President’s Newsletter – November 2014

ENCTA Members and Colleagues,

In August, we were at The Emerald Golf Club in New Bern where Andy Priest from the Carolina Golf Association (CGA) spoke on the rules of golf and how to mark you golf course. Phil Kilmer and his staff had the golf course in excellent condition for those of us who were fortunate enough to play golf.

In September, we had our largest crowd of the year show up at The Sound Golf Links at Albemarle Plantation in Hertford to hear Dr. Leon Lucas do his last meeting for the ENCTA. He spoke on what he saw on golf courses during his travels this summer. Dr. Lucas is retiring at the end of the year from the CGA. He is a fixture in the turfgrass industry here in the Carolinas and he is going to be missed. He was giving a Lifetime Membership to the ENCTA along with some other gifts. Mike Horton and his staff had the golf course in championship form for the ENCTA championship. Wade Faircloth from Taberna Country Club had the low round of the day at 77 to win the overall championship edging out Drew Ramsey from Cutter Creek Golf Club who shot an 81. Bill Jones from Southern Seeds was the net champion with a net of 65.

In October, we will be having our annual Coastal Cup matches against the Cape Fear Association at Cypress Landing Golf Club. This once a year grudge match has been lopsided for the last couple of years and the ENCTA are really looking forward to the opportunity to bring home the cup this year.

We will wrap up our year with our annual business meeting on December 4th at Kinston Country Club. At the annual meeting, we will be electing three new board members and honoring outgoing board members. The outgoing board members are Chris Pearson with Green Resource, Daniel Lancaster with Wedgewood Golf Course and Brian Williams with North Shore Golf Club. I want to thank those guys for all of their hard work that put in for the last two years.

The ENCTA board of governors is so thankful for the support that we have received from our many sponsors this year. Please let us know if there is anything that the association can do to better. Please visit our website at www.encta.org and our Facebook page for more dates and information on our 2014 schedule.
