The temperatures may be cooling down, but the golf season is still hot. We have lots of events left to finish out the season including Labor Day, The Player’s Cup, Tour Championship Better Ball, and Closing Day.
Our newest event to be added to the calendar is the CO-ED “MIXED” INVITATIONAL. It has taken the place of the September Stag and is open to all members and their guests. Teams may be all men, all ladies, couples, mixed, or any combination. It is build like the stag which is all inclusive. $75 per member, $95 per guests and includes golf, cart, prizes, lunch before golf, a strolling feast and beer tasting after golf. Please call to hold your spots as spaces will be limited. Chef Duane has been creating pairing with Jordan and the rest of the Culinary crew. The food is sure to please and Jordan’s knowledge of craft beers is extremely fun and educational.
The Lone Pine Cup Matches will be finishing up over the next month and I want to remind everyone to stop in and pay your entry fee if you have not done so. If you are not sure, we have the list of everyone who has paid.
Labor Day is the last point event of the 2015 season before the Players Cup. We will be playing a best 3 of 4 at 100% handicap at 9:00am on Monday September 7th. You may make your own foursome, but if you do not have a team, sign up as an individual and we will be glad to help pair you with a team.
You should definitely be aware of the calendar for this month, as we do have some events which will cause some closings and course restrictions.
September 10 we will be hosting the ACCA outing which will not close the course, but it will cause some tee restrictions as we go through the day.
September 11 is the Lone Pine Bandits party. If you are part of the bandits and have not signed up, please contact Frank Dobbin to get on the list. 9:00 Shotgun and lunch to follow golf.
September 13 we will be hosting the Elks which will close the course until approximately 3:30.
September 16 we will be hosting the Tri-State PGA for the Assistant’s Championship. The course will not be closed, but we are asking that you call in for tee times to help everyone enjoy their rounds.
As we see things begin to wind down, you will see some specials being offered in the shop. Currently we have Titleist perma-soft and Callaway tour gloves available at 2 for $35 or 3 for $45 (you may mix and match the two brands and sizes).
We are also working on our merchandise mix for 2016 and I am very excited to say we will see some changes for next year. Some new brands and styles which mean we will be eliminating some of the regular staples from our current mix. We will still have accounts with all of the brands enabling us to do special orders.
I look forward to seeing you all at the club.
JR Pond, PGA
