Pro Notes: April 2019

Our new assistant golf professional is here! Emily grew up in Bend and attended Bend Senior High School, where she captained the girls’ golf team that won the 1992 State Championship. After graduating as class president, she attended Washington State University on a golf and leadership scholarship, graduating with a degree in English/professional writing. Emily grew up in a golf family from the Pacific Northwest, learning the business from her father, who was an award- winning PGA Professional. Most recently, she worked at Black Butte Ranch for 15 years, serving many roles including golf shop office manager, and PGA Golf Professional prior to coming to Bend Golf Club. She is obtaining her Certified Professional Status in General Management through the PGA of America, running a 501 (C) (3) in Terry R. Anderson’s name to benefit Bend charities, and studying the business and game of golf. Emily is married to Jeff Stewart, retired Sergeant Major of Marines.

I would also like to remind you that we will be using ForeTees as our tee time reservation system exclusively from now on. If you have not logged in and looked around the site please do so. Remember that your username is your club number and your password is your last name. Once logged in it will ask you to change your password. It is very easy to navigate and there is also a help bar if you have any questions. This will also be the site that we use for all event signups (you’ll see a bar at the top that says “events”). They also make an app for your Apple or Android phone that is also very easy to use and has some great features so I encourage you to download that also. If you have any questions regarding ForeTees, please do not hesitate to call the shop and we will be happy to help.

A lot of new merchandise will be landing in April so please stop by and take a look at all the latest and greatest this new season has to offer. We will not be real deep in clubs — mostly just wedges and putters — but we will have demo sets in most of the major manufactures including Cobra, Callaway, Mizuno, Titleist, Taylor Made, and Ping. So you will be able to hit just about anything you want and then we can special order.

It will be great to see everyone once the weather breaks. We’re all looking forward to a great season. Cheers!

John Thorsnes
Head Professional
