Spring arrived about a week and a half ago, however, if you are a golfer, you know that the “unofficial” start to the season arrives when the azaleas start to bloom and Jack Nicklaus & Gary Player hit the commemorative first tee shot at Augusta National early Thursday morning! There is a buzz in the air this year as the golfers descend on Magnolia Lane. Tiger is showing signs of his former self, Phil has recently found the winners circle, and a plethora of young hungry tour stars, like Ricky Fowler look to capture the green jacket late Sunday afternoon! It certainly sets up to be a fun and exciting few days of golf to kick-off the season!
Just like the buzz at Augusta, there is also a buzz in the air here at Blue Ridge Shadows! It has been quite some time that a season has arrived here on Shadows Drive with as much anticipation! We are excited that the sand trap renovation project that began in July of 2016 has finally been completed! The white sand not only looks great, but offers the best playing surface of any of the clubs bunkers in the Shenandoah Valley! You can see the dramatic difference below:
Besides the sand trap renovations, On March 19th our brand new golf cart fleet arrived and was pressed into service! The 70 cart fleet of Club Cars is a major upgrade over their predecessors, and come complete with rain covers, coolers, and USB charger ports that will allow guests to plug in their phones for charging or listening to their favorite tunes during their round. When you are Blue Ridge Shadows, clearly you go with the sapphire blue cart, gray seats, and black tops! These carts are definitely sharp looking:
As you can see, there are lots of reasons for the excitement and anticipation for the 2018 here In the Shadows! In addition to the upgrades with the golf course and golf carts, we are still offering the area’s best values in terms of membership! Our Shadows Club program is only $99 and offers one (1) complimentary green fee with cart upon registration! Shadows Club rates are some of the most aggressive in the area and typically are under $30 seven days a week (excluding weekend/holiday tee times before 11 am), including a $19 twilight rate that is available to members at 3 pm every day!
Be sure to check in on our website calendar or Facebook events as they will be updated with various charity and club sponsored events that will offer fun competition all year long! We will also be adding a Tuesday night league and we will continue our Thursday night Burgers, Birdies, & Brews this season!
With renovated sand traps, new golf carts, great membership offers, and fun competitive events, Blue Ridge Shadows has something for everyone in 2018! We will look forward to seeing you soon, In the Shadows!!!
