Gary and his crew remain hard as work with winter course chores. Much underbrush has been removed and clearing of trees particularly in the areas of the 15th green and 16th tee has improved the look of the course. Installation of hole posts and markers at the tees is on the agenda and bunkers will be replenished with sand in coming weeks. Course equipment refurbishment is well complete in preparation for the growing season ahead. January has not been kind weather-wise which has impeded morning work not to mention play, but it can only get better!
Feel good – play the Creek!
The devotion, support and generosity of both members and others of the club are evident once again in the call for pledges to purchase new lounge stools. The opportunity to pledge will remain open for a few days longer at the pro shop.
If you haven’t renewed your handicap service for 2018 now is the time to do so. Those who haven’t at the end of January will be placed in an inactive status. The pro shop staff will be happy to assist.
A major event deemed the “High School Invitational” will be held at The Aiken Golf Club and Cedar Creek on March 23-25. As many as 100 high school golfers will converge on The Aiken Golf Club on the 23rd with the second and third rounds at Cedar Creek on the 24th and 25th. Please note there will be no morning tee times available on Friday, the 23rd, at Aiken and on Saturday and Sunday at Cedar Creek.
A Community Scramble is scheduled for St. Patrick’s Day (March 17th) at the Creek. Open to the first 100 golfers play will begin with a shotgun start at 9 a.m. Mark your calendars …..and wear your green!
Looking to the future, Masters week occurs the first full week of April. Promoting guest play at the Creek as well as The Aiken Golf Club benefits us all. If you know out-of-town golfers coming to the CSRA to enjoy the Masters invite them to play both the Creek and TAGC.
