Dave and I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend. We got to see some of you out and about at the club, which is great to see. Looking forward, this weekend is the Senior Men’s Club Championship on Saturday and Sunday. So far, participation is up 40% over last year! Also on this Saturday is the Ladies Fleck Member / Member. Here again, participation is up 40% over last year. Thank you to everyone who has participated in all of our events this year so far.
Looking a little further ahead, next Saturday July 16th is the course history tour and original 9 hole tournament. Please be aware that the club will be closed all day for this event. If you are planning on attending, please sign up in the Golf Shop so there is a more accurate count of people. A quick side note: Dave and I would like to thank John Nason for his comprehensive research of our club’s history. His decade by decade articles that have been in the monthly Shank Newsletters have been so interesting and fun to read. Without people like John, our club’s history would fade away and be lost. We appreciate all your efforts!
Also looking ahead, sign ups are in place for the Men’s Club Championship, as well as the Mr. & Mrs. Championship. When signing up for the Mr. & Mrs., you can request 2 other couples you would like to play with, as groups will be 6 players based on the format of the event. For the Men’s Club Championship, please denote if you would like to play in the championship flight, which is a 3 day event, or if you would like to play in the correct flight based on your handicap. There is still room to sign up for the Ladies Senior Club Championship, which is also seeing a bump in participation over last year. Finally, Couple’s League returns to the schedule Wednesday July 20th. If you are interested please contact myself, or Madonna McCarthy.
One final thing to note before we get into the weekly outlook is, all returning Hooper Participants must have a completed application, including Guest’s Name, GHIN Number and the guest’s Home Club, turned into the Golf Shop no later than July 10th. For those on the waiting list, please turn a Hooper application in to the Golf Shop as well to retain your spot on the waiting list. Alright, now we can look at this upcoming week in depth.
