Time to tee it up! After getting snowed out of our intended opening weekend, Mother Nature allowed us to open on Monday the 19th. The state has allowed us to resume normal play, which includes (among other things) 2 players per cart. While we understand the pluses of having your own, it’s a negative for our club, as we ran out of carts some days, and saw a significant increase in gas and maintenance expenses. We also have practice greens on holes 7 and 16. Rodney and the crew want to make sure these greens are in top playable condition going forward. The important thing is – we are playing golf again!
In other news, we are extremely pleased to welcome Kyle Gates as our new Pro Shop Manager. Kyle comes to us from Arizona State’s golf management program and knows the game inside and out. There is no question that we wanted to improve our tournament management and boost our commercial presence in the pro shop, and we believe Kyle not only fits this bill but will style points while he’s at it. Please introduce yourself when you come in!
We are just as pleased to announce that we have taken on Jim Remy as Advisor to the Board of Trustees. Among many other career highlights and accomplishments, Jim is a Past President of the PGA of America, and served as General Manager and Sr Vice President of Okemo Valley Golf Club from 1997 to 2018. This of course means that he worked closely with our new Superintendent, Rodney Williams, who held that position at Okemo for 22 years. We are excited to see the influence of this relationship on our playing conditions. Jim will also work closely with Kyle on all aspects of tournament management.
Finally, Crown Point Pub will open for business on Wednesday, April 21st. Spring hours will be 11-5 Wednesday and Sunday, and 11-8 on Thursdays and Fridays. As we announced earlier, our new Pub Manager is Nina Bisciotti, who has been hard at work with the rest of the staff to prepare for the open. Another new member of the Crown Point family!
See you on the course and in the clubhouse!
