Highlights from Glen Ivy ...
Glen Ivy (Trilogy) was the most talked about course when it first opened.  It’s been at least 10 years since Rainbow has had a tournament here.  Wow, putting was a bit slick, lots of three putts!   A couple of the beautiful ponds and the waterfalls were waterless due to water restrictions and repair work.  The vistas cannot be beat especially from the 18th tee, spectacular!!   The course is quite challenging, and conditions were fine.  Aerification was scheduled at noon that day, but that did not affect us as we were long gone before they started on hole #1.    Great round for Mark Miller, must be those new clubs he got recently . . .   Thank you, Jean and Pete, for a great job with the scorekeeping.

Update on Al Takaki . . .

Just letting you know that Al is in great spirits in spite of what he has gone through -- a series of chemo treatments, infections, many doctor visits, and now is awaiting another bone marrow transplant procedure which will take place in the next week or so.  He wishes he could be out there golfing with us. 
So, whenever you have a bad golf day, temper tantrums, hate a golf course, not happy with your Rainbow tournament pairings, or feeling sorry for yourself, just think of Al.  He would love to trade places with you. 
Al, we are all praying for your complete recovery !!

New Rainbow rule . . .

After the tournament at Rancho Park, comments were made about the sand traps not being raked and golf balls were landing in big, deep shoe prints.  Trying to get the ball out of them, especially with soft sand, was brutal.  It was suggested that we introduce a new rule for Rainbow tournaments ONLY .  . . . . If your golf ball lands in a shoe print in the sand trap, you may take it out and place it outside of the shoe print, no closer to the hole, no penalty.  Remember, do not use this rule when playing with other tournaments.  

Motto for Rainbow Golf . . .
I recently saw a poster that had the following saying which I have adopted for our group . . .
You have three choices – 1)  Give in; 2) Give up; 3) Give it all you got!!
