This is an exciting time at the Golf Club as we move in a positive direction coming out of the Covid-19 pandemic, and as we continue the renaissance of the Golf Club and the Monarch Grill.
On the golf course, I’m pleased to provide updates on two of this year’s major capital projects. West Coast Golf Construction has been selected as the vendor for the FY21/22 fairway bunker project as well as the drainage project on hole 4. WCGC is the same company that did the greenside bunker project last year and this year’s scope will include the fairway bunkers on holes 1, 10 and 18, including new drainage, sod liners and sand. The hole 4 drainage work scope includes removing vegetation, replacing drainage, re-establishing sub-grade for proper drainage and replacement of sod as necessary. West Coast Golf Construction is scheduled to be onsite starting in September for both projects.
The fourth event in the Monday after the Majors tournament series, Monday after the British Open is scheduled for July 19. The two-person team event includes 18 holes of golf, lunch and prizes.
I’m very excited that our first dinner event featuring live music will return on Saturday, July 3. The Monarch Grill Celebrates America event includes an Americana themed dinner followed by a performance from The River Ratz. We’re excited to have the River Ratz performing for this event as they were scheduled to be our next performers in March of 2020 when Covid-19 required events to be cancelled as we entered the first Solano County Stay Home order.
Save the date for the other Monarch Grill upcoming events this summer:
- July 24 Name That Tune with the UltraSonics
- August 14 Motown Nights with Marquis
- September 4 Labor Day Weekend Bash
- September 25 Pasta with the King (Elvis Impersonator)
Lastly, summer is here and we have already experienced our first major heat wave. When high temperatures are forecasted, our team prepares days in advance with additional irrigating to build up moisture in the soil prior to the highest temperature days. Because of this, we do ask golfers to be aware of wet areas while driving carts on the course in the mornings and to expect dryer conditions in the afternoons. Please follow the 90 degree rule until further notice.
