—————  August Newsletter —————

Happy August, everyone!!

 Wow, the heat just keeps on coming! And of course, with the heat comes the dryness and the need for water and, unfortunately, the lack of water…

 The ditch company has now put restrictions in place for the course and for homeowners. I’m sure most of you have already figured out that you’ve been cut back by a third (lost a day of water). Again, we have no control over that and certainly sympathize.

 However, Dave and his staff continue to do great things and the course is in fantastic shape. Dave is losing most of his summer help this week, so if you know of anyone needing work for the next couple of months, send him or her our way!!

 Danielle and her staff also continue to do great things and many nights the bar is buzzing with activity. Thank you, those of you who knew, for your understanding about the grill being closed Sunday afternoon and evening and Monday morning/lunch. As for many restaurants (and other businesses – see above), staffing still presents its issues.

Things in the pro shop continue to go well. I have the new shirts and golf balls in and I am getting special orders in good time now. The July tournaments went very well and in both the Mike Brown Memorial and the Youth Hockey fundraiser we had over 100 players!

 PLEASE NOTE!! Sign up sheets are out in the pro shop for the match-play club championships. I would like to start play this coming Monday, so please sign up this week. Entry is $20 for the first tournament and free for the others! So if you want to play in the overall, the men’s tees-gross, the men’s tees-net and the senior tees, the cost is still only $20. Same for the ladies, you can play in overall gross and overall net for only $20.

 I can’t believe it is August already. Before we know it, the bank tournament and the snowball will be here…

 In closing, kudos to Dave and the staff for how they have the driving range looking. I don’t remember seeing so much green out there for a long, long time.

 Let us know in the pro shop if we can do anything for you.

 Until next time, happy golfing!
