TOP STORY >>Deer Run Golf Course still in play

The 314th Services Squadron Hangar 1080 project transforming the old PROPS lounge into PROPS Pro Shop is under way.
This week, furniture was relocated and the 314th Civil Engineering Squadron members removed bar sinks, coolers, capped water drain lines, and erected drywall. The only reminder of what the room was previously, will be the large C-130 props. The PROPS Pro Shop is expected to open its doors on May 15.

The new golf pro shop is not the only thing under renovation. Many golfers are excited about being able to play on all 18 holes of the newly renovated greens at Deer Run Golf Course.

“The golf course is in fine condition for this time of season due to the warmer temperatures this past March,” said Jeff Melton, Deer Run Golf Course Manager. “The back nine greens look very good and are putting nicely. We may be able to open play on all greens sooner than previously expected.”

Until that time, golfers are not falling short on golf events to tune up their game for summer. A two-person scramble tournament will be held April 21-22.

“All experience levels are welcome to play. The event will be flighted, which gives everyone an opportunity to win,” Mr. Melton said. Learn more about the game, by taking advantage of the golf lessons and clinics still available at the course.

A clinic catering to women will be conducted 5:30-6:30 p.m. April 23, 25 and 27. The cost is $10 for three hours of instruction.

“If you ever have been slightly interested in the game of golf, this is a fantastic time for you to learn. Simply call the Pro Shop at 987-6825,” said Mr. Jeff Melton.

Finally, the Duffer’s Inn last day of operation will be May 6. It will close in order to allow the staff to start training in Hangar 1080’s kitchen. Meals will be available at the new Hangar 1080 May 7. More details will be available in the coming weeks.
