Bemidji Town & Country Club Online Newsletter - 07/25/04

All of you know that our 80th Annual Birchmont gets underway tomorrow. We currently have 260 players registered and are looking for another great event. We invite you to stop out and watch the action. Results are also posted daily on our website at

The golf course will be closed for outside play until next Sunday, but the clubhouse is open daily for breakfast (starting at 6:30 am), lunch and dinner. The clubhouse is closed Tuesday night for dining because of the fish fry for contestants.

The red water hazard stakes that were to the left of #16 and #17 fairways have been removed. If you cannot find your ball to the left of these two holes you must play the ball as lost (stroke and distance). The hazard in front of and around #17 green remains. The reason for doing this is:
  1) There is no water in this area; therefore it should not be played as a hazard.
  2) Because players are not sure where their ball entered the hazard they often take improper drops; drops that make their next shot the easiest.

Seasonal cart riders are reminded that their seasonal rental is for a seat on the cart; not for the entire cart. We see a lot of multiple carts in a group with only one rider on each cart. All riders must pair up. We also see people that have not paid for cart rental "jumping" on the vacant seat during part of the round. The Board of Directors has instructed the proshop staff to charge cart rental to any person that is riding a cart. Thanks for your cooperation.

All Callaway metal woods have now been marked down.
