From the Pro ~ June 2020
May has come and gone and Golf was in full swing. We have had some beautiful weather and even more of a beautiful Golf Course to play on. The start of the 2020 Golf Season is one to remember and we thank you for your cooperation during all the changes. As we sit and wait to enter the next phase of PA, we have adjusted to the times and developed some unique style of events to keep the competition going. You may have seen flyers of events starting soon, so if you have not signed up, please do so as they are filling up quickly. Please see below for information of some current shop sales, handicap procedures, exchange days and upcoming fitting days.
Online Golf Shop- The Knaus Special(s)
FootJoy Online Golf Shop
With times changing this is the perfect time to be innovative and unique in the Golf industry. Below you will see a link to my FootJoy Online Golf Shop. The site will include FootJoy shoes, apparel and outerwear for Men and Women.

All products purchased will receive 20% off and ship directly to the Golf Shop. All apparel will have the Ligonier Country Club logo. If you love FootJoy, this site is for you!

The Hole-In-One club has started but you may still sign up for your chance to win ($10 entry). All sign-ups from 2019 have rolled over into this year leaving over $800 in prizes. The first person to have a hole-in-one will receive the pot (half cash, half Golf Shop credit.) New for this year, if you have a hole-in-one and are in the club, you will receive a plaque with all the information on it. Once someone has a hole-in-one, everyone in the club will have their account billed for the next chance to win.

Jesse and I are in full swing with lessons and would love to better your game in 2020. One of my favorite quotes from Jack Nicklaus, “Confidence is the most important single factor in this game, and no matter how great your talent, there is only one way to obtain it- work.”
