Pro Shop News
The Pro Shop opened Tuesday, March 15th @ 8:30 for the 2016 Golf Season. We will be open 7 days a week and remain open daily until 5:00 or last MCC cart is off the course, if later. We have a new layout in the Pro Shop and more room for the morning coffee group. New merchandise including the Callaway XR16 and Under Armour clothing will begin arriving at this time. Check out the 2016 golf calendar, and make plans to make our Callaway demo/fitting day on Friday, May 6th.
At this time you may drop off your clubs for the free club storage and cleaning that is included in your golf membership. The Driving Range is also free for all golfing members and will open when the ground dries up enough and the grounds crew can begin mowing tees. This is an indication the grass is growing and can replenish itself.
Please check with the Pro Shop prior to taking golf carts off the cart paths. Signs will be on the 1st and 10th tee, along with contacting the Pro Shop. Season cart passes are available at this time for the 2016 calendar year. If you plan to play more golf this season, give serious consideration to a cart pass. You will play more and even come out to practice a few holes when you have time.
