Message from the President

  • In the next few weeks, we will be saying goodbye to three of our members who will be moving from Bella Vista. Mary Ellen Schultz, Rosemary Gallea and Bobbie Morgan will be on their way to life's next adventures. Please take a moment and wish them well. They will be missed.

Wow! 7:00 is sure early, especially those who live way on the west side. We appreciate everyone getting up at dawn-thirty to come to play at Dogwood. We will be going off the front and back nine. There are 2 tee times before us on the front. These folks graciously moved up their time so we could play early. There is a small chance they may catch some of the players on the back. Please let them play through - it will only take a few minutes.

The game is Fields and Greens. It is an individual game with a team score. We are playing in 2 flights and will pay out 4 positions in both flights. Count the lowest score to reach the green, plus the lowest number of putts. The team score is the total of these two numbers.

With the change in rules to leave the flag in while putting, sometimes the edge of the hole gets damaged when the ball is retrieved. To help keep the hole 'crisp', reach in with your knuckles to the flag and gently retrieve your ball. It's ok to leave the ball in the hole until after another player putts. If you use a retriever, be very careful about scraping the edge of the hole.

Remember to turn in your Member Guest Registration. The home page has links to the invitation and a chart to 'Fill Your Foursome". We want everyone who want to to play! It is a FUN DAY!

1. When playing a team scramble, all players may choose to hit from gold or red tees -Sorry for any confusion on May 13.

2. A Whiff is when you swing the club with the intention of hitting the ball and you miss the ball. A Whiff is all about intention.
