Limekiln GC 2019 Season–Member Notes; February, 2019
It’s time to start thinking about the 2019 golf season at Limekiln GC. One of these years, we’re going to have a winter golf season again, but I fear we’ll be long gone before it happens again. Back in the early 1990’s, it was commonplace to have over 2000 plays in February. Now, we’re lucky if we have 200 plays. Maybe the Groundhog will be right this year, and we’ll see golfers before April 1st.
The opening weekend this season is Saturday, April 6th, and Sunday, April 7th. Our weekend starting times will begin then. We will have a season opening tournament, the week before, on Sunday, March 31st. The time and format will be sent out in early March.
Masters weekend is the second weekend in April, 4/13 and 4/14. We will run our Masters Pro Member Tournament on that weekend. Also, the GAP Team Matches begin on that weekend on Sunday, April 14th.. We will again have two teams entered in the GAP Matches. Tim will captain Team #1, and Rob will head team #2. The following weekend is Easter Weekend, so the GAP Matches take the week off. They begin again Sunday, April 28th, then finish off on Sunday, May 5th.
By now, we all know this is Limekiln’s last season. I know there are many groups scrambling around trying to find someplace else to play. Even if you do secure a new golf course to play this year, you’ll always be welcome to jump in here on any weekend, just give us a call. Our last meeting with the new owners has confirmed that the builders will take over December 1st, 2019.
Green Fees, Cart Fees, will remain the same this golf season. The Associate Membership will also remain the same, $160.00. The 2019 lineup of the usual tournaments, club championships, members scramble will all continue this season.
We’re determined to keep the golf course in good shape, and make this last season one of our best. Now, if only the weather will cooperate.
Finally, I hate to begin the season again with bad news, but the passing of a long time favorite member, Dave Donahue, touches us deeply. Dave was always the first car in the lot on Saturday morning. After the girls made him breakfast, he was ready to take his 34 handicap out for a spin. He rarely missed a tournament, and he will be missed by everyone.
