Play with the Pro

In an effort to have the professional staff get out and enjoy golf with the membership we have started a new program called "Play with the Pro". How the program works is if you would like to play with one of the pro's you visit the golf shop and let one of the staff know you would like to sign up. At that time you let them know which pro you would like to play with and a couple of days and times that would work best for you. The professional staff will be checking the sign up sheets every other day and contact the members involved once a day and time has been agreed upon. The staff who will be taking part in this are Ryan La Rose, Ray McCourquodale, Kevan Goble, Charlie Doherty and Brendon Allman. We look forward to getting out with a number of you over the next few months!
