DCC Membership NEWS UPDATE
From Derryfield Country Club
I hope you are all safe and healthy. I write this letter at a time where we might take that for granted. It’s been a difficult time around the world and now in our own back yard. As I write this, the City of Manchester and the State of New Hampshire are shutting down many nonessential services. I want to assure you that we here at Derryfield CC are doing everything we can to keep things as safe and clean as we possibly can.
I wanted to inform everyone that the opening of the course will be delayed for a little. The city has told all the nonessential employees to stay and work from home if possible. My hope is that they will not delay us too long before we can open the course. Jeff and his staff have done a great job cleaning up the course and as the temperatures rise, the play will be perfect when we open.
So, what does this mean for us and the Derryfield community? At this moment The Derryfield Restaurant will remain open for business. Mike Ryan Indoor Simulator will be open on a condensed schedule for anyone who wishes to play. For a tee time, you can call them directly at 603-625-1169. The City is allowing me to keep the shop open on a limited basis. I plan to be here Thursday-Saturdays from 9-3. Jen and I have brought in some new clothing lines and products. The TaylorMade Demo Day was a great success and we are carrying a full array of products in the shop. If you need your clubs regripped, I would be happy to take care of that for you. Our goal is to provide all of you with services as best we can during this time.
We will be moving the Women’s Twilight League meeting scheduled for March 23 to April 6. If anyone wants to join, they can email me or come into the shop. I will have more information in the upcoming weeks. If you are interested in playing, we will make sure to get you into the league.
The Callaway Demo Day scheduled for the Mar 27th is still on for the moment. I will have an update Monday the 23rd if things should change.
If you haven’t joined and plan to, you can download the application off the website and mail it in. The same goes for the men’s backroom and women’s association dues. Please remember I need these GHIN dues before the end of the month, or I will have to inactivate you until they are paid. The NH Golf Association has April 1st as the date they charge us for all active members. If you are unable to get in to see us to sign up, please email me to let me know.
This is a crazy time for us at Derryfield and around the world. The one thing we have going for us is our members at the club. There is no better place to be a part of. We will get through this delay together and come out with an incredibly conditioned golf course, the best membership a course could have, a great tournament schedule and fun times in 2020!
Jen and I want to thank you for all the support and if there is anything I can do for you please let me know.
