Summer afternoon—summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.”
What an enchanting beginning of summer with camps in full tilt, a successful Men’s Invitational, and plenty more activities and events to follow. I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Joe and Steve Splendorio for winning the golf tournament in the 2017 Men’s Invitational.
The Boat Bar is in full swing with the patio open, and new food with a new signature drink menu to accompany it. For your summer dining pleasure, I would highly recommend Wednesday evenings down at the pavilion for Wet and Wild and half priced bottles of wine, Thursday for Burger & Brew Night or Sunday evenings in the Boat Bar for a select menu and casual dining.
Here are a few of our many summer events. The annual 4th of July cookout is on the beachfront and it is a great opportunity to get family and friends together to celebrate, make memories, and watch the beautiful fireworks display! GLCC will also be hosting Twilight golf “Star Wars” night on July 28th and “glow ball big hole” on August 25th. It is always fun to see the awesome costumes that members wear for the themed Twilight Nights, and I personally cannot wait to see the Star Wars costumes! Another fun event to plan on is the Wine & Tapas that we will be hosting on Thursday, July 20th. We will have Marc Stephenson from 20 Hectare & Mark Pollack from Great Lakes as our wine representatives and we will be selling wine at 10% over cost. It is never to early to purchase wine for gifts around the holidays in my opinion. Last but not least, I would like to mention the Hully Gully is on August 12th. Many members came out to join us last year and I am keeping my fingers crossed that many of you will be joining us again. Reservations for any of the events I have mentioned can be taken in the office. I’m looking forward to continuing a wonderful summer here at the Club!
