At the end of this month, Saturday, May 27th, the swimming pool will be open. I am sure the swimming pool will be in great condition for Memorial Day weekend and will be open through Labor Day weekend. Please review the swimming pool rules and have fun in the pool under the sun.

The Easter Open was a big success. There were sixteen teams and the Easter baskets were outstanding as usual. Richard and Beth Webber should be applauded for taking care of the Easter Open. Harold and Tineka Parrott took excellent care of the players during the Easter Open.
I want to thank Larry McBride for checking out and taking of a few maintenance issues with the clubhouse. Please give Larry a thank you when you see him.
I received a message from Bonnie Hill the other day, asking me to put in the newsletter. The 14th Tee Box has a new look. Several members helped with the project. Bonnie couldn’t have done it without Kenny and Elaine Stewart, Vicki Nigh and Patsy Beatty. Rodney Hunter also removed the old landscaping stones and made the turnaround smaller. Also, Steve Hills for placing and leveling the new stone and the statue. Bonnie and I hope that all of the long ball hitters enjoy the new look. Please give a thank you to everyone who helps in the project, including Bonnie Hills.
As you may know by now, the price of can and bottle beer has gone up 25 cents. The House Committee compared prices at other establishments in our area and found the new prices are the cheapest. The board approved the increase and the club will be getting half of increase after taxes are paid. The board will earmark this new source revenue toward the cost or part of the cost for top-dressing the greens on a regular basis.
On Sunday May 7th after 11:00 AM, the restaurant will be closed but the bar will be open. Nancy Williams will be tending the bar through the afternoon. Tineka and Harold’s daughter is graduating from Sherwood High School.
If you haven’t paid for your handicap service, $20.00, please do so. You can pay it by joining one of the golf associations or just pay for the service. Once it has been paid and you submitted enough scores, your handicap will be calculated and you will be given a GHIN (Golf Handicap Index Number). A handicap will help with setting you up in tournament play. If you have any questions, talk to Rodney Hunter, Carol Phillips and/or me.
The board has been advertising our club on Facebook, our website, in Kayo newspaper and to golfers in the KC metro area through KC Metro Golf. If you see a few unfamiliar faces on the course or in the clubhouse, please say hello and welcome them. Each member should try to promote new membership whenever we can. The cost for memberships is posted in the pro shop and is also available on the website, including membership application. So again, please welcome those unfamiliar faces. If you have an idea to promote membership, please let me or any board member know about it.
