Course Opening Update

Course update, Thursday, April 27th:

The greens have firmed up and are ready to use. The tees are soft and not ready. The fairways/roughs are very wet and not ready. The water is moving, and all the drainage that we’ve put into place over the past several years is working. The 1.25 inches of rain we got throughout the day on Wednesday did not do us any favors.

We will re-evaluate everything about this same time tomorrow. Looking at the weather forecast, if we don’t get any surprises, we should have the course open for play on Saturday morning.

In the meantime, the practice putting green is open, the practice bunker is open, and the driving range and pro shop are both open. Hours for today and tomorrow are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Once the course is open, we’ll be open from 7 a.m. to dark.

Thank you for your patience everyone.

Opening Day Delayed by Mother Nature

Folks, this isn’t the post I wanted to make this morning. Unfortunately Mother Nature decided that we needed an inch of rain and some unseasonably cool temperatures, all of which is not a good combination to help dry out a golf course. So we are not going to be able to open the golf course on Thursday as planned.

We will re-assess everything on Thursday afternoon. I’d say there’s an 80% chance we will be opening on Friday. In the meantime, the driving range and clubhouse are open every day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

We will post another update Thursday afternoon.

2017 Titleist Golf Ball Promotion Ends Tuesday

Titleist has been running a ‘Loyalty Rewards’ promotion during the month of April, and the deadline is this week. Tuesday is the last day that we can enter orders.

In a nutshell, the way the program works is you purchase three dozen ProV1/ProV1x golf balls and you get a fourth dozen for free. The balls have to be imprinted, and you have up to 17 characters per line that you can put on the balls.

The cost is $143.97, which includes shipping and sales tax. Doing that math, that means you are getting the 2017 Titleist ProV1 or ProV1x for just $35.99 per dozen, a 25% savings.

We will take orders over the phone or via e-mail. The pro shop is open every day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Or you can reach us via e-mail at jperdue@pga.com.

Here are a few samples of how you can personalize your ProV1/ProV1x golf balls.

Clearance Sale on 2016 ProV1/ProV1x Golf Balls

We still have a few dozen of the 2016 Titleist ProV1 and ProV1x golf balls in stock. The price has been reduced to $39.99, which is what you can get them for almost anywhere. But what kind of sale would we be having if you couldn’t shave a few more dollars off of that price?

Just so we keep Mr. Titleist happy, we can’t publish the price. But I can promise you this: Nobody around here will beat this price. Quantity is limited to what we have left in the shop. There aren’t many, so don’t wait too long.

Our sale runs today from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The MacGregor Oversize Putter

Legend has it that Ben Crenshaw won the 1984 Masters with a putter he bought at a garage sale for $5. Not sure if it’s true or not, but very possible. Mr. Crenshaw could very possibly putt with a hockey stick and still out-putt most pro’s.

When Jack Nicklaus won the 1986 Masters at age 46, he did it with an oversize putter, the likes which had never been seen before. Of course, MacGregor Golf Company, which Nicklaus was part of at the time, took full advantage of the exposure and produced several oversize models.

As with most gimmicky things, the fad faded quickly. But every so often you’ll see something from the past show up. We have one of those oversize putters here in the pro shop. It’s not the putter Nicklaus used to win The Masters. But it is one of the putters that MacGregor built after his win.

With all of this in mind, this putter can be yours for only $9.99. The price isn’t quite as good as Ben Crenshaw’s $5 putter, and I can’t promise that this will help you win The Masters. But if you want something with a little story behind it, here’s your chance.
