  • Tournaments In Full Swing

    June 20, 2020 NOTES FROM THE PRO SHOP

    It has been a busy and exciting June so far this year. While we are adjusting to the “New Normal” that the Covid-19 pandemic has brought us, the desire of our members to golf has been extremely robust!

    Men’s and Women’s weekly events are in full swing with great participation in Tuesday 9 Hole tournaments, Wednesday Ladies Day tournaments and Thursday Men’s Club tournaments. In addition, we had our Over 80 mixed tournament, the “Pandemic Pandemonium” mixed tournament and The Men’s Spring Handicap!

    This month we celebrated the opening of the updated and remolded Pro Shop with a Trunk Sale that was fantastic! Members took advantage of specially reduced pricing on Skecher Shoes, Golf Buddy range finders, and discounts on all in house merchandise. This sale has allowed us to place orders for some new items to be offered in the shop. This includes the Golf Buddy Voice range finder that has just arrived and is on special pricing now – come in and take a look! Coming soon will be SParms protective sleeves and shawls that give high SPF sun protection for the arms during the hotter days we can expect through the Summer. These provide protection from harmful sun rays while keeping the arms cool and dry – the display will be here in the next few day and information on the benefits of this product will be available. Further, a new clothing line, BERMUDA SANDS, will be coming in at special pricing and many will carry the Woodburn Estates and Golf logo!

    Congratulations to Jerry Biddle for a HOLE-IN-ONE! Also, we wish to acknowledge Ron Aiken in the Men’s Division and Marlene Johnson and Maggie Sasse in the Women’s Division for 1st place in the Over 80 Tournament!

  • The New Normal

    May 7, 2020 Letter

    We want to thank everyone for their patience and understanding as we adjust to the “new normal” during this turbulent time. In an effort to keep our members informed of current conditions on the golf course, we are posting a schedule of play times, maintenance considerations and important updates and reminders at the starter window adjacent to #1 tee box. Please take the time to read the postings and ask questions if anything is unclear.

    Pro Shop hours are 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. every day during the season. Hours may adjust due to weather or staffing issues.

    TEE TIMES: To ensure an even pace of play and accommodate members’
    desire to golf we strongly encourage calling ahead for tee times or stopping
    by the starter window to make tee times in advance. Many members show up without tee times arranged beforehand and every effort will be made to get you on the course as soon as possible – prearranged tee times will have priority. As always, 18 hole players making the turn from one side to the next have priority on the next side.

    WEEKLY SCHEDULES:
    Mondays – the course will be open for play at 10:00 a.m. No play or tee times before that time. This is a regular accommodation for Maintenance to perform vital tasks necessary for keeping the course in great playing condition. We ask that all members give the maintenance crews consideration in this regard.

    Tuesdays – Open Play, call for tee times. Regularly scheduled 9-hole Men’s and Ladies events are suspended until further notice.

    Wednesdays – Ladies Day. The ladies have priority on the course until at least 11:00 a.m. Every attempt will be made to open tees times to other players depending on size of the ladies field – as always check with the Pro Shop.

    Thursdays – Men’s Day. Regularly scheduled events are suspended until further notice. Men have tee time priority until at least 11:00 a.m.

    Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays – Open Play, call for tee times. All events and tournaments are cancelled or suspended until further notice.

    UPDATES AND REMINDERS: Every effort is being made to keep our course open and playable while adhering to Local, State and Federal guidelines during the Covid -19 outbreak.

    The following are some golfing Do’s and Don’ts:

    • Do make tee times in advance
    • Do practice social distancing – stay at least 6’ apart
    • Do be kind and respectful to each other
    • Do wash your hands well and often
    • Don’t congregate in groups on WEG property
    • Don’t touch surfaces others may have touched
    • Don’t attempt to remove flags on the holes
    • Don’t handle other people’s golf equipment

      DO BE SAFE FOR YOURSELF AND YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS! We will get through this together.
