From the Pro ~ October 2023
The colder temperatures have arrived and soon we will see the spectacular fall foliage at LCC. Although the temperatures will start to fall and the nights will be shorter, there is still many days of Golf to play. The greens have healed perfectly from aerification, and they will only get better.
September had its ups and downs, but our 5-Person Scramble was once again a hit. Sean’s Folds of Honor Marathon went as planned and he was able to get 100 holes and raise another $1,000 for the foundation! We also had our first ever, Golf & Gun Bash, that was a huge favorite and will be back in 2024.
As said, October is a beautiful month to play so don’t put those clubs away yet, especially as we have our, maybe, favorite event of the year, Ray’s Revenge! This event is a must play.
Don’t forget, this is the time to start thinking about those holidays’ gifts. If you have something in mind for that special someone, the Golf Shop can cater to your needs. Be sure to check out the below sections with some great holiday gift ideas, including the G-Tech Warming Pouch & NEW, G-Tech warming Vest.

From the Pro ~ Sept 2023
Summer was here and now is “almost” gone. As we look back at the year, we can at least say we’ve had fantastic days of Golf and the course has been superb!
August was a fantastic month for events. We had our Member-Guest, Club Championships, & Glow Golf event.
Congratulations to Sally Sheerer for winning the Ladies Club Championship; Sally is now a 4X winner, winning three years in a row! Also, congratulations to Mario Battaglia for winning his first Men’s Club Championship. Mario battled Dylan Marshall and Aidan Bushey down the stretch but sealed the deal with clutch birdies on the back nine!
Now, we look forward to our remaining events and the wonderful foliage in the area. Our 5-Person Scramble is closely approaching, and our new Golf & Gun Extravaganza Bash is on September 22. Get your tickets now for the Golf/Gun Bash, they won’t remain for long!
Oh! Don’t forget it’s that time of the year again where Sean & now Michael try to raise money for the Fold’s of Honor foundation. This is year 9 for Sean, raising over $110,000. In 2020 & 2021, Ligonier Country Club was recognized as a Top Performer. We did not hit that goal in 2022 but would love to get back on track and raise $5,000 this year for a Scholarship.
September Pro News
From the Pro ~ August 2023
We hope you are enjoying your summer as much as we are but wow how times flies!
July was a theme month for us it seemed as we had our Yellowstone themed Member-Member, Christmas in July Bucks & Does and our College Style Intermediate Night. No matter the theme, each one was filled with participants and a whole lot of fun!
If you missed any of these events, don’t worry, we have many more to come. In August, we will bring back the Thursday Twilight Series, Member-Guest, Men’s & Women’s Club Championship, and Intermediate Glow Golf tournament.
We will also have another Bedford Exchange Day on August 17. The fee to play is $99 and you can sign-up in the Golf Shop as of now. We can call and make tee times two weeks before to get your exact time.
