From the President
On behalf of the Board and search Committee, I would like to welcome Billy Pope as our new General Manager of Canyon Country Club. Billy is very excited to have this position after working here for the last 5 years and considering so many of you friends. If you haven’t already done so, I invite you to come by and say hello.
We had 24 teams play in the Polar Bear Tournament, which turned out to be a fairly nice weekend for golf, though it did start off a little cold on Sunday. If you haven’t done so already, you might mark your calendar for our tournaments this year. Our next tournament is Mikel’s revenge scheduled for March 22. We are still working out the details on the format of the tournament, but I’m sure it will be fun.
In an interesting side note that could affect Canyon Country Club: Two weeks ago at a water conference in Amarillo, a meteorologist from the National Weather Service gave a presentation on how there is almost a 50% chance that an El Nino weather pattern will form in the Pacific Ocean later this year. Historically this means more rain for out part of the world. Let’s pray that happens.
Hope to see you soon,
From the GM
Hello to everyone,
It’s my second week on the job as the general manager for Canyon Country Club and I could not be more pleased with how things are going. This past weekend we had our first tournament of the year, the Polar Bear. The weather was nice and we had a great turnout. Thanks to who all participated!
If you missed the Polar Bear, don’t worry! We have more tournaments coming up, and we would love for you to be a part of them!
• March 22 - Mikel’s Revenge (details will be posted later this week).
• April 5th and 6th - Adios to Winter (3 person scramble).
We are taking registration for both tournaments, so get signed up today!
There will be some changes in the merchandise we will be carrying in the golf shop. We will have accounts with most major golf brands, and we will be able to order any item you might need at a great price! If you every have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask any of the pro shop staff.
In closing I would like to thank everyone for the support and encouragement I have received since taking this position. This is a great opportunity and I am honored that the board of directors chose me to be the general manager of this club. It has a special place in my heart and I am looking forward to working hard and making this an even better country club.
