*Sunset Ridge Golf Club* May 2019 Newsletter
Happy Mother’s Day to all of the Mom’s out there. We hope you enjoy your day!
Well, we have had our fill of cool rainy weather so far in 2019. The thinking is that we are paying now for great weather to start very soon.
We have been doing our best to manage the course conditions with rope and staked areas that are off limits and creative routing of the holes. We appreciate everyone’s patience and cooperation as we get through this very wet early season.
PGA Jr. League
Great news – We officially have a PGA Junior League Team for 2019. To date we have 10 players signed up. We have room for 2 more. It’s a great program. More information can be found here: PGA Junior League. You can sign up on our website!

GHIN Handicap Service
There has been a little confusion regarding the GHIN Service this season please allow us to explain.
GHIN is not included in membership. Any golfer wishing to post scores for an official GHIN Hdcp must purchase their GHIN annually (members $20, non-members $35). If you are unable to post scores please contact the pro shop to re-up.
Remember we have a great membership referral program new for 2019. Current members who bring in new members receive 25% credit towards 2020!
