JK and the De Bell Deer

I never thought I would put another post on this blog, but after this photo I felt compelled.  This photo of JK was taken on the 16th as a six-point buck relaxed very nearby.  Regulars at De Bell probably won’t find this extraordinary, but I thought it was a nice photo that needed to be […]

The statue was unveiled at the grand opening.  I’m told it was a wonderful event. I’d like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the wonderful staff behind the counter at the starter station.  I think some people have a favorite starter.

The new clubhouse is open and fully functional.  It’s a wonderful building and facility and it looks like it’s built to last.  Everyone seems completely pleased.  I certainly am. After the round today, I sat down at the bar and chatted with a nice lady named Christine.  We made small talk about the new building […]

Not much to report except that the construction guys were working on a Sunday.  Are they working 7 days a week? It was too dark for us to finish our round this week but I did have an eagle on 13.  The ball went in from about 130 yards after a fortunate bounce.

The progress continues.  Many of the cosmetic touches seem to be in place.  I was playing in the Turkey Shoot today so I heard people saying to expect the new clubhouse to be open just after the new year.  I’d really like to get some photos inside but I don’t know if anyone will let […]

As always, the construction progress continues at a steady pace.  As you can see, some of the finishing details are coming together, like the stone surfaced walls. I must comment that the course condition is pretty good.  The greens are not what we’re accustomed to after playing other places, but I like them.  Too bad […]
