Jeff Downe and Scott Solotorovshy

Congratulations to Jeff Downe and Scott Solotorovsky for winning the 105th TWA Days Invitational. They won their flight with the highest point total in the field and carried that momentum over into the 4-hole playoff. With both scores counting in the playoff, Downe & Solotorovsky shot a steady even par score of 30 on holes 10, 13 (par 3), 17 and 18 to claim victory by 2 shots. The overall runner-up was much more interesting with 4 teams in a sudden-death playoff. After 2 extra holes, Matt A’Hearn and Chris Burke won the overall runner-up award with two net pars on #10.

Thanks to the 150 members and guests who participated in TWA Days this year and congratulations to all of our flight winners.

Congratulations to Butch Honaker on his recent ace on #11 on July 7th!  

The past few weeks have been great to be out at Glen View Club. The golf course has been in amazing shape and our events have been really well attended.

As we get into the heart of the golf season, I would like to keep everyone updated on our upcoming events and the impact that these events have on the golf course. I would also like to remind everyone that the golf course will open up for play starting at 7:00am on weekdays, and 6:30am on weekends.

The back nine will be available starting at 8:00am on weekdays, and 7:30am on weekends. These starting times are in place to allow Brian and his staff to prepare the golf course for play that day and create an enjoyable experience for members and guests who play the golf course.

We’ve ticked off Putter balance; good looks; Putter length; and now we’re going to evaluate ‘swing weight’
as we help you find the perfect partner for the putting green.
Your Putter is your precision tool. If the
swing weight is too low it makes it more
difficult to control longer Putts.

If the swing weight’s too high
you lose control. 
There’s a tend to shortening the
length of the putter and /
or using a heavier grip.
Both of those changes to
an existing putter,
will lower swing weight.
The final check:
tuning your stroke and
the putter loft to create
the perfect roll.

The first three ‘dating steps’ to find the right putting partner were focused on helping you square the face
down the target line at impact. Your perfect swing weight will help you hit much better first Putts,
and ensure your short pressure Putts are easier to handle.


If you’ve got youngsters learning the game, even young teenagers,
I know you can play together with different handicaps, so over a 500 yard hole one of you is getting extra strokes.
But how cool is it to tackle challenges you can both accomplish equally?

Why not play 9, and make every hole a Par 3? Tee off from where the shortest hitter in the group,
can make the green with a mid-Iron or less.

Golf can be a very challenging game.
But it’s really an opportunity to spend time together with friends or family,
in a healthy, outdoors environment.

In that context, it’s a game that you want each of you to enjoy.
So do your best to create challenges everyone can tackle.

Even amongst good golfers, 9-holes in an evening, where you make each hole a Par 3,
no longer than an Iron approach for the shortest hitter, is a great experience.

Playing competitive Par 3’s also tests your course management, more than you expect.
It really places a focus on your ball striking and scrambling.
If we can help
