Cheers to July!

“King” Stan Treskovich and his “Queens” Darlene Elliott, Sheryl Hershock and Karen Hough ruled the course and the rest of the field in the King and Queens tournament.  Treskovich and Bill Hough took home honors for long putt while Ed Elliott and Bill Hough won closest-to-the-pin prizes.

Although no organized event is conducted on Friends’ Day, hostess Becky DeMuth made everyone feel like a special friend with on-course snacks and a wonderfully chosen luncheon for the occasion.

The first round of the Queen Bee, organized by last year’s winner Cindy Bode, was played on July 30.  We will have to wait until the following Tuesday to name this year’s “Queen Bee”.  The 9-holers will also contest their Lady Bug tournament on the same day.  Cocktails and dinner for all players follow the event on August 6. 

Mark August 13 on your calendars for the Ladies’ Classic.  There will be shotgun starts of 1:00 (18-holers) and 3:00 (9-holers) followed by cocktails and dinner.  This is a net tournament with proximity prizes. 

Thank you to John Klinchock and his golf staff who planned and organized the Ladies’ Invitational that was held on July 2.  See John’s newsletter item for the full results of the tournament.

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. 

Thank You
