Las Campanas Santa Fe -Beautiful Homes For Sale and Great Golf

Update from Jason Epstein, Golf Professional at The Club at Las Campanas

We are looking forward to a great month of May and wanted to take this opportunity to update you on the course work, course availability, and several of the months upcoming events.

Sunset- I am pleased to report that the bulk of the work involved with the course project, which includes the renovation of the bunkers, elimination of the gravel, and changes to holes #12 and #16 on Sunset will be completed by this coming Friday. The project won’t be fully completed until we are able to fill the bunkers with sand which has been delayed due to rail availability. As of today, we are expecting the first sand delivery to arrive in the next two weeks, with the final delivery here by month’s end. This could change as the schedule is out of our control until the sand is delivered to Albuquerque. The sand (1200 tons) is being shipped from Ohio to Albuquerque via rail (12 cars) and will be delivered to Las Campanas by truck (48 dump trucks full). Once here, it won’t take long to get the bunkers ready for golf. Our first priority is to open the front loop on Sunset, with the back loop to follow. The Golf Committee is considering opening Sunset prior to the sand arriving and playing the bunkers as Ground Under Repair, pending the news we receive on the delivery.

We’ll provide an additional update every Monday from here on out on the sand delivery and course status. Please keep in mind that there will be ground under repair on holes #12 and #16 for the next several weeks where sod has been added…and that Hole #12 will be on a temporary green for most of this season.

Please keep all of this information in mind as you schedule guests heading into June as it may impact their experience.

Golf Marathon-The staff and I are looking forward to the 2015 Golf Marathon, benefitting the Sun Country Junior Golf Foundation, The Employee Scholarship Fund and the Folds of Honor Foundation. Together, we’ve raised over $55,000 the past 3 years and hope to beat last year’s total of $25,000. We couldn’t do it without your support!!!

I’m pleased to report that due to last year’s marathon contribution, The Club was honored by The Folds of Honor Foundation as a Top 100 performer. Well done! This years pledge form is attached. If you’d like to commit a set amount you can do so by reply to this email. Thank you in advance for this year’s success.

Kickoff Tournament- This year’s Kickoff Tournament is only 5 days away! Join us this Saturday May 9th for our annual season beginning event. A scramble format, we promise lots of fun stuff on the course and plenty of Bloody Mary’s to go around. 10:00 a.m. start, awards, appetizers and members bar following play.

Play with The Pro’s- Join the staff on the course Monday May 18th for a great day of golf, learning and fun…followed by lunch. Registration is limited, call the golf shop or log on to the ForeTees event registration to secure your spot today.

Member-Member-Member- Don’t miss our second annual Member-Member-Member on Saturday May 23rd. Mixed teams of three will compete in a team format where one low ball on the Par 4’s and two low balls on the Par 3’s and 5’s will determine the team score. This is a net event.

Demo Days- Our demo day series has been a tremendous success and we look forward to building on the great products in the market this year. The Professional Staff will be heavily involved in each, it’s a great way to test your current equipment against “the new stuff”. Note the following May Demo Day’s:

Taylor Made Demo Day- Saturday May 16th
Ping Demo Day- Thursday May 21st
Callaway Demo Day- Friday May 29th

As always, please let me know if there is anything we can do for you at The Club.
