Good afternoon everyone, I hope you are staying warm and preparing for the upcoming holidays. We are excited about this years holiday events at Anderson Country Club I will touch on them during this update. Thanks to all who have come out to dine and try our new menu. Chef Kevin has done a tremendous job putting that together and whipping the kitchen into shape. We have created some opportunities to come out this month that you should take advantage of. Wing night Wednesday… this is every Wednesday in November and can be dine in or take out. We have had 2 really good Friday night dinner specials so far, the Swordfish Steak last Friday was dynamite, and this Friday we have a Crab-Stuffed Flounder special, the last Friday of the month is Prime Rib night.
The menu is being well received, the steaks are definitely an upgrade, we have heard great things about the maple-glazed salmon and of course the “ricky bobby” buffalo wings. The chips and salsa are tremendous as well, the salsa which has a bite is made in house and is an excellent table starter for those wanting to just hang out and have dinner. Friday evenings have been really fun around here the last few weeks its great to see the bar full and our members enjoying themselves.
Thanksgiving is right around the corner, get your RSVP’s in we are serving from 11A-2PM. The club will be decorated for Christmas on the 3 days leading up to Thanksgiving so it should be a festive environment. The club will be closed Friday the 23rd-Monday the 26th and re-open on Tuesday the 27th. The golf course, weather depending will be open on those days.
Save the dates for these Christmas events that are upcoming we have the Santa Brunch this will be similar to the Breakfast with Santa, it will be on Sunday December 9th, from 11-2. We will still have the horse drawn carriage rides, and of course Santa Claus will be here. The Yuletide dinner is scheduled for Thursday December 20th from 5:30-8:30 with our member appreciation complimentary cocktail hour. We will have a holiday wine tasting on December 21st at 6:00 PM. Details will follow on all those events.
We will tweak our hours now that we are, sadly, heading into the winter. We will be open Tuesday thru Thursday and Saturday 11 AM-8PM for lunch and dinner, Friday’s 11:00 AM- 9:00PM. We will be closed on Sunday’s starting December 2nd.
We will have some more updates as we work to get a solution to the old bar when they come available. I have heard the feedback and think we have a pretty good idea of what to do, so stay tuned.
We are also going to be introducing a member application for your mobile devices that you can get “ACC News Feed” called Clubster, you will be able to see updates to the club, dinner specials, make RSVP’s, create groups etc… we will still email club news but it will come in a different format. It will basically be a social media site for our club only, it will be fun and a new way to interact and communicate with one another.
Thanks to everyone I look forward to seeing you all at the club this holiday season.
