I hope all are well and safe. I want to reach out and give a quick update before the busy holiday week. I sit here in November, thinking that if you would have told me in March that we would have made it to this point with a continuous & phenomenal golf season, I would have said you were all nuts. Somehow, we made it. It wasn’t easy. I want to thank my staff along with Jeff and his maintenance crew for all the hard work they did to get us here. A year with so many challenges, Derryfield CC came out on top with some great memories. Many of us can’t wait for 2020 to end, but I know years from now, I will look back and appreciate this year more than any other.
We got approval from the City of Manchester to extend the following discount offer to all DCC’s current members: Any member can purchase a 2021 membership before December 31 at the 2020 price. We will have applications available in three ways. In the pro shop, the Mike Ryan Simulator room, or you may also download the application from our website. Payments can be made by credit card or by mailing a check. I hope everyone will be back for a great (and hopefully NORMAL) 2021 golf season!
As the season winds down, my hope is that we can clean up all account balances for merchandise and your credits. I plan after the course closes to have the shop open for a Christmas sale, but the increase in Covid-19 cases may hamper my efforts to be open, so please don’t wait too long. All of the Pro Shop merchandise is already on sale and going fast. Don’t tell my wife, but I have just decided to have a “Black Friday” weekend sale. All clothing will be 50% off! All golf bags and shoes 25% off! As for the course, our plan is to keep it open as much as it is feasible. Once the temperatures stay cold day and night we will have no choice but to call it an end to the 2020 golf season. At this point please call the pro shop to make sure we opened the course for each day.
As we all heard last week from the Governor, there is now a mask mandate for the State of New Hampshire. Which makes it a good time for a reminder to wear a mask while you are checking into the pro shop. The mandate says outside you may take it off as long as you can maintain social distancing. So, for golfing we should be ok for the remaining days left.
There you have it. A crazy year that never seems to end. Snow in October, 70’s in November. Please have a great Thanksgiving and thank you for so much support. My family and I truly appreciate what makes Derryfield CC so special: All of you.
