November brings cooler weather and a change in the amount of daylight. Starting November 1st, the Golf Shop will now be open Tuesday through Friday from 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM. On weekends, the shop will be open from 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM. The Golf Shop will be closed on Mondays and also on Thanksgiving Day.
The Driving Range is officially closed for the year. We will also stop posting scores for the season on November 1st for rounds played in the north. Those players traveling south are still expected to post all rounds played at locations still considered “in-season.”
Greens fees and guest rules are now at off-season prices and policies. This truly makes Edgewood the best deal in town. Bring your friends, your relatives, or your co-workers out for a round to showcase your country club. Also for those of you with Advanced Purchase Guest Fees or Guest Fees from the 10/18 project remaining, just a reminder, these do expire on December 31, 2017. Any passes not used by that date will be lost.
Once again, we are asking members to make tee times for the off season months. Tee times will still be required on Tuesday through Sunday. You will be able to book weekday times two weeks in advance and weekend times on Tuesday evening at 6:30 PM. Pending good weather, we will still keep the weekend SWATS going through November as well. The weather has been great in November the past several years. There are still plenty of golf rounds to be played.
I wanted to congratulate several recently crowned Champions. Mike Roman and Rich Walsh won our Men’s Year Long Four Ball Championship. Paul Ajak III won our Gus Andreone Cup. John Vikara was crowned our E.C. Brown Champion. Also congratulations to Mike Anderson who was our Donald Ross Cup Winner. Like the Fed Ex Cup on the PGA Tour, the Donald Ross Cup allows players to accumulate points in every event of the season. Winning the Donald Ross Cup requires consistent and stellar play for the entire season.
All of the new fall merchandise is available in the golf shop. Holiday sales start up November 1st. Don’t miss these great opportunities including the popular Buy 2, Get 1 FREE promotion! New lines from Levelwear, Peter Millar, and Straight Down have recently arrived. The Holidays are fast approaching. It is never too early to begin shopping!!! As always, gift wrapping at Edgewood is done free of charge for anything purchased in the golf shop. Plus there are no lines to wait in unlike your favorite stores at the mall.
Have a great month and see you at the club.
