What an enchanting beginning of summer with camps in full tilt, a successful Men’s Invitational and plenty of activities and events to follow. I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Dennie Kane and his partner Kevin Vandenberg for winning the golf tournament in the 2018 Men’s Invitational.
The Boat Bar is in full swing with the patio open, and a new food & drink menu to accompany it. Three wonderful suggestions to join us for dining (besides any other night) would be Wednesday evenings down at the Pavilion for Wet & Wild Wednesday & 1/2 priced bottles of wine, Thursday’s Burger & Brew Night, or Sunday evenings with a select menu & casual dining in the Boat Bar! This can be a perfect way for you to enjoy different dining venues around the Club.
A few things worth highlighting for you; the annual 4th of July cookout on the beachfront, a great opportunity to get family & friends together to celebrate, make memories, and watch the beautiful fireworks display. GLCC will also be hosting Twilight Golf, Luau night on July 27th and “Glow Ball- Big Hole” on August 31st. It is always fun to see the awesome costumes that members wear for the themed Twilight Golf nights, and I personally cannot wait to see the Luau costumes. Last but not least, I would like to mention that Hully Gully is approaching us on Saturday, August 4th this year. 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 these events can be taken in the office. I’m looking forward to continuing a wonderful summer here at the Club!
In wrapping up my article, I would like to take the time to recognize and thank Mike Rossen for his 16 years of service at Gull Lake Country Club. His loyalty, spirit and great morale are buzzwords likely to be associated with Mike. In addition to his skills, he has a rare sense of ownership in his approach to anything involving GLCC. He has the uncanny ability of always being where the action is, and had a finger on our Club’s pulse. His dedication to his craft and natural exuberance has made this an easy paragraph to write.
Mike, thank you for truly being a wonderful mentor, boss and friend. I truly appreciate everything you have done for me and Gull Lake Country Club in my past 14 years here. You will be sorely missed.
