  • 2015 was one of the driest and hottest years on record. While it created some headaches and

    creative water usage by our Green staff, it allowed our Members to enjoy the game they love well

    into late December. The fact that we were able to keep the regular Golf Course open until January

    is a testament to the terrific work Chris Harriman and his staff do on the course each and every day.

    The unseasonably warm temperatures also helped keep Clubhouse activity high, with no snow or

    ice storms interrupting a Santa Brunch or New Years Eve Dinner. Our luck finally ran out with the

    arrival of Winter Storm Jonas, which set records across the Mid-Atlantic for snowfall totals. The

    club received over 30 inches of snow from the storm. I want to thank our Assistant Golf Course

    Superintendent, Drew Cheveaux, who worked around the clock plowing the lots and stayed at the

    Club to make sure all of the buildings remained in proper working order.

    As a new year begins, please remember that we want and need your help to grow the membership

    levels here at Cattail. If you have any friends, colleagues, neighbors or family members interested

    in membership, please pass their information to our Membership Director, Gabby Forte. The

    membership committee and Gabby have put together some terrific and unique programs for this

    upcoming season, and she would be pleased to share them with you. Our best source for new

    Members continues to be our current Members; thank you in advance for all of your referrals. A

    healthy membership level is the lifeblood to a financially stable club.

    Cattail continues to be a wonderful place to hold your special event or outing, for personal or

    business use. We have expanded our catering abilities to provide off-site events in your home or

    business. Let us cook and clean up at the event so that you may enjoy yourself at the party!

    While Winter Storm Jonas brought us over two feet of snow, it also took something from us as well.

    Kemp Kaminkow had just been recognized this past December for his ten years of service to Cattail

    Creek Members and staff. Kemp passed away suddenly on Saturday, January 23 at his home. Kemp

    was one of the people that made Cattail such as special place, and he will be missed.
