Hello fellow golfers
Welcome to the 2022 IESGA season. I hope you are as eager as I am for this season to start. We have an exciting schedule this year beginning with our first tournament at the Bryden Canyon GC on April 25th, followed by Quail Ridge on the 26th, and we have the opportunity to play Circling Raven on May 4. Our club championship will be played at the Coeur d’Alene Golf Club and Deer Park. We end the season at the U of I Golf Course on October 4th, followed by Palouse Ridge on the 5th.
My focus for this season is 1. HAVE FUN 2. Maintain the pace of play 3. Increase membership. To that end, we will be hosting a booth at the Spokane Golf Show Saturday, February 19, and Sunday, February 20. We had 304 members at the end of 2021, and I am confident that we can increase that number in 2022. As always, we stress the importance of keeping up the pace of play. I encourage all of you to read the “Tournament Chairman’s Message” by John Hanke.
I would like to recognize the efforts of Randy Allen and your board of directors in guiding us through a very successful 2021 season. I would also like to thank John Hanke, our tournament chairman. He puts in a lot of effort to make sure that our tournaments run smoothly. Thanks also to Doug Kearsley, tournament vice-chair and web master. Doug makes sure that our web site is up to date with all the relevant information that we need. Please continue to utilize the web site throughout the season.
Here’s wishing you fun and success in the coming season, with emphasis on fun. By the way, don’t forget the Old Goat competition. It’s our version of the Schwab Cup, the more you play the more you win. You won’t make quite as much as the Schwab Cup, but it’s a lot of fun.
Your 2022 IESGA president,
