FROM THE SHORT GRASS FOR THE MIDDLE OF OCTOBER
RESULTS FROM THE CELEBRATIONOctober 13, 2018 

Our Final Event for the 2018 Golf Season was held this past Monday at Dayton CC under dry skies and warm conditions.

The Celebration brings all our different groups together to celebrate our 2018 golf season, to recognize those who have distinguished themselves through their play and/or service and lastly, to capture and remember the spirit of Dr. Philip Hughes who was the second President of Miami Valley Golf. 

The Team of Vic Haddad, Dan Sutherly, John Sherman and Mike Hartsock won the days play in the variable net best ball event.  Congrats to all who played and thanks to Dayton CC for hosting!

In the weeks and months ahead we will offer many education seminars, provide our member clubs with all the material available to distribute to you their/our members and patrons and introduce a new rule each week through this weekly email.

In the meantime if you would like a copy of the players edition of the new rules of golf please provide your information through this link and we will be happy to mail to you a complementary copy.  

For those of you with smart devices you can also download at no cost, the 2019 Rules of Golf App at either your iTunes or Play store.
rules change - dropping ball from knee height
In 2019, instead of dropping the ball from shoulder height, you drop the ball from knee height.  Don't worry, if you drop it any other way, just pick the ball up and drop it the correct way.
