Happy New Year to all,
As I sit at my desk on this cool January morning and reflect on the last 10 years at LKCC, I have this warm feeling inside my heart. Never did I ever dream that I would get the opportunity to be a part of such a successful and rewarding endeavor. There has certainly been hurdles such as: Loosing 16 greens to start the 2009 season and having to replace 2 superintendents a month before opening day but the high points greatly exceed the low points. We have been able to steadily increase revenue while erasing substantial debt and at the same time provide spectacular conditions and value. I am cautiously optimistic that our greens are enjoying a healthy winter and will be in great shape to start the season. I checked several of the greens last week and they looked great. No ice!
If you haven’t had a chance to check out our new website, you should. Nancy Calvert has done a ton of work to update and refresh our website. We now have the aerial video of the course on our web page. I think you will like it. www.lakekezargolf.com
We now have a President of the United States of America that owns some golf courses. I guess that can’t hurt our industry but I’m not sure. What I am sure of is that golf will continue at LKCC this year and for many years to come. You may be a “Trumpy” or you may despise him but please don’t apologize for Democracy. It may not always turn out the way you would like but the alternatives are frightening!
Love your family first, support your community and friends second and the rest will take care of itself. At least that’s my philosophy.
I look forward to seeing you all in the spring and watching your golf ball fly perfectly down the center of the first fairway (or at least not out in the road.)
Yours in Golf,
