    WELCOME TO TRAVEL GOLF WITH THE W M SKI CLUB THIS WEEK

    Hi and welcome to all the WM SKI CLUB traveling golfers and friends:  

    On Monday June 24, 2024 the traveling golfers and friends will be heading west and north  to play at Chase Hammond near Muskegon.  Address:    2454 Putnam Rd, Muskegon, MI 49445 course phone:   (231) 766-3035  

    The golf course is off of I 96 West exit 118, U S 31 N and M 120.  

    This is a course that is new for our group and has been recommended for the last couple of years.  We played this course last year and loved it !  Plus it is a course with lots of shade for a warm day. The prices are right and it is always fun to try a new one for our group.  Hopefully we catch a few of our lakeshore members and friends to join us for the day.

    Our five tee times are at :  11:00   11:08    11:16   11:24   11:32   

    The Senior Rate is  $ 33.00 for 18 holes and a cart ( 61+)    $ 24.00 for 9 holes and a cart

    The Adult Rate is    $ 44. 00 for 18 holes and a cart               $ 29.00 for 9 holes and a cart 

    After Golf:    Lefty & Romos Bar and Grill — Good homemade food. — Good variety. They have a deck on the back.

    1985 Holton Rd, Muskegon, MI 49445.    (231) 744-3222It is 1.7 miles from golf course.

    Please email   shirleyjnevins@gmail.com or call 616-361-8390 at home or 616-340-8586 on cell to reserve your spot. Please inform Shirley of your intentions to play by Sunday evening at 7:30 PM  so we can make tee time adjustments if needed.  Please try to sign up earlier as it is easier to get people in groups when I can still reach the course on Sunday night.

    Please indicate if you are playing 18 or 9.  Reservation time is a little earlier this week as the course has requested that we give them our numbers earlier as they have a pretty full schedule on Monday.

    Hope to see you Monday !   It sounds like the weather will be a little cooler and less humid.  We think you will like this course.

    Thanks,

    Shirley


       After golf and refreshments, it may be a good time to visit our wonderful Lake Michigan beach.

Having water while hiking is highly recommended and bug spray is optional.
