Good Morning,

The past week was definitely a sign that winter is upon us.  The snowfall was nice for the golf course but unfortunately the high winds blew the snow in a lot of different directions.  The warmer forecasted temperatures will give us a glimmer of hope in delaying the change of seasons a little longer.  

The golf course is closed for the season.  We have our sign posted at the clubhouse and would ask that everyone respect the course closing and please refrain from golfing even if you think it’s a nice winter day to get out and hit a few balls.  The clubhouse will still be open during the day.

We have been busy starting our equipment maintenance program for the off season.  Every piece of equipment is serviced and any necessary repairs are documented.  During the winter months the repairs are completed on equipment as well as sharpening each individual reel.  

In the coming weeks there are a few events scheduled at the clubhouse.  We are hosting Arts on Grand with their Festival of Trees on December 9th.  They will also be holding a luncheon the following morning.  This is the first time this event will be held at The Muni and I am really looking forward to it.

I have recently started taking a course to receive my Advanced Emergency Medical Technician certification.  I am currently an EMT for the Spencer Fire Department.  The additional training will allow me to expand some of the life saving techniques in my scope of practice.  Class is every Monday and Thursday night.  I will not be attending the city council meetings through the month of February unless there is a topic I need to be in attendance to discuss.

As previously stated there are going to be some rate changes at The Muni for the 2023 golf season.  These rates have been updated on the website for your viewing pleasure.  We are honoring 2022 pricing through the end of the year.  Currently our ability to pay with a credit card online is not functioning but you can stop in the clubhouse or city hall to make payment.

We had a late arrival to the 2022 golf season and kind of a quick departure from it this month.  Here are a few aerial pictures taken by Mark Lawson on Thanksgiving Day 2017.
