in past blogs I have mentioned that there have been many changes at LKCC. This year is definitely no exception. I am not sure
where to start.
We have harvested many old pine trees over this past winter with the intention of getting more sunlight to several greens. We also
cut down five large pine trees next to the clubhouse. This was not only to get more sunlight to our new practice green but to prevent
them from falling on the clubhouse.
When you drive in the entrance to the parking lot, you will notice our new practice green and the beautiful landscaping around the
clubhouse and green. This work was designed by Suzanne Higham, a license landscaping architect (and also Bill Morrella’s
daughter). With the help of many of our members and the beautification committee, the area started to take shape last weekend. I
would like to send out a special thanks to all that participated in the planting day. The positive reviews have been overwhelming!
The interior of our clubhouse has also received several renovations. The new ceiling in the screen porch with new light fixtures and
2 ceiling fans has made that area more “comfortable”. A new storage closet, manager’s office and a hidden location for the ice
maker has brought many smiles from the staff. The newly painted porch floor and refurbished walls really make that area a nice
place to sit and socialize. Thank you to Bill Bisset for “manning” the brush and roller.
After 26 years of service to Lake Kezar Country Club, Brian Merrill has decided to step down as Superintendent. He has devoted a
“life’s work” to our course and we are all truly indebted to him. I wish Brian the best of luck in his future endeavors.
Thank you for your loyalty and support of LKCC and the family that we have made. It is a great feeling to see more new members
each year. You may all boast that we have been named “The #1 Golfing Value in New England” for the second year in a row. Be
loud and proud!!
