If your handicap is an odd number, instead of using .5 you are going to use the larger number on the front nine and the smaller number on the back nine. For example, if your handicap is 27 subtract 14 from your gross score on the front to get your net score, and similarly subtract 13 from your gross score on the back to get your net. The front nine rating is higher so you can use the higher "half" and we don't have to worry about subtracting .5's.
Now we need a sun dance for Tuesday!

Given this very odd year and the fact that we cannot do a formal Closing Field Day, your Games Captain has suggested we do a Nassau Game for Tuesday, September 29. It is an easy game and one that can be decided on the day but still brings a little fun and gamewomanship (now that has stumped spellcheck!) into the day. Signup will be digital.
- I suggest a $2 Nassau bet. So bring 3 toonies or 6 loonies!
- If you lose all your bets, the most you can lose is $6.
- Assuming a $2 bet,
- Win low net for the front 9, win $6.00 ($8.00 including your own $2.00).
- Win low net for the back 9, win $6.00.
- Win low net for 18 holes you win $6.00 OR $18.00 if you won all 3 bets.

Yesterday, Ann Abbott, Laurie Pudwell and Diane Arsenault were walking up to the 5th. As Diane was approaching the area she noticed something shiny high up in a spruce tree. Sure enough, some poor golfer has hooked his ball into the trees and from the height of it, it was still flying when it lodged itself in the branches 10 feet off the ground. He probably looked for a long time never realizing that the ball was over his head.

So.....since it's almost mid-August, we thought we would give you a celebration update on our 2020DC (during COVID) golf season......
Ariane has joined the break 90 Club!
Jane, Gail, Barb, and Susan got their games together and broke 100 for the first, and hopefully not last, time!
Ann H aced the 17th hole and hopefully has since joined the Hole in One Club.
Some other notable “bests”.....
Laurie had her best game, finishing in the rain. With nowhere to congregate, she headed home and proceeded to give the dog the hole by hole story. She thinks he even rolled his eyes, but was smart enough to know who feeds him!
Bridget scored a 51 on the front on her way to her best game!
Sandy Y had her best game on a Saturday, capturing 3 skins!
Dale’s best score beat her previous one by 4 shots! Wow!
Laura E had her best game with no max scores, no penalty strokes, no water, and only 1 bunker. Her comment...”Maybe it is not such a stupid game after all.”
So ladies, please keep these happy stories coming......we all like to hear what our fellow golfers are doing, especially as we are missing our times as a group.
Email your tales to firstname.lastname@example.org or catch Barb around the club.
Enjoy the rest of the summer and may your bogeys be more plentiful than the higher scores!
Anne and Barb
