March was a great month for golf. We had to deal with frost delays as usual, but most days became sunny and warm. A number of our members saw their handicap improve in March, but that made it more difficult to win a “skin” during our weekend competition. Some our most improved players are Dave Trevisan, Dave Turk, Scott Waite, Dave Cazneaux, and Charles Corrales.
Tip of the Month
If you read all the popular golf magazines, you will find some very helpful tips on the golf swing. Sometimes a tip will help you permanently and sometimes only temporarily. Golf is a wonderful game to learn and the learning never ends. Spending hours on the practice range is only helpful if you are practicing the right fundamentals. You could hit 500 range balls a day and just groove a bad swing. Some golfers practice very little and play the game quite well. The key is to enjoy the activity and you will improve. Lee Trevino had to practice for hours. He was famous for telling someone that if he went one day without practicing, he could see it in his game. If he went two days without practicing, everyone could see it. He also told someone that if he shot under par, he was playing, and if he shot over par, he was just practicing. So, get out and “practice” as much as you can and do it with friends if you wish. Most of all, have fun!

Nobuaki Yamamoto is our new Golf Shop Assistant and we are so happy to have him on our staff. Our former assistant, Will Stromberg, became the Head Golf Professional at Lake Shastina last August and we have missed him dearly. “Nobu” will be a great addition to our Golf Shop Staff. He moved to Mount Shasta from Las Vegas and brought with him years of experience in customer service. He was in the travel industry for many years and has a very pleasant demeanor when meeting, greeting, and providing services to our members and guests. He is also a very good golfer and has already won a bag tag that says, “I beat the Pro at Mt. Shasta Resort.” He even participated in our weekend skins game recently and earned the respect of some very good players.
