As we move deeper into fall, I want to take a second and reflect on the season and what we’ve accomplished so far at Gold Mountain.
Both golf courses saw some upgrades this year, so let’s start with the Olympic Course.
We were able to purchase new bunker sand in the spring and re-fill all the bunkers throughout the course.
As we did this we were also able to re-build the bunker faces on some of the green side bunkers that get a lot of use.
The Cascade Course received a face lift of sorts this summer, as we changed the mowing patterns throughout the course.
These changes were different on every hole and ranged from a smaller fairway or landing area on some holes to more collection areas and bigger aprons on others.
This new look was intended to change the appearance but also make the golf course play a little faster.
The other significant change on the Cascade course is the addition of a new tee on the 5th hole that will turn the par 4 into a par 5.
We were able to add roughly 100 additional yards to the hole with the additional tee that should be open sometime this month.
The last addition of note on the Cascade Course is the new bathroom located on the 5th tee that was opened in the spring.
Food and beverage saw some very exciting changes this year, the biggest being a complete menu change that we rolled out in July.
This new menu offers a large variety of exciting items like stone fired pizza, street tacos, and hand dipped mini corn dogs to name a few.
Another big addition on the F&B side this year is our new outdoor wedding venue.
This new venue offers a dramatic outdoor space that can seat up to 300, and offers that outdoor Northwest feel.
Pretty cool stuff as I sit down and reflect all that we accomplished, and I can’t tell you how proud of the team I am.
Please make it a point to come out and see all these changes if you haven’t already, and I will see you out here!
All the best,
General Manager, Gold Mountain Golf Club
