 Thanks to everyone who made this tournament special, to Pam Hatfield and her team at the bank, to Mike and his grounds crew for their early morning work and to Danielle and her team for their hard work!

     Hi again everyone and welcome to September at Riverton Country Club!! 

     A couple of quick announcements: 
As most of you know, we have backed off to 8:30 a.m. being the earliest available tee time in the mornings, and for the most part, 6:30 p.m. is when the pro shop will be shutting down and the last carts will go out. Most of you know I’m also not real “hardcore” about this so if you call me and tell me you’re running late and need a cart at 6:45 or something, it won’t generally be a problem.

However, while we’re on that note… Some of you can’t get out until after work, and that’s fine, of course. However, some of you also really take advantage of this and play until after dark. If you would have some consideration for us and remember that we can’t call it a day until all the carts are in, we’d really appreciate it. What I mean by that is, if your round is done and it’s dusk, please don’t go play the whiskey run or 10 and 18, just turn your cart in and come back tomorrow.

As the days (sadly) continue to get shorter, we will back off the first tee times even more, to 9:00 a.m., probably around September 15th or so.

The other announcement is, and some of you already noticed this, I billed out handicaps on August 31st. So if you get a bill for $40 and think “I wasn’t out there on August 31st…”, well, that’s why. I also know that a few of you had already come in and paid for your handicap fees, so if you got double billed, please call it to my attention and we’ll get it taken care of. I did my best to try and remember who had paid and who had not.

 If you had a hole in one this year, or in the two previous summers, please stop by the pro shop and let me know the date. I’m trying to get our hole-in-one plaque caught up.

Don’t forget the Labor Day bank tournament this weekend. This tournament benefits a great cause in Help for Hospice and it’s always a great time. Wyoming Community Bank does a great job with the tournament and treats us well. Come out and support them, the cause and the club! 

Please remember that even in this covid-strained year that all special orders for pro shop credit should be in by the 30th of this month, and that pro shop credit will expire October 31st. Be patient with me and with the orders, as everything is taking longer. I really hope this is not true, but I’ve heard through the grapevine that this delay could last another 3-4 years as companies just try to play catch-up. Let’s really, really hope that doesn’t happen. 

Finally, our annual Snowball Tournament will be held October 2nd. We will get a sign up sheet going in the pro shop.

 As always, thanks so much from the pro shop to Mike and his staff and Danielle and her staff for everything they do. It’s been a banner year for the clubhouse and Mike and Dave did a heck of a job with tough conditions.

 Thanks for your attention and until next time…

 Happy Golfing!
