May 2017 AGCWA News Posted May 1, 2017


Hope many of you have been out on the course between rain showers this month. Niners and Twilight League have started and it sounds like sunny weather will be here for at least a few days this week.
Jen and Sandy are planning a 9 hole tournament for Memorial Day, Mon. May 29 to start off our season. Registration is $10 with a 1 pm starting time. More details will follow.
When you’re at the course, please take a look at our sign up sheet for tournament committees on our bulletin board in the Pro Shop. You’ll see that the two 18 hole Cup tournaments in June are coming up quickly and volunteers are needed to organize them. In addition, our annual Guest Day is scheduled for Thurs. June 22. For new members, this is not a Twilight League event, but rather an afternoon when AGC women members invite guests, which include ” league only members” to share a fun round of golf and a good meal. Please consider signing up to work on one of these upcoming events; it spreads out the work if every member volunteers for one committee. I have folders filled with information to guide you and will do whatever I can to help.

2017 Springfest I Resuls


The Course is Open for Play Posted April 12, 2017


If you didn’t get your dues in by April 1st, we would still like for all our members to renew and take advantage of the benefits and league sign-ups.  New members are entitled to our new member specials (see here for details).  Last but not least, the public is welcome to play and make time for 9!  Plan your business or group outings now (see here for details).

See you on the course!



Saturday April 8th, forty-five members donated several hours of their time to assist Carl Teschke and his crew with some basic spring cleanup chores. It was an excellent show of support by our members and reflects the special care the membership has for the club. During the cleanup, nearly the entire course was raked to remove broken branches, twigs, pine needles and cones, etc. Time allowed for sand trap work and cleanup of some tee boxes, along with chain sawing some blowdown trees, including a large one that was laying across the No. 2 tee box. Special kudos to Gene Tansey who completed the chain saw work. Following the work, the volunteers were treated to pizza and beverages in the clubhouse. The volunteer effort saved the greens crew nearly 120 hours in labor, which is just outstanding. The club extends its sincere gratitude for the valuable time the members donated.

AGC Women’s Association will be holding their annual spring brunch and scramble on April 30 at Johnny’s.  Sign up for the Thursday Twilight League must be completed prior to April 27 since Twilight League will begin on May 4.  Additional information will follow in April about signing up for the league, brunch and scramble.

Contact Ann Kieser at or 413-253-0973 for further questions.


The 2017 Tournament Schedule has been provided here, and a copy can be printed out from the web site or picked up at the Pro Shop.  While the 2017 opening date has not been finalized, we should be opening in mid-April or so.  Carl Teschke, our superintendent, will be opening up the practice green and any holes as soon as allowable.  Basically, we need to sustain some warm nights to allow a reseeding effort to take hold.  The reseeding has been  applied to repair the fairways from the damage experienced from the drought, and we want the germination to have a chance before play takes place – your patience is appreciated in this matter!!


Current membership is the most successful means to recruit new members for next season.  If you have people that are interested in joining, please bring them by the course and play a round of golf with us.  Below is the New Membership Program for this year.

The cost covers membership for the entire 2017 season for those that qualify as new members.
