Golf News

Typically, I would have just returned from attending the annual PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, Florida. This year, due to COVID, the event was held virtually. Although seeing the event virtually and not in person was a little different; the show still provided a great learning experience both for the education classes and seeing new products. Later this month, I will be attending the Merchandisers of the Year conference, virtually, and I am really excited to learn from all of my talented colleagues across the country. More importantly, bringing new and exciting products and programs for our members here at Duck Woods Country Club.

I would like to invite you and your favorite partner on Saturday, February 13th for a 9-hole event; Valentine me Stableford. The format is a team Alternate Shot Format using NET Stableford Points. Each team will have a calculated team handicap and score off of their NET Score. Complete details are listed in the Golf Shop.

In just one month, the annual March Madness 4 Corner Tournament (Saturday, March 13) will be held. This tournament has quickly become a flagship event. Grab your friends, build your team (or we will pair you), and play 18-holes with pins tucked in the hardest corner of each green. Enjoy lightning fast greens and see what your team can shoot in a captain’s choice format. No handicap required (guests are welcome) and all teams will be post-flighted (once scores are in, teams will be placed in flights (everyone has a chance to place). Complete event details will be announced in a couple of weeks.

As always, we hope to see you around the club. Sincerely,
Aaron Palen, PGA Head Golf Professional
