Month: April 2017

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!!
