"News From the Board"

 New Website
Check out our new website at www.sfcc.golf
It looks great!

Monthly ACH Draft
We have had several members sign up on the monthly ACH draft with a credit card or checking account. If this is something you would like and you didn't get signed up on monthly ACH draft for your dues payment for 1st  & 2nd quarter 2016, you can switch to that the end of June so that your 3rd quarter dues will be monthly.  We will need the completed ACH form signed and turned in if you want this payment method.

GHIN
Members who wish to participate in the GHIN handicap system should pay $20, cash or check at the bar by July 10, 2016. Anyone not paid by then will be made inactive.  Whether you are an existing GHIN member or a new enrollee, please get a receipt when you pay and be sure the receipt has your name and telephone number, tell the bar attendee it is for GHIN so they can keep it separate.  Please follow these simple steps so we can enroll you promptly and accurately.
If you are a new enrollee, we will notify you of your GHIN number so you may immediately begin to post your scores, which may be done on your home computer or by phone.  GHIN handicap is an excellent way to know if your game is improving (or not)!

Student Membership
Remember we have Student Memberships available for $100/year.

Dress Code
St. Francois Country Club does not have a written dress code for golfers as is found at many golf clubs.  We do however request that our members respect the game and dress accordingly.  No tank tops, muscle shirts or bear midriffs please.  In other words, dress like a golfer.

Marshalls & Guest Rules
 Marshalls begin work on April 1st.  Please remember to sign in with them before you begin your round.  The Board would like to remind our members that when you bring a Guest to our Club to play golf, the following rules be followed:
1. Pay green fees prior to play--$30/18 hole, $15/9 holes, $10 cart rental.  These fees need to be paid prior to starting your round.
2. Include guest name and address when signing them in.
3. In county guest can only pay green fees and play three (3) times in a year.
4. Guest must be accompanied by a member when on the course.

Rental Carts
We have a new fleet of Club Carts for rent.  These are new carts and we hope to keep them in the new condition as long as possible.  Please take care to not damage a cart as you will be held responsible for any damages.  Rent paid for a cart is started for 9 or 18 holes only.  In other words, a cart is not rented for the day.

Junior League
Junior Golf League is every Friday @ 6:00 pm.  We will meet at the driving range. The kids will then split up into teams with parents driving carts and play on the front 9 holes.  Thanks members for allowing our kids to use the front 9 on Friday nights.  Volunteers willing to help with this program are greatly appreciated!  Any questions, call Claudia VarVera @ 631-6574.

Food and Beverage
All food and drinks MUST be purchased in the clubhouse while you are on the course or at the pool.  Please assist us in this matter and use the clubhouse restaurant for your food and beverage needs.

Repair the Greens
 Please repair your ball mark on the green, as well as any you see that might not be your own.  Do all you can to help us keep our greens in good repair.

Cart Sheds
We have several private cart sheds available.  Please contact Jamie Brune @760-5825 or jeheisel@hotmail.com if you are interested in a shed.

"News From the Clubhouse"
2016 Pool Season
  Please remember that all members must sign in with the lifeguard on duty, and if you bring a guest it is $3.00 per person.  A guest is anyone not in the member's immediate household.
Pool hours are from 11:00 am- 7:00 pm on weekdays, closed on Mondays except holidays.  Sunday hours are from 11:00 am- 6:00 pm.  All members must leave at 6:00 on Sunday evenings, but if the club is open during the week, with Linda's permission, members may swim without a lifeguard as long as the clubhouse is open.  Members are not to bring in any food or drink besides what is purchased from the clubhouse.  Members are not to bring large floating devices.
We are looking forward to a great summer!!!

Pool Parties
Book your pool party for this summer.  Private parties fro the pool will be on Tuesdays from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm or on Saturdays from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm.  Pool parties may also be booked after the pool closes at 7:00 during the week or 6:00 on Sunday.  We have had complaints from members about private parties being booked during swimming hours.  By setting aside these two days, we hope to eliminate some of the conflict.

When using restaurant minimums, please be sure to use only your minimum.  Please do not ask to use another members monthly minimum.
