    WIO Staff

  • I started my article last month with a great big, Happy 50th Anniversary.Now, with the an-niversary celebration behind us, I think I can only start the month of August by exclaiming, Wow, what an awesome weekend of 50th cel-ebrations we had!

    It all started Friday night with a Luau under the Oaks complete with roast pig, yellowtail tuna, purple potatoes and exotic tropical drinks and hula dancers.Saturday rolled right into early buffet breakfast and a 50th Anniversary Golf tournament that was loads of fun and perfect weather.Saturday evening was the Founders dinner/dance that was a premier event attended by many of the Founding and Charter members that were instrumental in setting the standards and expectations of what Spring Creek Golf & Country Club has evolved into today.That vision of a friendly, family atmosphere set in motion some 50 years ago is the same vision we hang our hats on to-day.Without it, we would not be the successful, flourishing Spring Creek Golf and Country Club we are.It was a great honor to be able to sit and talk with founding member and first Board President of Spring Creek Golf & Country Club, Al Van Veld-huizen.Amazing stories!

    All the above mentioned would not have been possible without the dedication, time and energy put forth over the past 7-8 months by the 50th Anniversary Committee chaired by Lynette Voss.Lynette and her committee along with Spring Creek management and staff, at-

    tended to every detail that contrib-uted to the best 50th anniversary any one of us could have ever hoped for.Thank you, Lynette, thank you com-mittee members and thank you man-agement and staff.The weekend was truly, a remarkable experience.

    August should be another great month for golf.Mike and his team continue to manage the golf course successfully under the drought re-strictions set forth by the State, County and City of Ripon.Major excavation will be taking place on the #3 green as we speak.Raise your hand if you have birdied the tempo-rary green on #3. Hello, anyone out there?

    Im looking forward to the upcom-ing months and all the events slated for the rest of the year to include both womens and mens Invitation-als.As if Sheas life isnt so busy al-ready, I think this is where he kicks it into high gear.Go Shea!

    Financially, not such a great month for the club but still pacing ahead of budget for the year and still in great shape overall.Please join me in bid-ding our Controller, Robin Velthoen a farewell, and also welcoming our new incoming Controller, Nancy Stokke.Nancy brings many years of experience in accounting and man-aging businesses to Spring Creek Golf & Country Club and will be a great addition to the management team.I also want to thank Sherri Es-parza for accepting a promotion to Office Manager. Sherri is now part of the management team as well.Great team!

    See you all around the Club.Enjoy.

    Rod ReiswigPresident
