A Word from Ken Galloway, General Manager, The Royal Golf Club

Greetings and Happy New Year from The Royal Club!

I hope you all had a great Holiday experience this year. It’s hard to believe that it’s been three months already since I started. Even though the course is closed, our team has been very busy planning and preparing for the 2019 golf season. If you haven’t reserved your membership place for 2019 yet, you should do so now. We have a great lineup of events and activities already in place for our members, with more to come. Our second year is going to be bigger and better than ever.

I’m shocked to say that we have very little snow on the course. This is, after all, January in Minnesota. Instead, we’ve had rain and a number of days in the 40s. I don’t know about you, but I’d still like to see a big dump of snow. It would be good for our course and it might open up other possibilities, such as cross-country skiing, of which I am a huge fan.

On January 10, we have an exclusive cocktail party here at the Club for members and residents only. If you were a 2018 member, a new 2019 member, or a resident of The Royal Club, you should have received an email invitation by now. If not, please contact me at the Club and we’ll make sure you’re taken care of. This will be a nice, casual evening to enjoy some cocktails and appetizers and meet some of the ownership and staff, along with your fellow neighbors and other members. It should be a great night. Make sure to rsvp if you haven’t already.

There’s some great information on the web site regarding League play for the upcoming season, as well as lessons. If those are activities you’re interested in for this summer, check out the site for more details. Both lessons and regular play with others are great ways to trim strokes off your score. It’s not too soon to sign up and start preparing for the season ahead.

Enjoy your winter. Before you know it, we’ll be teeing it up once again!
