18 Hole Course
The greens on the 18 hole course have come through the winter very well.We are vertical mowing these greens to remove excess grass and debris. The greens should get up to summer speeds earlier because of the early spring and good conditions.
Fairways are drying quicker than past seasons due to the extensive aerating that was done in the fall.
Course is looking good and should be ready soon, with very good conditions for this time of year.
9 Hole Course
The 9 hole course greens have a little ice injury but this should grow out quickly. These greens take a little more time to dry out because of their composition, but when they do we will vertical mow these green as well.
The new drainage that was installed on 3,4 and 5 late last summer is doing its job and should continue to have positive impacts this season.
You heard it hear, course is coming along and should be ready to open soon.
After an extremely successful line up of social media contests in 2011 we are back in 2012 with some of 2011's most popular contests and some new ones as well.
In order to get the most up to date information about all of our contests please follow us on twitter (www.twitter.com/metcalfegolf) or like us on Facebook (www.facebook.com/metcalfegolf). Remember you don't have to have a Twitter account to see our content, just follow the link.
In addition to Facebook and Twitter you can also check out some videos from the course on our YouTube Page (http://www.youtube.com/metcalfegolf).
So, without further delay, I give you the 2012 Metcalfe Golf Social Media Contests,
Our 35th year anniversary roll back pricing Tweet Time contest in 2011 was so successful we are doing it again in 2012. The Tweet Time is back again for 2012, new and improved
How it Works:
The 2012 Tweet Time won`t be one tee time, but rather a time slot. We have broken the day into 3 time slots; Before 8am, Between 8am - 12pm and After 12pm. The time slot will be announced every Thursday, via Twitter and Facebook.
How do you book the tweet time? Just go to our twitter (www.twitter.com/metcalfegolf) or our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/metcalfegolf) on Thursday afternoons, find the posted time slot, be the 1st to call the pro shop and select any available tee time within that time slot.
The Tweet Time will be limited to 1 caller per day and the cost will be $99.00 plus taxes for 4 green fees, 2 carts and 2 - 50% off appetizer coupons.
Depending on when you play, the savings between regular price and the tweet times range from $132.00 per foursome (prime time) to $100.00 per foursome (Weekends after 2pm). This doesn’t include the appetizer savings.
Facebook Photo Contest
Like the tweet time, the Facebook photo contest was a success in 2011, and as such we are bringing it back in 2012, with a twist.
For 2012, each month will have a different theme. The theme of the photos will be announced at the beginning of each month. The winner will be drawn from all the entries each month, with the number of likes your photo getting equaling the number of ballots you get in the draw.
How do you enter? All you have to do is go to our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/metcalfegolf) and upload a photo that matches the month's theme. If you don't have a Facebook account you can still enter by emailing us a photo (email@example.com) and we will post it for you.
Each monthly winner will receive 2 free 18 hole green fees (must be used together). You can only win once during the season, but can enter as many times as you like each month.
Some of the themes that you may see are:
Landscapes - pictures of the course itself
Wildlife - pictures of the animals that inhabit the course
Family and Friends - show us your family and friends playing the course
Event photos - did you have a tournament, wedding, or other event at Metcalfe, show us some photos from it.
While we did have some trivia scattered throughout the season last year, we have turned it into a full blown contest for 2012.
Look for trivia questions on Facebook and Twitter throughout the week. Be the 1st to respond with the correct answer and you will Metcalfe coupons (buy 1 get 1 50% off, buy 1 get 1 free, buy 3 get 1 free, etc.). You can only win once a month.
Youtube Video Contest
A brand new contest for 2012!
Shoot a video at Metcalfe golf, doesn’t matter how long it is, but make sure it features the golf course or the restaurant (Hickories). Post the video to Youtube and make sure you include “Metcalfe Golf” in the title or description and tags/labels of the video.
Send us an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to let us know you posted a video and we will enter your name in a monthly draw for 2 free 18 hole rounds (must be used together). You can only win once during the season, but can enter as many times as you like each month.
