No Greens Aeration
September and October can be the best months of the year to play golf, so why screw it up with holes in the greens? Obviously punching the greens is a very important maintenance practice, but we like to wait until the busiest part of the season is over before we face that inconvenience.  We will not be aerating greens before October 26 at the earliest.

Starting on September 8 Twilight Rates Start at 2 PM 
In other news, our Twilight Rate will start at 2 PM and Super Twilight will start at 4 PM.  This correlates with the cart return time being earlier as well. Days are getting shorter – it feels like fall is in the air, so get your golf in now!

No Leaves!
Another bonus of playing fall golf at Southers Marsh is that we have very few deciduous trees, so you can spend more time playing golf and less time searching for your ball in a pile of leaves.

Thank you to everyone for your understanding as we try to make the best out of a difficult situation.

Updated August 31
As we continue to feel our way along with our latest venture, here are some updates.  Our prices have been adjusted so bay reservations and bucket rentals are now in line.

Current Hours – 11:15 AM to 7:30 PM – Toptracer does not work in the dark. Lights will be installed within a week which will allow us to stay open later.

Pricing Changes – Bay Reservations
Reserved in 2 hour blocks, including sales tax
Each bay accommodates up to 4 players and includes range balls
Monday-Friday Before 3:00 PM – $25 per hour
All Other Times – $40 per hour
If you start your reservation at 2, you’ll pay $25 for the first hour and $40 for the second hour

Pricing Changes – Walk-in Buckets
We will still have 2 bays reserved for walk-in buckets. If you want to hit a bucket in the barn, please do not reserve a bay for 2 hours. Buckets are for walk-ins only. Our hours are now 11:15 AM to 7:30 PM. The last bucket will be sold at 7:00.
Pricing (including sales tax)
Monday-Friday Before 2:30 PM – Full Bucket – $12, Half Bucket – $6
All Other Times – Full Bucket – $20, Half Bucket – $10

Change to ReservationsUpdated August 19
Due to the demand we’re experiencing, we’re now accepting reservations for 8 bays instead of just 4. Additionally, bays will be reserved in blocks of 2 hours instead of just one. Our experience in the first few weeks has been that one hour is not enough to fully enjoy the Toptracer experience, so now we are booking 2 hours blocks so we don’t have to kick people out before they are ready to leave.

Thank you for your support!

Walter Hartley won on the first hole of a playoff against Dennis Mello to win the 2020 Southers Marsh Club Championship.  We had a record 30 players for the event, which was awesome to see.  Thank you so much to everyone who played!

Recap

First Round Leaders
1. Bill Bacchiochhi – 66
2. George Costa – 67
3. Tom Audette – 71
4. Jay Rowles – 72
5.(t) Steve Buffington – 73
5.(t) Dave LaRose – 73
5.(t) Dennis Mello – 73
8.(t) Walter Hartley – 74
8.(t) Reed Bacchiocchi – 74

The front nine was a struggle yesterday.  In the last 2 groups no one made a birdie on the front, but there was trouble left and right.  George Costa started his weekend by breaking his eight iron practicing Friday afternoon and then started with a triple bogey on 1.  Tom Audette got his triple out of the way on 4, and then Bill Bacchiocchi 5 putted on 6 after missing a 3″ tap in for par.  The only one who even thought about making a move was Steve Buffington who birdied 2 and 4 before making a string of bogies.  The highlight of the front nine was a hole-in-one by Dave LaRose on 7.  Quietly, defending champ Reed Bacchiocchi, Dennis Mello, and Walter Hartley all had decent front nines to pull into the lead pack after being 7 and 8 strokes back.  Paul Rodrigues shot 34 to pull within one stroke, and Steve Hart had the low front nine score of 33 to get onto the first page of the leaderboard.  

27 Hole Leaders
1.(t) George Costa – 67-42=109
1.(t) Reed Bacchiocchi – 74-35=109
1.(t) Dennis Mello – 73-36=109
4.(t) Bill Bacchiocchi – 66-44=110
4.(t) Walter Hartley – 74-36=110
4.(t) Paul Rodrigues – 76-34=110
7.(t) Jay Rowles – 72-39=111
7.(t) Nick Baker – 77-34=111
9.(t) Steve Buffington – 73-39-112
9.(t) Steve Hart – 79-33-112
9.(t) Andy Rosen – 77-35=112

After 27 holes, there were 11 players within 3 shots of the lead, and it was really anyone’s jacket to grab.  With so much action, I will now mark 5 players with their time of death…

Hart – Hole 10 – Double Bogey
Rosen – Hole 12 – Double Bogey
Rodrigues – Hole 12 – Triple Bogey
Buffington – Hole 13 – Double Bogey
Baker – Hole 15 – Triple Bogey

Leaders with 4 holes left…..
1. Dennis Mello – 125
2. George Costa – 126
3.(t) Walter Hartley – 127
3.(t) Bill Bacchiocchi – 127
5. Reed Bacchiocchi – 128
6.(t) Jay Rowles – 129
6.(t) Nick Baker – 129

At this point every stroke counted.  Rowles made a birdie on 15 but was too far back at this point.  Billy Bacchiocchi made unfortunate bogies on 15 and 18 to just miss out on the playoff.  Hartley and Reed both made costly bogies on 16.  Costa took doubles on 16 and 17 to take himself out of contention.  Mello also bogied 15 and then made a double on 17 that cost him a win in regulation.

Second Round Scores
1.(t) Dennis Mello – 73-69=142
1.(t) Walter Hartley – 72-68=142
3.(t) Bill Bacchiocchi – 66-77=143
3.(t) Reed Bacchiocchi – 74-69=143
5. George Costa 67-77=144

First Ever Playoff in Southers Marsh Club Championship History

There was a capacity crowd on the deck and lawn when Hartley and Mello went back to the 18th tee  for the playoff.  We’ll gloss over the details, but Walter gutted it out to take the hole and win his first Club Championship.  

Thank you very much to everyone who played.  We’re really happy with the level of participation, and we will be planning another event for September, so please stay tuned.
