OPEN HOUSE: ⛳ Saturday, April 29 – 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM.

As we near the end of a great season at our Club, we are beginning to focus on the 2017 season. The pre authorized payment plan will be offered once again, as an option to pay for your 2017 membership. Beginning in November of 2016 and ending in April 2017, six monthly payments are processed on either your credit card or your bank account. The added bonus is that you pay 2016 rates for your 2017 membership. You simply provide Sharon Chase with either your credit card number, or a voided cheque. Sharon will be at the Club from 10:00 A.M.until 5:00 P.M. on Saturday.
In talking with members who took advantage of the pre authorized payment plan last year, in their words ” it is the only way to go”. For those of you that take advantage of the program a draw will be done in the spring, for a golf shirt from our Pro Shop.
