A Wee Bit of News
Tips, Specials, Updates and the latests in golf news from the team at Majestic Hills GC
I realized I missed a week of bringing you all the exciting news and information that I share with you all. I hope you all missed it too!!
The past couple weeks were filled with events, tournaments and specials in the Pro Shop. I hope all of you found your way to at least one of them. I know some of you did, because we sold a bunch of clubs, bags and shirts. Thank you to all who have been so supportive of the activities, sales and changes that have been shared this season and especially this past month. (Psst! It is not too late to get a new shirt as the prices are still great for the June special, for a few more days)
The 4th of July is just around the bend and our traditional tournaments are happening again this year. Sign up sheets are up on the board and filling up too. Sign up to play in the 3 man scramble or the 2-couple alternate shot tournament OR heck maybe even sign up for BOTH and make it a full day of golf.
The course continues to dry up and even with the occasional rain showers we are getting, it is still a hard year for us. We are conserving water as best as we can and any help you can do by sharing carts, using the cart paths etc. helps. Thanks. Someone told me that if you could be like Joe Clark and just hit it a long way and only 35 times each nine, the fairways and greens get so much less wear. Let's all try to do that okay!
The Pro, Mike Latimer, is back this weekend giving lessons. If you see him, say hello. He may still have an opening if you are interested. For those who have had a lesson, stop by and let me know how it went. I would love your feedback. He wants to continue to offer lessons here and I hope we can make it a regular part of the Majestic Hills services.
The BIG day is nearly here. The Cattlemen arrive on Monday the 28th. The course will be closed for the day, and actually be closed after 5 pm on Sunday night so Tim and his crew can get it all mowed by Monday morning for the 8am tee off.
250 players begin showing up at 6:30am and finish up dinner upstairs a little after 8pm. It is a big day for the club and we very much appreciate the Cattlemen for bringing their group here each year. If any of you want to volunteer to come help, you are welcome. A couple volunteer Marshals to drive around the course and keep the groups moving, carts on cart paths and promote the hospitality on behalf of the entire club would be one way. Cleaning up the carts and getting them secured after the round is over around 5-7 pm would be another. There are other ways too, if you are interested let me know.
We are almost through June and lots of good stuff coming in July; like the Club Championship and The Fishbowl, but hey, that is for another newsletter.
