Golf Pro: August 2019

Hard to believe it is August already, which is our last very busy month of the year. Ladies Visitation is on Aug. 7, 8:30 a.m. shotgun. The Mirror Pond Invitational is Aug. 10–11 and it is looking like tee times in the morning although entries are still coming in as I write this letter. The Mirror Pond is $250 to enter but just $175 for BGC members. Go to the Events page to sign up.

  • The Junior Club Championship is Aug. 13 with tee times in the afternoon and we will have 18, 9, 6, and 3-hole champions for both boys and girls. Please call the golf shop to sign up your juniors.
  • The Ladies’ Member-Member will be held on Aug. 14 and 21. The final Friday Night Twosomes will be held Aug. 16 so make sure you make the last couple events to increase your chances for the end-of-season payout.
  • The Men’s and Ladies’ Club Championship will be held the third week of the month. The men will play Aug. 22, 24 and 25 while the ladies will play Aug. 24–25. You can sign up for the Club Championship under the Event tab on the Foretees reservation page.

We need your help addressing dress code violations. The main issue for men is untucked shirts. For women it’s typically the length of shorts and for juniors it’s tee shirts and athletic shorts. Remember, the dress code applies for both the course and the practice facilities. The dress code policy is described in the Member Handbook and applies to juniors also.

Dress Code Policy

Men: Shirts must have collars and sleeves and be tucked in at all times unless banded. Mocks are acceptable. Tailored golf shorts are acceptable with mid-thigh
length or longer; no tennis length or short shorts. Neat denim and sweatshirts/sweaters in good taste are acceptable. T-shirts and athletic wear are
not acceptable.
Women: Sleeveless shirts must have a collar: halter/tank tops are not permitted.
Tailored golf shorts/skirts are acceptable with mid-thigh length or longer: no tennis length or short shorts. Neat denim and sweatshirts/sweaters that are in
good taste are acceptable. T-shirts and athletic wear are not acceptable.

Looking forward to a great month. Please do not hesitate to call the golf shop if you have any questions. Hope to see you soon.

    If we have a policy let’s enforce it. I will support you.
