Late Summer Golf Season Is Upon Us

We made it through the peak of the summer 2021 golf season (July and August) and now we have some great fall golf to look forward to. The golf season this year got off to a great start, due mainly to the masterful job Jeff Clouthier and his staff did preparing both courses for the season. All 18 greens and the putting green opened at the Championship Course with no winter damage. The Mountain Course also had no ice damage and very minimal snow mold.

Thank you to all the golfers who have been using cancelgolf@ivgid.org to cancel their unneeded tee times. Because of your diligence in canceling tee times, we have been able to fill almost all the cancellations with paying customers. The last thing we want to do is charge individuals who do not call or show-up for their tee time. As a reminder, our cancellation policy is: Please call or email cancelgolf@ivgid.org to cancel tee time reservations at least 72 hours prior to your tee time for a full refund. 50% of green fees will be charged for cancellations made between 72 - 24 hours of tee time. Within 24 hours of tee time, full green fees will be charged for all golfers in your party.

The local Golf Associations have been experiencing great turnouts for their events, and as the golf season moves along, they have many more golf and social events coming up. Chef Bill and his staff are working hard every day to keep up with the demand at all of our Food and Beverage outlets. We ask for your patience as they navigate their way through what has already been a difficult and challenging season of finding enough workers to continue our operations. Some venues and times of service may become limited so that our staff can adequately provide the best product and services possible.  

Limited Operations at The Grille: Due to extreme staffing shortages, menu and hours of operation may fluctuate and The Grille may experience periodic closures. Please visit The Grille Facebook page for announcements.

Please note on your calendars the pending closure of the front nine at the Mountain Course on September 16 due to the golf cart path replacement project. The back nine will remain open as long as the weather permits, and we plan on staying open one week longer than normal.

Also, don’t forget we have specialists for Ping, Titleist, Callaway, Mizuno and Cobra on our staff for all your custom club fitting needs. Just call the Golf Shop to set up a fitting time and we will be more than happy to accommodate.
