President of the Board ~ Jan Anthony-Starr

Now that the holidays have passed

and things have settled down a bit,

we can "dream" about Spring and

our upcoming golf season. Again, I

would like to welcome our new

Head Pro, Tim Burkhart. I would

also like to welcome Tom Wiers

onto the Board of Directors. He

will be finishing the last 2 years for

Marla Murasko who had to resign.

The Board would like to thank

Marla for service on the Board this

past year. She was very instrumental

in providing the kids activities

and involved with membership.

Thank you Marla.

Well, here it is February and we

have endured one-third of the winter.

Even though it has been cold

and nasty outside, it has been warm

and “social” in the clubhouse.

There have been a couple of good

parties and certainly our fair share

of sporting events. There is more to

come with our Super Bowl Sunday,

Valentine’s Day, and a special evening

of entertainment as we partner

with Encore Performing Arts. Soon

it will be Spring, the golf course

will be green, and we will be preparing

the pool for the summer season.

The trick is to survive the remaining

60 days of winter.

We have been busy --- Ryan taking

care of his equipment, Tim retooling

the Pro Shop, and the

kitchen and wait staff working on

As you are aware, we have struggled

financially the last few years.

So it is IMPERATIVE that usage

of the clubhouse increases drastically

this year. We all need to actively

recruit new members. We

are offering some "new pro" specials

for this upcoming season, so

PLEASE help us recruit some new

members You can call Misti for

information of the specials or email

her at the club.

We had election of new officers.

They are as follows:

President - Jan Anthony-Starr

Vice President - Louie Plumlee

General Manager ~ Darrell Merrill 936-4543

cleaning the clubhouse. There is

always something to do at PCC,

whether it’s social or work.

Last month I addressed the subject

of membership. Again I want to ask

ALL members to work on recruiting

NEW members. It doesn’t make

any difference what category (full

members are best); we need to increase

our numbers, which in turn

will increase our revenue. I know

the economy is still “soft.” We

need people who want a great dining

experience, like golf, like socializing,

and like relaxing on the

shores of Pretty Lake. When you

come to the club, bring some guests,

show off the place, and tell them

this is it in Marshall County. There

is nothing else to compare us to locally.

Come to PCC for business



Secretary - Mike Bergman

Treasurer - Jason Cadwell

It's an honor to be chosen as president

again. However, that does

mean that you have to read another

ten messages from me in this newsletter!

Be safe, and we will talk

next month. My phone number is

286-4366 and email is


if you have any concerns, complaints,

or compliments.

meetings and luncheons. Have your

next organizational party at the club.

Weddings, rehearsal dinners, bachelor

parties --- we love ‘em all.

As I prepare for a menu change in

the Spring, let me know YOUR

ideas. I will try to incorporate them

on a lunch or dinner menu. If I

can’t, I’ll tell you why. Remember,

we need items that will sell and

leave us with very little food waste.

You want something special for a

personal dinner? Talk to me with

enough lead time and we can make

it happen. I love preparing gourmet

meals. Please get with me concerning

your menu ideas by the end of


See you at the Club!

I cannot believe that winter is halfway

over! The staff and I are grinding the

last of the reels and beginning to put all

of our machinery together for the upcoming

season. We are excited for the

upcoming golf season, and I hope that

you are getting ready for golf at PCC
