Annual Letter to Golf Members: 2016

Dear Members and Friends:

2016 has arrived and winter has been very kind to us thus far! Let's all hope for an early spring, which of course means an early golf season!

As you will read below, many of the new and exciting strategies implemented last season have been carried over to 2016 - plus, we have added a couple other new offers to continue to make this a spectacular place to be a golf member! And based on feedback from our 2015 Member's Survey, the ownership group of the St. Marys Golf & Country Club has committed to making positive changes to the golf course to continue to improve your golfing experience. At the FREE Member's Dinner & Update on April 1st, we will share these updates and changes for the 2016 golf season, with a focus on the following:

  1. Sand Trap Improvements (long-term plan),
  2. Par 3 Tee-block adjustments,
  3. Golf Cart Improvements,
  4. New Divot Jug program,
  5. Facility Improvements, and
  6. Monthly Golf Calendar

Also new for 2016, when you sign up for your 2016 golf membership before or on the Early Bird Membership Drive on March 5th, 2016, you will receive a FREE SMGCC-logo'd water bottle or beer glass (in addition to the already awesome offers)!

This fun golf league will begin July 4th and run one day a week for 8 weeks throughout the summer. Skill level is not a concern and junior golfers ages 7 to 18 are welcome. Each girl or boy will be placed on a team, with the chance to win fun, weekly prizes!

Juniors who want to play in this league only (10 weeks)
