What’s going on

News

Well I was hopeful it would be earlier but mother nature hasn’t cooperated.  Our opening plans are below.

Pro Shop will open on a normal basis March 15th at 10:00 AM

Carts will be allowed on the course on March 15th starting at 10:00 AM.

Walking the course currently is permissible, as always pretty please fix ball marks on smooth out.

The weather looks hopeful for next week Thursday on..

Enjoy golf on TV this weekend and Basketball.  Next week is golf season!

Good morning everyone, we are excited about the golf course officially opening for golf carts very soon. Our hope is sometime next week, in the meantime you are welcome to come out and play and walk or use a pull cart. Duke and crew have been out cleaning off fairways, and many of you will be happy to hear they are out trimming trees so they don’t hang so low. He is still waiting to mow greens our greens are push up and very clayish so they don’t dry out as well as some of the newer courses with sand greens. It is still too soft to mow.
We have a free of charge fitting Taylor Made fitting experience coming up at Prairie View Golf Club, the date is March 17th from 11A-5PM, we have some openings left, I will be doing free putter fittings as well. Please let me know if you are interested in participating as spots are getting booked up.
We have removed the tennis courts and the fencing around them, the electric poles and lights on the east side of the courts will be coming down as well. this was an eyesore for several years. In the process we have sustained some damage to our cart path around the cart barn, please excuse our mess during the process.
While we currently don’t have any plans to do anything with the space we have lots of ideas but nothing imminent or being planned at the moment. Glad the eyesore is gone and it makes a tremendous difference. We will put top soil down and seed very soon.
Zach is in the pro shop now, we will bill for lockers and club/pull cart storage in the month of March so you have 31 days to decide if you are going to keep those services in 2018.
Pro Shop Merchandise will start to trickle in during the months of March and April, new fun stuff everyday.
Looking forward to golf season, and seeing all of you out playing very soon.

It’s February 8th, we are passed the holidays, past the Super Bowl and now its time to look forward to some warm weather…… I don’t know how long that is going to take to get here but we can at least plan for what we want to do when it gets here.  As most of you know and have met we hired a new golf professional, Zach Dryer, thanks to all who came out to the meet and greet last week.  We have been working on plans for the 2018 golf season, including the schedule of events for Men’s/Women’s/Juniors/ PGA Junior League those will be up on the website any day now.  Zach is going to put together Women’s clinics, for the spring which we hope you all will participate in, it will start in March.  We are excited to have a relationship with the Golf School of Indiana at Prairie View Golf Club, if you want to get fit for clubs or putters or just scratch the itch.  Please let us know if you would like to go down and hit some of the newest equipment on the market.  We will have a member-fitting day on Saturday March 17th from 11A-5P.

The golf course got some work late in the fall, Duke was able to re-sod the fairway areas on 9,11 and 13 that were damaged by rainfall, also finished sodding the remainder of the new tee boxes.  Also we have enough fill to fix the bunker, water mess to the right of #18 fairway, that project will be finished sometime by late spring.

Save the date, we are putting together a member trip to Victoria National in Evansville, Indiana for April 5th-7th, we are still working on pricing for the trip and hope to put that together sometime next week.

The interclub tournaments this year will have a new twist, we will do a 4 club interclub tournament.  It will rotate between ACC, Ulen CC in Lebanon, Hillview in Franklin, IN, and Dye’s Walk in Greenwood, IN.  We will host the first event on Wednesday April 25th.   This is on the schedule.  It is also our turn to host the reciprocal interclub tournament which was hosted last year by Kokomo CC,  I am working to get a date for that.

This year in the pro shop we will carry a wide array of products and a few new things.   Hard goods we will focus on Callaway, TaylorMade, and Titleist.  Under Armour, Puma, Fennec, Donald Ross, Antigua, Columbia outerwear, and Adidas will be prominent in the shop.  We also have a few smaller accessory lines that will be new, including Black Clover headwear and CMC custom accessories.  We will carry 3 footwear lines, Adidas, Puma and Ecco.  Ecco is new this season and is a very comfortable shoe, excellent if you like to walk.   Things should start arriving around 3/1/18.

I hope to have more information for you as we get closer to golf season.  Zach is in the shop during the week preparing for the season if you get a chance to stop by please do so.

Stay Warm,

Brian Garrett

 

Good morning ACC Membership, we are excited about our 1st annual Year-End Hog Roast this Saturday October 21st.  We are having a member appreciation event that is free for all membership classes. We also have constructed a new firepit right outside the bar and terrace area.  We feel that this is much needed as we don’t have great outdoor space for our members to relax with their families or their guests.  It will be ready on Friday evening we will start a fire around 4:30 PM or so please feel free to come out and enjoy it.  We are roasting a hog for Saturday so you come by then and have dinner or lunch on us as an appreciation for a great year.

Saturday we also have our last golf event of the year, Beat the Pro.  I will play 18 holes from Blue Tees, ball down against any member of the club with their full handicap.  You can risk up to $200.00 and you will double that if  your net score beats my gross score.  This is a good opportunity to build some additional shop credit if you have been eyeing something.  (I haven’t played great this year btw)   You can play with your own groups just register in the pro shop on Saturday before you tee off.

