Divots Jan 1, 2017 From the Pro Kim GriGGs, PGa haPPy new year! We hope everyone has a safe, healthy & and Happy 2017. thanK yoU On behalf of my staff and me, I would like to extend a very sincere thank you to everyone who dropped us a card or goodies this Christmas Season. Pace oF Play I have received several questions lately about what is expected of players as far as “pace of play” on our golf course. First of all, our new 9 hole time frame is 2 hours and 5 minutes. It is very important that you keep up with the group in front of you. Also, remember that there will be twosomes, threesomes and foursomes on the course and also golfers only playing 9 holes. Gaps will occur because of this; however they should tighten up as long as everyone is playing within the allotted time. Please listen to the Rangers when they ask you to pick up the pace, pick up your ball or skip a hole as they are only doing their job. Hitting in to the group in front of you and or yelling at them will not be tolerated. leaGUe Play Men’s 18 Hole Club

When you go to the driving range, practice green or chipping area; you should always practice like you would play. For exampleâ€Ś Make a fairway in your mind on the driving range and see how many times you can hit that fairway. When you are chipping, have an imaginary circle (3 feet or so) and see how many times you can get your ball that close.
