It’s been a chilly and snow-covered last week, but if the upcoming forecast is correct, we’re tentatively looking at re-opening the course for play on Saturday, the 31st (with the potential for some additional play beyond that, but we have to see how things go). If everything lines up, we’d be looking at tee times starting around late morning or midday on Saturday and continuing through the afternoon.

As we get closer to the weekend, call the Pro Shop at (715) 634-2760 to get a status report and to check for tee time availability.

Also this weekend, the public is invited to the Caddyshak Bar and Grill. The bar will be open both Saturday and Sunday starting at 11:00am, and will be featuring inventory reduction drink specials, Badger and Packer football on television, and reduced prices on pizza, hot dogs, and brats. There will also be corn hole boards set up in the dinning room. Saturday will feature $2 rail drinks, tap beer, and $2 cans and bottles of beer. Sunday we will drop the price to $1 for beer and rail drinks. Thanks for a great season!

Finally, just a reminder that the 2021 Hayward Open sign-up will kick off at 8:00am on Saturday, October 31st. We will be taking sign-ups by email or phone call, and we expect the spots to go quickly.

The board has 100 squares, and each square costs $25. Each square is associated with a set of secret numbers (to be revealed later), and if your numbers correspond to the score of the game at the end of each of the four quarters, you win!

Additional details are as follows:

• You can purchase up to 4 squares (or $100 worth).
• Payout will be $250 a quarter ($200 for exact numbers and $50 for reverse numbers)
• We will release board numbers as soon as it is full!

The remaining amount after payouts will go towards the On-Course Improvement Fund.
