Then you might be interested to know that your Club has created a group of like-minded individuals that meet once a month and “Share the Vine”. The monthly meetings are themed in advance to give you an idea of what the menu will be and what type of wine to bring. The cost is usually $35.00+ and a bottle of wine to share with the group (per person). The meetings are limited to the first 24 that sign up via email directly to me. If spots are still available 3 days before the meeting, non-member guests will be allowed access. Currently there are roughly 45 email addresses in our data base, and we have room for a few more. If you are interested in becoming part of “Share the Vine” now is your chance. On April 23rd at 6pm, “Share the Vine,” will have an open meeting to encourage all that are interested to attend and join the group. The theme of the April meeting is “California,” and Chef Mark is already coming up with ideas for the menu. If you are interested in joining the group, please email me directly at [email protected] (the front desk does not handle these reservations).

SUPERINTENDENT’S REPORT The golf maintenance staff has endured several winter storms that included 4 inches of snow, approximately 1.5” of ice and sleet and a freezing rain storm that coated the property with about a .25” of ice that caused some moderate damage to many of the pines on the course. Needless to say, we are happy to see some warmer, sunny and drier days. There are few things better than a mild Spring day at the Club. We are almost there! Glen Junkin, GCS Golf Course Superintendent Despite the harsh weather conditions, the golf maintenance staff has been busy on all of the winter projects we customarily do. Refinishing tee markers, course benches and the club’s patio furniture, as well as, repairing and refinishing the course’s ballwashers are typical tasks that we accomplish during the slow winter season. In addition to these course accessories, the staff renovated the Mechanic’s Shop and Staff break room. Both areas look great and will allow us to be better organized, efficient and effective. Also over the winter, we have removed several diseased, insect- infested or storm damaged trees, and replaced the turf around them resulting in approximately 18,000 sq-ft of new turf added! As March and our Spring season begins, we look forward to getting the course ready for the busy golfing season. The week of March 23, the staff will aerify greens. A process that’s not fun for us (or for our golfing members), but a very necessary task to ensure quality playing conditions all season long. We will also begin getting our color display containers ready and the fern containers out of the greenhouse. They look fantastic! A new project we are taking on this Spring is the growing of some select herbs for the kitchen in the clubhouse. Perhaps, this Summer when you enjoy some fine dining at the club, the rosemary, parsley or chives will have all come from right here on the club property!
