Still accepting membership applications and working on the golf season calendar, Douglas says they are opening the season with a big tournament, Sears’ “hole-in-one” $10,000 shoot-out.

“This is the best you get in golf” Douglas in reference to this opening tournament, which is to take place on Sunday, May 15.

“For this tournament, we are turning all nine holes to “par 3”s and everybody will get to shoot.”

“We will accept 72 entries for this tournament, let them go and let’s see if they can win,” said Douglas.

Regular leagues will start this week with ladies playing on Tuesdays, men on Wednesdays.

Seniors are also playing on Thursdays.
