The range has once again been very busy this year, the use of woods is discouraged, please be very careful when hitting any balls at the practice facility. Please use the new path the entire distance to the range back behind #18 green, past #16 tee on the left then into the new opening to the right side, do not cut thru #9 fairway.
The Golf Shop is committed to your enjoyment while you are here at the facility. As with any job there are uncomfortable and touchy situations that arise from time to time. Details of your membership can be found on the website and management is happy to discuss or clarify any questions.
