARE DOING TO CLEAN UP OUR COURSE AFTER THE ICE STORM. A BIG THANK YOU to them.

Cory Larro, Charbonneau’s Assistant Pro, started the event with a great instructional session on chipping stance, club placement and swing. You could hear “THANK YOU, CORY” all afternoon long as the golfers practiced what Cory preached!

Social Members – Rosemary Ricken, Mary Tillery and Karen Cary – were at the first tee to give each golfer a Charbonneau pouch filled with treats and at the 9th hole to wave the checkered flag and offer one of Mary’s great cookies.

So join the fun and sign up for the Niner Mixer every Wednesday afternoon in March, starting at 1:35 to 2:43. We have 8 tee times reserved for foursomes and if participation is good in March, we can continue this through our regular season.

In addition, at 1:00 prior to play each Wednesday, Cory will continue to give a brief review of golf techniques.

Just call the Pro Shop to be added to the Tee Sheet for the Niner Mixer and you will be scheduled with the next available tee time. The foursomes are paired on a first come, first served basis. Each golfer is responsible for paying their own golf fee at check-in time and posting their score on GHIN at the end of play.

If you have any questions, contact Karen Siegel at ksiegel44@gmail.com.
