Course News January 2018
We hope everyone had a joyful Christmas and extend best wishes for a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year with much enjoyable playing time at both The Aiken Golf Club and Cedar Creek.
Feel good – play the Creek!
Huge thanks to all who contributed to the Cedar Creek employee Christmas fund. The staff and maintenance guys are truly grateful and wish you much enjoyable playing time and many good rounds at both Cedar Creek and The Aiken Golf Club.
With Gary and his staff’s excellent work the course will remain in good condition through the cold weather months. The crew is busy daily clearing and cleaning Mother Nature’s debris throughout the course. Gary will also be completing projects put off from the busy summer season.
If you haven’t renewed your membership and handicap service now is the time to do so. It is especially important that your handicap service be renewed as soon as you can possibly do it and preferably by January 10th. Annual rates were announced previously and are available at the pro shop counter. Mike D. and the pro shop staff are there to help.
The Holiday Raffle was a huge success. The drawing resulted in first prize being awarded to Jim Mitchell. Bill Setter won second and Ken Sabol third.
The grille is now closed and renovation of the members’ room for expansion of the grille and construction of the new lounge area has begun. Reopening hasn’t been determined yet. Please bear with us while the renovation is undertaken. Club members, guests and other patrons are certain to be pleased with the result.
In the meantime and in conjunction with construction of the new bar and its back face there will be a need for new lounge stools. Pledges are being accepted from club members and others for the cost of individual stools – as many as 30 – which through special arrangement and substantial discount at The Furniture Connection in Aiken is $150 each. If more than 30 pledges are attained the additional contributions will be applied toward the cost of renovation. The names of all contributors will be engraved on a commemorative plaque in the new lounge. A pledge form is located in the pro shop. If you wish to pledge please do so by the end of January. Thank you in advance!
Due to closure of the grille in January and non-availability of food and beverage service, the Men’s Golf Association will hold its annual Par 3 tournament on Saturday, February 10th. A concurrent par 3 tournament for ladies will also be held. Registration is open at the pro shop.
