Notes From St. Croix Country Club

Course Will Open This Friday with Reduced April Rates

I hope everyone has recovered from watching the Masters and can’t wait to go make some golf history of your own! Patrick is putting the flags in on Friday April 26, and finally the golf season will officially begin. We will offer a reduced greens fee during the month of April, so it’s a great way to get out a friend or family member that’s interested in taking up the game without the normal crowds around. 

Every few weeks I like to remind our members of up-coming events going on at the club. First, the Opening Dinner is on May 4th at 6 pm for social hour and dinner to follow at 7 pm. Those interested, please call the pro shop so we can get an accurate head count for the cook. Plus, some lucky member will leave with a free membership for the 2014 season! 

We already have 8 teams signed up for the Club Fundraiser 4-Person Scramble on the 18th of May, so don’t wait too long before signing up. This Scramble has 1 shotgun start at 10 am, so the entire field will start and finish at the same time. The money generated from this year’s fundraiser will be going towards more tee improvements and upgrading our hazard bridge crossings. 

I’ve also been taking many calls for mens’’ Twi-Lite already. I will be posting the official sign-up sheet the beginning of May on the bulletin board outside the pro shop. Also, any ladies interested in ladies’ Twi-Lite, don’t hesitate to call the shop and we’ll get you on that list. Speaking of ladies, the first ladies “game improvement clinic” will be held on May 11th at 11:00 am, and then three more clinic dates to follow. 

Also, I would like to remind everyone of the club’s pro shop credit policy. Any member having credit on the books must cash in their credits before June 1st or the money is cleared from the books....never, ever to return! It disappears like magic! Seriously though, if you’re not sure of the status of your account, please call the pro shop and I’ll let you know. I have great prices on last year’s stock....up to 50% on some items until May, so hurry in and check it out.

Finally, the Spring Work Party will be on Sat. April 27th from 9 am to 12 pm. I know this is short notice, but we really would appreciate the help. Aerating and rolling tees, and work on the new practice green cart park area is on the work list so far.
