It’s hard to believe that the 2015 golf season is at our doorstep, there is so much to look forward to. We’ll be hosting our inaugural caddie training class this weekend, the courses are in fantastic shape and this seasons staff will be a source of strength for the Club.
Please join me in thanking Tom Egelhoff and his team for all of their efforts in general during the off season, with high honors for all of the work they have done to get the courses into top form. This includes the work to Sunset with Nicklaus design. Tom has so many areas he is responsible for and most of his work is done under the radar. His teams contributions to the golf and club operations continued success are tremendous.
Please note the following:
Near Side Range Tee Opens Friday, April 24th
We will be moving to the main tee beginning this Friday, April 24th. Please note that the range will be closed on Mondays for maintenance until 9:00 a.m. throughout the season. Additionally, we’ll be moving all play to the rear tee on the range at 2:00 p.m. each day. This practice proved successful last season as the condition of the near side tee was improved significantly from past years.
