Ladies Division
Attention Ladies - Even though we are not "organized", it's still fun to have a little competition and some fun games. Lets try to have a good turn out on Wednesday between 8:00 and 10:00. Since we are a small group, there might be some "non-ladies" dispersed between our groups. A good turn out would eliminate this.

The Pro Shop has graciously volunteered to set up our games again this year. You can make up your own foursomes. This would begin on Wed. May 31st.

Also the Monday morning group would welcome anyone to show up by 9:00. Groups and the game will then be set and we will tee off shortly after. We will start this group on June 5th.

From The Clubhouse
Greetings from the clubhouse!
This weekend we begin serving breakfast and will be serving Saturday, Sunday and Monday (Memorial Day). Hours for serving are 8 am till 12pm. We will serve breakfast each weekend through Labor Day.

Sunday, June 18th we will not serve off our regular breakfast menu as we will be celebrating Father's Day with a brunch. Seating will be from 10 am until 1pm. Make plans to join us for Fathers Day! Reservations can be made by calling 751-4535 or by email at

Please make plans to join us this Friday for the Wine & Cheese Party. We will be sampling our Whispering Peaks house wines and offering specials on our entire wine list. Light hors d' oeuvres will be served from 5:30 - 7:30. Plan to stay for dinner as we will have many great specials to choose from. Order a bottle of wine with your meal and pay half price. Hope you can join us for a great member event.

An update on the course services: the half way house is open each day and the beverage cart will be available on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. The beverage cart will be parked on the ninth tee box and will not be driving around the course this year. When we have tournaments we do plan to have the beverage cart driving the course.

See you in the clubhouse!
