Congratulations to new Board Members Mike Ibach and Tom Nirider.
Thanks to Brad McPherson and Chris Pendergraft for their years of service to Riverton Country Club.
Greetings from the Pro Shop!
Well, we can’t believe October is here already.
It’s been another great, albeit slightly different, year.
The Wyoming Community Bank Help for Health Hospice tournament was a great success. Over $11,000 was raised for this great cause and a great time was had by all. This was the largest showing for this tournament in the three years Janet and I have been here. It’s time to use up that pro shop credit. By the time you read this, the date for special orders will have passed, but you can still spend your credit in the shop until October 31.
We will be reducing the hours we are open over the next four weeks. By October 14 or so, we won’t take tee times until 9:30 and won’t be sending carts out much past 5:30. The range hours will mirror these times, as well.
There have been some questions about the new handicap system. Blake has a great explanation up on the website now, and I will be holding a seminar on handicapping and rules in late March or early April of next year. I hope that will clear up some of the confusion.
As some of you know, the fountain in 16 pond crapped out on us and it will take $1500 to replace. We are going to be taking donations for a new fountain and will put buckets out in the pro shop and the restaurant.
Janet and I have worked hard to make this another enjoyable year. We hope you appreciate some of the little things, like the new ball bags on the range. That being said, we are always open to suggestions on how we can make things better for you.
Let’s continue to work together and grow our club.
Thanks for another great year, and we’ll see you next spring!
Congratulations To All Of Our Club Champions!!
This year’s match play format was a big hit. Everyone enjoyed it, and there were some really great matches and some really great play.
Parker Paxton is our overall men’s club champion. Parker won his final match 8&6, and he and his uncle Rick played the holes out and Parker fired a 65 from the tips! Congrats, Parker!!
Tasya Ravellette is our overall women’s club champion. Tasya and McKenzie Graham had a great battle going but Tasya pulled away on the back nine and won 5&4.
Matt Mortimore is our “Men’s Tee” Gross Club Champion. This was a very competitive flight and the cream rose to the top, with Matt and Nick Vosika, two of our lowest handicap members battling it out in the final, which Matt won 3&2.
Lars Flanagan is our “Men’s Tee” Net Club Champion. There was some outstanding play in this bracket, too, and Lars edged Jon Cox in the final 4&3.
Macey Mortimore is our Women’s Net Club Champion. Macey played extremely well throughout the tournament, and the competition was stiff, with several gals who didn’t get a lot of strokes giving Macey all she could handle.
Roger Eder is our Senior Club Champion. Roger outlasted Ron Vosika in the final, and while the turnout for this bracket was small, the competition was good. We’ll look forward to this bracket being larger next year.
Thanks to everyone who participated, and we will run match play again next year, starting earlier in the year so more teachers and our coaches can participate!!
