one other thing. i was playing up there with chUck the other day and asked him if there was a club that takes care of seatac. he said no, but Guy does some upkeep on it. Why isnt there a local club up there that will take care of that course?
Well, there is a club ...sort of. Since Guy is the de facto course manager, he is kind of the club lead. Those of us that provide maintenance, support, and funds via various tourneys (e.g., 4th Sunday ace pot -shameless plug) and work parties defer to Guy's decisions on what and how the course will be operated and maintained. Herm et al. was the course founder and club lead (Herm's DG Club - really?! a club named for a person and not a course?!
), but that has apparently all been passed along to Guy, and I don't think there's an official club name.
Insofar as random draw dubs on Friday, GREAT! I'm sure there are no issues with that as long as there is $1/head collected for the club. Currently funds are being collected to help pay for new benches - at present, those funds have been primarily coming out of pocket (mostly Guy's).
Long story short, I'm fairly
certain that's what Jub was referring to when he said "have you cleared it with Guy". Lord knows we could use more people out and Seatac not only to play, but to help with the ongoing goal of improving the course and clearing out blackberries, scotch broom, and garbage collection (Jub's forte).
