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.
