Holiday Events coming soon!
Thanks to everyone who came and spent Thanksgiving with us here at the club it was fun to be here and see all of you on my favorite holiday of the year. We have some holiday events coming soon that we would love to see you all at:
Ladies Guest Luncheon is Thursday December 15th: Anderson High School's Jazz Ensemble will be providing holiday entertainment. Starts at 11:30 AM Entertainment at 12:00. Menu is side cranberry salad, and hot brown turkey bacon sandwich, and creme brulee for dessert. RSVP with email@example.com fee is $15.00 per person.
New Tee Box construction is progressing.
As the weather turns to awful we wanted to keep you updated on our little project of adding tee boxes throughout the golf course. Duke and his crew have placed 6 new forward tee boxes on the golf course. This will accomplish getting our ladies par back to 72. The forward tee which will be yellow will play around 4900 yards. The "gold" tee will now be green in color and will play around 5500 yards. White will play around 6300 yards and the blue at 6605. We will have new scorecards printed early in 2017 however we won't be able to print the course rating and slope on them until the course gets re-rated early in the spring. Our goal is simple to make the golf course more enjoyable from our forward tees. We will request that all 4 tees are rated for men, and the forward 2 tees rated for women. This will allow super-seniors to post scores from the forward tee if they play from there.
The new tee are placed strategically around the golf course #2 will have a new box at about 115 yards which is in front of the approach. #4 will have a new tee box on the left side rough which will make the hole play straighter and shorter (255 yards) from the forward tees and also make it a par 4. #11 will get a new tee box in the right rough straighten that hole from the forward tees it will play 220 yards. #12 will have a new box on the left side of the rough that will play 280 yards and a par 4 which is 100 yards shorter than where the forward tee was. #16 will have a new box shortening the hole to 430 yards from 465, and finally #17 will have a new box at 95 yards to the middle of the green.
There were some errors on the current scorecard on yardage. For example, #4 is 344 from the gold tee box instead of 407. #13 forward tee box actually measures at 275 as opposed to 328. #16 Gold tee boxes measure at 485 instead of 505. Some of these will be inconsequential due to the new placement of tee boxes however I am not sure if the course was rated initially on these yardages or not.
Another change we will be making as a club rule will be the ditch on #5. We had some success in our club events this year with a local rule that states. "any second shot that falls within the hazard on #5 the player as an option may proceed to a drop zone located to the right of the cart path on the other side of the hazard with the penalty of 1 shot" this will be a club rule going forward for the 2017 season. The idea here is to not punish those who have a hard time clearing the hazard with their second shot. It will also help the pace of play. It is a rule that we believe will benefit all players and our club.
I will keep you up to date on what the changes to the golf course will mean to course handicaps and such as we get closer to spring time. We won't know exactly what to expect until the course gets re-rated. If you have any questions or want to see the new scorecard yardages feel free to give me an email or call.
Good afternoon, I hope you are all enjoying this fine fall weather we have had over the last couple of days. I hope fall is very good to us. I want to announce a new menu as promised we would revise a menu each quarter and there are some cool things on this menu you should try.
My favorites so far are the Chicago Beef sandwich it is served on a Ciabatta bread with roast beef and provolone melted in. It also comes with Au Jus sauce for dipping and a side of Giardiniera. The bone-in chicken wings are hearty!! My favorite sauce is the buffalo and BBQ, it also comes with Caesar and hot sauce.
We have gotten good compliments on the Italian Grinder, and the Chicken Cordon Bleu Salad. Taco Salad, Cranberry Turkey Sandwich, and Smoked Ruben Sandwich makes it's way back on to the menu.
Dinner Entrees that are new are Crab Cakes, Smoked Chicken Ravioli, Grilled Salmon served with a pumpkin risotto. Steak Oscar is new with an 8 oz. Filet, parmesean risotto, and asparagus with Hollandaise sauce.
Don't forget to make your Brunch Reservations for Sunday, excited that you all are willing to support our monthly brunches I am looking forward to having one each month for the foreseeable future.
Thanks again for your support,
