Highlights from Anaheim Hills ...  

HOT, HOT, HOT describes the day at Anaheim Hills – 100 degrees!!  The heat got the best of us, and some of us felt like we were on a desert with no water.  On-course customer service was nil – no water jugs, no beverage cart on the front nine and it was seen once on the back nine.  I was told by the beverage cart girl that she was not allowed to “sell” on the front nine because it is reserved by the snack bar and grill.  Oh, yeh, the GM at Anaheim Hills and I have already communicated, and he was not very happy with my report.   He will speak to the ambassador who was riding around, mostly on the cart paths, with a water jug and never got close to any of the groups.  That is his prime duty, to ask each group if they needed water, according to the GM.  The beverage cart and snack bar are managed by another company, and he will be discussing the situation with them.  There should be exceptions to the rules on a blistering hot day like what we experienced.  . . .  Of course, the next day the temperature went down 21 degrees to a beautiful, breezy 79 degrees  . . . El Nino is right around the corner, so be prepared for rainy tournament days . . . One group was a couple or so holes behind, totally unacceptable!!  First group finished at 2:00, last group came in just before 4:00.  With only six groups, this is unbelievable and embarrassing . . . Thank you, Jean and Wayne for a great job with the scoring and also for waiting patiently for everyone to finish their round.

Rainbow Golf Vacation to the Big Island . . .

Hurricanes Ignacio and Jimenez veered off from Hawaii, thank goodness!!  We were able to play our five rounds of golf without rain.  It was hot and humid with rain every afternoon for a couple of hours.  Courses have such great drainage, fairways and greens were never muddy.
The courses we played were Hapuna, Mauna Lani North and South, Mauna Kea, and Makalei.  Unlike our local courses, we played on plush fairways, no bare areas or hardpan, greens were great but slow, views were spectacular, especially those near or on the ocean.  Pro shops made a lot of money from us.  Our last day was at Makalei, located near the mountains where it was cooler and had more rain, hence there was evidence of flooding on some of the holes.  Beautiful peacocks everywhere, even in the parking lot.
We had a great group of travelers – 27 golfers, 11 nongolfing family members.  Some of us did things together, some did things on their own.  We got together for dinner a couple of times.  One of the dinners was held at Cynthia Maeda’s parents’ home.  Fabulous dinner and desserts, mostly prepared by Cynthia’s parents, Mr. & Mrs. Nimori, and expenses were shared with Rainbow Golf.   Our sincere thanks to the Nimoris for showing us the true Hawaiian hospitality.   Not only did they host our dinner, but on a separate day, they took us to their grandparents’ farm where we picked coffee, witnessed how the coffee bean is separated from the shell, saw where the coffee pickers lived.  As a country girl from Hawaii, I was very interested in the various fruits – cherries, guavas, Chinese orange, Star fruit – brought back a lot of wonderful childhood memories.  The Nimoris and Maedas also took us to various “made in Kona” stores – slippers, cookies, beef jerky, hats, towels, pot holders, etc. 
Our deepest appreciation to the Maedas and Nimoris for a great Hawaiian vacation.  Your hospitality, knowledge and expertise of Hawaiiana were the highlights of our trip.  From all the Hawaii travelers, THANK YOU SO MUCH! 
A personal THANK YOU from me to Bruce and Cynthia for meeting us at the Kona Airport and for always being there to help us (our van) with our luggage.  KONA NO KA OI – MAHALO!



No-shows, last-minute cancellations . . .

Upon joining Rainbow, everyone is given a New Member Info sheet which includes our club policies.  One of the policies is . . .
If you cancel less than two weeks of a scheduled tournament, your money will not be refunded, unless; 1) there is someone on the waiting list; 2) YOU find someone to take your place. Whatever arrangements you make with that person will be your responsibility.

SPECIAL NOTE: Remember if you signed up to play and/or have a deposit on a tournament but did not inform us that you've changed your mind, you are assumed to be playing. Unless you advise us that you will not be able to play, you are still responsible for payment, because RainbowGolf must send the course our fees based on the final number of players who have signed up.

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!!
