The golf course is open for regular business for members and guests, including use of carts but they will be issued one per player unless you are playing with a family member. Walking is encouraged, especially since we have a limited number of golf carts.
Starting today, it’s ELECTION TIME FOR OGC BOARD OF DIRECTORS. Every year 3 members of the Board of Directors end their term and 3 new ones are elected after a nomination process so that our Board always has 9 members. This process has been posted on bulletin boards at the club house. The members whose terms are ending are Harold Harsh, Jim Ashby and Gisele Mohler. Nominations of paid OGC members should be submitted to the Pro Shop. They will be accepted until September 16th. If more than 3 members are nominated, we will have an election and voting will begin September 21st and end September 30th.
The SILENT AUCTION of gift certificates to Stonewall Jackson Resort, Pipesteam Resort State Park, Valley View Golf Club, and Cress Creek ends September 3rd. Proceeds will benefit the Oakland Golf Course. Bidding sheets are on a stand-alone bulletin board in the Pro Shop.
Upcoming on Saturday September 26th is the 6th ANNUAL MARINE CORPS Tournament. This tournament benefits Toys for Tots, Healing Waters, It’s In the Bag, and Cindy’s Fund, among others.
