September Brings a New Fall Chapter!

I hope everyone had an enjoyable summer with time to take a relaxing break from their everyday, hectic work life.

When the cooler evenings arrive, we know the summer golf league is over, and it’s crunch time to finish up the last of your summer projects because fall is just around the corner. While summer doesn’t officially end until September 22, we all know when the yellow buses return, and the kids and grandkids go off to school, fall is here! For those going off to college, there’s the ritual of move-in day and going away for the first time. Best wishes to all! Willow Bend has a few of our own moving to college this year. Many have been with us for a while and will be deeply missed. If they perform in college as well as they performed here at the Club, they have nothing to worry about!

When September hits, it is a fast-paced race to the end of the year and time to shift into overdrive because the Club becomes even busier. We love the excitement and challenge to be the very best we can be, and look forward to the upcoming events. We are entering the time of year when the schedule fills up very quickly. If you haven’t planned your party or family get-together, please call me to lock in a date ahead of time. We will make every attempt to ensure your special event is memorable. From down-home to elegant, we can and have done it all. Let us worry about the details – you just enjoy your party!

One last sign of fall is the beginning of football season. Here’s a blast from the past…do you remember when the Cleveland Browns were good? I know it’s been a while, but I do. I miss the Bernie Kosar days and actually being expected to win games. I can honestly say with confidence, WAIT FOR THIS YEAR!

Ohio State is Ohio State. They don’t rebuild, they reload full of talent and expectations. If you have never been to an Ohio State game in the Horseshoe, put it on your bucket list. It is truly one of the best fall season experiences. The tradition, the excitement as the team comes out of the tunnel after the band just scripted Ohio, and of course dotting the “I”. You really feel proud to be an Ohioan! You just can’t beat a Saturday fall afternoon in Ohio. In case you would like a schedule, just click on this link Browns/Buckeyes!

It’s time to grab that beer (because I’m in a beer mood), and gather around the tail-gate grill for this month’s fireside chat.

Here is this month’s rundown:

  • Prime Rib nights: Friday, September 7 and 21
  • Fresh Catch features: Friday, September 14 and 28
  • Sunday Brunch: September 16
  • The Clubhouse is closed: Saturday, September 22

Take care, be safe, and may the road rise to meet you!

See you at the Club!
