Dear Members, What a difference a week makes! Last week we hosted our 46th Tartan tournament. For the first time, we offered the new 3-day format, which allowed members to enjoy course play on Sunday as well. Con- gratulations to all of our flight winners, and a special congratulations to our 2018 Tartan champions Joey Bradley and Rudy Theale. This past week we also wrapped up our swim team season. Our talented MacDolphins were undefeated at home during dual meets and took home third place at the league’s championship meet. It is always a pleasure to see our team excel in this arena and we appreciate the efforts of all volunteers and staff involved.

As part of our employee appreciation efforts, we took the staff and their families to a Durham Bulls base- ball game to thank them for all their hard work at the Club. A great time was had by all, and we even ran into a few of our members! As the sale to ClubCorp has been terminated, we are now reevaluating our regional responsibilities. I am excited to announce my return as General Manager of MacGregor Downs! Jeff Shepard will contin- ue with the company, assisting various clubs throughout the east coast region as a Regional Director. As stated in the letter from Peter Nanula, we will be continuing to work with staff, refocusing on improving your member experience, and continuing with our capital improvements. I look forward to seeing you around the Club.

Best Regards, Joseph B. Nowell General Manager, MacGregor Downs Country Club VP of Operations, Concert Golf Partners

The summer is here, and with the warm weather, the course is in excellent condition. Help us keep the course in good shape by doing your part. Please use green sand to fill divots, repair your ball marks, rake your marks in bunkers, follow cart rules, and keep your carts away from tees and putting surfaces. It’s a good practice not to take your push cart between bunkers and the putting surface. Let’s also keep MacGregor clean by picking up the litter we see. My motto is: If you take care of the course, it will take care of you.

Also, please be aware of other golfers playing the course. When it’s hot out there, it’s important to keep moving. Four hours and fifteen minutes for 18 holes is plenty of time to have an enjoyable round. If there is a hole open in front of you, please be considerate of other members and let faster groups play through. Please be aware our members’ time on weekends is valuable. We appreciate you following guest policies, and please help us keep the tee sheet accurate. If you are not using the space, please remove names not playing.

Following these guidelines will make your MacGregor Downs golf experience enjoyable for yourself and everyone around you. We appreciate your attention to these matters.

Thursday, July 26, 6:30PM Elenor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman Meet Eleanor Oliphant: She struggles with appropriate social skills and tends to say exactly what she’s thinking. Nothing is missing in her carefully timetabled life of avoiding social interactions, where weekends are punctuated by frozen pizza, vodka, and phone chats with Mummy. But everything changes when Eleanor meets Raymond, the bumbling and deeply unhygienic IT guy from her office. When she and Raymond together save Sammy, an elderly gentleman who has fallen on the sidewalk, the three become the kinds of friends who rescue one another from the lives of isolation they have each been living. And it is Raymond’s big heart that will ultimately help Eleanor find the way to repair her own profoundly damaged one.

Thursday, September 6, 6:30PM The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead Cora is a young slave on a cotton plantation in Georgia. An outcast even among her fellow Afri- cans, she is on the cusp of womanhood—where greater pain awaits. And so when Caesar, a slave who has recently arrived from Virginia, urges her to join him on the Underground Railroad, she seizes the opportunity and escapes with him. In Colson Whitehead’s ingenious conception, the Underground Railroad is no mere metaphor: engineers and conductors operate a secret network of actual tracks and tunnels beneath the Southern soil. Cora embarks on a harrowing flight from one state to the next, encountering, like Gulliver, strange yet familiar iterations of her own world at each stop. As Whitehead brilliantly re-creates the terrors of the antebellum era, he weaves in the saga of our nation, from the brutal abduction of Africans to the unfulfilled promises of the present day. The Underground Railroad is both the gripping tale of one woman’s will to escape the horrors of bondage—and a powerful meditation on the history we all share.

JUNE Brian and Brittany Wilder 119 Dunedin Court Honorable Mention Gail Duncan 204 Glasgow Road YARD OF THE MONTH Congratulations to our MacDolphins and MacMinnies Swim Teams for another great season! Our MacMinnies started the season at the beginning of June and even after a few short practices, began to show off their newly acquired and honed skills. Our swimmers worked hard each week to learn new skills like rainbow arms and floating on their backs while also getting comfortable in the water and gaining confidence in their swimming. Their season ended with a final mini meet, where our swimmers got to show off their swimming talent!

Our MacDolphins Team has worked so hard again this year to not only hone their swimming skills but also focus on friendship, team spirit, and sportsmanship. Many of our swimmers beat their own records this year, and we are so proud of all of our dedi- cated swimmers who represented our team at the individual dual meets. Our team was undefeated at home during dual meets and took home third place at our Championship Meet this year. We want to give a very special thanks to our coaches, our parent committee, and each and every swimmer and their family for making this Summer even better than the last. We hope to continue to grow our teams and look forward to 2019!

This is an important skill for properly sequencing the backswing and generating a good separation or coil. This movement requires good thoracic spine mobility, and also good lower body stability. If you’re having trouble with this move in your backswing or follow-through, then try the 90/90 Stretch. Lie on the Ground on your side in a fetal posi- tion, with legs tucked up to your torso at a 90 degree angle. Keeping your knees together, rotate your chest and top arm across to the other side of your body. Repeat several times, then switch to the other side. You should feel a stretch through your torso and the muscles of your middle and Happy golfing!
