Still Thankful

Just a day after Thanksgiving we are reminded that the golf course does not take days off.

Grass still grows on a holiday, leaves fall on a holiday and yes, pipes can break on a holiday. The picture here is not a new water feature at 14 green but a busted valve late on the Friday after Thanksgiving. At least it didn't happen on Thursday afternoon. Just a part of the job and yes, we're still Thankful!

It got pretty cold here this week with a few frost delays. Please check in with the golf shop if you have an early tee time and cold weather is expected. While we can live with a little frost in the rough, we will hold players from going out when the tees and greens have frost. Thank you for your patience during these times and please know we are doing what is best for your golf course.

Thanks and we'll see you on the course!

A Lot to Be Thankful For

Sometimes its hard to realize just how fortunate we are to be a part of such a special place. Claremont CC, Oakland, The Bay Area, California, The United States of America... Man do we have it good. To live, work, recreate and raise our families in one of the most desirable places in all of the world. That is special. It's easily forgotten just how good we have it. Thanksgiving is a special time when we allow ourselves to take a break and enjoy good times with family and friends. To think about the many things we have to be thankful for. To give back to those less fortunate.

What am I thankful for? A happy, healthy and supportive family. An amazing place to go to work each day and call my office. A very supportive Membership and General Manager. A great group of people to work with. A good Dog. A short drive home. Food on the plate.

We are Lucky. Thank you. Enjoy a wonderful Thanksgiving!
