Want to give a huge shout out to Russell Bastien, our Superintendent and his staff for doing a great job on the course. I have never seen our greens look this good. Their hard work and dedication is paying off and if you see them on the course, please give them a huge thanks. This summer has been very challenging with issues with the water pump and the heat and humidity. The course looks great…
Thanks to everyone who came out for this year’s Junior Tournament on Tuesday Jul 18. It was a hot and humid day for the juniors to test their skills in the 9-hole tournament. It all started 6 weeks ago with around 25 to 30 kids showing up each Tuesday for the junior clinic and 20 kids competing in the Junior Tournament. Again thanks to all the kids and their parents. I look forward to seeing you kids on the course over the summer and really look forward to doing this again next year and watching you all get better and better. And finally want to give a special shout out to Kelli Eagen and Brad McClatchey for helping with the clinic. The winners of Junior Tournament are listed below. Awards will be presented to the Juniors at this year’s Awards Banquet.
