Walk-By from the Pro

Ranchers,

If you didn’t watch the Masters this past weekend, you missed a great finish and breakthrough for Sergio Garcia.  We also had the privilege to host The Classic on Monday and Tuesday.  Top golf professionals and amateurs from across the state competed in windy and rainy conditions for 36 holes.  The compliments were overwhelming.  Matt Cooper won in a playoff over Jackson’s Marshall Talkington. Results of other Ranch members can be found here.

I have noticed several policy infractions over the past month.  The dress code is imperative to the culture of Spring Creek Ranch.  Members must wear collared shirts and appropriate shorts or slacks when using the facility.  Hats must be worn forward at all times.  No denim allowed on the golf course.  This includes all practice facilities!

Also, juniors that do not have a driver’s license are prohibited from using a golf cart.  This also includes driving from the south end of the practice facility to the north end.  For insurance reasons, please allow us to shuttle you to your desired destination.

This weekend, we will have a sale going on in the Golf Shop for Easter.  There will be eggs hidden around the shop for a percentage off your purchase.  You could get up to 50% off your entire purchase!

The Oak, our new stroke play event, will be held April 29th and 30th.  Tee times will start at 12:00 on Saturday and start around 9:30 on Sunday.  The entry fee is $80 and it will include lunch on Saturday.  If you have any questions, feel free to contact the Golf Shop at (901) 853-5650 or golfshop@springcreekranch.org.

We will have some information going out in the next week regarding our junior program.  Starting May 7th, we will have our first one-day clinic at 2:30-3:30.  The price will be $20 per junior and we will go over basic setup and technique.  Also, the JAM league, which is our Junior Interclub League, will start in June.  We will have more information to follow.

Next Thursday, we will have a reduced guest rates on Third Thursday.  We will also have a best ball competition available for members and their guest.  We look forward to seeing you!

The greens have been fantastic!  With the heat, the course should really start to pop.  We have moved off the mats on the south end of the driving range for Friday-Sunday.  Be sure to come out and see us!

Keep the birdies rolling,

Matthew Brock, PGA
