Storm Ellen hit hard last Wednesday night causing damage to our course. Due to this damage which included fallen trees, coupled with the heavy volume of rain that fell, our course was closed on Thursday and Friday last week. We also experienced a power outage which resulted in the clubhouse being closed on Thursday and Friday morning. Thank you to our course staff and especially to all our members who came out to help with the big clean up. Our members prove time and time again that they are dedicated to helping out whenever they are needed. This is much appreciated and valued.
