Dear Golfers,

Chuc Mung Nam Moi!

We are galloping off to a great start to 2014, The Year of the Horse! The weather is beautiful and the golf course is in excellent playing condition. We are seeing more and more players from all over the world coming to experience Danang Golf Club and the feedback has all been positive. With the popularity of the golf course we understand that it can be a bit of an inconvenience for our regular players to get last minute tee times. We are doing everything we can to see to it that everyone can get on the course at their desired time by reserving premium tee times for our members as well as encouraging others to book in advance. We thank you for planning ahead to assist us in managing the golf course for your pleasure!

This month we had two hole-in-one’s on the same day on the same hole!! On Sunday, February 2nd, Mr. Paul Hellyer and Mr. Vu Anh Tuan both holed their tee shots on our Par-3 signature Hole #16! Both players will receive 01 return business class ticket to any destination in Asia sponsored by Vietnam Airlines. Congratulations gentlemen!

Next month on the weekend of March 8th and 9th, The SieMatic Pairs Tournament hosted by The Alfrescos Group, will be held again for the second year here in Danang. This is a pairs team event that is played at Montgomerie Links on Saturday and here at Danang Golf Club for the final round on Sunday. Last year’s event was great fun with excellent food and beverage and prizes. There are special entry fees for members and the flyer with all the tournament information can be found here.

It is now the time of year when we start looking toward our Club Championship. This year the tournament will be held over the weekend of the 29th and 30th of March. We will do shotgun starts on Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning so that we can have a proper two-day Championship and make it possible for those who live out of town to fly in Saturday morning and back out on Sunday if necessary. We hope that those of you who have the time, however, will come a few days early for some practice rounds,or stay on some extra days after the tournament. The Ocean Villas will offer some very special rates for the tournament participants and their families. We will also offer additional special greens fee rate packages to those of you who want to play extra rounds of golf before and/or after the tournament weekend! Sign up early for the event and special offers as there is limited space and we want to see you here! Please see the tournament section in the newsletter for details.

Sincerely,
JOE MILLAR

From the superintendent

Dear Golfers,

Happy TET to you and your family.

Finally the weather has changed, with temperatures slowly rising. This will help with turf recovery from the wear that it has taken from the high volume of play over the last few months.

Grooming of the greens has commenced and will continue throughout the next 6-8 months. This maintenance practice is done very lightly and the results have been excellent.There is no disruption to play or the putting surfaces.

Selected tees are being "patched" with new turf. This is being done only in small areas on the blue teesbecause they are the most popular to play.

Native weeding of rough areas is almost complete. The exposed sand will be maintained with herbicide to remove any exposed weeds, without damaging any native grasses/plants that may germinate.

Good golfing.

Thank You,

Dan Brown
Golf Course Superintendent.

RULE OF THE MONTH
Lost Ball

Definition: A ball is deemed lost if it is not found within 5 minutes from the time that the players and caddies begin to search for the ball.

Rule 20-5: If a ball is lost, the player must play a ball, under penalty of one stroke, as near as possible at the spot where the last stroke was played. The ball must be dropped. If the original stroke was played from the teeing ground, it may be played anywhere within the teeing ground and may be teed.

So that means if a player loses a ball, he counts the stroke he made with the original ball, plus one penalty stroke and the distance back to the original position, and he is then hitting his 3rd shot.

In order to keep pace of play moving, players who think they may have lost their ball “OUTSIDE A HAZARD”, should play a provisional ball. The player must announce that they are playing a provisional ball before hitting the shot.

The reason I have capitalized “OUTSIDE A HAZARD” is because a ball that goes into a hazard and may be lost in the hazard, has better options than a ball that is lost outside the hazard. If the ball is lost inside a hazard, the player may play a ball within 2 club lengths of where the ball last crossed the hazard or as far back as he wishes from that point in line with the flagstick.

Know the rules so you can use them to your advantage! If you have any questions about the Rules of Golf, please call me anytime.

Good Luck and Good Golf!
Thanks,
Joe Millar, PGA
