DIVOTS Nov. 1, 2017 From the Pro Kim Griggs, PGA November is the true beginning of our season. It is has been great seeing all the snow birds coming back!! The golf course is starting to fill up again and that is nice to see. With that in mind, please be aware of your pace of play. If you are slower group, please do not hesitate to let others play through. Remember our player assistants are only doing their job out on the golf course, please be courteous and listen to their instruction. Fairway & Tee Box Divot Repair Please fill your divots in the fairway & on tee boxes with the sand and seed mix provided. DO NOT fill in divots in the rough. Please fix your ball mark on the greens!!! Fix yours and two more, and this will help keep our greens in great shape.

The Pro Shop & Driving Range will close on Thanksgiving at 2:00 PM so that our staff can enjoy Thanksgiving with their families. Enjoy your Thanksgiving Dinner in the restaurant, or enjoy it with your family!!

Bunker Etiquette The question of where to put the rake (in or out of the bunker) has always been an issue. The PGA recommends that you leave the handle of the rake outside the bunker, and the rake part inside the bunker. This will make it easier for the next person to use the rake. Also, PLEASE enter every bunker from the lowest side (not the steep side). After hitting your sand shot, PLEASE rake and smooth all foot prints and uneven areas for the next person. No one likes to hit out of a foot print or indentation. If we ALL follow these simple rules, I would appreciate it. Checking In When checking in for golf, we now have a cash register (point of sale) at both registers. This should make check in a little faster for everyone Also, it is VERY important that we receive the correct names of the people playing in each group as soon as possible. Making Tee Times Please remember that when you are checking in for a shotgun, it is very busy, so we will ask you to fill out a form for a tee time request and leave it on the pro shop counter. After we send out the shotgun, we will be more than happy to take care of your request. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