Next Friday October 27th we are fortunate to have an opportunity to have the Tuneta Torciano Winery come visit our facility and host a Wine School.  This will be a really fun event as we will provide italian meats and cheeses, and Italian grown wines and oils.  Please sign up for this event you won’t be disappointed.  We will provide childccare for the evening.  The event starts at 6:30 PM.  For more information on Tuneta Torciano Winery visit their website at www.torciano.com

 

Thanks all!

 

Good afternoon everyone, I hope this note finds you dry on this rainy July day.  I hope all of you enjoyed your 4th of July holiday with family, and friends.   I apologize having not been writing lately, the month of June was incredibly busy.  We hosted the Indiana Girls State Junior Tournament, St. Vincent’s Pairings Par-TEE, and Golf Classic, 50th Annual Invitational and several golf outings, corporate events.  We also had a tragedy with the loss of one of our favorite staff members Coronado Scott.  Thanks to all of your kind words and encouraging notes during the past month.

We are looking forward to a great couple of months ahead.  We are planning on our Gourmet Wine dinner for Friday July 21st.  We will have the menu out in an email very shortly. We plan on doing 2 of these per year one in July and the other in November.

Also we have some neat theme nights coming up!  Steak Night is this Friday, Seafood Night the following Friday, and we end the month with Fried Chicken.  We are making a few tweaks to the standard menu, we are using some of the more popular Feature Menu items and making them permanent.  The return of Turkey Bacon Sliders is upon us.

The pool has been busy and fun this summer, we have opened up the small gate to make it easier and quicker to get food in and out plus it makes for easier access to the bar.  We have purchased more umbrellas and they have arrived so we should be able to have more spots for shade for the rest of the summer.

Please help us keep the golf course beautiful and smooth by repairing your ball marks and sanding or replacing your divots.  We have had more play this year than in years past but we should still be taking these steps to keep our greens and fairways beautiful.  We do provide free repair tools in the pro shop, the single prong are the best in repairing pitch marks.

I will be more active with the my posts now that June is over with.  We do have some fun outside events we are promoting for you to play in. Primarily the Madison County Chamber/United Way Golf Outing scheduled for July 14th. We are selling 50/50 ball drop tickets in the pro shop, we are also looking for teams.  Please consider playing in this event.

I will see you all very soon!!

 

Thanks,

 

Brian Garrett, PGA

 

Good afternoon everyone, while we can’t play a lot of golf right now, we can certainly talk about it.  I have received back our new course ratings and slopes for our new tee boxes.  I am glad to share them with you today.  I am not sure exactly when they will “go live” my guess is on the next revision date of May 15th.  I will let you know if that is the case otherwise.

Our goal was pretty simple, give the forward tee a more enjoyable experience.  Give options to players that are new, or aging, and to encourage players to play from the more appropriate tee box for increased enjoyment.  We rated the course for men from all 5 tee boxes Blue, White, GW Combo, Green, Silver, and for women from the Green and the Silver.  We will print new scorecards with the ratings on them and should have them by the end of the month.  Only thing left on this project is for the grass to grow on the tees.

The course rating committee seemed to think that the golf course was a fair easier for the scratch golfer, and more difficult for the bogey golfer as compared to the last rating team.  You will see a decrease in the Course Rating, and an increase in the Slope Rating.

A USGA Course Rating is the evaluation of the playing difficulty of a course for scratch golfers under normal course
and weather conditions. It is expressed as strokes taken to one decimal place, and is based on yardage and other
obstacles to the extent that they affect the scoring ability of a scratch golfer.
A Slope Rating evaluates the relative playing difficulty of a course for players who are not scratch golfers. The lowest
Slope Rating is 55 and the highest is 155. A golf course of standard playing difficulty has a Slope Rating of 113.

Course ratings are determined, by permission of the USGA, in accordance with the USGA Course Rating System™ for
the purpose of providing a uniform basis of which to issue a Handicap Index. USGA Course Rating, Slope Rating®,
and Handicap Index® are marks owned by the USGA and may only be used in connection with the USGA Handicap

Men:

Blue Tees:  71.9/130

White Tees 70.3/128

Green/White Combo 68.1/122

Green 66.7/113

Silver 63.5/108

Women:

Green: 71.4/124

Silver 68.1/117

Golf season has started, then stopped, then started again, and now is stopped.  I am hopeful we dry out here over the next few days as we all need to get out and play.  After 3 straight days last week of 75 plus degree weather, we got 3 inches of rain dumped on us this weekend.  I think we will be able to open Tuesday for our Ladies Opening Scramble and Men’s Twilight League, but we can’t take much more.  The golf course itself is in great shape.  The greens are just wonderful, very smooth I have played at 2 other places so far this season and it’s not even a comparison, Duke has the greens pure.

Twilight League is off and running, first team night is Tuesday May 9th.  We have 40 players, 8 teams of 5.

Men’s Opening Scramble/Calcutta is this weekend. We need you all to sign up we had 32 players last year.  Hopeful to be at that number again.  Auction for teams is Friday night, Tournament is Saturday at 10:00 AM.  Entry Fee is $100.00 and is a cash payout.

