Just a quick reminder that today is the last day to sign up and pay for the Men’s club championship this Saturday and Sunday, late entries will NOT be accepted. So if you wish to play please make your way into the clubhouse prior to closing today!! Also please keep an eye on the men’s day blog and Facebook for what we are doing with men’s night with all this rain, as most likely the course will be extremely wet and carts could be a struggle.

What a whirl wind July, I still cant believe that it is August already!! July saw many things happen at the course with the start of our Jr. Program, Our Men’s Invitational, Sr Club Championship and even a Wedding. Congratulations to Craig Swartzentruber on winning the Sr. Club, and to Spencer and Tressa on your Wedding, Thank you so much for choosing the Muni to host your special day. We have also seen the opening of our new driving range tee and hitting mats, and the slow growth of the lawn bowling green ( I don’t recommend trying to grow grass in July when its 40 and not raining) but it is slowing coming along.

August brings more events to the Muni and I thought I better send out a reminder of these dates. Our Jr. Program will see 3 more dates till its completion date on Monday Aug 27th. Please remember that this Monday Aug 6th there will not be a Jr. Day due to the Holiday. Our Men’s and Ladies Club Championships will take place in August with details and sign up sheets on info board in clubhouse, along with another 9 and dine social night.

I hope to see lots of people out at these events, and here’s to hoping August doesn’t fly by like July.

Hello Everyone

Just a quick announcement that the lawn bowling and range tee construction is now complete, please remain off the area though as we continue to get the sod and seed to catch. It shouldn’t be long now though until we are hitting from our new tee deck!!! The range will remain closed this coming week on Monday and Tuesday as we extend the range netting at the back of the range. We apologize for the inconvenience but we need the added netting because of all you long ball hitters and with the range tee now being moved forward.

Our Auction  Scramble this Saturday has been canceled due to lack of interest, but we are still going to hold a 2 man scramble for the players who signed up starting at 11am!! So still come on out and enjoy some Saturday afternoon golf.

Lastly don’t forget about our Friday night social on June 29th, golf is available from 4pm to 6pm and dinner will be a chicken dinner catered by Black Angus. Cost is $20 per person and sign up deadline is Wednesday June 27th.

Dates to Remember

Hello Everyone

Construction is still well underway around The Muni but projects are starting to round into shape nicely. Our new concrete entrance way is now complete, looking good and usable, and the Lawn Bowling / Practice Range tee should see completion within a week. Thank you everyone for putting up with these inconveniences while we continue to improve our course.

We do have a couple upcoming events and I just wanted to send a quick reminder out about them. This Saturday is our Auction Scramble and at the moment we still need lots of players to sign up for this to run. Sign up deadline is this Wednesday night and I will be making the decision Thursday morning on whether the event will be a go or not.

We will also be hosting a social night of golf and dinner on Friday June 29th, anyone is welcome to sign up for this fun relaxed night at The Muni. Sign up sheet on information board in Clubhouse.

Lastly it is getting close to our annual Men’s invitational on Saturday July 7th. Fliers are posted around the clubhouse for this great day with a steak dinner and full prize table. * Sign up sheet at counter* Also make sure to check out the great deal offered my Mitchell golf club for Muni members who wish to play in their invite on Friday July 6th!!!

Hello Everyone

I don’t even know where to start with the amount that is going on around the course these days!! As most of you have seen the lawn bowling construction is well underway, along with the construction of our new Driving range tee. I do apologize for the shortened range at the time or very full parking lot of machines and dirt etc. but when this is all done we will have a greatly improved facility. We also saw a huge Tent up this past weekend for our former worker Dori Nelson and member Joey Hishons wedding, Congratulations you two on your amazing day and thank you for choosing the Muni to host your special day!! Lastly on the construction front you will notice that this week we have started to remove and replace our asphalt entrance, it had become an eye sore over the years with ruts down the sides etc. Our new 10 foot wide concrete entrance will give us a fresh new look or first impression to guests along with being double wide so cart traffic can go both ways without leaving the paths. Again I apologize for any inconvenience while this is being installed but we will have to us the main entrance till this is complete.

Our Jr. League team tryouts began last night from 4:30 to 6:30pm and we will have 2 more remaining practices on Monday June 18th and Monday June 25th before the team is selected and event dates start in July!! We encourage anyone who wishes to participate on the team to attend these dates.

Lastly our events board in clubhouse is filling up please make sure to check it for event details, sign up sheets etc. We currently have our Auction Scramble, and Men’s invitational coming up very quick, along with our weekly men’s and ladies leagues and Weekly Sr. Games.

Hello Everyone

I hope everyone enjoyed their long weekend and has been able to keep up to their lawns and the grass that doesn’t want to stop growing. We have been working non stop to try and catch up to our rough and this week I think we have finally been able to catch up… With the long weekend now over and the season well on it’s way there are just a few things starting at the course that I thought I would send out reminders for.

Our Huron-Perth Jr. League Golf Team Tryouts will begin Monday June 11th from 4:30pm till 6:30pm, and is open for any Jr. members boy or girl, age 11 to 16 who wish to try out and make our team that travels to 5 other courses for 9 hole events. It is a great introduction to Tournament golf, and team members receive matching uniforms and weekly coaching.

Our Driving range will also soon be going under some more construction as the lawn bowling green will start to be built at the beginning of next week. I apologize for any inconvenience this brings, but in the end we will have a much better practice facility with a new tee elevated tee deck with grass and matted hitting areas. For the time being well the cleared out back section grows in we will be moving to irons only, I hope this doesn’t last long though and that we are back to hitting the big sticks as fast as possible.

Lastly our Sr. Games have now began and will take place every Thursday morning at 9am, A schedule can be found at the Pro shop counter with the weekly games and a sign up sheet on the information board.

Hello Everyone

This week saw the true start to the golf season, with the weather finally cooperating we were able to get things cut, get carts out on the course and also open up the Driving range. It also was the start of our Men’s and Ladies Leagues and the support was unreal, both nights the parking lot was packed with Tuesday having over 50 ladies play and our Wednesday Men’s league having 120 players join this season. (for anyone looking to find the men’s day stats or the weekly blog, it can be found at www.golfscoring.net/stratfordmuni or on the website under the Leagues header and Men’s League with a clickable link at bottom of page)

Our Members Opening Scramble is this Saturday at 11am with a Lasagna and Caesar salad meal to follow. Thank you to everyone who has signed up and paid by the Wednesday deadline. We have a good number of members signed up to enjoy the day, and we are hoping for nothing but warm sunny skies. If Saturday for some reason happens to be bad weather and we can’t play, (which is highly unlikely) we will still be holding the meal at 3:30pm and encourage you to still come out socialize and enjoy the clubhouse.

Dates to Remembers:

 

Saturday May 12th- 11am- Members Club opening scramble

Saturday May 26th- 11am- Army Navy Opening (sign up at Army Navy)

Till next time.
