The Civic Club Benefit is back again. The success of last year’s tournament allowed us to complete several improvement projects, including one that is in the process of being installed just this week — a GPS system on our golf cart fleet (more details to come soon).

The proceeds for this year’s Civic Club Benefit (Major Sponsor: Don Milne) will go directly to our on-course improvement fund.  The event will be held on Sunday, August 2nd.

Individuals can sign up, and the 3-person teams will be assigned by the tournament committee. In addition, these 3-person teams will be playing in 6-somes for some added excitement as you keep an eye on your competition.

There will also be a Calcutta, providing an opportunity to be a winner even if you’re not on the winning team.

11:00 Registration & Calcutta
12:30 Shotgun Start: First 108 Players
3 PERSON SCRAMBLE
A-B-C Teams Assigned

Cost: $75 per person
Includes: Practice Balls, Golf Cart, Prizes (including a FREE MEMBERSHIP for the 2021 season!), Meal

$5 Putting Contest — $150-$100-$50 Cash Payout

For those who might prefer some later-evening practice time, we’ve decided to extend the hours of our driving range. It will now be open until the Pro Shop closes for the day (approximately between 8:00 and 8:30pm depending on the day). This will be the daily protocol other than on Tuesdays, when the range will close at 6:30pm so it can be picked clean for the grounds crew, who mow the range on Wednesday mornings.

Finally, if you’re a Member who needs or wants access to our online Membership Directory, contact the Pro Shop! It has been updated as of May 26th, and will continue to be updated periodically as more memberships come in. It’s a handy tool for making contact with other Members at HGC.

If you’ve recently played our course, you’ve probably noticed the massive excavation taking place in the area of holes 12 and 13.  This is for the pond that will serve as the reservoir for our new double-row irrigation system.

To add a little extra excitement to the project, we’re holding a fundraiser for our On-Course Improvement Fund.  For a $10 entry, you can attempt to guess how long it will take to fill the pond with water, being specific down to number of days, hours, and minutes.

The 2.2 acre pond should begin being filled sometime next week, and it is expected to require approximately 6.1 million gallons of water.  The pipe supplying the water may be sporadically turned off to meet other irrigation needs.  Use that information to inform your guess!

You can purchase as many entries as you’d like, and if you buy 5, you’ll get a 6th for free!  We will be paying the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd closest guesses.  Contact the Pro Shop or stop in to sign up!
