This month on the golf course we will be working on items from our winter project list. With the guidance of the Club President and the Greens and Grounds Committee, we have developed a prioritized list of projects that we are able to get done in the winter months.
Well, we made it through another summer and are ready for the fall and the cooler temperatures. We hope everyone has been enjoying the course. We have been busy keeping it in the best shape possible for our members.
They include out-of-section or out-of-state rounds. They include match play rounds. (If you’re conceded a putt and it’s improbable you would have made it, add a stroke. They include rounds played with spouses, children and small animals tagging along. They include rainy rounds and sunny ones. You can wear a swimsuit and slippers and it still counts. As long as you’re playing the Rules of Golf, i.e., not playing 2 balls.
In response to the recent Executive Order from Governor Kemp enacting a statewide shelter in place order through April 30th, we are currently planning for a pool opening, but do not have a specific date as of now.
Since golf is a fresh air game, we are happy that we have been able to remain open during the COVID-19 crisis. We value your safety and health as more important than anything else and the following guidelines are in place to protect all members and our staff.
We hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas and are looking forward to a great 2020. We are very excited about the upcoming year and we can’t wait to provide you with the best playing conditions around.
Golf’s governing bodies in 2020 will roll out a new handicapping system that changes the ways in which golfers can compare themselves against other players, allowing for the first time an apples-to-apples system in which handicaps more easily can travel around the world.
