Hello Again and Welcome to October!
Can you believe it, another season has come and gone, my and Janet’s fourth here at RCC.
We feel like it’s been another great year as far as membership and play has gone, though there have definitley been challenges when it comes to getting balls, bags and equipment.
Speaking of which, I need to remind you that all orders for pro shop credit need to be emailed to me no later than October 15th!! And all credit must be used by October 31st. If you put in an order, and I can’t even get it until spring, you’re fine, I will honor your credit, of course. But if you come to me next spring about this year’s pro shop credit, I’ll have to say “I’m sorry”, and I’ll have to be even more stringent about it this year than I’ve been in years past.
The Snowball tournament was a great success, with 23 two-person teams participating.
Winners of the men’s flight were Pat Ibach and Dave Shulz (64), followed Tim Hill and Owen St. Clair in second (66) and Lars Flanagan and Paul Hult in third (67).
Winners of the mixed flight were Amanda Pendergraft and Michael Sawyer (70). They were followed by a five-way tie for second between Sarah McKinney and Jason Lytle, Sheila McPherson and Randy Williams, Pattee NoRunner and Greg Juneau, Debbie Bessey and Don Strom and Jodi Ibach and Bill DeLapp (71).
Speaking of Jodi and Bill, they had the only deuce of the day, and they had two! Both deuces were good for gross skins so they took home $200 for the day! Bert and Brodie Dale had the only net skin for the day and took home $150 and there were six gross skins that paid $20 each.
Thanks once again to Mike, Dave and their staff for a great year under difficult circumstances. Parts were hard to get, seed was hard to get and the weather from winter to spring was really tough, yet they kept our course in great condition. Please thank them when you get the chance.
Also, if you see Mike Keith, along with thanking him for a job well done, wish him a happy retirement! Though he will still be around to help with some consulting, Mike will officially retire and no longer be a country club employee come December 18th.
While you are at it, congratulate Dave Befus!! Dave will move into Mike’s role as our course superintendent, and we are all grateful and happy to have Dave stay with us. We are looking forward to the job he will do going forward.
Thanks again, too, to Danielle, Virginia and their staff for another great year. Under Danielle’s leadership, the restaurant and bar continue to grow in popularity and reputation. Be sure to thank them and be sure to utilize 307 Bar and Grill during the winter. We will post the winter hours on the website prior to November 1.
As a reminder, your $20 “use it or lose it” is in effect for October but will not be required November through February. It will pick up again in March.
With that I’ll close, saying thank you again for a fantastic year. There won’t be a newsletter email next month, but watch for reminders about the annual meeting.
Janet and I will miss you, but see you next spring!!
