August 2014


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

From The Ladies Auxiliary

 

Auxiliary members met July 2nd and went out to meet new residents who have moved into the Club and surrounding area.  They welcomed the new people and invited them to join and become active in the Canyon Country Club.  A special invitation was extended to come and enjoy the CCC 4th of July celebration Hope everyone enjoyed the hamburgers, hot dogs and fireworks, couldn’t ask for a better night.

 

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


From the GM


Hope this finds everyone ready for a fun filled summer of golf swimming and vacationing.  I know that the warmer weather has me wanting to play more golf.  I want to thank everyone who has been working hard to get the course and pool ready for summer.

We have a lot going on this month around the club; please take a look at the calendar.


Thank you,

March 2014


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,

Chad Pernell

 

From the GM

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.

February 2014


From the President

First of all I would like to wish everyone a belated Happy New Year.  I hope this is a great year for you and your family. 

 

As we start a new year at the club, I would like to express thanks to those who have completed their term on the Board – Eddie Clement, Sue Herring, and Scott Hetzler.  They have put in a lot of time into making this a better place for everyone to enjoy.  I would also like to express my appreciation to Travis Loe who has served as president for the last two years.  He’s been an excellent leader and I look forward to learning from him and others in the future. 

 

We have four new Board members – Holly Johnston, Ty Roberts, Chad Powers and Brad Tooley (though Brad has been serving the end of a vacated position this past year).  I look forward to serving with them and getting to know them better as well. 

 

As Travis mentioned in his last newsletter, we are searching for a new manager of the club and are accepting applications through the end of January.  We anticipate having someone hired within the next month. 

 

As I prepared to write this, I read over newsletters in the past and noticed one a couple of years ago where Courtney, Zach and Billy were recognized for stepping up while we were in between golf pros.  Here we are again and we have the same people stepping up and doing a great job.  I really appreciate all they do for the club. 

 

Since becoming a member here, my wife and I have felt privileged to be a part of this community and look forward to raising our girls here.

 

Best Regards,

Chad Pernell
