The mystery hole was number 9. Business attended to at the meeting included the following rules: All league members must have an 8 hole handicap card. New golfers will start the season with a handicap of 40 if they haven't had enough rounds in to determine a handicap. Members are asked to call for a tee time before golfing on Wednesday.
