A Heart Felt Thanks to the Members of LGRC

 

 

I would like to take this opportunity on behalf of myself and my staff, to thank all those who contributed to the Lockport Golf Club employee Christmas Fund. All the employees appreciate your thoughtfulness and generosity at the Holidays and throughout the year. I would also like to offer a big thank you to those who, without their help, various projects would not have been completed. Another thank you goes out to the Board of Directors for all the long hours of work they put in as volunteers to make the Lockport Golf Club continue to function and improve. I know many of their efforts often go unnoticed and/or under appreciated.

      And last but certainly not least, thank you to all the members of the Lockport Golf Club for supporting our great little course by bringing out friends and family to enjoy the outdoors, the people and the wonderful game of golf. The staff and I may get frustrated at time when the course is crowded and it seems like we can’t get anything done, but we really would rather see all of you instead of an empty course! The dues notices just went out this week, so spring can’t be far away!!

 

Sincerely,

 

Scott Pieper

Superintendent/GM

Lockport Golf Club

CDGA Handicaps and Equitable Stroke Control

Many of you know what Equitable Stroke Control or ESC is, but it is questions asked very often. ESC is the downward adjustment of individual hole scores for handicap purposes in order to make handicaps more representative of a player's potential scoring ability. ESC sets a maximum number that a player can post on any hole depending on the player's Course Handicap. It is used only when a player's actual or most likely score exceeds his maximum number based on the table below. There is no limit to the number of holes on which a player may adjust his or her score. Basically, we all occasionally have those holes where we seem to forget how to play this game, and ESC brings that score back to reality without allowing it to affect our handicap more than it should. The tables below show exactly how it works:

Course Handicap ESC Maximum

9 or less                 Double Bogey

10-19                      7

20-29                     8

30-39                     9

40 and above        10

Golf Tip

by Brett Thomas


 

Drill for a Stable Base
 
To practice feeling centered during the golf swing.  Take your normal stance and wedge a golf ball under the outside of each foot causing your feet to pitch inward.  Your lower body will stay in place as your upper body rotates back and through without much lateral movement.
Staying centered is crucial key for good contact and consistency.
I like to think I am swinging in a phone booth. It is the only way I can draw the ball.

 

Good luck !!
See you on the course!
