From the Pro ~ July 2020
June was a month to remember where we were back to some normalcy and the weather was beautiful. We had our Opening Day Event that was a big success with 95 participants and a whole lot of fun! We also had our first Buck & Does evening series, crowned a King & Queen and conducted some well-rounded and fun Ladies Clinics.
Below you will see information on new Golf Shop sales, past result winners, upcoming events, upcoming fitting days, reminders, junior golf, and information about the driving range.

Upcoming Fitting Days, Lessons, Exchange Days, Events & Clinics
Upcoming Fitting Days
- Tuesday, July 7 (3 to 7 PM)- Callaway (Putter & Club Fittings available)
- Tuesday, July 21 (3 to 7 PM)- PXG
-Each fitting day will have (8) spots to be custom fit. If you have not been custom fit, you could be costing yourself strokes as no one’s swing is the same.
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.”
LESSON PACKAGE- (Buy 4 lessons, get 1 FREE)

Ligonier’s Junior Golf program will start on Tuesday, June 30. We will have our first Tuesday Clinic with a Play Day to follow on Friday, July 3. The Tee Sheet will be blocked off on Fridays from 8:30am to 10:30 am to allow for this program. We will also have a (3) Day Camp, Pro-junior scramble and a Junior Nite-Lite event with glow-in-the-dark golf balls.
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.
If you have any questions about what is listed above, questions about new product for the year, corporate orders, or anything else, feel free to shoot me an email. We look forward to a great summer and seeing everyone on the Golf Course
