MEMBERSHIP NOTE

As we move into Phase 3 we are still requiring face coverings inside the clubhouse and at Embers unless actively eating or drinking. Please remember to practice social distancing, stay 6 feet apart, and wash your hands for at least 20 seconds. If you are feeling sick please stay home and stay inside.

Netting update: Our vendor to repair the netting on the driving range is scheduled to come down as soon as it is dry enough for their heavy equipment. In the meantime, please avoid aiming toward the net side and favor the left-hand side of the practice area. Thank you for your patience while this problem is being solved.

GOLF NEWS

The season is right at our fingertips. We are so happy to welcome back the Men’s Club, Ladies Club, 9’s Enough Club, and officially welcoming back the Couple’s Club. Please be aware, you do not need to be a part of a couple to come participate in these Couples Club events. These are open to single sign-ups and we will do our best to pair you up! Please reach out to Mark Nelson for additional details.

Our Men’s Club Opening Event was a great success with 18 great holes of golf, and a great meal and meeting following the round. Our Ladies Club Opening Event will be April 24, and our Couples Club Opening Mixer will be on April 30. Going forward you will see the tee sheet blocked for the given club days again, so please book accordingly. This season is gearing up to be very successful given each club thus far has seen growth in signups across the board, and we expect that to translate to participation increases, so congratulations to growing great club participation.

Around the club, keep a few dates in mind: Thursday, April 8 Callaway will be coming out for a demo day, so keep an eye out to sign up for time to trial the new Callaway products. Saturday, April 10 will be Indian Summer’s Masters Event. This will be a club event, so it will be open for all participants and will be a tee timed event. Thursday, April 15 Taylormade will be joining us for their demo day here at Indian Summer. A sign-up sheet will go out for that as well so be prepared as these time slots go quickly. April will be filled with a lot of events and a lot of players, and we could not be more excited!

For those that have played all winter, we thank you all for coming out and supporting the club. And for all those who went somewhere warmer, we wish you safe travels back and we can’t wait to host you all for a great 2021 season.
— Austin Zech, Head Golf Professional

FROM THE GOLF COMMITTEE

Please help keep care of our course by fixing pitch marks, replacing divots or using sand, and driving carts with caution keeping them on the path where provided.

Also, please remember to inform your guests about our dress code. While we do allow denim in the clubhouse it is not acceptable on the course or at the practice areas.

TURF MAINTENANCE UPDATE

The rainfall has been pretty steady this off-season and unlike the rest of the country, our temperatures are below normal averages….yay for us? Due to the persistent wet conditions, ropes are being used throughout the course to direct people away from vulnerable areas of turf to minimize damage. Since our cart paths are not continuous, the grass does not get a break even when weather conditions are terrible and carts would otherwise be restricted to paths. Currently, #5 fairway is roped off completely to direct cart traffic toward the left side rough. Fertilizer was applied to stimulate growth and recovery of the thinned fairway turf.

As mentioned in the February newsletter, the tees and approaches were punched and sanded and have fully recovered. We hope to address the greens as soon as we can get 2-3 consecutive dry days with temperatures in the upper 50s. For now, the greens are on hold due to wet conditions. Aerification prepares the greens for summer wear and tear, and when done poorly can be detrimental.

A light application of fertilizer was applied to the fairways to encourage growth and healing of the turf. Edging of the tee/fairway stones and bunkers is well underway. The rock beds around the ball washers have been treated to control the weeds and the weeds inside the bunkers will also be treated. The low-hanging branches along the cart paths have been pruned and routine mowing of the course is resuming. Last, the Pythium damage on #10 green is slowly improving and the green is now open for play but it will take more time to heal the green 100%. Thanks for your patience and support.

A MESSAGE FROM IAN

Once again, as winter fades away into the distance, we find ourselves looking forward for signs of spring. As I’m writing, we have just finished another successful St. Patrick’s Day (weekend) celebration and, as always, Chef Mike’s dishes took front and center. Chef may not be Irish… but he should be. He has once again outdone himself and raised his own culinary bar this year with the dishes we sent out garnering many, many compliments. It’s always nice to see all the happy, satisfied expressions as my crew and I say “good afternoon” or “good evening” to our guests and send them on their way.

The next dining event on the Indian Summer calendar is coming up quite quickly this year, Easter Sunday. Luckily the COVID restrictions have loosened a bit just in time, allowing us to serve more than six guests at a table. Why not take advantage and bring the family by the “locally world-famous” Indian Summer Easter Brunch (not before emailing or calling to reserve your spot, of course ☺). Be assured that your safety is, and has always been our highest priority. We’re taking care to maintain our already high sanitation standards so that you and yours may have as normal a holiday as possible. It wouldn’t be right to miss out on the spectacle that is our annual Easter Brunch, this year, being served between 11am–2pm on Sunday, April 8. It’s coming up quickly so be sure to email ians@indiansummergolf.com or call (360) 459-4572 to reserve your family’s holiday brunch experience.

FOR THE COCKTAIL CONNOISSEUR

Pot of Golf

This one was a big hit as a featured beverage during our St. Patty’s Day celebration. The ingredients are authentically Irish but don’t come together to make a gimmicky, artificially green-tinted cocktail.

Ingredients
• 1oz. Tanqueray Sterling Vodka (or one of your
favorites)
• 1oz. St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur (or elderflower
syrup)
• 4 slices fresh cucumber
• 1 sprig of mint leaves with stems removed
• “Q” Ginger beer

Preparation
1. Muddle the mint and cucumber in the bottom of a cocktail shaker (if you don’t have a muddler the handle end of a wooden spoon works just fine).
2. Add the vodka and St. Germain with plenty of ice and give it a few shakes.
3. Strain into a pint glass filled with ice then add the ginger beer, a mint leaf, and cucumber slice for garnish.
Cheers!
