Welcome Lisa Wildrick!
The Fairfield Golf & Country Club is extremely pleased to formally introduce Lisa Wildrick as our new Executive Chef & General Manager! Lisa comes to us from the Big Sky Resort in Montana where she was the Executive Chef for two of their restaurants. She also was key in getting the inaugural Big Sky “Vine & Dine” event organized with Master Sommeliers Fred Dame & Jay Fletcher and Executive Chef for Google, Scott Giambastiani. Lisa’s career has been spent at resorts and clubs surrounded by great food and fine wines – her father is even a sommelier! Legend has it as a child she learned to master a corkscrew before she figured out how to pour milk out of a carton.
Lisa has been working hard in her first few weeks coming up with a new menu for the summer months ahead and we should be getting a taste of that very soon. We are very excited to have her join our Club and excited to see what she has in store for us!
Membership Drive 2015
Current promotion – $100 food credit to new members and a bonus $100 food credit to their sponsors. Nothing can advertise to new members like the excitement of our current members – so tell a friend and you can both enjoy some free food! This $100 incentive will run until the end of June. And don’t forget that the member who sponsors the most new recruits before September 30th will receive $1000 in free food from the club.
Memorial Day Weekend Couples Golf Tournament 5/24
Take a break from the grill, the beach, and the kids, grab that significant other, and hit the course on Sunday May 24th! Which couple will be crowned the best golfing team in Fairfield? Which couple will hack around but have the most fun? And which couple will entertain us all by taking things too seriously and fighting over a dumb missed putt? All these questions and more answered this Memorial Day!
Ladies Night Every Tuesday
Who says golfing is for men only? Every Tuesday at 5:30 the ladies take over the course to play some best shot and enjoy dinner & drinks afterwards. All skill levels are welcomed, as long as you can have a good time.
Stag Night Every Thursday
Seriously though, on Stag Night golfing is for men only. 🙂 Teams are drawn at 5:30 for a handicapped format that allows even golfers with my pitiful skill level to compete. Afterwards we hang out to recap over dinner & drinks and a Texas Hold’em tournament usually breaks out by 8 o’clock. Every time you golf in Stag Night your name is entered into a drawing to be held later this fall for all kinds of great prizes!
We Are A Few Weeks From The Pool Opening!
Summer is getting closer. Finally. The cover will be coming off the pool in the next couple weeks – I’m sure Sim will be recruiting for some helpers.
Welcome New 2015 Members
Jeff & Loren Town
Chad & Julie Huff
Mike & Dawn McKay
Mike & Michelle Greiner
Scott Willman & Vanessa Young
Adam & Vanessa Pohren
If you don’t know these new members, please go out of your way to welcome them to the club. If you do know them, please introduce them to the other members. Especially that Adam Pohren character, he’s very new to our clubhouse. The Membership Drive will be a huge focal point in 2015 with a stated goal of 50 new members. That’s an intimidating number that we will only achieve with the help of the entire membership working towards that goal. One of our greatest selling points will be an active and friendly clubhouse full of happy members, and that’s where all of you come in. Continue to come to all of our events this year, have a blast, and show our non-members why we have the best club around.
