Walk-By from the Pro


Things are starting to happen at the Ranch!  This weekend looks to be blue skies, sunshine, nice temperatures, and even a little green grass.  The Golf Shop has even got a little color as the spring apparel has been coming in daily. 

We have new shoes from Nike, FootJoy and Adidas, along with apparel from Donald Ross, Adidas, Turtleson and Peter Millar.  We have golf bags from Ping, Titleist, and Sun Mountain that will grace the Golf Shop.  We also have the Titleist Loyalty Rewarded Program, where for every three-dozen custom golf balls you purchase, you will receive one dozen free.  So come on by and let us get you geared up for the new season.

We had a very successful Polar Bear Classic, a member-guest couples event, last Saturday.  It was a tight tournament where the Stanleys, Rich and Jodi, along with their guests, Mary Virginia Horne and Billy Payne edged out the Williamsons, Cindy and Larry, who played with the Haefers, Doug and Kris.  Congratulations to all of the tournament winners!

For those of you that don’t typically play during the winter, spring can be rather frustrating when it comes to your golf game.  If you have aspirations of improving this year, it’s imperative to practice and play the right way. Most of you, like me, only have limited time to fit in golf.  When you do get a chance, it is important to utilize that time wisely. 

When practicing, commit to improving by practicing with a purpose.  It is not enough to mindlessly hit golf balls.  Create a routine and scenarios that would replicate shots that you may have on the golf course.  Our Gauntlet is a great way to drive focus that will improve the short game when you do have a chance to play.  Feel free to contact our professional staff on how to get more out of your golf game.

This month, we have a couple of events to mark on the calendar.  This weekend, we have the Junior Club Championship/Junior Member-Guest.

We have the Advanced Ladies Clinic on March 23.  Greg King and myself can help knock off some winter rust with some insightful tips to improve your game.  The Ladies Opening Day and Luncheon will be held on March 30th.

The Southern Cup qualifier, which is held at Chenal Country Club from April 21st through the 23rd, will be March 25th.  We will start sign-ups next week.  Tee times will begin sometime after lunch.  If you have any questions about upcoming tournaments, please call the golf shop.  Also, information, not only about tournaments, but daily happenings, can be found on the SCR app.

Just a reminder, the Bull and the Bear signup will be March 26th at 7:00 am.  We will be constantly sending out information on how to sign up.

See you this weekend and as always keep the birdies rolling,

Matthew Brock, PGA
