October 2014


From the President

 

Greetings!  I hope your fall is starting off well.  It seems like it’s already a little cooler and wetter than usual for this time of year.  The rain sure has been good for the course this year.  More rain this fall is only going to help, especially in areas that we’ve tried to improve.

 

Speaking of improvements, the Board and staff has come to the conclusion that keeping carts off of the fairways this fall and winter will help prevent further damage at a time of year when the grass is most vulnerable.  When the grass is dormant during the winter months it is more susceptible to cart damage.  This in addition to several years of drought has taken a toll on parts of the course.  Our goal is to “rest” the fairways a little and then make further improvements next spring.  Starting October 15th, the course will be cart paths only, until a time to be determined next year.   We ask for your understanding and cooperation in this effort.

 

I would again like to thank our staff for all the work they do as well as those members who do a lot of work around the course.  There are several who put in a lot of time and effort to benefit the club without many people knowing about it.  They are very much appreciated!

 

Blessings,

Chad

Hello Members,

 

Well it looks as if the cooler weather has started to show up.  It sure makes for some great golfing days as long as the wind doesn’t blow in with it!!  With the arrival of Labor Day it sure gets slow around here.  If you get the chance you should head out and play.  Days are usually not very busy and you can get around at a nice pace.  Come on out and see for yourselves!!

 

Thanks to all that played and to the Burton Family for their continued sponsorship of this event!!

 

Well there are only 1events left this season:   19 Man Shootout on the 19th.  Get signed up if you want to play!!!

Hello to Everyone,

What a wonderful fall season we are having this year! It is perfect golfing weather. As much as I like the fall, this means that winter is just around the corner, so while the weather is nice come get your golf in! This past weekend we had the 19-man shootout and had a great turn out. The final three men were Rick Palmer, Chad Pernell, and the 2014 shootout champion was Jim Giacomazzi. As always if you need anything golf related please check with the pro shop staff. We can beat Golf Headquarters price 99% of the time and on special orders we can have it shipped to your door.

From the President

 

Greetings.  I hope you’re having a good summer.  The rain has been a welcome change from the drought we’ve endured for the last several years.  Hopefully it will continue.  It’s taken some pressure off our well and the effort to keep enough groundwater on the course.  Grass always seems to respond better to rain anyway. 

 

While the rain is good and needed, it does create some problems for the club and the course.  Our staff has worked hard to keep the parking lot area clean after these rains.  They’ve also worked on fairway number 3 by removing soil and installing compost and seed.  Hopefully this will work.  We have other areas on the course they plan to address in the future.  We may need to be more aggressive with reducing/controlling/diverting runoff so that we can maintain grass in these areas.

 

This past month we discovered that our water supply system did not meet all of TCEQ’s requirements for a public water supply.  We are in the process of making those changes and getting an approved permit from the State. 

 

We’ve also had to replace our pool heater that we’ve had about 10 years.  The new heater will be installed shortly and the water temperature should be back to normal.

 

Thanks to the staff and everyone who helped on our July 4th get-together.  My family had a great time and I know others did as well.

 

Blessings,

Chad

The Chaparral Ladies Tournament was held June 28th and 29th, 20% of the proceeds from the tournament were donated to local charities.  CCC had several ladies that placed in two flights:  Debbie Lang and Debbie Neufeld won 1st in the 1st Flight, while Marsha Kirk and Karolyn Farmer placed 2nd.  Kim Davis and Sue Herring won 1st in the 2nd Flight, while Laurie Hollingsworth and Regina Dinga won 3rd.  Carpet Tech volunteered to handle the putting tournament on Saturday evening after play.  Bob Lang once again provided free drinks and drove the beverage cart Saturday during play.

June 2014

From the President


Finally some rain!  It’s been a while since we’ve had any meaningful precipitation and more is in the forecast for the next few days.  That’s good news for the golf course.  NOAA has increased the odds of El Nino (wetter and cooler weather for Texas) conditions occurring, so hopefully there’s a lot more to come this year.


By the time you read this, the pool will have opened, so I hope you come out and enjoy it this summer.  If you have party plans, contact Courtney or Billy so they can put you on the books.


I want to say thanks to everyone who helped at our Spring work day.  I know most of you have been doing this for a long time.  I’ve never seen a membership so invested in its club and that’s what makes Canyon Country Club special.  Thank you to the Ladies Auxiliary for the new counter in the pro shop.  It looks very nice and professional.


Blessings,
Chad
