FROM THE PROSHOP
We are NOW taking tee times for June 2014! When will winter finally end? Reviewing opening dates for the past 5 years we have come to one conclusion, there is NO consistency as to when the golf course opens. We set a record for the earliest open in 2012, and then set another record last year for the latest opening date. On average BTCC opens for golf between April 14-20, let's hope we are close to average this year! The heat is on in the pro shop and we expect to receive many deliveries over the next two weeks. If anyone has questions on golf clubs or would like to make sure that new item is here before the start of the season, stop by, call, or send an email. I will announce regular shop hours when we are closer to opening the practice range. Now is a great time to have your grips replaced, stop in and check out the options for 2014, we will be running specials through the end of April.

GUESS THE OPENING DATE?
All individuals who correctly guess the opening day for golf 2014 will be entered into a drawing and are eligible to receive a $50 gift card at BTCC. Two ways to enter; go to Facebook, https://www.facebook.com/pages/Bemidji-Town-Country-Club/373382938225?ref=hl , or email me at rick@bemidjigolf.com. Entries will close Tuesday, April 1st. Only one entry allowed per person.

"OPENING STAG"
Men's Opening Stag is scheduled for May 1st. Remember, for this day we will take tee time reservations two weeks in advance rather than the normal one week. Phone lines and pro shop will open at 8:00am Thursday April 17th.
