We are raffling off a pair of Ryder Cup Practice Round tickets, Twins Tickets, Ping Putter, and various other pro-shop items.
There will be a Masters Event On Wednesday, April 6th at 6pm at the clubhouse. There will be chips and other various snacks. The fun begins at 7pm. You don’t have to join in the gaming to have a good time. It will be a fun social event.

Please feel free stop by either of these events to celebrate the beginning of the 2016 golf season.
The Pomme de Terre Golf Club annual shareholders meeting will be held on Friday, April 1st at 6:30pm. At this meeting, we will review the financial reports from 2015, provide an overview of activities from 2015, highlight events for 2016, and have an election of board member(s).
The Pomme de Terre Golf Club is excited about the 2015 season. The course is in great shape thanks to the efforts of our shareholders, members, volunteers, and workers. If you have not been able to come out to golf or visit the clubhouse, we encourage you to do so. We can even arrange cart tours of the course if you want to see the changes in person.
We would like to bring you up-to-date on an important action taken at our annual shareholder meeting in June. To help secure the course’s long-term future, the shareholders present approved the board to move forward with sending information regarding estate planning to shareholders and current and former members. The enclosed flyer provides the details. In brief, bequests can help ensure our golf club continues to serve the community of Morris andStevensCountyfor years to come. Indeed, some of our members have started to include the Pomme de Terre Golf Club in their wills, and we are encouraging all who have the resources to consider doing the same.
Thank you for your many contributions, and for your past and present support of Pomme de Terre Golf Club. If you would like more information, or have any questions or concerns regarding this matter, please contact me.
