Pine Mountain Lake Mens Golf Club News
After a stormy start, the Men’s Club has now completed the entire schedule of tournaments for 2018. A string of storms in February and March forced us to reschedule the annual Ice Breaker tournament, and it was finally completed in late October as the Ice Maker. Congratulations to all of the players who competed in tournaments in 2018, and especially to all of our winners. We saw increasing participation this year, which bodes well for the future of our club.
Looking Forward To 2019
The Men’s Club board has planned several exciting enhancements for 2019. The 2019 tournament schedule is now posted on the website, with a full slate of events planned for the year. In addition to the annual events that everyone looks forward to each year, we have added a couple of new events next year. The St. Patrick’s Day Invitational has been added in March, and the Halloween Shootout will be played in October. Please take a look at the entire tournament schedule on the website, and begin to plan your participation in next year’s tournaments.

Several rules changes are being implemented by the USGA in 2019 to make golf simpler and more enjoyable for the average golfer. Mike Cook and Frank Jablonski are planning to host a rules seminar on December 20th from 4:00 – 7:00pm at the Lake Lodge to review the rules changes and answer all questions from our members. Mark your calendars for this important event.
Looking Forward to 2019
As you can see, we have some exciting changes planned for 2019. Since the Men’s Club is in a strong position, we are planning to continue offering free hors d’oeuvres after select tournaments in 2019. This gives tournament participants an additional opportunity to brag about their accomplishments to anyone who will listen.
