Welcome to the Tuesday (TAGG) and Saturday (SAGG) Afternoon Golf Groups web
After talking to several of the
players on Saturday, we thought it might be a good idea if Lee was allowed
to play from the Friendly tees if he wanted to. I asked him if he wanted to
and without a second of hesitation he said "YES"!
I thought it would be fairly easy to reprogram my computer program to
include the yellow tees, but was I ever wrong! For some reason I can't get
my program to accept more than 3 different tees. So I asked Jim Thompson,
our only player that plays from the blue tees, if he would mind moving back
to the whites. He agreed.
Then I realized that I didn't have the newest version of all the scorecards,
so Felicia and I took a 45 mile golf cart ride and visited all the
championship courses to get a card.
It then only took me about 4 - 5 hours to reprogram everything.
I am not going to allow other
players to play from the yellow tees unless their handicap goes way up.
For now, nobody can play from the blue tees, although I am working to fix
The scorecards still show the yardage from the blue tees along with the
white and green tees. I don't have room for yellow tee yardage.
The biggest problem that might arise is, Lee starts winning an unusual
amount of greens. If this should happen, we will all have to meet and
discuss the problem.
Lee's handicap is based on the yellow tees and he will have between 5 & 7
strokes removed as per USGA guidelines for mixed play.
If you have any concerns,
talk to me.

Usually this time of the year is a royal pain, but
with The Villages decision to not over-seed the fairways, it might be easier
The clubs are going to be closed for 3 days for seeding then reopened. They
say it will take up to 2 weeks to get back to regular mowing heights on the
I will not
be checking to see how long it has been since a course was over-seeded. So
we may end up on fuzzy greens.
If you think we should wait the 2 weeks before playing, let me know and I
will let you make the tee time requests.
