Wow, what an interesting way to start off 2017! Crazy weather and folksgolfing in their shorts in January and February! It has been great to see everyone out on the golf course and enjoying the club these past few weeks! The early warm weather has been welcomed by all and we can only hope it will continue in the coming months.
The board has approved two projects this year that you might see some work on in and around the club. On the golf course we will be addressing the drainage in a few bunkers and leveling the sand in every bunker to approximately 3.5 inches. These changes will hopefully help make the bunkers more consistent and increase the playability. On the lake side, they are already hard at work strengthening our boat slips to ensure a more stable experience for everyone that swims and is boating in and out of the Club.
The 2017 Family Fun Guide will be mailed in the next few weeks! This guide will include details within every department of all events and programming activities that the club offers on an annual basis. This is a great tool for you and your family to use when planning out your summer and various activities so you are able to enjoy all the club has to offer!
This year we are offering a 12-month trial membership program for prospective members. Please let us know of anyone who may be interested in a membership and we can provide them with the necessary information regarding Gull Lake Country Club.
Congratulations to Jesse, the Ground and Facilities Manager, as he recently received an award for “Best Twitter Feed” (@GLCCTurf) by Golf Course Industry Magazine this past month at the Golf Industry Show. Jesse’s twitter feed provides a great resource for a behind the scenes look at all the hard work it takes to keep the golf course in fantastic shape. Woo-hoo, way to go Jesse!
As always, we would like to send out a big thank you to all our members who continue to make this club a fun and vibrant community, and to the fantastic staff at the Club that keeps it all running smooth. We’re looking forward to the coming months and what will hopefully be the best spring season yet!
Get out there and have some fun, people!!!
