Lake Ridge Weekly Newsletter Jun 4, 2018
Congratulations to Tom Graeve for getting a Hole-In-One on Hole # 6 on May 31. Tom used his 6-iron from 135 yards. The “ACE” was witnessed by his wife Deb Graeve. This is the 4th Hole-In-One at Lake Ridge this golf season.
MEN’S MEMBER GUEST TOURNAMENT
Well the first annual Men’s Member Guest Tournament was a big success. You could not have asked for a better day as 40 guys battled it out on the course playing 3 9-hole matches followed by a horse race for the winners of each group. And in the end Jon Eagen and Shawn Havelka walked away as the Member Guest Champions by beating Anton Yost and Ronn Nolin on a chip off on the final hole. I would like to thank the tournament committee, Brad McClatchey, Troy Ackerman, Brett Hahn, Ralph Keeler and Don Thompson for all their hard work in making this a huge success. I would also like to thank all the sponsors for their generous donations for all the great flag prizes and all the ladies who volunteered to help. And finally let’s give a huge shout out to the staff at Lake Ridge for all their hard work. Russ and his crew had the course in tip-top shape and Bill put out a great steak dinner. Can’t wait to do this again next year.
ROAD CLOSURE DETOUR
Some of you may already be aware that Murray Road will be closed from May 29 thru sometime in the fall. Apparently they will be replacing the bridge near the earthen dam as you come off of HWY 75. As a result you will need to take a minor detour to get to Lake Ridge. For those not familiar with Beaver Lake when you exit HWY 75, turn EAST onto ROCK BLUFF ROAD. Then turn RIGHT onto MONROE ROAD and then LEFT onto BEAVER LAKE BLVD. Follow the road around until you get back to MURRAY ROAD and turn LEFT. Your back on the right road to get to your favorite golf course and restaurant. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause but this is out of our control. We have maps located between the Men’s and Ladies bathrooms for your convenience.
