After a delayed shotgun start, every- one enjoyed a step aside scramble and the brunch that followed at the Country Club restaurant. Thanks to Laurie Law-

Ritz Carlton Members Golf Club.

Thirteen members took advantage of an unexpected opportunity provided by John Girlus to play the beautiful Ritz Carlton course at a very reasonable green fee on Friday, July 17th. Unfortunately, the Florida rainy season is here in full force so we had to abandon play be- cause of rain and lightning before finishing the front 9. We retired to the 19th hole for a nice lunch in the Club House. The Club provide us with 9 hole rain checks so 9 of us decided to try again on the following Friday. The group almost finished the round but again we had to vacate the course because of heavy rain. All of us enjoyed the course and appreciated the opportunity to play there. Thank You, John Girlus!

19th Hole at the Ritz Carlton Clubhouse

CTP Winner-Fred Weinberg We heard that Fred scored a hole-in-one a few days later on a 170 yard hole at the Glen Lakes Country Club. That is the ulti- mate CTP! That was Fred's fourth ace.

Congratulations Fred!

Ready to Tee Off at the Ritz!

Golf can be a dangerous sport. Accidents can occur by you or another party striking a golf ball, by a golf cart turning over, or simply falling down steps.

PLEASE TAKE ADEQUATE PRECAUTION when playing in ASGA events. Chapters and individuals running golf tournaments are not professionals but are volun- teers, and therefore, you must assume additional responsibility for your own safety. Please abide by the safety rules posted inside your golf cart, at the golf course, as well as the official website of the United States Golf Association (www.USGA.org). If you have a safety concern, please bring it to the attention of the person(s) running an event, your chapter president or golf course management personnel.
