From the Pro ~ December 2021

Dear Members,

As the year comes to an end, we can say thank you in many ways. A big thank you goes out to all that supported the club during the 2021 Golf Season. By bringing guests, playing in events, purchasing golf products from the shop, and visiting the club on a regular basis, you have contributed to making 2021 successful at Ligonier Country Club.

A big thank you goes out to my staff for being a valuable part of the LCC family. Their hard work, dedication and drive make the Golf Operations very successful.

(Jesse, Pat, James, Colton, Gunnar, Ryan, Kevin, Don, Parkes, Bryce, Will & Luke).

Below, you will see information regarding the Golf Shop for the month of December. Come December 1, there will only be 12 shopping days remaining at the LCC Golf Shop. Be sure to check out our fantastic sales including our 12 days of Christmas.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

December Pro News

From the Pro ~ November 2021

Dear Members,

It seems the golfing season has come to an end and the cold weather is shortly upon us. But we do have one last “hoorah” in our Ray’s Revenge Event on November 13, and we can only hope for decent weather. Either way, the course set-up will be one you’ve never seen!

This year was one for the books and fantastic for Golf, outside parties and all our wonderful events. We thank you to all who participated and hope you enjoyed yourselves when playing. Below will be a recap of all events and winners.

I would like to thank my entire staff for a wonderful year but a big thank you goes out to my Assistant, Jesse Cantley, who has been on my Ligonier journey the last two years and has been a perfect fit. As many of you may have heard, Jesse will be moving on to bigger pastures as he has accepted the First Assistant Golf Professional job at Edgewood Country Club. We wish Jesse the best of luck in his career path and thank him for all his hard work and dedication he showed. Jesse did an outstanding job during his time at LCC, made some wonderful friendships, and hit a golf ball like you’ve never seen before (cracked his driver head twice).

If you’re around the club this coming month, stop in and wish Jesse well; he will be with us until Sunday, November 28.

Fall Member Guest Results

2021 Fall Member Guest Results

From the Pro ~ October 2021

Fall has arrived and soon we will start to see foliage all throughout the Laurel Highlands. In my opinion, this is one of the best times to Golf. The weather is cool, the scenery is spectacular, and the Golf Course is in outstanding shape. We hope to see you out on the course and enjoy these last few weeks before snow arrives!

Though Fall has arrived, we keep the tournament season going, with three more fun events for you to participate in. We still have our Bucks & Does Mystery Night, Fall Member-Guest and our Pumpkin Par-3 event. See below to read all the details, ways to sign-up for these great events and information regarding the Driving Range and GHIN Score Posting.

Even though Fall has arrived, I am already counting down the days to the shopping season. Unfortunately getting product, availability and special orders may be hard to get these days. So, this may be the year to shop early and any special orders you may want, please reach out and we will do our best to fulfill your requests. Also, check below in the Golf Shop section to see special order gifts that may fit your perfect someone.
