                                                    In Memoriam
      Bob Smyres passed away a few days ago.  He was a charter member of the Simi Hills Men’s Golf Club when it formed in the 1980’s. He volunteered to be an active Board member through the 1980’s, 90’s and into the early 2000’s serving as the Tournament Director.

   Along with several others over the years, Bob helped shape and develop the monthly tournament schedule that we know today primarily consisting of one away and one home tournament each month. Bob’s contributions to the Simi Hills Men’s Golf Club eventually resulted in him receiving a lifetime membership award from the Board.

      Bob believed strongly in the importance of the rules being enforced in tournament golf in the Simi Men’s club events as well as all amateur golf tournaments. In his later years, Bob served as a SCGA rules official in numerous SCGA qualifying events and tournaments throughout Ventura county and beyond.

    Bob enjoyed playing competitive, tournament golf in the Simi Men’s club with those that shared his love and passion for the game. One always knew where they stood with Bob, whether rightly or wrongly, and he was partial to players that kept up with the group in front of them, not the group behind them. Bob also was a longtime member and former Board member of the Elkins Ranch Men’s golf club. Both members of the Simi Hills and Elkins Ranch Men’s Golf Clubs are thankful for their golfing memories and experiences with Bob and will sorely miss him at future events.

The Smyres family has announced there will be an informal gathering of family and friends to honor Bob.  It will be held Thursday, December 6th from 2pm - 5pm at the Grinder Restaurant located at 1820 Los Angeles Avenue Moorpark, 93021.

Please feel free to pass along this information to those who knew Bob and might want to attend.

Kind regards,


December Away - OJAI VALLEY INN AND SPA GOLF COURSE:  Sunday  12/2

Originally scheduled to be the E.O. Nay Course at Brookside Golf Course, due to their newly instituted tournament procedures and the "parking lot" (literally) conditioning of the course, we will not be returning to Brookside in the near futre. 

In its place we will play the Ojai Inn Golf Course at the Inn and Country Club.  This is a tour ready course that hosted senior PGA tournaments as well as the "Skills Challenge" T.V. event.  

This is a $100.00 tournament including carts and range balls and will be a 10:00 am shotgun start.

Simi Hills One-Day Shootout 2-man team event. 

December Home tournament:  Sunday 12/16 (The last of the "$60.00 tournaments")

This is our annual tournament meant to be a fun format that can make friendships as well as destroy a few.  Playing as a two man team, the first 6 holes are played as a 2-man scamble.  Both hit a tee shot and the team selects which they like best and each plays an approach shot from that same spot.  Repeat until holed. Fun...!  Lot's of smiles and low scores. 

The second 6 holes you will play 2-man Best Ball.  Play your own ball the whole way and record the lowest of the two balls.  Fun and a good "Ham and egg" team can score. 

The final 6 holes are 2-man alternate shot.  You play one ball, taking turns hitting the next shot all the way through holing out.  Whereas in the first two formats, if you tank one into the water, your partner can always save your ass.  In alternate shot, each time you do something awful, your partner has to dig you out of the hole. 
Mark Gordon is the Tournament Director

The Simi Cup
Simi Cup will take place next year on Jan 6th, the day after our Hansen Dam away tournament. It will consist of the top 32 players in the standings and the format will be 18 holes of MATCH PLAY with full handicaps being used. This will be a good tune up if you qualify because the next weekend is the first match of team play. The last tournament that counts for points will be our Dec. Away Tournament (Ojai Valley Inn). There is a log jam of players at the cut line, so it should be a dog fight the rest of the way.
