Thanks for checking in with Walk-By by the Pro. We have several happenings to report over the last couple of weeks and some information going forward.
We had a very successful week for the Tennessee Mid-Amateur, which we were able to host a couple of weeks ago. The praise and compliments for the golf course were overwhelming.
We also had several members who were successful for the week. Members who made the cut were John Fisher, Ben Fisher, Josh Coley, Buzz Fly, Dr. Gary Simpson and Matt Mitchell. Buzz Fly and Josh Coley finished in the top 10, while the champion was Memphis-native Matt Cooper.
If you didn’t read, Buzz Fly also finished in the top 10 at the Canadian Men’s Senior Championship. Great representation of Spring Creek Ranch on all fronts.
The Nicklaus Cup (Senior Club Championship) results
Last week, John Fisher held off Dr. Gary Simpson to win his second Nicklaus Cup in three years. Fisher trailed the first round leader, Dr. Simpson, by 1, before playing a very solid round of 70 to capture the title. Doug Haefer shot 66-72 to win the Net Division. Congratulations to you both!
El Encierro (Men's Member-Member)
This weekend, we have our men's member-member tournament. There will be a shotgun start at 9 am on Saturday and 1 pm on Sunday. There will be Gross and Net Divisions with large payouts in both. The entry fee is $75 per person with lunch on Saturday and appetizers at the completion of play on Sunday. We already have 34 players signed up. So get a partner and let us sign you up. The deadline to register will be Friday (9/22) at noon.
Couples' Club Championship
Next Saturday, September 30th, we have the Couples' Championship. The tournament will be a 1 pm shotgun with dining following play. This is a best ball format using a minimum number of scores from each couple. Please call the Golf Shop to sign up.
Golf Shop Sale
Football season is in full effect and fall is right upon us. This weekend, we are having an end-of-summer sale. Select shorts and shirts will be discounted up to 50% off. If you are looking for that fall attire, we have new merchandise coming in daily. Even if you are not playing this weekend, be sure to come by to see what deals you can score.
