September 2017


Are you tired of using your umbrella yet?  I know I definitely am at this point.  What a wet and crazy summer it has been! 

We spoke about the Ladies Club Champions last month.  In August all of our Men’s and Mixed Champions were crowned.  I wanted to congratulate all of them this month   I had the opportunity to be out on the course watching a lot of the action unfold.  All of our champions worked hard and deserve the praise they receive. 

Paul Ajak III won the Men’s Gross Club Championship for the 2nd straight year and John Gregg won the Net Club Championship.  Alex Smith was our Overall Junior Club Champion.  Our Men’s August Invitational was held and Nino Fusca and his guest Scott Sosso were crowned our champions of that event.  Our Ladies Invitational will be held in late August and I will provide the results in the October Ecco.

Other Junior Golf Champions included Regan Logan and Reilly Woehler winning the 9 hole divisions, Parker Baird and Reese Solomon winning the 6 hole divisions, Claire Elder winning the 3 holer group, and Henry Harrison and Aurelia Solomon winning our one holer divisions.

In our Husband-Wife Championship, I wanted to congratulate Sam and Randi Lichtenstein for winning the gross division and also the team of Chris Werder and Debbie Gibson for winning the net division.  Finally Chris Stockhausen and Karyn Fife were the victors in the Couples Division.

Our Annual Men’s Super Stag will take place on Friday, September 15th.   It is a 27 hole one day Member Guest.  The sign up sheet is posted in the Men’s Locker Room.    Don’t miss out on the action.  Sign up for this great event today.

If you are like many players including myself, September is a personal favorite time of year to play a round of golf.  The climate is ideal and nature provides a great background to come out and make some swings.

With the amount of daylight changing, so does our first tee time on weekends and certain hours of operation.  Starting after Labor Day, the first tee time on weekends will be 7:30 AM.  Weekend SWATS will now begin at 9:30 AM.  The first time on weekdays will stay at 8:00 AM. 

During the upcoming month we will be doing our fall aeration on the Golf Course.  The fairway aeration will be done on September 20th – 21st.  Greens aeration will take place September 26th – 28th.  During those days, the entire golf course and driving range are closed. The Golf Shop hours will be 9:00 AM – 6:00 PM during aeration.

Finally, the fall season is here.  Make sure to check out the latest lines of Men’s and Ladies’ clothing in the golf shop.  These lines include shirts and pullovers from Cutter and Buck, Polo, Peter Millar, and Straight Down.  Plus we will have an extensive amount of brand new upstart company Level Wear which is doing things with our logo you have never seen before!

Have a great month and see you at the club!!!
