Golf course update: the waters of Rainy River
have receded and our #8 green and #9 teeing areas are no
longer under water. That's the good news. The bad news
is they are not yet playable so both holes are playing
as par 3's. #8 with a temporary tee and green and #9
with a temporary tee playing to the regular green. We
hope to be back to regular playing conditions by the
Smokey Bear Invitational (see below).
We have the busiest week in the history of FCC coming
soon and hope that you and/or your family members can be
a part of the events. You can get more information or
register by calling the pro shop at 218-283-4491.
July 11th is the Ross Memorial Tournament. An
individual stroke play event where the scoring is
determined by a blind draw ABCD format using the low 3
of 4 balls. Some people use it as a practice round for
the Smokey Bear while others play in the Ross only. It's
a big field with great payouts and a cash skins game.
The Ross Memorial also benefits Koochiching Hospice.
July 12th-13th is our premiere event the Smokey Bear
Invitational. An individual stroke play tournament
with players being flighted after day one based on their
gross score. A steak dinner is served Saturday night and
people just have a great time.
July 14th-16th is the third and final FCC Junior
Clinic. After having 66 kids in the last one this is
sure to be full also. The reason so many kids love these
clinics is because they are fun! Our staff does a great
job and you just won't find a better junior program
July 17th (in the morning) is the Coca-Cola Junior
Tournament. For any of the kids that were in our
junior program (and those that weren't) this is a can't
miss event. Everyone gets a tee gift, a free lunch and a
chance to win great prizes in our drawings. For the
older kids it's a chance to earn the title of Coca-Cola
July 17th (in the evening) is our premiere couples
event the Miller Lite Couples Classic. Beginning at
5:00 p.m. it's a 9 hole four person scramble format with
a casual dinner to follow. Lots of prizes and
complimentary beverages on the course. Green fee and
cart fee are included.
July 18th is the Rec Hockey Scramble and July 24th is
the Rainy Lake Medical Center Foundation Golf Classic.
Both are 9 hole scramble events to raise funds and are
fun to play in and support.
We have an informal couples night going on Thursday
now so if you are interested just check-in the pro shop
by 5:30 and we'll introduce you to the couples that have
been playing on Thursday nights already.
Remember, golf is just a fun game that you can play with
your family, your friends or by yourself. We hope to see
you at FCC soon!
