Important Message from Greens Chair
Please do not tamper with the irrigation valves!

Please DO NOT touch the irrigation valves around the golf course when you are playing. Options are picking up, playing with them on or waiting for the greens crew to turn them off. Our current pump system is ancient and once it is on, it is on. It will not shut off automatically when pressure gets too high. The consequences are blowing our pump station or bursting pipes throughout the course. Thank you for your co-operation.

Alan Morton, Greens Chair

Match & Handicap

Please continue to play your matches as close to the dates indicated on the flights as possible. We've had a lot of tournaments and special events so I've relaxed the deadlines.  Thanks and get those results in.

A reminder that the Senior Men's Intersectional Practice Rounds (Aug 5th 1:30 p.m.) and Championship (Aug 6th 11 a.m.) as well as the Junior Club Championships (Aug 1 and 2 tees closed at 7:30 a.m.) are just around the corner.  Come out and cheer on our Senior Men and Juniors!

 

Saturday August 3rd is the Dan Main Shield proceeding the Ladies Cocktail Party.  Tees close at 11:30 a.m.  Shotgun start at 1 p.m.  This is a mixed Low Net 2 Ball foursome played as alternate shot with Men teeing off the odd numbered holes and Ladies off the even numbered holes.

 

Please check our fixture calendar online or call the shack before playing a match as the course may have some tees closed or the course may be closed itself.  Thanks for your patience.

 

Here is some improved wording for our ground under repair areas:

 

Abnormal Course Conditions (Including Immovable Obstructions)

Relief for Ball in Ground Under Repair

Example:  the muck on # 3 as well as the dirt on the hill on # 9 can be considered Ground Under Repair

 

Q. My ball is in ground under repair – what are my options?

A. You may either play your ball as it lies from the ground under repair or take free

relief. To take relief, you must find the nearest point of complete relief from the ground

under repair and drop your original ball or another ball away from the ground under

repair and within one club-length of that point not nearer the hole (see Rule 16.1).

 

Thanks and see you on the tees

Ladies Update

Congratulations to the first place team in ‘Dunany Vice’ of Angie Macleod, Dianne Burk and Lois Finch who won the El Chapo Cup. One stroke behind them were the Vice Squad Runners-Up Tina Moore, Sue Lavoie and Dorothy Hadley. Third place went to Detectives Caroline Roy, Anna Robertson and Jane Fehr. Everyone else was…busted!

 

The Culinary Champion in “Stick a Fork in me . . . I’m Done!” was Lois Finch. Second and third place in the bake-off went to Annabelle Wood and Val McNicholl respectively where all three managed to extend their food budgets to a 10th hole! Four other contestants’ pies were baked to a crisp in the ninth hole. As Chef Ramsay was heard to say while watching the ladies play golf: “@#$%^&, these girls are good!”

 

 Next week’s tournament is ‘Whack ‘n’ Hack’ where ‘Chat ‘n’ Whack’ is also encouraged.

 

MATCH PLAY
Thank you to everyone participating in our three on-going match play competitions. The next round is to be completed by August 6th.

 

CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP

Sign–up sheets for the Ladies Club Championship will be posted in the Starter Shack. Dates are the 9, 10 & 11 of August. Dunany is classified as a No-Drone Zone, so you have to show up to play, watch or take in all the action!

Dunany Ladies Championship Reception August 11th

A reminder to buy your bracelets for the Ladies Championship Reception, now available at the Starters Shack for $5.00 per person. I would appreciate if everyone could purchase their bracelets by Monday, August 5th, so we have an idea of the number of people who will be attending the reception so we can order the food accordingly.


The bar will be open at 12:00 on all three days. Hope to see you all there!


Thanks,
June

DCC Heritage Club House Renovation Project- Fundraising Update

Following the great Fundraising Kick-Off hosted by Dianne & Scott Burk last week, several more pledges have been received – bringing Curran Lake to the enviable position of 41.5% of their families participating in this project.  Congratulations Curran!

 

We will continue tracking participation lake by lake.  The next fundraiser will be hosted by Pierre Demers and Bonnie and Heather Swaine on Boyd Lake.  For Boyd Lake families, please mark Friday, August 9 on your calendars.  Boyd is currently only at 5.7% - lots of time to catch up to Curran!

 

Plans are in the works for a fundraiser on Black Lake TBA.

 

Thank you to Barb & Neil Hindle who donated two sets of Canadians hockey tickets to help raise money and awareness for this initiative at the Mike Roy Golf Tournament last Saturday.  The tickets attracted a lot of attention and we raised another $750.  Jim Cameron and Jean McGibbon were the lucky winners. Thank you to everyone who bought tickets and to Diane Hislop for selling.  It was a great evening in memory of Mike

 

For fundraising updates please check out the DCC Heritage Fundraising Lakes Leaderboard.  There is one in the Starters’ Shack and another in the Club House.  You can also pick up pledge forms and drop them off confidentially in our “Pledge Box”, or contact our Fundraising chair, Lynn Palmer at Lynn.palmer@rogers.com

 

Every member counts; every gift counts!  Together we can make this happen.
