Cobb’s Glen Newsletter
A Word from Wade
Working on the pool has been particularly frustrating this year and we apologize for the cloudy water in the early part of the season. All of the water tests are good and it is safe to swim in!! We will have to keep the deep end closed until we can see bottom, which could be any day now or even a few more weeks. Ken Bradshaw is doing a great job with the lifeguard staff and we should have plenty to make it through the season. If you need to schedule a party be sure to contact Ken. The pool is really pleasant in the evenings!!
Chip is doing a fantastic job and the course is as green as I have ever seen it. Our fertilize order is in and ready to spread as soon as we get a couple of glitches worked out of the irrigation system. The advisory board has turned their attention to some upgrades in irrigation such as digging lines and expanding areas to include places we never have been able to reach such as the bunkers that have been removed and have left such an ugly scar. Hopefully with the new irrigation we can remove those scars.
The Cobb’s Glen Sr. team is off to a 1-1 start with a 20-4 drubbing of the Walker Course team here at Cobb’s Glen and then traveled to Greenwood and lost 13-11 to the team from the Patriot at Grand Harbor. We still have several matches left and I know all of our players will give it their best so let’s go Srs.! Playoffs here we come.!!!

What a month May has been! We have had some fantastic weather, some great golf, and capped it all off with a great tournament in the Brett Crowe Memorial. Cobb’s Glen is doing great so far this year! The dogfights are at an all time high in participation. We averaging close to 30 guys per dogfight. The Ladies League is really growing and at an all time high as well. We are seeing close to 25-30 ladies a week between the 9 hole and 18 hole league. The Golf Course is in absolutely fantastic shape, and a standing ovation should be given to Chip Owens and his staff. In my 7 years here at Cobb’s Glen, this is the best I have seen the golf course. We are looking forward to a great summer. June is going to be a busy month at the club, so make sure and check the calendar, because there are going to be a few events to shut us down at some times. Here is the Tournament Calendar for June:

Some of those days however, we will need to make accommodations at another golf course for you all. If you have any questions, please call the pro shop at (864)-226-7688.

From the Business Office
The pool is up and running and I hope everyone is enjoying. Thanks to all of you who came by to clear up all balances for the year. All balances should now be cleared up through May 2016, which pays off your 2016 pool membership. You will see your entire 2017 pool charge on this statement. You may pay it all at once, stretch it out over the year (paying at least $35 and $38 per month depending on your membership), or you may make several lump sum payments. Your 2017 pool charge should be paid off by one of these methods by May of 2018. There are a few who still have outstanding balances for 2016. Those pool members will be taken out of the system and turned over to collections. Please let us know of any problems or concerns regarding the pool. We appreciate positive and negative feedback!
We are working on our website. Please go to cobbsglen.com and look around. Let us know of anything you would like to see on the website. Also corrections are appreciated.
As always, let me know if you have any questions about your statement or need any membership information.
A word from Ken
The 2017 pool season has begun. The Memorial Day weekend was a huge success with hundreds of patrons visiting the pool over the three days. As I’m sure you’ve noticed, the water is still hazy, and the deep end has remained closed due to this condition. The water is in perfect shape other than the clarity, so swimming is perfectly safe. The shallow area will remain open while we work on water clarity. Work in scheduled to be done on our filters in hopes of clearing the water quickly, hopefully within days. Until then, come on out and enjoy the water and pool atmosphere. This week will offer only afternoon lifeguards, as school is still in session. Lifeguards will return to both shifts beginning June 6th. I’d like to also remind you that parties can be booked at the pool throughout the summer, so call me (934-5208) or the pool for rates. See you at the pool! Ken Bradshaw
