Last weekend on Saturday afternoon we had 2 more people in the pond on #9. The member’s clubs were left on the asphalt short of the bridge as their group putted out. The ground was level so the brake not set. As they were putting a gust of wind came up and you guessed it…into the pond they rolled. Ty Leonard went in up to his neck and unfortunately the water got too deep before he could retrieve all his weapons. Head Professional Dean Manz (who is becoming quite a regular in that pool) then went in to help and was soon up to his shoulders as well. Good ole Dean was able to retrieve the rest of the clubs. Let’s hope this is the last episode…but you never know what you never know!
Members are reminded to lock their cars and keep valuables out of sight as several vehicles in our parking lot have been ransacked.
