A word from Wade
We are looking forward to hosting the Jackie Seawell Junior Invitational on Sat. and Sun. October 9th and 10th . For those of you who are new to the area, Jackie was the first PGA professional at Cobb’s Glen and was a great ambassador for golf in South Carolina and a great Jr. Golf leader. Thanks to Matt Harbin and Cobb Oxford for spearheading the idea and bringing it to fruition. It is open to Juniors 15 and under and players are from all over the state. If you would like to see some great golf, just come out next weekend and watch. We hope this will be an annual event and will continue to grow. If you would like to help sponsor this event in the future, please let the pro-shop know and we will get you in touch with Matt or Cobb.
We have had an eventful few weeks here at the club with a small kitchen fire causing damage to our oven and grill. We have those replaced now and are waiting on the electric company to get a part in so we can get back to our regular menu. We still have plenty of menu items available, (cold sandwiches, hotdogs, salads, drinks, snacks). The estimated date for returning to our regular menu is the 11th or 12th but is yet to be determined.
One day last week we opened for business, only to find the cart barn fence had been cut and 3 of our carts had been stolen. We located 2 of them in the field next to Glen View Middle school. A night later someone broke into the maintenance and stole one of the utility vehicles, so we are still missing 2 carts. Never a dull moment in the golf business.

From your MGA President
The MGA has a new event scheduled for October 16th, Dealer’s choice. Dealer choice is a 2-man better format for 18 holes. After the card is turned in, each players draws (2) cards from a deck of cards numbered 1-9. The cards that each player draws will determine what holes their ball is not eligible to be used. Example is player A draws cards 2 and 5, that would mean that his ball cannot be used on holes 2 and 5, his partner will be on his own on those holes. If player B drew cards 3 and 8, then player A would be on his own for those holes. The same thing happens for the back nine, as players draws cards numbered 10 – 18. This could change the team’s score by quite a bit depending on the luck of the draw. The key is the team does not know what how will not be eligible until after the round and the cards are turned in. We will have this event on October 16th and our closing Santa’s open on December 11th . After (4) events this year the MGA championship leader is Don Lucas with 143 points, Ken Rada in 2 nd with 139 and a 4-way tie for 3rd with 136 points between, Cox, Heard, Carson and Roberts. We have (2) more events to earn championship points. Hope to see you all out there on the 16th
