Greetings Golfers.

Fall is a time of reflection. Can’t believe it’s October 16.

This has definitely been a strange year. I have to admit that I’m looking forward to putting the golf course to bed.

I think it’s because more than anything … I’m relieved. Like most golf courses, we had a very good year. Obviously the COVID restrictions put golf back on the radar. It was one of the things people could safely do … and they did it. And enjoyed it. And kept coming back for more.

Even this week … cold and windy … we’ve been packed every day. So, we’re going to stay open through Sunday, November 1. That’s late for us. Daylight Savings ends … and the window for play becomes very small.

However, we’ve punched the greens … so we’re only charging Fall Rates.

We also built a berm around #12 green. It’s beautiful. In fact, when you play, make sure that you have a golf towel with you … because the beauty of #12 will make you weep. It’s hard to play golf with tears in your eyes, so make sure that towel is clean.

Since I’m on a self-serving rant … I might as well go all the way. Tee Times Magazine just released their Annual Readers Choice Awards. Click HERE for the results.

We all know that Minnesotans are exceptionally intelligent … and especially Minnesota golfers. And especially the readers of Tee Times Magazine.

So, thank you to the readers … your support is much appreciated.

And to everyone who played golf at Deer Run GC this year – your support is much appreciated.

These are and were trying times. Hopefully things will go back to normal next year.

To all of you … we will get through this … and I’m glad if golf helped.

As I reflect, I realize how grateful I am to golf and golfers.

Thank you,
