Uh Oh! It's Cart Path Only!

Here We Go ...

By Dave Barton, PGA: The sun has just risen, the tee sheet is full, the staff is ready, and the course access policy for the day has arrived …

“We are Cart Path Only today.”

The words “Cart Path Only” (CPO) can invoke a range of emotions from frustration or anger to fear depending on whether you are the golfer or the staff handling the phones and counter on this morning.

In Memoriam - Dennis Duchi

Living Every Day to the Fullest

By Rich O'Brien - From an early age, Dennis Duchi loved to be on the golf course and would regularly play 54 holes a day as a kid.

His passion for golf continued into his twenties and thirties while balancing work and family obligations.
