Bemidji Town & Country Club Online Newsletter - 04/15/13

Spring cannot get here fast enough. Our collective memory from last season is making the delay seem worse. I have been in the golf shop for the last month cleaning and preparing for the start of the season. New deliveries have been arriving daily and the shop is beginning to take shape. 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 2013.

The proshop will see some staffing changes this year. Wade Farbo has been offered an opportunity from his winter club 'The Hideway', in La Quinta, CA and will be working at 'The Yellowstone Club' in Montana. Wade spent two seasons here at BTCC and we all wish him well. Mitchell Mackedanz will return as first assistant, he is currently in Naples, FL at 'Royal Poinciana Golf Club' and will be back in Minnesota next week. We are all looking forward to a great golf season.

I would like to introduce the membership at Bemidji Town & CC to our new Office Manager, Jenny Centko. Jenny and her husband moved to the Bemidji area last fall and we are fortunate enough to have her join our team. Please stop and introduce yourselves when the golf course opens.

Men's Opening Stag has been rescheduled for May 16th. 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 May 2nd.
