AT THE PRO SHOP

Ryder Cup Members’ Golf Tournament on the weekend of February 8 & 9 was lots of fun! The Red and the Blue Teams competed for honors and gift certificates with the Blue Team winning. The weather was perfect and our members had a great time.

 

NEW MERCHANDISE

New merchandise has arrived. We love the new line named Turtleson which offers menswear in beautiful colorations and fabrics. It seems very popular! You will like it! Cutter & Buck Spring apparel is being showcased. Color ranges are very stylish! It includes ladies’ and men’s apparel. Ladies will notice the great looking Raincaper Ponchos. They are reversible and feature patterns from famous artists as they are sold in art museum shops. Very nice and special!

We feature Srixon Cabretta gloves so our remaining Titleist gloves are on a special sale with a limited supply. Jamie Sadock men’s shirts are here as well as lots of new Jamie for ladies. Exciting patterns. We are also carrying 7 Diamond shirts for men. They are an athletic fit and you can leave them untucked. Very attractive patterns.

 

WILDLIFE

Our future Mama Sand Crane is now nesting in the pond at the 18th tee box. Thank you, Patricia Miller, for the images.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

GOLFISMS!


These greens are so fast I have to hold my putter over the ball and hit it with the shadow.

~ Sam Snead

 

I was three over — One over a house, one over a patio, and one over a swimming pool.
~ George Brett

Actually, the only time I ever took out a one-iron was to kill a tarantula. And I took a 7 to do that.
~ Jim Murray

 

The only sure rule in golf is – he who has the fastest cart never has to play the bad lie.
~ Mickey Mantle

 

I don’t fear death, but I sure don’t like those three-footers for par.
~ Chi Chi Rodriguez

 

After all these years, it’s still embarrassing for me to play on the American golf tour. Like the time I asked my caddie for a sand wedge, and he came back ten minutes later with a ham on rye.
~ Chi Chi Rodriguez

 

The ball retriever is not long enough to get my putter out of the tree.
~ Brian Weis

 

Swing hard in case you hit it.
~ Dan Marino

 

My favorite shots are the practice swing and the conceded putt. The rest can never be mastered.
~ Lord Robertson

 

Give me golf clubs, fresh air, and a beautiful partner, and you can keep the clubs and the fresh air.
~ Jack Benny

There is no similarity between golf and putting; they are two different games, one played in the air, and the other on the ground.
~ Ben Hogan

Professional golf is the only sport where, if you win 20% of the time, you’re the best.
~ Jack Nicklaus

 

The uglier a man’s legs are, the better he plays golf. It’s almost a law.
~ HG Wells

 

I never pray on a golf course. Actually, the Lord answers my prayers everywhere except on the course.
~ Billy Graham

If you watch a game, it’s fun. If you play at it, it’s recreation. If you work at it, it’s golf.
~ Bob Hope

 

While playing golf today, I hit two good balls when I stepped on a rake.
~ Henny Youngman

If you think it’s hard to meet new people, try picking up the wrong golf ball.
~ Jack Lemmon

You can make a lot of money in this game. Just ask my ex-wives. Both of them are so rich that neither of their husbands work.
~ Lee Trevino

 

I’m not saying my golf game went bad, but if I grew tomatoes, they’d come up sliced.
~ Lee Trevino
