On Friday, Stefanie Breton, the city’s public information officer, sent out the weekly City Manager’s Newsletter. Here are some of the highlights:
Beaver Meadow in full swing
The driving range and the course at Beaver Meadow Golf Course are open, as well as the patio. Get out and enjoy some golf!
A reminder that our 2019 Chet Wheeler Red, White & Blue Golf Tournament is coming up May 25 to 27. A unique tradition with this event is that all players will play from each set of tees, which are colored red, white and blue. Day 1 we will play the longest course (blue tees), Day 2 will be slightly shorter and easier (white tees) and the final day we will play the shortest course (red tees). This event is the first major of the year and signifies the start of tournament season. Cost is $80 for members, $150 for non-members. Pricing includes three days of food, a tee gift, greens fees and tournament prizes.
