Wow! What a summer it has been so far! So many fun and exciting events taking place here at Gull Lake Country Club. The Spring Columbo Cup, one of our favorite events of the year, was won by the team of Jason Ryan & Sam Eyde! We had the largest turnout we have ever had for the Memorial Day shotgun! A big thanks goes out to Gregg Pierce for chairing the event! Mr. Jason Harloff and his guests were the winners with a record score! The Men’s Invitational had a record number of teams sign up this year! 44 teams competing in head to head competition! The shootout this year was especially dramatic with the event having to go extra holes. Finally, after an incredible iron shot, Jeff O’Brien and his brother Tony O’Brien were crowned winners of the event! Tournament participation has been incredible so far this year! Lets keep the trend going!
We also have a few hole in ones to report: Mrs. Barbara Parish and Dr. John Luchsinger both had hole in ones on #4. Congratulations!
Junior golf camps are going in full force. Hopefully we begin to see all of the junior golfers out on the course this summer. Don’t forget to stop by the golf shop to check out the new Puma Jr. Golf gear!
The tournament schedule still has plenty of excitement remaining. Twilight golf returns to Gull Lake for the summer. The last Friday of each Month, we will be having a 9 hole scramble event for couples beginning with a 6:30pm shotgun start. July 4th brings us the Stars and Stripes event: 7:30am breakfast, 8:30am shotgun start. This is always a fun event! The Women’s Member Guest is July 24th & 25th. This year we have a fiesta theme! It will be a great event so let’s set a record with the Women’s Member guest! Sign your team up today.
Before we know it August will be here, which we’ll kick off with Women’s Pink Day. This event has a 9am shotgun start. The always-popular Centennial Cup (Ryder Cup format) is taking place on Saturday August 3rd and 4th and then we have the summer concluding with club championship the week of August 13th -18th!
If you haven’t already, be sure to come by the golf shop and get fit for a new driver using the launch monitor technology! The Shop has just received new shipments of Peter Millar and Adidas clothing for both men and women!
We look forward to seeing everyone out at the golf course for the remainder of the season!
