We are breaking through Winter, and Spring will soon be here. I for one will be happy to see warm weather coming our way. We have some great Club events lined up in the next few months and we anticipate a great turnout for each of them.
The first Club event of 2012 is The Big Cup on March 3rd. It was a great success in its inaugural year last year. The Big Cup tournament is played with a cup that is an inch larger than the standard USGA cup. This event will be fun and should determine whether players can shoot lower scores with a larger cup. This is a Member/Member event, so find a partner and sign up for the first event of the year.
The next big event this year is The Brute on April 28th & 29th. This is a Match Play Challenge in which each two person team will play 5 ninehole matches over two days against the other teams within their flight.
Back by popular demand is Couples Twilight Golf on March 23rd. Twilight Golf is designed for couples to play golf and have dinner with other couples in a fun, social environment. These are held on Friday evenings at 5 pm and will continue through November. Players of all handicaps are welcome to participate. We can’t wait to see you there!
We also are very excited about the Hole-in-One Club that began in 2009. When a member of the Hole-in-One Club makes an ace at Comanche Trace, each of the other Hole-in-One Club members are billed $5.00. The money is placed into the Credit Book account of the person who shot the hole-in-one. We currently have 118 members enrolled. Our 2011 members recording a Hole-in-One are Toni Manchester, John Harrison, Don Henderson, Trevor Hyde, Bill Novak, Barbara Lipe, John Swann, Steve Wade, and Doug Matey Jr. If you aren’t signed up, enroll now! You never know when that hole-in-one might happen.
The touring professionals will be at Comanche Trace just as Spring is coming to Texas Hill Country. The PGA tour has revamped its schedule so that the Valero Texas Open will be the held two weeks after The Masters. Once again, the pre-qualifi er and qualifying rounds of the Valero Texas Open will be hosted by Comanche Trace on April 12th and 16th. With the excellent condition of our bentgrass greens and fairways the touring professionals will be excited to play such a high caliber club.
