This year we have seen more users than ever before. The congestion and varying user groups have caused some hurdles that City staff is trying to remedy for your safety. We've tried a few things and we aren't even sure we are done, but for now, here's what to know about the Golf Course pathways:
McCall Ladies Golf Association Launches Paver Project
The McCall Ladies Golf Association is selling engraved pavers just in time to be a unique Christmas gift! An outside area, known as the McCall Golf Club Plaza Project has been approved by the City of McCall. It is near the McCall golf course clubhouse and will serve as a public gathering space to enjoy the ambiance of the golf course. Engraved pavers will be a permanent focal point of the Plaza Project and can be purchased by anyone wanting to recognize their connection to the golf course or McCall. Donors can choose to engrave their names, a family name, or anyone they choose to honor, This is also a great way to donate to our local golf course and memorialize a loved one or even your favorite dog who loves to walk the cart paths in the winter. A certificate of purchase will be issued that can be wrapped as a gift or easily inserted in a Christmas card or emailed to the recipient. Anticipated completion of the project is on or before spring, 2022. The donation for the engraved paver is $101.75 and can be obtained by filling out the attached form and mailing it with your check payable to McCall Men's Golf Association to the McCall Ladies Golf Association, P.O. Box 661, McCall, Idaho. If you have questions you can inquire by email to email@example.com or call 208-473-8705.
Location: Northeast of the McCall Golf Club clubhouse and adjacent to the golf cart trail next to the Birch 1 tee box. The approximate 1050 square foot location is surrounded by paved cart access leading to and returning from all three nine-hole courses and the clubhouse.
The pavers will be available to the public for engraving. It is anticipated that people with a connection to the McCall golf course or McCall will purchase an engraving for themselves or others they want to honor. The golf course superintendent currently maintains memorials created on the course (trees, bushes, plaques, etc.), and this project would alleviate that maintenance work for future memorials.
.12,. The sale of the engraved pavers will generate additional income for golf course improvement s for many years.
f. The site will have one or more movable benches and tables for golfers, the public, and small gatherings to sit and enjoy the outdoor golf course atmosphere. Currently, there is no location for this activity. The north and east seat wall will provide additional seating for golfers waiting to tee off on Birch 1, or whose tee times have been delayed.
d. The project will be an attractive addition to the golf course. In addition to the movable bench and table, the site will have movable bushes and flowers, giving it a park-like setting. During winter the benches, tables, bushes, and flowers will be removed to provide a location for snow storage. The large rock at the location will remain.
e. The site will also provide a space for the club restaurant to locate a temporary food and beverage cart during tournaments.
McCall Golf Club will be aerifying greens Tuesday, September 29th & Wednesday, September 30th. There has been a delay in aerifying due to weather. All 27 holes are open and 18 holes un-aerified the 24th through the 28th. Why now? In the current season, we were unable to aerify greens as usual in the Spring, and with the Golf Club seeing a heavy amount of play, the greens need attention. By aerifying now, the course will remain in good shape through October and be set up for a healthy Winter. Thank you for your patience.
