From the Bunkers – Week of June 7, 2021

NEW LIMERICK, Maine — Warmer weather is finally here. If you have been out on the course the past week you have likely noticed a lot of work is taking place on our bunkers.  We hope to have this project completed as soon as possible.  

You may or may not know, but due to the work in the bunkers they are considered ‘ground under repair,’ which means if your ball lands in any bunker you are allowed to pick it up and drop out of the bunker (no closer to the hole) without penalty.

 On Saturday, we held our annual Memorial Tournament. We had great weather, and an even greater turnout. The winning teams were: first place, Dalton Coney, Kody Tuttle and Matt Tuttle;   second place, Drew Marino, Sean Dolomont, Peter Stanley and Andrew Tuttle; third place, Daniel and Traci Peabody and Tony and Misty Marino. Congratulations to all the winners.

 On Monday, we saw the start of Men’s Twilight League. There were some great matches played, with some very close scores. We have 26 teams competing in three different time divisions.  Please note, while the league is having matches the course will be closed from 3-5:30 p.m. each Monday.

 Junior Golf starts Monday, June 14, with registration starting at 8 a.m. at the golf course. Classes throughout the season will be 8:30-11:30 a.m.

 Other upcoming tournaments are the Mucho Moolah 2 Person Scramble June 26 (note the date change), and the Alumni Scramble July 3.  Spots are filling up fast for these super popular events, so sign up today with the clubhouse by calling 207-532-2662.
