Welcome to Turkey Creek Golf Course
JUST A REMINDER that all membership fees, cart shed dues and annual trail fees are to be paid in full by the March 31st grace period unless on the payment plan. Any member that brings in a new member will receive $150 off their membership as well as the new member getting $150 off their membership. A new member will not be eligible for this discount again until they have been a non-member for at least 3 years. We have cart storage available in the public shed and those that have carts stored in the private shed are required to be a current member. The Sunflower Golf Trail package will continue to be an added perk to memberships at no additional charge. This will allow members to play at other Sunflower Courses at a rate $25 which includes a cart. Only card carrying members are entitled to this rate. Additionally, we are in the process of getting ready for Men's League for the 2015 season! As we have done previously, every team who played last year will have 1st priority in signing up. Because of the limited number of teams, if you split up your team, you will both go on the 1st priority waiting list. If you would like to play again this year, you may call me here at the golf shop, call me or send a text to my cell phone or simply send an e-mail. Please include your name as well as your partners name. John's cell:620-474-4677. If I do not hear from you or your partner by the deadline date & time, it will be assumed that you are not playing. No exceptions. The deadline for sign-up is 5:00 pm on Sunday, April 6. After this time, the remaining spots will be filled with players on the 1st priority waiting list and then from the Secondary waiting list. Schedule, rules, and regulations can be found on the following website: http://web3.golfsoftware.net/2998/. Looking forward to hearing from everyone as well as another fun Men's League season!

Golf Course Maintenance Updates
We are getting ready for the new season. It looks like it may be just around the corner. In the next few weeks, if the forecast is correct, we will begin mowing greens on a regular basis. Grass will green up fast and we will begin mowing as needed through the month of March.
The concrete blocks for the retaining wall on #2 and #4 have started being cast. It will take 3-4 weeks for the blocks to be made and then they will begin to put the footing in. Hopefully the whole process will be done around the 2nd week of April and we will begin the process of fixing the damage done to the course. We have put a dam in between #2 and #9 tee box. This will let us fill the irrigation ponds so we can begin watering the course as needed. DO NOT TAKE CARTS ACROSS THIS DAM.
Porta potties are still on the course and remain open. We will be taking out the old bathrooms and looking at a long term solution. Green aerification will take place on April 21-22.
Just to keep everyone informed, we are installing a gate at the entrance of the parking lot to help keep the facility a little more secure.
Also as just a reminder, for liability purposes, pedestrian traffic and non-golf activities are prohibited.
We look forward to having a great season with mild temperatures, just the right amount of rain and no floods!!!
