Presidents Newsletter September 2021



I apologize for the late newsletter; I have been traveling throughout the 11 western states for the past 30 days and I’m happy to be home.


Not much going on in the way of golf. The course closes on Monday for re-seeding (we hope!)  I won’t comment on anything that has to do with the owners of the golf course, the Bistro, the first hole and driving range and any other parcel that may or may not be in the mix.


The men’s club plans to have a Welcome Back gathering/tournament on November 15th. We will also have our annual General Meeting to approve next year’s board members on that date, so put NOVEMBER 15TH on your calendars and do your best to be at the meeting. More information will follow as to time and location.


I believe we had a hole-in-one in August by Dick Sipe, so congratulations Dick! I hope it’s not the last hole-in-one we get to talk about.


As pertinent information develops, I will keep everyone informed as to the status of the golf course, in the meantime stay positive and stay healthy.
