The Professional Staff and I love producing a golfing experience that provides you, your family, and your guests, an enjoyment with lasting memories. Events such as last month’s Masters Par 3 Tournament, is a great example of how your clubs’ fellowship and camaraderie is rising to the forefront of the Golf Operation. Eighty players participated in last month’s event, along with a wide range of demographics participating; a Golf Professionals dream!
With the sun rising in the sky, the Outer Banks weather is turning for the good and so is our Couples Golf. Couples Golf has become one of the most popular events to participate at the club for golfing activities. It is not unusual to foresee close to 50 players each Sunday, due to the rapid increase in popularity.
For 2021, the format is focusing on teaming up couples in a Captains Choice event. Captains Choice is when all players tee off, and the team selects the best shot. This format is continued until the ball is holed; for all 9-holes. This is a great way to play in an extremely relaxed atmosphere, plus the post-round festivities that congregate around the fire pit.
The Golf Committee and I highly encourage all players to kindly fill in their divots with the sand provided in the carts, or if you walk, Sand Bottles are provided at the start of both nines. Players who warm up or just practice on the Long-Range Practice Facility, are also asked to fill in their divots with the sand provided. As golfers, proper etiquette is to fill in your divots and fix your ball marks.
We hope to see you around the club soon.
