Weekly News – Main Breaks and Golf Course

The City crew has been busy with water main breaks.  We want to thank the citizens for their patience while they were being repaired.  We also want to thank the Sheriff’s Department for their help in keeping the public notified via their Facebook page.

Work continues to be on schedule for the street project and the power plant engine project.  Feel free to observe the work on these projects but respect their boundaries and stay well behind their marked work-zone area.

The recent rains have been very beneficial to the golf course.  The fairways and greens are really plush and the water hazards actually have water!  There are both men’s and ladies’ golf nights.  The second session of men’s league will start on July 15th and run through September.  Starting time is 6:00 p.m.  League night will occur every Wednesday with the exception of the second Wednesday of the month.  Entry fee is $30 with cash payouts at the end of the session.  Scores are figured on a handicap system so a golfer who shoots higher scores can compete against a lower score golfer.  If you haven’t established your handicap yet, play 4 nine-hole rounds between now and July 15th and keep your scorecard so they can determine your handicap.  If you can’t commit to the entire season your name can be added to a substitution list.  For questions, call Vaughn Harms at 620-339-5347.  The ladies meet on Thursdays anytime after 5:00 p.m. and welcome players of any age or experience level!  After golfing the ladies eat together.  Bring any meat you would like to grill and a hostess will provide salad, bread and dessert. Memberships are $300 Family; $250 Single; $75 Student and $100 Social.  Through the end of 2015, all first time Family or Single memberships are half price.  Single time green fees are $10 on week days and $15 on weekends.  There are two golf carts for rent; $10 per person (limit 2 persons) for 18 holes.  A new token dispenser has been installed in the clubhouse.  It will accept $1 and $5 bills and each $1 token will get you approximately 15 balls.   Come check it out!
