How good do you want to get playing golf?
I have a great new 30-day golf program that combines the best of instruction, coaching, training, and extensive access to the pro - me! I'm offering this special to 8 people only, and it is VERY reasonably priced. We'll meet 4 days a week, and 1 to 2 times a day for an hour each. It includes range balls during the sessions, a schedule of what we'll be working on with 2 topics each session, and a 2-hour on-course coaching session each week. Tuesday through Friday at 11 am and 5 pm. Imagine spreading out your instruction, combining training with it, and getting immediate performance feedback... It's called the Get Golf Ready G P S Cross Training program. You WILL be better in a month! Let me know you are interested and we'll put it together. There are 5 spots left. The program will start April 11....
From the (Super) Superintendent
Operating through an unusually wet winter, the golf course faired very well. Throughout most of the winter, the golf carts stayed on the fairways and the course was very playable.
Spring at Emerald Valley has a lot in store for our golf course! During the winter months, we completed paving the road to the private back range practice area and installed an electronic gate. Only our participating members and the Oregon Ducks have access to this premier practice facility. Membership has benefits!
Another exciting project opening soon is the addition of a 5th set of tees! To achieve this, we added 10 new low profile tee blocks that will allow for the addition of green tees playing 5437 yards. Many people are calling these the senior tees and will fit in between the white and red tees. To accommodate these new yardages, the red tee yardage will be shortened slightly from 5176 to 4915 yards and the white tee yardage from 6199 to 6143. If a player selects the proper set of tees to play the game, enjoyment and the pace of play will be better.
Don’t forget to fix your ball mark and somebody else’s too.
Happy Golfing from your Golf Course Superintendent
