We've Been Busy
2018 ended with several pretty cool discussions about the future of RWGC.With the financial commitment shown by our members for 2019, Bill has made a personal and financial commitment to the future of this great golf course and historic property. Our staff has spent this winter thinking, meeting, planning and working to make this something you will be very proud of. Shortly, we will have an architectural rendering that will be featured on our website. Here is what is in store...
Thank you for all that have paid for your 2019 golf memberships. Your continued support of RWGC is so appreciated and will allow us to take good care of ya’ll this season. For those that have not joined, send an email, give us a call or stop by. The application is on our new and updated website www.redwinggolfcourse.com. Bill, Brent, Isaac, Brittany, Paul and crew have some great things in store for you in 2019.
The Superintendents Corner
Welcome to the release of our first news letter! I will take this opportunity in the superintendents corner to update our membership on upcoming projects and issues we may be facing. I will also answer frequently asked questions I receive.
Our MN winter was not "MN nice" to us this year! Unfortunately that means the possibility for ice damage (yuck). The good news is we will overcome! I have a plan in place to tackle any problems we may have. I’m looking forward to a successful season and seeing you all enjoying the course this year!
Event Center Expansion
We are doubling the size of the upper level towards the 9th green which will allow us to accommodate larger events. This to include a new foyer area, remodeled restrooms, two new restrooms, expanded kitchen space including walk-in cooler, a bridal suite, and a new deck with some incredible features! Get ready for a big party in the new Event Center before we host our first wedding in mid-September. Date will be announced early summer. We are working with some fantastic, hardworking, creative and talented folks who will be recognized as this project moves forward.
RWGC Parking Lot Renovation
Over the next 2-3 weeks weather permitting, we will need to replace some underground pipe from the middle of 6th Street extending to the clubhouse. Once this is completed, the existing asphalt on the parking lot will be destroyed and used as a base layer for the newly constructed lot. The old tennis court area will be redone and act as overflow lot for larger events. As weather permits, the RWGC entrance and both lots will have new asphalt and will be striped accordingly. Thanks for your patience with this. We think it will be worth the short-term inconvenience.
What was a former locker room and then recently a club storage area, our new kitchen will be able to better serve you, your friends and our daily customers. Construction started this week, equipment is being purchased, menus are being discussed and hoping for May opening. If you have a fantastic recipe for Chef D, drop it off or send it to Paul Byron at email@example.com. If we put it on the menu or run it as a special this summer, you will get a $50 gift certificate! Let’s do this!
The W House
Assuming we get a favorable ruling with the city, Bill will be purchasing the Walsh property on 6th Street. We plan on restoring a few things, keeping much of it intact, and furnishing it for guests to rent that may be having a function at RWGC, playing some golf here on a buddy’s trip, or just visiting Red Wing for the weekend. We will keep you posted as things progress.
