Dear Passholders & Friends of Canoa Ranch and Torres Blancas Golf Clubs:

Our weather for Thanksgiving has been absolutely phenomenal, and seems to see no end in sight for such a great gift.

Is it just me, or does anyone else look forward to this season, a season of Thanksgiving, of Hanukkah, and of Christmas.  Whatever you may celebrate during this season, we all celebrate with family and friends reuniting, dining, laughing, shopping, baking and eating together.  That is why we all hate November and December, when February finally arrives – because we ate too much.

The dreaded phrase of “frost delay” was voiced yesterday.  At this time in December 2020 we had already experienced 7 frost delays, as compared to none so far in November or December 2021.

Please remember, if you believe your tee time may be impacted by a frost delay, please call us on the Frost Delay and Information line – 520-352-1082.  Being that time of year for colder weather, we do anticipate frost delays as we progress farther in December.

Following the tradition of prior years, Chad will be accepting voluntary Christmas donations for the annual maintenance team member lunch by noon on Friday December 17th, and I thank you in advance for your thoughts and donations.  Chad’s maintenance team will be celebrating the holiday season over lunch on Friday December 17th at our Canoa Ranch maintenance building.  Donations will be taken and logged by anyone in the Canoa Ranch or Torres Blancas golf shops.  Past donations have included foods, cookies, cakes, and monetary gifts that go directly to the maintenance employees.  If a check is given, please make it out to Chad DeKorte, as no check (or cash) ever flows through Company accounts in any manner – every contribution goes directly to the Maintenance team.  All contributions will be acknowledged in the January 2022 GM Newsletter.

Our 2021 Passholder plan was released on Monday August 10th, with great results so far.  2021 passholder sales are 35% above last year’s sales to date. Thank you to those Passholders who have renewed already, and to all the new Passholders!

The 2nd Annual Golf Swap Meet at the Canoa Ranch Clubhouse on November 20th was a success.  Lots of golf equipment was bought and sold, including a golf cart.  We anticipate hosting another Swap Meet in March 2022, and we’ll provide lots of notice so you can sort through your golf equipment in preparation for a likely sale.

This month’s golf quote comes from an employee, "May each of you have a great Holiday Season, may your golf ball go long and straight and your putts hold true”.  Please enjoy a round of golf as you enjoy the Holiday Season.

As always, my thanks to all of you for the support you provide and the patience you have had as we continue to make improvements at both Canoa Ranch and Torres Blancas. Be safe, and enjoy life and your golfing experience with us!
