I am inviting you to join me and 11 other FBMGA members to participate in an upcoming fundraising effort for the Fernandina Beach High School Golf Teams. This will be our fourth year and we will raise $1,920 for the two golf teams. I think 14 golf bags were purchased last year.
It is a fun event with 12 members from each of Amelia River Golf Club, The Golf Club of Amelia Island (Ritz), The Amelia Island Golf Club (Long Point) and our own FBMGA. (48 players). What's fun is, there is a competition, but among your foursome you end up pulling for them as you want them to play good even though they are the competition in some way, But it is a Fundraiser, so all is GOOD!
It is a 12 team (Best 10 Net scores competition) and we play with members from the other clubs. This year we will be at the Golf Club of Amelia Island (Ritz). The attached flyer gives you all the information you need to know.
NEW...NEW...I told the committee that there needed to be tee adjustments for ages and the committee agreed, so:
70 and older will play the White Tees at 5,341 yards
60 and older will play the Black Tees at 5,767 yards
Less than 60 will play the Blue Tees at 6,156 yards
The goal is to raise $1,920 for the FB Golf Teams. Your entry fee is $125. I hope we can get the 12 Team Members we need. Please consider joining in.
If you would like to join me on Monday, October 18 for the 12 Noon Shotgun with hor's d'ouevres afterward, please get me a check for $125 made payable to Lee Murray ASAP. The first 11 golfers to join in will be in on the team, and anyone else will be alternates.
You can always put your entry fee in the FBMGA Lock Box, BUT please make sure you identify what the cash/check is for and communicate with me.
The attached flyer gives all the details about the event which is coordinated by Buddy Boyd of Amelia River, Rich Myslinski of The GCAI, Dennis Schroeder of the AIC and myself. They are good guys to work with!
If you have any questions, please contact me. Many thanks.

Most notably, there are 10 fewer rules: 24 versus 34. And, for the most part, they are more understandable and more accommodating to the realities of today’s game.
Regarding the “stroke and distance” penalty for hitting a ball out of bounds: the new rules will provide for a local rule “to allow golfers the option to drop the ball in the vicinity of where the ball is lost or out of bounds (including the nearest fairway area), under a two-stroke penalty.” The change is intended to support pace of play and is not for higher levels such as professionals and elite amateurs.
Accidentally moving your ball on the putting green won’t cost you a stroke
No additional penalty for hitting a ball in motion. The “double hit”.
No penalty if your ball in motion accidentally hits you or your equipment.
Embedded-ball relief anywhere except in a bunker.
No penalty for hitting an unattended flagstick if you are putting while on the green. This may or may not be to your advantage.
You can repair “spike marks, and other damage made by shoes, animal damage and other damage on the putting green.” There is no penalty for touching the line of putt.
There also are more generous applications regarding relief from hazards and other penalty areas. Under the new rules, a player will be able to move loose impediments in a bunker and touch the sand with club or hand. It goes without saying, it is hoped, that this is not for players to improve their lie therein.
In relief situations, you can drop from the knee, not shoulder, level.
The time searching for a lost ball is down to three minutes from five.
The 600-page Decisions on the Rules of Golf doorstop is gone. It will be replaced by three volumes: Player’s Edition of the Rules of Golf, the Rules of Golf and the Official Guide to the Rules of Golf. There will be more than 30 “how to apply” videos and a summary of the principal changes available at www.usga.org/rules and www.RandA.org or try this: https://sports.yahoo.com/nine-changes-rules-golf-absolutely-192449723.html
