Adult Lessons Update

INTRODUCTION TO GOLF
This flexible golf instruction program consists of five 90minute lessons taught over a five-week period at the practice area and on the course. This is an excellent class for a beginner’s introduction to golf or for a long-time golfer who has never been trained on the fundamentals of the golf swing.
Classes cover putting, chipping, pitching, and full swing with irons, fairway woods, and driver. During the on-course portion of each class, we cover topics such as: golf etiquette, course management, and the rules of golf.
By the end of the class, students will be familiar with playing on a golf course, how to play with other golfers, and will have a practice plan that will help them improve their newly acquired skills. The cost for “Introduction to Golf” is $149 for adults. If you have juniors or grandchildren, take lessons with them in April. There is no additional cost for juniors!
To find out more about our Golf Club programs, email Ernie Hutchins at EHutchins333@gmail.com for the class overview and to sign up.

Course Etiquette and Rules Update 

Respect private property at all times!

It is Not OK, to walk onto the private property of villagers who own homes along the golf course, for any reason. If a ball is on private property, it is lost!
Spring Reminders • Non-golfers: The golf course may seem empty and inviting but it remains in use for golfing only. So, please, no walking, biking, playing, etc., on the course; don’t risk being injured or causing inadvertent damage to the course.

Please Honor the Honor Box!

If you don’t have a valid/current Annual Golf Pass and the Golf Shop is closed, you must pay the $14 day-fee. It’s still a bargain, so why risk a fine and/or the embarrassment of being caught not paying?

Mud-Slingers!
Golfers: Rain showers make the course wet in some areas, so please pay attention to the Cart Sign at the first tee, and repair fairway, greens, and tee box divots that you and others make to keep the course healthy and in good playing condition for those who follow. Thanks!

Thank you for acknowledging the rules and we’ll see you on the tee at BBV!!!
