Grand News – June Edition Unmatched conditions The rain was received well by the course and is in excellent condition. If you haven’t been out this year yet you are missing out. The course is truly beautiful. Greens are rolling great and the whole course is in amazing shape. Course Construction #8 Construction #8 is currently still closed, but we are getting very close to reopening the regular tee. Mike finished cutting the fairway last Sunday and it’s coming along very nicely. It all depends on the weather. All of us at the course, can’t wait to be able to open it so all of you can enjoy the full course. #4 Construction If you’ve been on the course, you may have noticed some dirt leading from the front greenside trap on #4 to the weeds beyond the cart path. A couple weeks ago, Mike and his staff installed new draintile under the sand trap and it has made a huge difference. The difference is truly amazing. The trap is much more playable, and drains faster by days than it had in the past. We would like to thank everyone for all their patience and understanding during this growing period of the course. Did you notice… On top of the work on #8 and #4, in an effort to continually provide our members and customers with the best conditions possible, we have added loads of new sand to our bunkers. Also, you might have noticed that we filled the pond between #3 and #5. Like I mentioned earlier, the course is in amazing shape. We look forward to hearing what you think! Friday, June 26th –Dinner starts at 5:30 – drink specials from4-7pm.Cost for a delicious fish dinner is Perch 4 pieces $11 Perch 6 pieces $13 Haddock 2 pieces $11 Haddock 3 pieces $13 Dinner includes french fries or baked potato, coleslaw, potato salad, rye bread, and homemade desserts! Annual Stroke Play Tournament Saturday, July 25th Sunday, July 26th Multiple Flights Free food and drinks After Championships Prizes for all flights Fling Sticks are available for rent and each rental includes a small bag of range balls so you can get the hang of it. FlingGolf is a great way for friends and family to enjoy the course even if not everyone is a regular golfer. It’s really easy to get the hang of and it’s a blast! See more on our website
Course Opening We’ve been open a few days already this year. The course came through the winter in amazing shape and we are hoping to take advantage of the mild spring to get golfers out on the course. We will watch the forecast, but as long as the weather cooperates we hope to be up and running full time, seven days a week on April 6th. Please check out our facebook page for the most up to date information and early season course hours, or call the course to see if we’re open. We should be open after 10 am through this Saturday before a possible cool down on Easter. Season Passes Available for Pick Up For those of you that have already purchased a season pass, your pass and CWGA card are up at the clubhouse for you to pick up at your convenience. New Member Promotion If you know of someone who might be interested in purchasing a pass or if you yourself have not purchased a season playing pass in the last 3 years we have an incredible promotion running right now that we hope will increase the number of people purchasing season passes at Grand View. You can see the details of this program on our website here Membership Promotion New Faces up at Grand View The course has a number of new hires since last fall and we are very excited about the new talent that has been added to the course. Travis Bauer is the new course general manager. Travis, the grandson of an original stockholder, grew up in Hortonville and fell in love with the game at Grand View when he was 12 years old. He currently lives in Appleton with his wife Jen, but hopes to move closer to the community. He also coaches the Brillion Lions boys golf team. Travis loves seeing people get out on the course, introducing the game to people and helping people play better to enjoy the game more. He will be introducing many new promotions linked to play this year including: weekday early bird specials, food and drinks specials, adult and child specials, the introduction of Fling Golf to the course and probably a few more along the way. In addition, on course and traditional practice area swing coaching and clinics will be offered. He looks forward to seeing all the people he already knows, meeting the ones he doesn’t and becoming a positive part of the future growth of Grand View and the surrounding community. Michael Johnson is the new course superintendent. He takes over for Jeff after his retirement. Mike grew up in Appleton and currently lives there. During his adolescence, Mike was introduced to the game by his neighbor, a Grand View member. Grand View was where he fell in love with the game and decided what a better career than doing something around the game he loved. He seized an opportunity to further his dream by managing a course in South Dakota, but when this opportunity presented itself, Mike jumped at the chance to continue his career closer to his family. He is very thankful and grateful to be given this chance to be a part of the continuing growth and success of the course and looks forward to meeting everyone. Katherine & Alyssa both received their higher education degrees and are focusing on to their full-time careers. All of us at Grand View appreciate all the great service and experiences they provided our customers. We wish them much success in their future endeavors; everyone will miss you! In addition to Andy, Colleen, Roy and Kelly returning from last year, we have added four new members to the Grand View family. Caleigh, Alanna, CJ and Grace will bring added enthusiasm to the team. You’ll see more and more of them as we approach nicer weather and we’re very excited to have them. We can’t wait for everyone to meet them and there looking forward to getting to know all of you. Follow us on Facebook If you have not already please like us on Facebook. This is where we will be putting the most up to date information about the course. It also is a very effective and free advertising tool for the course. Not only do you see the information, but if you like and share our posts all of your friends and family on Facebook see it as well. Our facebook page is https://www.facebook.com/GrandViewGolfClub give us a like! Fling Golf Something new this year that we will be introducing at Grand View is FlingGolf. We all have had that moment out on the course where we have wanted to throw the ball – now you can! It’s very similar to a lacrosse stick, except the basket is hard plastic and smaller to cradle a golf ball. Pricing is identical traditional golf and the Fling Stick can be rented for $5 and even shared by two Flingers if you choose. To get a better look at Fling Golf check out the video on our website http://grandviewgolf.club/course-info/fling-golf/ The Masters, April 9-12th We will be running a majors pool this year. How it works: Select 3 golfers for each major tournament (The Masters, U.S. Open, British Open, PGA Championship) before the first group tees off on Thursday for each tourny. You can only use a golfer one time through out the year though. So for example, if you picked Rory McIlroy, Phil Mickelson and Brandt Snedeker for the Masters tournament, you can’t select them for any of the remaining major tournaments in 2015. The goal is to accumulate the most prize money for the week and for the entire year. Entry is $10 per person and will payout winners for each individual tournament and overall yearly winners after the four tournaments are completed. Please see Travis at the course or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
