After an unexpectedly mild winter and a perfectly deplorable early spring, the golf course is finally greening and firming. Under the leadership of our new Club Manager, Danielle Infelise, the Clubhouse has been cleaned and spiffed up. In the Pro Shop there are new sleeves of golf balls, tees, golf gloves and Island Country Club logoed hats ready for purchase. Our new Kitchen Head, Annie Rodriguez (yes, the Annie of Annie’s), has been adding exciting and delicious new items to our luncheon menu. The Great Room is ready for a social calendar with events literally every week of the season. The new roof on the Barn is done. The Club website is being updated regularly and THE CALENDAR WORKS. It’s the start of the Island Country Club’s 91st season – and we are ready to welcome you back to the Best Little Country Club in America.
Opening Day was Friday, May 10 at 8:00 AM. At that time the United States flag was raised, the registers turned on, memberships and merchandise can be purchased, beverages will be served, non-members must pay greens fees, all players must sign in on the sheets adjacent to the Pro Shop counter, the Rules of Golf of the United States Golf Association must be used and golf scores are to be entered for all rounds played. Other than that not much is happening.
Welcome the New Clubhouse Team that Danielle has put together. These are experienced people who know their jobs and, as important, really care about member and customer service. For more than a decade Danielle was a manager at one of the largest restaurants and bars in Aroostook County. Annie Rodriquez was the owner and chef at Annie’s Restaurant in Stonington, which was justifiably famed for its outstanding pizza, sandwiches and Italian specialties. Joining Danielle on the Pro Shop side are Nicole Nolan, who served in the Pro Shop last summer and Aimee Cardoza, who many of you know from her prior service in the Club working in the kitchen with her grandmother, Janet Snowden. This is a lean, smart, friendly team dedicated to making this season a successful one for each member and for the Club. As you come in please give them your best welcome.
Food Service begins June 17, with a full lunch menu served at the Great Room counter from 11-AM - 2PM. Until then we having a "soft opening" with a limited cooked menu and pre-prepared sandwiches and salads, beverages and snacks as well as occasional surprise desserts, an Annie specialty. The pre-prepared sandwiches and snacks are available at the Pro Shop Counter afternoons after 2 until closing at 8:00PM.
Make it a Great 91st Season!
