GM: March 2020

Earliest opening ever?? Compared with the last several years, it certainly is. We’re all enthused to know that the golf course is in excellent condition. Speaking of excellent, I wanted to take a moment to recognize my team.

With new members joining us all the time, it’s important for everyone to know their points of contact. You’re always welcome to reach out to me directly, but frequently I’ll refer you to one of my staff members.

Scott Moffenbeier has the golf course, as we all know, but we also have the grounds committee. Suggestions for improvements and setups goes through the grounds committee, and your grounds liaison is Susanna Ross. Opening time, frost delays, etc. are all managed by the golf shop, so please refer to the golf shop or call the frost line at 541-385-1973. If you have the ForeTees mobile app for iOS or Android, we can push notifications about delays or other last-minute changes directly to your phone. This truly is the best and easiest way to manage your golf experience here at BGC.

Our head golf professional, Emily Anderson, is your point person for all things golf! Emily and her team are responsible for tee times, handicaps, tournaments, junior golf, merchandise, and all facets of the club that revolve around your playing experience. Reach her at 541-322-5770 or emilya@bendgolfclub.com.

Chef Darrin Hauser works hard to ensure that we have a great cuisine and that the food comes out in a timely manner and with his personal touch. This year, he will be involved with the Mulligans setup and will continue to provide a great menu at an outstanding value. For those of us who have eaten out recently, our pricing is second to none. Reach out to Darrin with questions or comments at chef@bendgolfclub.com.

Christie Henson, our banquet manager, manages the front of the house in our dining operation. She’s your point person for reservations, service, banquets, and menus, as well as wine tasting and jazz nights. Reach her at 541-322-5776 or christieh@bendgolfclub.com.

Margaret Collier, our activities director, does it all for our athletic center. She manages tennis, schedules, rules, and sets the schedules for swim lessons, hours, and pool parties. She and Christie collaborate on bingo nights. Contact Margaret directly at 541-322-5760 or margaretc@bendgolfclub.com.

Karen Goodman, our finance director, is your primary contact for all billing-related questions such as account information, charges, and ACH options. Her charge is to make sure that any questions are answered quickly. Karen wears several hats besides billing, including accounts payable, accounts receivable, and the general ledger. Contact Karen at 541-322-5761 or kareng@bendgolfclub.com.

From a communication perspective, our goal is to get back with you within 48 hours. We try to respect everyone’s time away from the club with their families. Emergencies do arise and we will get on those right away.

Thanks for all your support. 2020 is going to be a great year!

Jeff Keller,
BGC General Manager
