Waverly Golf Course hires Jordan David

10556218_851987568145991_5120556041541139520_n  I am pleased and honored to announce that the City of Waverly has hired Jordan David as the new Pro Shop Manager at the Waverly Golf Course.  JD is a 2011 W-SR Graduate.  He will graduate this year from UNI with a Major in Movement and Exercise with a coaching endorsement.  JD has been my trusted right hand dude for the past 4 years and will only add to the Pro Shop Operations at Waverly.  He has some great people skills.  With the staff that we have in place, he will hit the ground running.  I am so excited to have JD be your next golf professional, once he becomes one, at the Waverly Golf Course.
The Pro Shop hours will be from 9 am to dusk.  Come buy your season pass, trail fee, handicap, city league and above all come wish JD the best as he will make Waverly proud – even better than when he was throwing up 3-Pointers on the High School Basketball team in Des Moines back from 2008-2011.

Are you ready for some of this WHITE STUFF here in Iowa?  I AM NOT READY FOR IT.  It does look like it is heading our way tonight and tomorrow.  With our LACK OF SNOW – be sure to be safe and allow more time to drive as those new AND old drivers may not be ready for the slick streets yet.

No snow days so far – that is a positive note for our Iowa golf courses.  Gets those golfers on the golf course sooner rather than the 4th of July.  LOL!

This video was from the Winter of 2014 while our daughter, Stephanie, videotaped from our garage.  Then being the joker that I am I had to HIT HER WITH A LITTLE SNOW each time.

We decided to take a little time off from writing on our…

over the Christmas and Holiday Break.  But we are recharged and ready to start engaging you at the Waverly Golf Course like we did the past few winters.

I did look at one of our golf friends, voice of the Panthers – Gary “THE SPORTS GUY” Rima newest website.  Pretty good stuff on all things in Iowa sports.  Put it on your favorite list.

 

One more week

One more week

IMG_3157  Terri and I are empty nesters so we went small this year – little tree by the TV.  Do you suppose she put it there to remind me that it was Christmas?

So just like Terri, little things come in BIG packages – including the Spirit of Christmas.  It is the thought that counts – correct?

  • The spirit is BIG in our hearts as we celebrate Christ’s Birth

It is hard to believe but only one more week until Christmas Day.  As we get older it sure seems as if the time just flies by from year to year.  So enjoy them as much as one can.

So don’t forget to get out and buy that last minute gift for that person dear to your heart.  For all those “secret Santa’s” in the world, be nice to each other – treat other’s as you wish to be treated.

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and Happy Holidays to everyone.
