Our Speakers on February 24th were Head Professional from Plumas Pines Brandon Bowling and his assistant professional James “Tug” Shipp.  With the upcoming Golf tournament, held at Plumas Pines, it was a great kick off to push that event.  They discussed all the new and exicting things happening out at the golf course.  Many of you that have played in the Thursday night Scrambles at Mt. Huff will be pleased to know that this year Plumas Pines will be starting a Wednesday Scramble.  The scramble will be nine holes of golf starting at 4:00 all for $25.  Another exciting thing for Quincy Rotary members is the discount cards given to us.  For Rotary members you can obtain a membership at Plumas Pines for half the price.  This entitles you to pay member rates and to be able to establish a handicap.  Along with the membership there is plenty of vouchers for discounts in the pro shop and Longboards restaurant.
For those that play in a lot of tournaments big groups Plumas Pines is helping people with the new smart phone app, Wanamaker.  Wanamaker is a live scoring app for smartphones.  It allows players to log their score after each hole so everyone can see real time scoring, just like on the PGA tour.  For avid golfers this might be a good reason to trade in your flip phone.
Those that don’t play golf, or don’t play golf well, they are pleased to offer lessons.  They provide lessons for all ages and abilities.  They are available in individual lessons or in multiple lessons.  They also provide summer clinics for kids.  If you want a free lesson just enter our tournament and if you play bad enough you can win free lessons.  Just ask Mr. Gallagher….
Brandon and James also started Fit to Hit Golf.  Fit to Hit Golf is a fitness program specific for golfers.  It is designed to provide specific exercises designed to enhance your golfing ability.  They have a website, www.fittohitgolf.com where you can create a profile, learn about corrective golf exercises and injury prevention, get local instruction and tips, and even a shot tracker.
Lastly they encouraged everyone to come out and support the Rotary golf tournament.  If every Rotarian puts a team together we would have a full field.  It is a fun event no matter what your score is.  Don’t forget you may just win some free lessons.
