Welcome New Golf Members KEM JACKSON, LOCC OFFICE MANAGER There have been a few members that have asked to have their own login for the memberonly side of our website to make tee times. Exciting news! I can now set up a member number and have it linked to the master account for those family members. Please email me at kem@logc.org if you want like to have a separate login for tee times.

Our staff is ready to make your favorite cocktail and serve you a wonderful meal. So call and make a reservation and enjoy a night out. You deserve it!

Wine of the Month ERATH PINOT NOIR

This unique wine is from the Willamette Valley, Oregon area. It’s a place where EARTH and HEART intersect. Erath winery’s founder, Dick Erath, was driven by the belief that the future of Pinot Noir was in Oregon. Today Erath’s wines are an expression of the land that the winery has cultivated for more than 40 years. It’s the best Pinot Noir the region has to offer. Erath Pinot Noir offers strong and pleasing aromas of red cherry, licorice, mint and a bit of woodsy/ earthy note. It’s considered a medium-bodied wine that tastes super smooth and is full of juicy raspberry, strawberry and cherry fruit with just a touch of spice and vanilla. It pairs nicely with poultry dishes, medium cheeses, fish, beef, as well as pasta dishes.

During the holidays, stop by the Argyle and sip and glass of this flavorful wine.

From the LOCC Golf Club Committee

Where would we be without GOLF in this strange COVID-19 world? The coronavirus outbreak in early 2020 rattled our day-to-day like nothing else in our lifetime. Businesses of all kinds, including the golf industry, were put on their heels. A study by the National Golf Foundation (NGF) revealed that in April only 44% of golf courses nationwide remained open (Lakewood Oaks fortunate to be one of them). Since that April stumble, participation in golf has BOOMED at an accelerating rate. Here’s just a few statistics courtesy of the NGF: • More than 98% of golf courses are open. • Here in the Midwest, October rounds played were up 47.2% versus 2019. • There are now HALF A MILLION more junior golfers than a year ago. • US golf equipment sales in Q3 jumped 42%… highest since impact of Tiger’s ‘08 US Open win. • The number of 9-hole rounds are up 15% as folks find time to squeeze in a short loop. • Only ONE STATE has seen a decline in rounds played this year - Hawaii, for obvious reasons. So, as we pause this time of year to give thanks for all the blessings in our lives, lets add a very strange 2020 “thank you” to GOLF as it’s helped to keep us active, sane and connected with all of our relationships at Lakewood. Also, there is a great jump in our very own golf membership, which is very pleasing. On that topic, please stay vigilant in taking care of our course by fixing ball marks, cleaning your cart after your round, picking your tees, etc. As the saying, “It takes a village to raise a child”, could refer to the care of our course. As always, reach out to your Golf Committee with viewpoints or topics of interest. Happy Holidays from your Golf Committee. – Jim Lysinger Val Young, Scott Wall, Donna Round and Chris Johns
