The weather this week has been quite nice and as this picture from Tuesday shows, the snow is beginning to melt away and reveal some green grass. If you are like me, once some green grass is visible, the itch to get back out on the golf course isn't too far away. However, it is only the end of February so I am sure there will be a little more snow but the green grass does provide hope of an early start. Follow us on Facebook or Twitter for updates.

2018 Ottawa Golf Expo
The Club will once again have a booth at the Ottawa-Gatineau Golf Expo at the EY Centre near the airport on March 9 & 10. Drop by to say hello and for a chance try to win a prize. Visit the expo's website
for more information or to purchase tickets.
To any members attending the show, if you would be interested in volunteering to help out at our booth, please let me know. I am looking for a few volunteers to help greet people and talk up our wonderful club to show visitors who may be potential Members and green fee players. It could be for an hour, a few hours or the day, any help is welcomed and appreciated. If you are interested, please call me at the Club or send me an email.
Thank you from the New GM
I want to express my gratitude to Jim Lemenchick and the Board of Directors for the opportunity to be the General Manager here at the Renfrew Golf Club. I look forward to working with the Board and the Membership to continue the great traditions of the club here and help it grow in the future. Increasing participation amongst junior golfers and current non-golfers in the area will be one of my goals as the younger generations are the future of the game and potential long-term Club members.
I would also like to thank everyone who has taken the time to welcome me to the Club this past week. Whether you did it in person or over the phone, I appreciate the warm welcome. I am excited for the 2018 golf season to arrive and the opportunity to meet all the Members and seeing golfers around the clubhouse and out on the golf course.
