Cobb’s Glen Newsletter
A word from Wade
Before I forget let me say thank you to the Cobb’s Glen MGA and especially Phil Gibisch, Normand Roux and Greg Williamson for the construction of our new water cooler structures. There was an assist by the Anderson County Career Center but these 3 went beyond the call of duty to see this project through. Small improvements like that are very noticeable. At the same time we need to thank the CGLGA for all of their 50-50 raffles which is raising money for their capital fund to be used on other projects around the club. The teamwork at Cobb’s Glen is incredible and is much appreciated by the May family!
The pool has been running fantastic this summer thanks to the leadership of Ken Bradshaw. He has been a blessing to me and is also a CPO (Certified Pool Operator). I might add! If you have any pool party needs between now and about the middle of September, please call Ken .
The course is in fantastic shape and it is nice to have so much grass to hit off of. We do know however, the cart paths are in desperate need of attention. The advisory board will be focused on what we can do to improve them and it has already been a major topic of discussion in the last several meetings. We were required to put new roofs on the pool and the cart barn which drained all of the available funds used for repairs. Note we did not use the capital fund account for these projects. It is no fun to spend money on such projects but it was either repair them or lose our insurance. Maybe next summer we can combine our resources with the capital fund and do some fun stuff.
I know many of you are disappointed in the cart fleet and unfortunately we have 3 more years on our lease. I have been in constant contact with Club Car expressing our concern for the next couple of years and have also contacted other vendors to check the possibility of another fleet. Hopefully Club Car will come up with a solution to get us in a new fleet more sooner than later.
Now from Denton
It is hard to believe, but the summer is already winding down, as we enter the month of August. It has been a summer to remember here at Cobb’s Glen. The club has been extremely busy, and the golf course has flourished this summer. The golf course has been in the best shape I have ever seen it in my 7 years here. We all need to give a big thanks to Chip Owens and his staff for their tireless work on the course. We have also had a great time as a staff with all the kids for the Cobb’s Glen Tri Sports Camps. All of the camps have been a blast, and we hope all of your kids who participated had fun as well. August is a relatively quiet month on the tournament front, but here is the tournament calendar for August:
- August 7th – Furman Good Guys – (1st Tee closed from 9am-11am)
- August 12th – MGA Cup – (Course closed from 9:45am – 12pm)
- August 19th – Danny Spearman Tournament – (Course closed from open – 2pm)
- August 26th-27th – PKB Tour – (Saturday 1st tee closed 11am-1pm / Sunday 1st tee closed 9am-11am)
We also will be hosting the Club Championship on the last day of this month. Due to the newsletter going out before then, we will post the club championship results in the September newsletter. Thank you to everyone playing this year. We reached our goal of 50 players, which is very exciting. We almost doubled participation from last year! We hope that everyone has enjoyed the summer, and all of the events. We are looking forward to fall….and some cooler weather! If anyone needs anything, or has any questions on any events coming up, please feel free to call the pro shop (864-226-7688) at any time. August the 19th is really the only date that may effect our membership any. If that event becomes big enough for them to close the course down for that Saturday, we will set something up for everyone at another course. Thank you for all of your support this summer, and we look forward to seeing you out on the links!
Well, it’s the hot, dog days of August …….. well not really. The weather has cooled off, the humidity is down and the pool is waiting. Cool, clear water and perfect temperatures make for a great day at the pool. With only a couple of weeks left before school starts, bring the kids, a sandwich and a float and spend a few hours with us. After school begins, there will be no lifeguard on duty during the day, but there will be attendants there after 4pm. The gate will be open so come on in and enjoy. Pool closing date will be September 4th. If all is well we will try to keep the pool open although it will be “swim at your own risk” Look forward to seeing you soon!
