SPARTAN INVITATIONAL -March 10th @ Whitehawk

Our Invitational will go as planned march 10th as the new owners will have their upgrades done in time to honor our tournament date.

This is a Maxwell format event where all of our players play together in 5 player teams. There is a JV division and a Varsity bracket. We have 2 JV teams in each tournament.  START TIME 8:00AM

ALL PLAYERS SHOULD ARRIVE AT 7:00 TO WARM UP ON THE RANGE.

Parents desiring to rent a cart, may want to reserve on in advance.

Parents are encouraged to attend but MUST adhere to OSSAA rules on  spectator involvement. Coaches are expected to enforce the rules related to penalties & disqualification. Coach Morrow follows the rules to the letter. Please don’t attempt to influence your Spartan’s play in any way.

 

 

MODIFIED PRACTICE PLAN – STARTING 2/21

Due to Whitehawk closing for renovations we will have a modified practice plan for 2 to 3 weeks.  We will resume using the course once they reopen and for this year at least, the new owners advise they will continue to honor our financial agreement made with American Golf.

I anticipate an increase in course use fees for 2018-19 but at this point it seems the new management intends returning the course to the outstanding golf course it once was.

========================================================================

JUNIOR HIGH PLAYERS WILL USE LIT’L  LINKS FOR OUR REGULAR PRACTICE COURSE. Players that belong to a private course may use their home course when ever they’d like. We must balance the playing groups to prevent the course from being overflowed with Spartan Golfers. Coaches Moore & Masters will alternate supervising these practices. Players are expected to attend. If you cannot get a ride to the course (or work out a carpool) advise the coaches each day.

Coach Moore Cell  918- 237-6489           Coach Master Cell 918-855-0030

If your already established carpool situation requires a change in groups, advise me ASAP

BIG EVENT NEXT SATURDAY – 24th

LAST YEAR THE GOLF TEAM HAD A GREAT TURN-OUT TO HELP WITH THE BIG EVENT. WE NEED TO AGAIN THIS YEAR. It is a fun time and not hard work. Our task is to meet at the high school at 8:30 to check in and get trash bags, then we will go to Washington Irving park and pick up trash. We also pick up trash from there to the North Campus, along the jogging trail. We are done by noon and then come back to the high school for lunch provided by the event organizers.

LET’S HAVE ANOTHER GREAT TURN-OUT!  Go to the website below and register so we can get your tee shirt.  Your parent can register you if you can;t do it during between classes or at lunch.  MUST DO IT TODAY!

a pull -over is also good for pics. Most of us have a Blue one, I believe.
Plan to discuss the schedule for the season. I have it mapped out for all tournaments and practices but we need to review and tweak it as you find snags…..

SPRING FEES DUE NOW

We still have 17 players who have not paid  SPRING FEES.  I need those check on deposit ASAP in order to commit PO’s to the H.S. JV and ‘ Junior High B team events.  This money also pays for food after tournaments as well as our spring golf course fees.

IF YOU HAD A HOLE SPONSOR IN OUR FALL SCRAMBLE, LET ME KNOW WHO IT WAS.  You do not owe fees if so.  (Sometimes a Hole sponsor is credited to the wrong player and I need to correct that in my files)

If you cannot pay your Spartan’s fees at this time, let me know what you need to do. I want everyone participating but we schedule enough events for all 70+ golfers to have course use privileges &  play tournaments but can only do so if we raise the additional funds.
