Hello again members. Well, we are off and running for another season. So far it is going well. We have been able to pay off our line of credit and we actually have some money in the bank. That is excellent for this early in the year. Compared to most golf clubs in the State of Minnesota, we are in good financial condition. Many clubs are in very tough times with no great improvement on the horizon for them. The problem seems to be too many courses and not enough golfers. Many courses that are being built today are mere excuses for real estate development and not primarily for golf.

I believe that by the end of May we will have a better picture of our overall situation this year. I feel confident that if all goes well, we can seriously consider going forward with some significant improvement projects.

On a more personal note, my game is still a mystery. Unfortunately, my clubs do remember me from last year and they are making me pay. I am very pleased with the condition of the course and I notice fewer unrepaired balls marks and divots. Thanks to everyone who is courteous enough to take care of this kind of damage. Please feel free to contact myself or any board member if you have concerns or comments. Of course, Paul is always available as well. As a reminder to everyone, there is a reward of $50 for "new" members that you bring to the club. Make sure to let the proshop know if a new member is one you brought to join us.

Let's tee 'em up and play.
