"If I could have breakfast with that view every day, I would! The food is as good as the view - EXCELLENT! Thanks!" A. Rouse, Director of San Ramon, CA
We did manage to have a “White Christmas” for a few hours anyway. It snowed Christmas morning, but the snow melted by mid-afternoon and a few people came out to hit range balls with their new golf clubs. It was reported to us that we had more than 17 inches of rain in December and lots of “frost”. Our regular skins game guys have not let the cold weather dampen their enthusiasm. We had 16 players on the 27th and they all survived the elements. Some of the big winners were Randy Burrows, Dave Turk, Scott Waite, and Chad Trevisan.
Remember the best of 2014 and recall what swing thought you were using when you played your best round ever. We say, “Happy New Year” and resolve to do better in everything. We reflect and recap every swing we make and every mistake we encounter. We relive, revue, replay, rethink, and recount all our achievements and misfortunes. We want to rebuild and refine our golf swing and our life. We will rebound, repair, repave, restore, redirect, refresh, and try to recapture our best efforts. And we will rejoice when we can reclaim, and revitalize our game. The next few months could be important in reciprocating and reverberating our resolutions. Remind yourself that it is never too late to get your short game in order. Now is the time to dedicate a few minutes each day to improve that part of your game that needs it most. Respond and renew your passion for this wonderful game of golf and you will enjoy it more than ever.

Sip and Shop
Bill Navarre was among many of our members who could not pass up the big
inventory clearance sale we had in our golf shop on Friday, December 19th.
Bill saved 40% on all the golf shirts he selected and had a few appetizers with wine as well.
Several of our members also enjoyed playing golf on our Opti Shot simulator. Frank Laiacona shot even par on the practice range and never lost a ball or a club. He has been known to lose balls and clubs on the “island hole”. He will be traveling to China in the near future to teach “speed golf” and acting. Frank is also an excellent writer of self help books in a variety of topics. He has also become quite a motivational speaker.
