Walk-By from the Pro (May 5th)

Ranchers,

We haven't quite been able to shake the rain this spring.  Having this much rain can have a negative effect on the golf course.  Be sure to check with Stephen’s Agronomy Weekly on diseases and growth issues the rain can cause.

We had our inaugural stroke play event, The Oak, this past weekend.  Despite getting rained out on Sunday, we had a successful tournament.  With very tough conditions, Chad Houchin and Bill West won their respective flights.  Congratulations to both of them!

Ladies have their Member-Guest tournament, the Bayou Bling on May 17th and 18th.  The format will be four-person select-shot played on Thursday, May 18th.  There will a cocktail party on Wednesday, May 17th, after the optional practice round.  If you are interested in more details, you can email me at matthewb@springcreekranch.org.

We have our first one-day junior clinic on May 28th from 2:30 PM to 3:30 PM. We will go over basic technique and motions of the golf swing.  Preferred ages are 6 and over.  Entry will be $25 per person.  Please call the Golf Shop to sign up.

We are constantly getting new apparel in the Golf Shop.  This month, we have headwear from Pukka, shoes from Sketchers and Under Armour, and constant shipments from Peter Millar, FootJoy, and Adidas.  Adidas has started a new line, called Adipure, that was worn by Justin Rose in the Masters.  There are only eight golf clubs around the state that will carry this line.  Ours should arrive next week.  We also have some T-shirts from Levelwear arriving this month.  Be sure to come check everything out.

The Stampede, which is our popular member-member match play event, is in two weeks.  We are taking signups for the May 19th through 21st event.  The entry fee is $75 per player and will include lunch on Friday. Tee times will be Friday after lunch, Saturday all day, and Sunday morning.  We will play 36 holes for those that move through. If you are interested in playing or have questions, please contact the Golf Shop at 853-5650.

If you haven’t already gotten the SCR app, it could be most beneficial.  Information regarding daily course conditions, daily food specials, and up-to-date postings are spread through the app.  If you need assistance, contact our Communications Manager, Jason Williams.

Keep the birdies rolling,

Matthew Brock
