Golf Shop Talk

Every day we seem to get one step closer to golf weather! There are some great things happening now at Wilderness Ridge and we hope you can be a part of it! The calendar of events has now been rolled out for members outlining fun events for Men, Women, Couples and kids. There are member bulletin boards in both locker rooms as well as the CafĂ© that will outline all the upcoming events. For the month of April we are planning a fun 9-Hole Men’s night event called a “One Man Scramble”. Basically it is a scramble format with yourself! Following the event participants can take part in a fun Taco and beer dinner. In May we will follow that up with a 3 Club Challenge on May 19th. For non-members, the Professional Staff will be hosting a free golf clinic for children of parents serving in the Military. Governor Dave Heineman will be signing a proclamation on April 8th declaring April as the month of the military child. Wilderness Ridge is excited to be able to give back to our community and to the men and women that keep us safe.

Beginning in May the member match play event will begin as well as the regular Thursday night league. Sign up’s are steadily coming in to the shop. In addition to the match play, our first couple’s night will be held on Friday, May 14th. This is a fun 9 hole event followed by dinner on the deck. There will be at least one couple's event per month and in July there are two. The final couple’s event will be a glow “night” golf scramble in August on the Executive Course. And finally in May we are trying to start a ladies 9-hole social golf night for members. This is a fun night for ladies to play in a non-competitive game of golf and gather following the round. A few tee times will be held each week for those wishing to participate. There is no cost to participate for our lady members.

The complete calendar of events has been e-mailed to all members and any updates to the schedule will be passed on through the e-mail.
