Weather patterns continue to be unusually wet and cool, but this certainly has not dampened our “Drive for 35” membership program. 
 
Between confirmed new members, prospects Sandy is working with and leads that continue to come in we expect to achieve our target of 35 new members this summer. Leads from you are still our greatest source of prospects, so thank you for continuing to forward these to Sandy.

As the weather slowly makes a turn for the better, I am pleased to announce that we are making some minor changes to the menu to reflect feedback we have received from the membership. I continue to welcome your feedback and will accommodate within reason and ample notice. We do have a limited kitchen facility here and do our very best to meet requests. We appreciate your indulgence as there is very little we can not do to make your experience pleasurable.

FLAG GOLF -  is a competition format in which golfers begin the round of golf with an allotment of strokes, then play the golf course until their strokes run out. 
 
The game gets its name from the fact that little flags are usually given to competitors to stick in the ground at the point from which their final shot is played. No Cost. Regular Tee Times and this is an optional event.

The Divot pictured is a common sight on any golf course, the issue with this particular divot was that it was found on the third green, Thursday June 6th.  This is obviously unacceptable, the turf maintenance crew works extremely hard to provide great conditions here at Mad River, please be respectful of your golf course and property.
