SPRING NEWSLETTER 2016

What’s new this year you ask?? 

Please welcome two new additions to the pro shop staff this year:  Terry Stoudnour a retired administrator and educator at area schools including Messiah College.  Terry is not new to Liberty Forge as he has been a member for a number of years and plays in the Senior league on Wednesday mornings.  The other is Scott Shelley also a retired administrator and educator most notably at Camp Hill High School where he was the high school principal.  Scott also was a member of Liberty Forge so he is not really new to the course.  Please make sure to introduce yourself to both as you see them in the pro shop.

Another new face on the course is Don Ezbiansky who recently joined Liberty Force as the Assistant Superintendent.  Getting promoted to Grounds Superintendent is Marc Campbell.  Marc has been with Liberty Forge since the beginning.  The last several years Marc has been responsible for all of the greens, fairways and tee boxes.  So Marc, congratulations.

Also new this year is a free GPS app which will provide yardages, etc. for Liberty Forge.  You can download the app NOW.  Go to Golf at the App store or see the pro shop for information.

While the course is open and ready for play, Marc and his crew continue to work on some areas including cleaning up dead branches throughout the course, reseeding some areas, working on sand traps, mulching and re-painting  etc.  Always a never ending job.

 

We had some warm early spring weather a couple of weeks ago.  Then cold and a late Indian type of snow.  Now more warmer weather.  So I think we are over the hump.

The pro shop merchandise for the year is now in.  The 2016 clothing comes in bright colors available for both men and ladies.  Come take a look.

THE LODGE AT LIBERTY FORGE

Lots going on at the restaurant……hours for the restaurant are Tues and Wed 11am to 9pm; Thurs – Sat 11am to 10pm and Sun 11am to 7pm (turn only).  Secondly, music on Thursday nights and selected Friday nights RETURNS.  This was a tremendous success last year…..and what a beautiful setting under the stars and on the deck.  The bands start Thursday May 12th and continue through September.  Call there or the pro shop for details. 

There is a new sheriff in town.  To book your weddings, parties and  meetings call Krissy Lobaugh at 717.691.5335.  She will be happy to help you.

The Lodge is offering a Mothers Day brunch this Sunday.  One of the nicest brunches in the area.  Call for reservations at 717.691.5335.

 

GOLF LESSONS ANYONE????????????????

We have two people giving lessons this year and both come highly recommended.  Woody Boyer returns and can be reached at 717.319.8501.  Also, Maria Mills is back and can be reached at 717.421.4226.

 

 

GOOD TIP

To fix a pitch mark on the green:  You don’t need a special tool.

  1. Locate back of pitch mark and insert your tee into the ground behind it.  Now push the top of tee forward.
  2. Repeat this process on the sides, pushing ground back to middle.
  3. Tamp down with your putter to smooth out mark.

Doing this will keep the surface of the green in better shape for ALL golfers.  If everyone fixes their own mark plus one more, the surface will be very nice. 

 

BAD LIES

(And I’m not talking about something you tell to someone else).
Heavy grass: Use a 7, 8 or 9 iron and hit down and thru the ball.
Across water: Use normal swing.  Keep head down.  Into the wind: Place ball off RIGHT foot and take it easy.  Close lies:  Hit down on ball, don’t scoop.

 

We have a league for everyone.  Mens, ladies and couples.  Couples league starts tonight at 6pm and will continue every Thurs through August.  AND, this Monday night the men’s league RETURNS.  Play will start at 6pm.  Joe Gandolfo will be the captain.   Contact the pro shop for details.

Tee times are highly recommended as we get very busy certain days and certain times throughout the week.
