From the Bunkers – Week of September 12, 2018

My oh my, what a great week for playing golf. The course was quiet without events this week, but if you came out to play it was your private course. And here’s something to get excited about. If you pay for your membership for 2019, you will get to play for the rest of 2018. And if you are not a member now, you receive the same offer as members. This is taking advantage of the best weather and course conditions for 2018. Call the proshop for more info at 532-2662.
