Cobb’s Glen Newsletter
Work has begun on a couple of projects we have been trying to tackle. Although we can’t afford new cart paths, we have begun tearing out the old ones. I know they are bumpy but we will remove the worst ones first, starting with # 2. We are using the same excavator to dig in the bunkers trying to find drainage and at the same time we are moving the sand from low end to high. Only a band-aid but should make the bunkers much more playable until we can afford a full renovation.
Kudo’s to Whitt and Denton for initiating the Iceberg open. This year’s event was held on January 28th and 36 teams played 27 holes. Fun was had by all and I think everyone looks forward to next year. We learned a few things about the format and will make a few adjustments for next year but it was a hit! Thanks Guys!!
Speaking of hits, the 19th Hole @ Cobb’s Glen has become quite popular on Friday Nights. Thank you Sharlyn and staff (Julie,Jordan and James) for helping make Cobb’s Glen a great place to dine.
A word from the Pro Shop
The new year is off and running! We were very fortunate with the weather for the most part in January. We had 4 days in the 70’s, and some great days for golf. I saw more shorts than I have ever seen before for this time of year. Hopefully February will bless us with more of the same! I hope everyone had a great time in the Iceberg Open. This was our first year for that event. It seemed to go relatively smoothly, although there were some mistakes. We are going to work on making it a bigger and better event next year! We did have 72 players in our first year. We feel we started with a great foundation to build on! Here are your winners from the tournament:
1st- Mike Wooles and Dave Bradosky

From Anita in the Business Office:
The opportunity to be on yearly Range Plan comes up in March. If you were on the yearly range plan last year, you will automatically be billed for your yearly charge on March unless you let me know to discontinue you from the yearly plan. The cost of yearly range plan is $225 for a single and $300 for a family. This gives you unlimited range time and range balls throughout the year (weather permitting). You will need to let me know before the end of February if you would like to sign up for the yearly plan or discontinue your yearly plan. This sign up is each March 1 only.
We still have a few delinquent accounts that need to be cleared up before our corporate taxes are done. There are not many, but we would ask that everyone try to make sure your accounts are current during February.
Will be changing our Point of Sale and Billing system sometime in February. If you have any questions regarding your account that will require going back to previous months, please take care of these questions during February as we will not have access to previous statements once the new system is in place.
Social Members – With the change in billing for the Social/Pool memberships that we put in place this past June (one yearly charge in June), we hope it is easier for you to see exactly what you still owe on your memberships. Many of you have starting paying extra each month in an attempt to pay off the yearly dues early. This is appreciated but you still have the option of paying just $38/$35 each month, as long as you have paid the $456/$420 in full by end of May 2017. Your 2017 Social Membership will automatically renew on June 1 if you do not let me know. Your 2016 membership should be paid in full by end of May, 2017.
As always, feel free to call me with any questions you may have regarding billing or membership. Have a great 2017!
