Ron's Crier Article March 2023
Gassed Up for Golf
Ron and the team have prepared a great 2023 golf season.
I hope by the time you read this article, the snow is gone, and we are playing golf again! We have been closed for over 90 days this winter, so hopefully we will be playing “outside” golf soon.
I hope everyone had a chance to spend some time on the simulators. February 26th was the last day. To date we have had over 267 different members use the simulators, in addition to 52 guests. It is a fun and educational experience, I am glad so many of you had the chance to experience them.
Included in this month’s crier is the 2023 Golf Calendar. There have been some great additions, make sure to look and plan your season accordingly. Also included is our golf instruction program for 2023. I have included both the adult and junior instruction program. Call the golf shop to get started on a program to help you improve your game.
Before you know it, summer will be here, and we will be starting our summer junior golf program. You will be able to retrieve the program information via the website in March. I will also add it to e-news with a link that takes you to the summer program information.
Speaking of junior golf, we are about to get started with the process of signing up for another PGA Jr. League season. PGA Jr. League is a national program for kids ages 9 to 13 that involves team golf. We have run the program the last six years, and it is tremendously popular. To be involved in this program, juniors must be able to play nine holes walking and be able to handle their golf clubs. Priority will be given to returning players. We will continue to field four teams, and our teams will again be involved in a league with Hillcrest and SpurWing, so our kids will get to continue to travel to those other clubs this year. For more information or if you have questions, please contact Luke at the golf shop.
In March, the Rocky Mountain Section PGA will begin the 2023 Pro-Am season. The events get started early, with the following events scheduled for March and April:
March 6th Clear Lake (Buhl) Pro-Am
March 13th Rivers Edge (Burley) Pro-Am
March 20th Centennial Pro-Am
March 27th Canyon Springs (Twin Falls) Pro-Am
March 30th Spurwing Pro-Ladies
April 10th Twin Falls GC Pro-Am
April 17th RMSPGA Scholarship Pro-Am (Hillcrest)
April 24th Blue Lakes (Twin Falls) Pro-Am
April 28th Jerome Pro-Ladies
Member call-in to sign up for these events is two weeks in advance. Make sure to sign up and get your golf season kicked-off early!!
Don’t forget that we have an online golf shop as well. The online golf shop offers product lines that may not be offered in our golf shop, with the option of putting a crane creek logo on the product or not and being able to take advantage of member pricing on these products. The golf shop is accessible through the golf area on the Crane Creek website. Crane Creek members will work with the online retailer directly and pay using a credit card. All products offered (men’s, women’s and junior apparel, golf bags, glassware, and golf bags just to name a few of the products) will be priced at retail, less a 20% discount for Crane Creek Members. Be sure to check it out!
I know a lot of you travel south for the winter, some for the entire winter, some to get away for a short time. Remember, all scores shot in areas that are in the golf season (Arizona, Palm Springs, Hawaii, Florida, etc.) can and should be posted to your posting record in GHIN. Once we start posting scores in Idaho (March 1st), those scores posted over the winter will register and will be considered for the first revision of 2023. Speaking of playing golf down south, Crane Creek member Dick Copsey shot a great round of 75 early this winter at Pinnacle Peak Country Club in Scottsdale. More significantly, Dick accomplished one of the most difficult things to do in golf – he shot his age! I don’t know by how much, because Dick did not share his age with me, he just assured me he did in fact shoot his age. Congratulations Dick!
Looking forward to a great spring golf season!
See you on the course!
