Thank you all for the support you gave the Gauntlet Golf Club during the difficult year of 2018!
As many of you know 2018 was the wettest year on record for the Fredericksburg area and as a result many golf courses suffered major turf loss. None more than the Gauntlet. As a result of the many issues we faced with maintaining good quality turf, we learned a lot about what our course needs to maintain high quality conditions. Beginning in the fall, a very aggressive recovery project was started to grow the greens back in and in doing so many things have been done to improve sunlight and airflow to the greens. We anticipate a full recovery by mid-April and the highest quality playing conditions going forward.
Many things have been done operationally as well to ensure the highest quality service, to include improved league management, tee management, new golf carts and enhanced food & beverage experiences.
The management team of New Direction Golf Management has aggressively recruited new members of its team to include, John Emerson (Golf Course Superintendent) and Karman Haggermaker (Director of Food & Beverage), both of which bring a lot of new ideas, that promise to bring the Gauntlet Golf Club experience to a new level.
On February 15th at 6pm, we invite you out to meet our new team members and hear what they have instore for the Gauntlet in 2019.
Again, thank you for your support and we hope to see you next Friday!
