The Winds of Change
Oh, the winds of change. I’m just referring to the weather – not making any profound historical reference.
But the change in weather from last March to this March is profound. In fact the change from last week is amazing – last Wednesday was below zero.
Normal opening day for us is April 6. So anything before that is a bonus. Do we want a big bonus? Of course – but not at the expense of the golf course. So, we’re planning on openingTuesday, March 24. That’s still two weeks ahead of schedule. Hurrah!
What do we have new for this year? I’m so glad you asked. Over the years the green on #9 has been settling toward the water on the right. So, last fall we rebuilt the area surrounding the green on the right and the back. We also removed some trees to give the green much needed sunlight. It’s a much better hole – still a challenge – but not unfair.
We’ve also added a new menu called “At the Turn”. So after you hit your tee shot on hole #10, you can come in and pick up your food – a tasty selection of brats, dogs, and sandwiches – and not slow down play … the best of all worlds.
Also, we are offering complimentary lemonade and iced tea next to the Culligan water dispenser in the Pub. You can even make your own version of an Arnie Palmer. And also look for some new very cool items on the menu and the tap beer selection.
Probably not all of you saw the new Power Tee driving range that we added last fall. This is my kind of practice/warm-up … no more bending down to tee-up the ball … it just does it itself. Golf is strenuous enough.
Not only has the weather changed (and for the better) … but so has Deer Run GC.
See you soon,
