All sweeps issued in 2020 will expire at close of business
New Year's Eve - Thursday, Dec. 31
All November sweeps purchases will receive a 15 percent discount which applies to all in stock, regularly priced items. (Cannot apply any other discounts or coupons.)

 

Due to COVID, most golf vendors are sold out of shoes, bags, clubs and some apparel.  Deadline for any special orders is Friday, Nov. 6. To place an order, contact Sheila Diller, Golf Shop Manager by sending an email to sheila.diller@sctexas.org or call 512-948-7564.  Sheila's office is at the Legacy Hills Golf Shop.
Lost and Found?
We recently discovered a new product we think some golfers may find very useful, or funny in a sad way. Let us know if it is something you would like to be carried in the golf shop.
" Get Your Ansel Adams On! "
 
Share your photos from around the golf courses with us. We know some of you are incredible photographers and we would love for you to share your photos with the rest of the community. Please send a photo you shot on one of the three golf courses along with a short description. When sending your picture please send in the highest resolution possible and please provide a title you would like used if selected. We will select one photo per week to post in the Golf Communicator with the photographer’s name and the photo description. 
 
You may send your photo to Josh Lockhart at josh.lockhart@sctexas.org

Getting Prepared for Winter Golf
 
Golf in cold weather: Proper preparation makes it a breeze
 
Sharing Rounds Now Allowed
 
Starting this past Monday, Nov. 2, we began allowing punch card and pass holders to use their rounds and guest passes for other residents. We prefer that you play with the person you are using a round for, but we will permit other situations as long as the person using your rounds has your name and resident I.D. number. Please adhere to the procedure below.
 
IMPORTANT: If you are using another resident's rounds you must check-in, in person, in the golf shop to ensure we have the correct information. Please make sure you allow enough time to check-in with the golf shop prior to your tee time. Thank you for assisting us in this process.
Testing Four Linked Tee Times
For the remainder of the year we have increased the number of linked tee times a group can request from three to four. This is a test period we will use to determine whether or not it is a useful and good fit going forward. 
 
If you have any questions please feel free to contact Josh Lockhart at josh.lockhart@sctexas.org
Be mindful on #15 at Legacy Hills
 
A concern was brought to the staff’s attention regarding safety when playing #15 at Legacy Hills. The concern is that a player may not be visible when they are in the ditch near the tree toward the green. Please be mindful when playing that hole to protect yourself and your fellow players. The staff has placed a number of cart signs at the edge of the fairway near the drop off. The signs are intended to remind players to leave their cart at the top and in the fairway if they need to hit a shot from the ditch near the large tree. This will inform the players behind you that it is not yet clear to hit. When in doubt and you don’t see that group that has been in front of you all day, please check before hitting. Thank you!
