From the Pro ~ Nov 2018

As we come to the close of a soggy 2018 it is hard to believe that the rain really never quit this season, however we look forward to a better 2019. The weather conditions suspended or cancelled nearly every golf event this season including the cancellation of the Club Championship on 3 separate occasions. However after seeing the devastation that the Southeast region of our country had to endure perhaps we should count our Blessings and not our problems.

Justin and his staff worked thru some bad conditions this past week to finish the airification of the green surfaces and if the weather complies this week they will begin an aggressive verti-cut of the fairways. The verti-cut will take a lot of the sponginess out of the fairways next year. We currently have Off-Season rates for Guest Fees as well as an Off-season special:
$80 for an 18-hole foursome with cart (for all membership categories)
$50 for a 9-hole twosome with cart (all categories)
Social and Evening memberships will be permitted to tee off as early as Noon
(for November 2018)

2018 Chili Classic- a great day of weather and Golf was capped off by a great big thunder storm that blew everyone off the course. The prizes were handed out by luck of the draw but we did salvage the proximity winners from the rain: Proximity winners were: Jeff Vince, Dave Horner, Jeff Newcomer, Mike Murphy, Bill Thompson, Stan Treskovich, Mark Elliott, Fred Hohman, Dave Smail, and Ray Zelenak. We hope all 84 that played had a great time!

Sharpen the saw- have you started off-season stretching and weight training yet?

Once again we are asking that everyone in bag storage will please have your bags, clubs, push carts, and club runners out by the end of November. We must do cleaning, painting, and general maintenance, and would like to have the facility clear. Last year we had a few break-ins during the winter months (a.k.a. chipmunks), please don’t forget your equipment. Thank you in advance.

As usual the Golf Shop will be closed every Monday and Thanksgiving Day in November. The Golf Shop opens at 9am Tuesday-Friday, and 7:30 on the weekends.

Holiday Sale- look for emails containing times and surprise sales.
