Words from the Pro
Happy New Year to All,
We hope that everyone had a great Christmas and that 2018 will be a great year for all of us. We would like to thank everyone that attended our annual Christmas party on December 7th. A good time and good food was had by all. In the near future, we will be receiving new merchandise for the spring. New colors and styles for ladies and gentlemen, along with new styles of golf shoes from Foot Joy. If you decide on some new clubs this year, give us the opportunity to take care of your needs. We have accounts with all of the major golf club manufacturers and we WILL be competitive with the golf discount outlets regarding pricing in comparison. With vendors unveiling their new 2018 equipment, we are in the process of lining up demo days with various vendors for the spring. As the dates are confirmed, we will notify you.
The driving range fee for 2018 is due now. The fee for the single membership is $115.00 and the family membership is $165.00. This covers unlimited use of hitting range balls throughout the year. A letter will be provided to all that sign up detailing policies and procedures for your driving range membership. This is a fantastic way to give you the incentive to work on your game and shave strokes off of your score.
For those signing up on the handicap system in 2018, the deadline is February 15th. The fee is $25.00 per person as it was last year. If you have not signed up by February 15th, your name will be taken off of the handicap roster.
Congratulations are in order for Paul Harrington. He made a hole in one on hole #4 (a par 4 hole) on December 22nd. This is a miraculous thing, but what is so amazing about this is that Paul made a hole in one on hole #4 on September 29, 2008! A very special congratulations to you!!!
The maintenance staff and myself would like to thank all for your Christmas gift to us. It is greatly appreciated and we hope that you have a Happy New Year!

On January 27th, we will be hosting a fundraiser for the Manning High School golf team. The event is a 4 person scramble with a 10:30 shotgun start. Entry fee is $50 per person with proceeds going towards the golf team for the upcoming spring season. Food will be served afterwards, courtesy of Kenny Dykes. Entry forms are available in the pro shop, grab a foursome for a really great cause. Wyboo Golf Club is proud to be the home course for the Manning High School golf team.
Tip From The Pro:
When hitting shots, focus on accelerating the club head through the golf ball. Do not swing harder, but keep the club head moving through impact and into your follow through. I see too many golfers that get in the habit of decelerating through the ball and this throws your timing and solid impact off.
A reminder that if you recruit a new member, you and the new member will receive one month of free dues!
19th – Tri County Seniors 10:00 Shotgun Course open at 2:00
27th – Manning High School Golf Team Fundraiser 10:30 Shotgun Course open
In closing, Wyboo Golf Club would like to wish all of you a Happy New Year and we hope that 2018 will be a great year for everyone!
