Harry Turner’s July Message

2019-08-06T19:02:25+00:00August 1st, 2019|

By Harry Turner, COO & GM I hope everyone’s summer is going along nicely. Rams Hill is now entrenched into the heat of summer, but the team is diligently getting ready for the upcoming season. A major landscape project is underway primarily around the tee boxes on hole #2 and all along the entire south side of hole #3. Jose and the turf department are hard at work in preparation of “HOPEFULLY” opening the golf course sometime in October this year. As mentioned to many of you, this will be a game-time decision as it will be dictated on the weather, the condition of our overseed, and the condition of our bentgrass greens. We will keep you informed with our social media and monthly newsletters. On the food and beverage side, Dennis O’Leary is working at completely revamping our menu and food offerings. The upcoming season [...]

Harry Turner’s June Message

2019-07-25T14:34:07+00:00June 1st, 2019|

By Harry Turner, COO & GM The 2018/2019 season has been a great success. Once again, it’s hard to imagine that the season is over as it comes and goes so quickly. I want to thank all of our Rams Hill Members for their wonderful support. I too want to say thanks to the many guests who have continued to make trips to Rams Hill a part of their busy schedules. The summer is a time when we do special projects on the golf course and around the Clubhouse as we continually strive to improve all aspects of Rams Hill for Members and guest. This year, we will focus our attention on maintaining our greens in an effort to open back in the second week of October. Opening in October will be dependent on the condition of the golf course at that time. We will likely not [...]

Harry Turner’s May Message

2019-05-06T14:15:34+00:00May 1st, 2019|

By Harry Turner, COO & GM It’s hard to believe, but our season is coming to a close soon. It seems like it was only yesterday that we were preparing for the opening of the season and now it’s almost over. As many of you know, Sunday, June 9th will be the final day the golf course is open this season. We hope that the 2019/2020 season will begin earlier this fall. Our goal is to have a soft opening in mid-October this year. The opening date will be dependent on the condition of the course coming out of overseeding but we are optimistic. Jose and his team are already preparing the summer schedule with the early opening date in mind. Let’s hope Mother Nature is kind to us this summer. Prior to closing we still have several important dates for you and your guest to circle. Mother’s [...]
