The GM Weighs in on the 2012 Season at Heritage Shores Club
This year’s weather has provided great opportunities to play golf. January and February have both been warmer that average. With this we have been able to accomplish a few extra tasks on the golf course. Dave Clem and the Golf Maintenance Staff have had their hands full with replacing bunker sand on the green side bunkers. We have chosen to start with the green side bunkers due to the playability and need to get the club deeper into the sand from the green side versus wanting a slightly harder surface in the fairway bunkers to allow for longer distance shots. Additionally, we will be aiming to aerate our greens earlier than usual, by mid-March. While this will take a little longer for the greens to heal, it will provide a better playing surface through our peak season.
More exciting news to announce in the Golf Shop, our Golf Professionals are creating some new and exciting golf social events that will include skill challenges and address pace of play. A few items that I recommend you ask the Golf Shop Staff about: Membership events, Children’s summer “camps” and our “Caddie for a day” promotion.
In the Food and Beverage and Banquet and Catering departments we continue to push new ideas and events while supporting the originals. Beat the Winter Blues was back this year as was the Super Bowl Party, we tried a new Oscar night party, added a band to our St. Patty’s day party, a beer tasting from 16 mile, an upgraded concert series and are reintroducing cooking classes. Promotions in the Restaurant have increased as well and have continued to entertain our Thursday promotions which will stay our Pasta Buffet through March, selections change on a weekly basis. We have a busy 2012 in the Banquet and Catering department, but always appreciate referrals. If you know of anyone looking to host a party or a business event please have them call the club and ask for Stefanie.
I look forward to seeing everyone at the Club soon!
