Board candidates for WLGC

To date there are four candidates filing for the two vacant board seats for the 2023-25 years. Tracy Whisenand, Bill LeLeivre, Monte Gilman and David Scott are the current candidates. Absentee ballots will be available in the Golf Shop starting on Saturday, Oct. 1. The voting will be completed at the annual meeting where the candidates will be selected.

Remodel drawings

The drawings for the bag room remodel are on display in the lounge area of the clubhouse. The new space will be constructed on the same footprint as the current building and will include a second floor for offices and a conference room. The lower level will have restrooms located closer to the front of the building as well as a club repair room and two golf simulators. Additional work will be accomplished to facilitate a planned remodel for the kitchen in the near future.

Employee Appreciation

We are very fortunate to have had a steady staff at WLGC all season long and we greatly appreciate their hard work in making this another very successful year at Whitefish Lake Golf Club. When you encounter one of our employees please take the time to say thank you for a great season.

Annual Meeting reservations

In order to help our staff plan for the Annual Meeting on Saturday, Oct. 15, we ask that you call the restaurant at 406-862-5285 and let them know you’re planning to attend. With the hosted brunch for all attendees the staff needs a close number for food preparation. The meeting starts at 9:30 a.m. with brunch followed by the Annual Business meeting of the WLGA.

The Back Knee the Key

Your back knee is so important in hitting good shots. If you master the correct position of the right knee, you will be on your way to much better golf. On the backswing, your right knee should stay flexed and not be allowed to straighten out. If you straighten your right knee, you will raise your upper body up and away from the ball and then have to correct the swing path on the way down. Also on the backswing don’t let the right knee bow out to the right, as this will cause a sway and not allow you to shift your weight properly. Your weight should be on the inside of your right foot on the backswing and shift to the outside of the left foot on the follow-through.
