President’s Message Sep 2020


We had a decent turnout for the non-tournament in August. Those who participated had a good time, and with the patio open, we even had a place to enjoy a beer and discuss the round. It was almost like the old days - pre coronavirus.

It’s unfortunate that we aren’t allowed to hold real tournaments, we would likely have had another 8-10 players out. But we don’t want to do anything to jeopardize the golf course operation. So until there’s a change in the policies American Golf and LA County are enforcing, we’ll be staying with the current format of a monthly golf outing without the formality of a tournament. For September, you will be able to sign up on the website. Hope to see you all out for a fun day.

Further, as a result of the current situation, several players and teams are having a lot of trouble continuing the Presidents Cup and Partners Cup tournaments. We don’t want anyone to get the idea that we’re holding a tournament, and it’s not fair to the ones that are being careful and need to be careful during this time. So the Board has voted to cancel all major tournaments for this year, including the Club Championship and the Presidents and Partners Cup tournaments.

We hope that things will get better in a couple of months and we can get back to the normal routine of our tournaments and the camaraderie after. We are also looking into one or more away tournaments outside LA County where we can actually have a tournament. Ventura County seems more friendly to golfers right now. I hope you all understand and support us.
