Saturday was the start of our Junior Putt Club classes with the Old Town Rec Center. Ben McPhee added a little extra challenge to his shots on the driving range, then came in the pro shop to demonstrate his steady hands. Ben, you made my day!
Wayne Garthwait, one of our long-time members at Hidden Meadows GC, and part of our morning ‘dew sweepers’ group, told me this morning that he and his wife are moving to Utah. On Monday. This Monday. As in day-after-tomorrow Monday. Wow!
Wayne, I’ve enjoyed our conversations, our time spent on the practice tee, and all of our practical jokes (think Tony Soprano). Thank you for being a member of our course. We are going to miss seeing you here every day. Best wishes to you and your wife on your new adventures. Good luck Wayne!
Great news everyone! We *WILL* be opening the course tomorrow at 7 AM for golfing! Our spring special will be $12 for unlimited golf for the day, walking only. It is still a touch too early to get carts out, but they’ll be there soon! Until then the range is open tonight until 6. We’ll see ya then!
How does winning a free dozen Callaway golf balls sound? Not enough incentive? Okay, we’ll add a Callaway driver. Still not enough? Okay…..well, I guess we’ll just have to include the fairway woods, hybrids, irons, wedges, putter and golf bag. Of course, then you’d still need someplace to use them. So we’ll include a membership with a cart, range balls and lesson package. Do we have your attention now? Tune in to Zone Radio, 620 AM at 7:30 this morning and find out from Rob and Joe how to win the biggest prize package EVER given away from Zone Radio.
We received a shipment of 15 dozen Callaway golf balls with this imprint on it:
So is Stephen King learning to play golf? Or maybe there’s a new book coming out about some horrible happening in the scary swamp behind the 8th hole? What is this all about? You’re just going to have to tune in to WZON 620 on Monday morning around 7:30 a.m. to find out. I can absolutely guarantee you won’t be sorry you did!
Yeah, maybe I’m up to something.
Good news everyone! The frost has come out of the ground, and overall the greens are in good shape. If last year was graded an ‘F’ for conditions coming out of the winter, this year is a strong ‘B+’.
The bad news, there are a few greens that are too soft to put foot traffic on right now, so we will not be opening this weeked Saturday as we had hoped. We don’t want to risk damage to the greens that would take months to repair. So, we’re hoping for an open date of next week Wednesday (the 29th). Until then, the driving range is open every day from 10 AM to 6 PM. See ya then!
