Ladies' Golf News~ March 2022
After a long winter, the beginning of our 2022 season is in sight.
The Executive Board met on February 9 to map out our schedule. We will begin play on Tuesday, May 3 with the traditional opening scramble. Please sign up in the Pro Shop by Saturday, April 30, so Sean Knaus can make up the teams.
Due to dining capacity limits, the end of the month crush and potential weather problems, our opening dinner will be delayed. It has been set for Thursday, May 14. Cocktails will be at 5:00 p.m. and dinner at 6:00 p.m. Please sign up in the Pro Shop if you plan to attend.
We have usually paid our dues and received our booklet at the dinner. Given the schedule change, members are encouraged to pay dues, set at $65.00, In the Pro Shop the last week of April and get the booklet at that time.
LCC members who are not members of the Ladies Golf Association are invited to play in the opening day scramble and/or to join us for dinner on May 14. They are opportunities to learn about our events and activities. Even if you work and cannot play on Tuesdays, there is a way your weekend play can allow you to compete in events. We have both 18-hole and 9-hole groups and use both the red and orange tees so there is something for all abilities. Plus, we have set tees times for Thursdays and the weekend so you can always find a group to play with.
The Board decided against holding an Invitational this year. Member may bring up to three guests for Friends Day. There will be a cart fee charge for each guest, and you will be responsible for the lunch. Friends Day will be on June 28.
Other important dates to mark in your calendar:
King & Queens: June 14
Queen Bee and Lady Bug: July 19 and 26
Ladies Classic: August 16
Closing Day: October 4
Our schedule will be impacted by Memorial Day and July 4th. As both fall on Monday this year, club will be closed on Tuesday May 31 and Tuesday July 5. It will be open for play on the holidays.
January 2022 Projects
It was quite the busy January at LCC.
The clubhouse facility has been painted, lighting updated in the office, and dishroom floor replaced (after finding it mostly rotted). The lighting is also being replaced in the Ballroom as we await a new chandelier! And on these cold days, our grounds crew has been refinishing the grillroom tables.
Before the snow came along, the grounds crew finished some major drainage projects, refurbished #15's right-side sand trap, and transformed #15's fairway bunker to a mound. Other projects will commence once we thaw out.
And as always, Chef Jessica has been reviewing menus and pricing to bring you the best food at the best value possible, while Sean and Leah plan the event schedule.
Also! The Board approving a new restroom at #10. It will be completed in-house and set into the hill where the old halfway house sat. It will be about double the size of the current restroom. The current restroom is now permanently closed do to aged pipework making it unusable. The building should take 4-6 weeks once the weather allows for work to begin.
A big thank you to our member volunteers who have helped with projects thus far: Daniel McDonald, David Berenbrok, Stan Treskovich, Ed Elliott and Dave Lincoln. Your help is invaluable!
