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.
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.
Remember that Friday Night Scrambles are going on and this is a great way to meet fellow members and have a good time.
We have a lot going on this month around the club; please take a look at the calendar.
