September 16th, 2013
We are now approaching the end of a year, and it has been very positive. This Newsletter will provide information about the upcoming fall season.
Upcoming events that we would like to promote are:
- September 20st: Glow Golf
- September 28th: Fall Scramble
- October 28th: Goat track
Having Elvis perform at the Clubhouse has been such a hit this year and last that we have already booked him for next year and he is going to bring Roy Orbison along. There will be two shows back to back next September 12 and 13.
We tried Glow Golf last year and it was a blast. Come out and try your hand at playing during the September solstice and first full moon of September. Glow balls and paraphernalia are provided with your fee. Dinner is included with your fee as well.
We have come up with our new rates for the 2014 season along with some good incentives to get people to join before October 31, 2013. Those who do join early will save $150 off the 2014 Membership rate. Please see the rate sheet at the bottom of the letter. Any existing member who brings in a new member will save an additional $150 off their Membership rates. Also, we will give anyone who joins early two free $18 hole passes.
The owner of the golf course, Dennis Hong, has decided to purchase two High Definition golf simulators for the clubhouse in the off season. We plan to be open all winter to provide this service. It is a great opportunity to keep your game limber through the off season. These simulators have been purchased from Legends golf which closed its doors earlier this year. Anyone who has had the opportunity to try the simulators at Legends knows that these simulators are top of line and provide a very realistic golf experience. One of the simulators can provide a golf swing analysis. This is an exceptional tool which can greatly improve your game. You can see your swing in action and have an analysis coach provide you with real time instruction. I tried it earlier this year and I was quite impressed. It is a great instructional tool. You can view the product at hdgolf.com
Through the months of July, August and now into September we have been accepting non-perishable food items for the food bank in return for a reduced green fee. There was a great response from the community and we were able to raise more than 1500 pounds of food for those in need.
Brett has been busy this year growing our facebook page. We now have over 1600 followers. This is a great medium to offer specials, share pictures of events, get input from members and guests and inform people about upcoming events. Hopefully we can continue to grow this format which is a great way to connect with a growing golfing community.
Next year we will be introducing flex cards for members and the public. They are free of charge. All you have to do is put any amount of money on the card (Just like you would with a gift card) and anytime it is used you will save 10% on all our products and services. It can not be used with any other specials or promotions though.
We would like to remind our members that they have a 14 day booking privilege. Please take advantage of this to beat the rush from the public. Also, another privilege we would like to remind our members about is the Member Guest green fee rate, which is the same as twilight but the rate is good all day.
Here is our promotion for attracting new members. As you can see existing members are getting the same deal if they are able to join before October 31, 2013