The Ole’buddy tournament will be drawn on Tuesday.  Any last minute entries need to be in the pro shop no later than 5:00 PM May 1st!!!  We have 22 teams signed up so there will be some play in matches.  Good turnout and reception on this event, looking forward to the season long tournament.

The new tee boxes have been seeded. Duke will be sodding some of the spots in the fairways that need repair like #13 fairway.  Bunkers will be getting edged soon as too.

The USGA-IGA course rating team was out last Monday and rated and played the golf course.  We should have our new ratings in one more week, they will be posted in the pro shop I will send them out the course will be rated for Men from all 5 tees, and for Women from Green and Silver.  I am anxious to see how they come out.

Please stop by a sign up to play the Opening Scramble for Women and Men this week.

Good evening everyone, I apologize that I have been absent from our happenings page of late.  As many of you know my wife and I welcomed our 3rd baby into the world on April 4th, 2017.  Her name is Sarah Jasmine Garrett and she is perfect, so I will use that as an excuse for why I haven’t been posting.  We have lots going on at our club so I will do a two part post, one for club happenings and another about the golf season that is off to an up and down start weather wise.

Thanks to everyone who attended Easter Brunch we served 300 of you and your guests, food was very good and it was nice to see so many in attendance.  We will having our Mother’s Day Brunch on Sunday May 14th, we should have a complete menu sometime this week. Please RSVP with Laura.

We are getting started on a Gourmet Wine Dinner for the early Summer, similar to the one we did in November.   We will get a date and details out very soon.

Our feature menus our really a hit, please provide feedback as to what you like.  The idea with the Feature Menu is to simply allow our chefs to be creative and mix up different dishes.  We will tweak our main menu as the season is changing.  The feature menu this time includes: 2 lobster dishes, Lobster Stir Fry, and Sweet Maine Lobster Tail.  Also after a bit of begging on my part a Cuban Sandwich.

Our next Wine Tasting for Wine Club members is Friday May 19th, we will have a new presenter from Shepherd Distributing with us, he is very interesting and has some nice quality wines for you to try.

Pool season is getting closer, we have the pool cleaned and painted. We should start filling here in the next week or so depending on the weather.  The pool will about

We will start serving dinner on Saturday’s starting May 27th.  Dinner hours on Saturdays will be 5:30-9:00 PM.  There will be Saturdays where the club will be closed for Private events we will email those out in advance.

Lastly,  we have a bunch of new faces around the club, if you see someone you don’t know, welcome them to our club, invite them for a drink, or a round of golf.  After a year here I found that this club is very welcoming and its easy to make friends.  This place is pretty awesome welcome our new members and show them how great it is.  See you all soon!

 

Good afternoon everyone,  it’s Master’s Week.  Probably my favorite week of the year for golf.  It is a celebration of the game, and the beauty, history and serenity when you see the images of Augusta National on TV.  I would ultimately tell you if you haven’t been, you need to make it a goal to go and at least see the beauty of the golf course.  This week we will of course be having 1/2 price appetizers during coverage of the Masters.  We will also attempt that is a BIG IF depending on the weather for Friday night, to have a 9 hole Par 3 tournament.   Brendan will be putting this together here this week and hopefully the weather forecast improves.

We have a fun event planned for next Wednesday April 12th, representatives from Titleist and Foot Joy will be here to do a short game and ball presentation and Foot  Joy will have its new product for display.  Members and their guests are invited to come and join we will have complimentary appetizers, and a cash bar.  We have a Titleist fitting day scheduled for April 25th here at the club we will sign those of you up you are interested.  Also for those who haven’t taken advantage of the Loyalty Rewarded program (Buy 3 Get 1 Free) we can get that set up as well.  This is a free event to come to.  I encourage everyone that can be here to please be here, especially new members as this will give them an opportunity to meet new people and get our golf season off to a great start.

All the golf schedules are on the website and printed in the pro shop if you are wanting to look at them.  We have a fantastic year planned and hope that all of you play more golf this season.  Our new tee boxes will be getting sodded in the next few weeks, depending on rain, should be ready for the first of May.

Let’s all say a little prayer that the weather improves!!

 

 

Good afternoon everyone we are being punished, as I thought we would, for this mild winter by snow and cold temps in the middle of March when we should be playing golf.  Looks like this week is a scratch so we will work on some tree trimming and removal.

We are excited about ACC’s first attempt at PGA Junior League Golf, it is a fun way to compete and play team golf against other clubs.  So far we have about 14 kids signed up for the ACC PGA Junior League we will be putting a schedule together with other clubs very shortly.

Make sure you come out and enjoy all the NCAA hoops this week at the club we will have 1/2 price appetizers on tap Thursday, Friday and Saturday.  St. Patrick’s Day is also Friday night, we will have child care so please make your reservations.  Irish fare, green beer, and fun cocktail options will all be available.

Thursday night we are going to be meeting in the bar to discuss the 2017 Men’s Schedule we have a great schedule put together with new events, tweaks to existing events and we will be forming a Hole in One Pot.  1/2 price apps and hoops on Thursday night as well.
