Mother Nature has finally decided that she was going to cooperate here at The Mill. After weeks (actually months, to be honest) of rain, the club has had a nice little dry stretch the past week, and things are really starting to take shape!
Course conditions continue to improve on a daily basis, and our maintenance staff has been working hard to get caught up on all the mowing. The greens have really bounced back from their spring algae issues, and we feel like we are in a really good position to finish the season strong, and offer our players great conditions the second half of the year.
There is lots of stuff going on at The Mill, as summer nears the mid way point. The last weekend in July we will be celebrating Christmas! Yes we know it is the summer, but what a great time to take advantage of some good deal in our Pro Shop (40% off all items excluding golf balls and golf gloves), and start that Holiday shopping for your favorite golfer a bit early! We also will have some great golf deals that weekend, so be sure to check out our website before booking.
Copper Cards are officially back at Copper Mill. We are offering both a Regular Copper Card $69, as well as a Senior Copper Card for all of you that are 55 and up for $49. The program has been revamped a bit, so the more you play, the more you save. A FREE ROUND still comes standard with the purchase of the card, and then there is a set discount of around 20% off rounds 2 trough 5. starting with the 6th round, the discount jumps to around 40% off the regular rack rates (discount percentages were based off our Regular Weekday Rack Rate, and may vary slightly for other types of rounds).
Two upcoming events to mark your calendar for our the World's Largest Golf Outing, in support of the Wounded Warrior Project on August 3rd, and the Copper Mill Couples two day scramble on the weekend of August 22nd & 23rd.
The WLGO will feature a Hole-in-One opportunity sponsored by Superior Ford of Zachary where the winner can take home a car! Complimentary beverages will be provided on the beverage cart by Coca Cola (non alcoholic) and Mockler Beverage of Baton Rouge (Budweiser, Bud Light, and Michelob Ultra). Mockler will also be sponsoring a Putt for a Pint contest on the putting green prior to tee off. We are still working on other on course vendors, and we have been very fortunate to receive some really great door prizes and hole sponsors. Now all we need are golfers. Please support this worthwhile event. You can find out more information or register at www.worldslargestgolfouting.com.
The Copper Mill Couples Scramble is always a well attended event, and the Copper Mill LGA always put on a great show. The weekend consists of a complimentary practice round on Friday (cart fee is required), a Social Mixer Friday evening, greens fees with cart and lunch, both Saturday and Sunday, and a Dinner Dance Saturday Night! The group is split into flights (based on score)following the Saturday round, so everyone should have an opportunity to compete within their flight on Sunday. The entry fee for the event is only $275/couple!
Finally, we have added Happy Hour service in the Palmetto Grill Wednesday through Friday! We have great drinks specials ($2 Domestics) and $5 Appetizers (the fried pickles are great) starting at 4 pm. Come out and enjoy twilight golf and grab a quick bite and a brew while you are at it!
We are always adding new events to our schedule, so be sure to check the calendar on the website or stay tuned to the blog for updates!
