Wedgewood is looking for a couple more volunteers to work in the pro shop. Wedgewood welcomes the Proctor’s as volunteers. Frank has played golf since he was young and got Freda interested in golfing when he needed a Cat & Dog partner. With encouragement from Freda’s uncles and aunts she learned the wonderful game — golf. They have been Wedgewood members for the past 8 years along with their son so they have enjoyed watching the grandchildren swim and also playing golf. As new volunteers at the pro shop, they enjoy meeting and seeing everyone. The Proctor’s want to play like pros but instead enjoy the day hunting the ball.
Wedgewood is offering corporate memberships for the 2017 season and the new member family discount is available. Children under 12 can play for free after 5:00 p.m. under the supervision of a member or and adult paid green fee. As always you are invited to play in the daily big game at 1:00 p.m.
I hope everyone is getting outside and enjoying the beautiful spring weather. The dogwoods and columbine are flowering, and the May apples are plentiful around the course. Oak and hickory trees are blooming and producing a lot of pollen. The wild turkeys are gobbling and the whip-poor-wills should begin to call. More birds should be returning to our area including chimney swifts, indigo buntings and dickcissels. I know some of the members have been fishing and enjoying white bass.
