The View Point
"If I could have breakfast with that view every day, I would! The food is as good as the view - EXCELLENT! Thanks!" A. Rouse, Director of San Ramon, CA
August, 2014 Newsletter
They say that July 2014 was the hottest July ever known in Mount Shasta. We don’t know who “they” are, or where their office is located, but “they” seem to be very accurate. “They” must have been around here for a long time to have that sort of knowledge. Golfers from Redding, Red Bluff, Corning, and Cottonwood drove up here to enjoy the cooler temperatures.
Hanna and Bobbi provided friendly service by showing up with the beverage cart just in time….every time.
British Open Sweeps
The Masters Sweeps in April, the U.S. Open Sweeps in June, and the British Open Sweeps in July are all popular events for our members and guests. As a participant, your net score on tournament day is combined with your PGA partner’s weekend total. This year, Daniel Sanchez shot a net 62 and was paired with Chris Kirk (PGA). The team total was 199 and good enough for first place. Theron Afseth fired a net 68 and got help from Angel Cabrerra for a team total of 205 and second place. Third place went to Dave Turk (68) and Rory McIlroy teamed up for a total of 207. Dave Turk had a good day and also won “closest to the hole” on #5. Theron Afseth won the KP prize on holes #7 and #17. Jim Clark won the closest to the hole on #13 by simply making a smooth “hole in one”. Now that’s hard to beat or match.
The Hole In One Club
Rick Merritt celebrated yet another “Hole in One” here at Mount Shasta Resort when he “aced” hole #13 with a left handed #9 iron on July 6th. Rick has made his share of good golf shots and his seven handicap will attest to that. His shot never left the flagstick and went 125 yards into the hole. He did the customary thing and bought a round in the lounge for his playing partners who witnesses the golf shot. Rick was quick to remind us that he had a perfect lie.

By the way, we sent him everything he requested and much more.
We invited him to return at any time for a free golf lesson and an opportunity to play golf with the “Old Pro”.
Junior Golf BBQ
July 21st was the date of our “End of Summer Junior Golf BBQ.”
Mike Libby grilled up some hot dogs on our big BBQ pit, and a popular raffle followed lunch. We had a scramble tournament for juniors, ranging from seven to seventeen, and they rocked.
Play golf at Mount Shasta Resort and bring your camera.
