Dear Members,

Now that the up and down weather is behind us, it's time for us to take a look into the season ahead. This week started off the league year and it did so in style. Our women got it started in the morning with a Bingo Bango Bongo game and our men played later that day in the opening scramble. Both leagues battled the cold weather for an epic day of golf followed by our raw bar. As cold as it was, we had a great turnout with 24 participants in our men's opening night scramble, which was a great start to the year.

As most of you have heard, Ryan Reynolds has moved on to the David Leadbetter Golf Academy. We would like to wish him nothing but the best with his future endeavors. Our search committee has been engaged in interviews over the past couple weeks and will have a new head golf professional in place here shortly. As we go through the transition, Ryan's merchandise will remain in the shop. Do not forget to come by and spend your shop credit on Ryan's merchandise as he still has plenty of merchandise in the shop so get it while it lasts! As Ryan's merchandise is going out, we will still have new product rolling in regularly so come on in and check it out. 

With the season now under way, we would like to inform you of some events that will be taking place over the next couple of months. 

  • Wednesday Fun League starts Wednesday, May 4th. The tee is reserved from 4-6 pm for our ladies. We will be having our free ladies clinics weekly at 5 pm. 

  • Free Guest Day - our first free guest day will be May 5th, and will continue on the first Thursday of every month. This year we are taking tee times so don't forget to all ahead! 

  • Polar Bear - coming up on May 7th, we are expecting great weather so get your team in before it's too late. This is a fun event to get the year started off. We will have a breakfast buffet, followed by a day of golf, games, prizes and raffles. 

  • Twilight Golf - our first event takes place May 27th at 6:30 pm. It's 70's night so come dressed in your best 70's outfits! 

  • Memorial Day Shotgun - this event will take place on Monday, May 30th. We are taking sign-ups for this event at this time so please let us know as this event fills up fast.

  • PGA Jr. League - the schedule has not been finalized and will be sent out shortly so please be on the lookout for that. 

We look forward to a great 2016 season and cannot wait to see you and your family out enjoying all that Gull Lake Country Club has to offer.
