What a beautiful fall thus far, the course was able to heal from the aerification extremely fast thanks to the beautiful stretch of weather we had in September! The greens are looking fantastic and will stay that way for some great fall golf. If you have not had the chance to see the completed tee project yet I suggest you head out and look at the beautiful transformation that has taken place over the past few months. The new bentgrass on the tees is coming in beautifully and over the next few weeks the maintenance crew will begin to mow and roll the new tees on a regular basis. During this time it is extremely important that we stay off of all of the new tees, they will not be ready to play until next season. I know they look great and everyone wants to get the first few swings in on the new surfaces, but it is really important that we allow the turf to mature as much as possible before we introduce play.
If you have not made your way to the golf shop recently, be sure to come by! We have some new pieces from Greg Norman, Polo and Graeme McDowell's line G-Mac. The new Titleist woods and hybrids are being released any day now, I will be receiving the new fitting cart this fall too, a new custom fit Titleist driver makes a great gift! Taylor Made, Ping and Callaway all have introduced new lines of clubs over the past few weeks and we will start to see the walls of the shop filled with the new gear as soon as it is received! Lots of great holiday ideas for holiday gifts at the shop this fall and if you have something in mind that we do not have in the shop, just ask and we can get it for you!
On behalf of the entire golf staff we would like to thank the entire membership for a great 2014. We had so much fun running all of the great events at the club, from Jr. Golf, to Twilight Golf to the Holiday events. We had a blast with everyone! We look forward to a great 2015 golf season, the committees are hard at work creating the events calendar for 2015 so be sure to stay tuned! Once again I thank everyone for the great support that I receive year after year at GLCC. None of this would be possible without a great supportive membership like the one we have at Gull Lake.
