Happy New Year! It has been a mild and golf friendly first half of winter in Santa Fe. With that, the Professional Staff is looking forward to an action packed and very productive week in Orlando for the 2016 PGA Merchandise Show. In addition to sitting with vendors, sourcing merchandise, attending educational seminars, we will be meeting with quality intern candidates to round out our 2017 golf operations team. It’s going to be a great year as we celebrate our 25th Anniversary and host our first USGA national championship.
Despite the cooler weather this time of year, there is ample action in the Golf Operations department here at the Club;
