Great Turnout at Golf Shop Christmas Party and Sale
The discounts on golf merchandise brought the members in for the annual Golf Shop Christmas Party and Sale, or was it the free appetizers, sweets and wine? I guess we’ll never know, but the turnout was great. The merchandise was literally flying out the door. This is just one more benefit of membership at Sierra View – member discounts throughout the year and especially deep discounts at the annual December event. Keep in mind it’s not too late to order gift certificates for golf lessons for your golfing partner. You can do so right up to Christmas Eve. Oh, did I mention free gift wrapping between now and Christmas? Yes, and we will have all remaining merchandise reduced in price until Christmas Day. Come on by and check out the values!
Update on Hazard Markers
Sierra View, after discussions with the NCGA, has changed its policy on the red stakes and paint that delineated lateral hazards. In the past, we have had red lateral hazard stakes and paint in areas that were not hazards at all, but were placed to make it easier to proceed. It was determined that we should remove all markings that were not actual hazards. So beware: if you hit a ball into the natural areas, it is “through the green” and can be played. Or, if the ball is not found, you must proceed under the lost ball rule. To keep a good pace of play, consider playing a provisional ball before going forward, if you think your ball might be a lost ball.
Best Wishes for This Holiday and 2015
All of us in the Golf Shop wish the members of Sierra View Country Club and their families the happiest of holidays and a wonderful new year filled with many gratifying rounds of golf and social experiences at the Club.
