Men's Champ The Vandersluis Memorial is only two weeks away. Remember, this event is for players of ALL abilities. Divisions include Men's Championship, Sr. Men's Championship, Men's Flights, Sr. Men's Flights and Ladies Flights. The entry fee for members is only $50 and this includes a Sunday Night dinner along with prizes. For more information visit our website at

We also need volunteer help on the scoreboard. If you are interested contact either Rick or Paul in the proshop.

As the days get shorter the project list gets shorter. The main project of the year which of course was the practice facility is completed. The seed is in the ground so look for the grass to start showing here soon. The whole project went extremely well and I want to Thank Eric Niskanen and Tom Johanns for all their hard work. The range will re-open sometime next Spring.

One of the projects that will be pushed back is cart path repair. The reason for this is two fold. One was the cost factor and the second was the damage that the course would have sustained to get the heavy equipment out to the cart paths that need repair. The Committee is still looking at doing this project in the future since there are problem areas.

Things that will happen are the replacement of the bridge between 15 green and 16 tee. This will take place after Labor Day. The tree program will start this Fall and I will be talking about that in more detail when it starts.

Last, The committee will be looking at creating/leveling tee boxes on the course. As always any comments or ideas feel free to e-mail me at

Please remember to replace all divots and fix all ball marks on the greens.
