The ACLGA will play their first Thursday Night Scramble on April 4th.   Sign up sheets for each Thursday are in the club house.

The Anderson Creek Golf Committee is starting its “Adopt a Hole Program” for the months of April and May.   Those interested in adopting a hole on the golf course should contact Jon or Dale to sign up.  Adopting a hole involves voluteering some time to repair ball marks on “your” green and also filling divots with sand in the fairway.  This is done in April and May as these months are so critical with the heavy spring play and the upcoming summer heat.

All that participate will be treated to a cookout and 9-hole golf outing with the professional staff near the end of May.
We again remind you to check our website (andersoncreekgolf.com) and go to events to check all tournament and match results, league standings, and upcoming events.  We will do our best to keep the event calendar up-to-date and keep you informed through our website what is ahead.   We also ask that league directors get any results to us as quickly as possible so that we may post the results on our site.

Also Upcoming ACLGA 9-hole Exhibition – Saturday, April 14th @ 1:00 1st ACLGA Monthy Tournament – Sunday, April 15 1st Members Monthly Tournament – Saturday April 21

We look forward to an active spring and hope as many of you as can are able to participate in the upcoming activities.
Golfingly, Pro Shop Staff
