The Bemidji Town & Country Club
October 2001

    The pro-shop will remain open this fall until the course closes, tentatively set for Sunday, October 21. Please remember to use any gift certificates by that date and to remove your clubs from club storage if you haven't already done so. The driving range will close on October 14. We should see some nice fall days so don't put the clubs away just yet.
    Have a great winter and we will look forward to seeing everyone again next spring!

    We had two divisions in our Annual Season Long Best Ball tournament. The two-man teams Kevin Krigbaum-Chase Jackson and Bob Strand-Paul Welle captured their respective divisions.
    We had 64 ladies participate in Ladies' League this past summer. We hope you all had an enjoyable season. If you have any suggestions on how to improve play for next year, please contact one of the current board members: Jeanette Halcrow, Diane Baer, Carolyn Dondelinger, Annette Theroux and Pam Johnson. We would like to extend our thanks to the past board members for all their hard work in making Ladies' League so successful-Betty Douglas, Mara lee Mayer, Kathy Gardner and Donna Macius.

    We are reducing our green fees for the remainder of the season to $20.00 for 18 holes weekdays and $25.00 for 18 holes weekends. Golf carts have also been reduced to $10.00 per rider. Our "Play with a Member" rate is still in effect. This rate is $15.00 for 18 holes on weekdays and play must be with a member.
    Greetings from the Clubhouse:
    Fall is upon us and it looks like we have some cooler weather in store for us. The season is winding down, what a great year! Our new clubhouse is something we should all be proud of.
    October still looks to be busy with three weddings and two private parties. What a great way to end an outstanding year.
    The halfway house is closed for the season but the beverage cart will be available each day weather permitting.
    Something to look forward to is our 1st Annual "Members Only New Year's Eve Party" on the 31st of December. Look for details to follow soon.
    Remember we will be hosting Christmas parties during the month of December. Any one interested in any information can call me at the clubhouse. There are a few dates available so call soon.
See you in the Clubhouse,
Gretchen Fjerstad
