Finally A Member!
A native from Ohio, Craig Hanna has become our newest member of Mount Shasta Resort. We used to call Craig “the late Mr. Hanna,” because he always seemed to be the last player off the course, when he had a chance to play. We also encouraged him to join the club because he was playing over 100 rounds a year.
Craig says he’s a ten handicap, but we have witnessed a player better than that. He can hit the ball a long way, but he claims to have an even better short game. A good long game and a good short game is always a good combination.
Craig wants to hit more greens in regulation and make more putts. Well, don’t we all?
Craig has shot a 67 here at MSR and that would be about a net 57. Now that is just playing great. He says his favorite hole here is #1, because the par five is always a good chance for birdie and it’s always good to start with a birdie. Somehow, he struggles with hole #15 just like the rest of us. The straight away par four plays tougher than it looks on the scorecard. Even if you hit a good drive, hitting the green in regulation is a real challenge.
Craig wants to have fun on the golf course, and the key is to shoot lower scores. He has learned that hitting a tree and having to duck from the ball coming back is not fun, but it was funny, especially the second time it happened on the same hole.

The View Point
"If I could have breakfast with that view every day, I would! The food is as good as the view - EXCELLENT! Thanks!" A. Rouse, Director of San Ramon, CA

“March Madness” had nothing to do with colligate basketball at The Resort. It was all about enjoying sunny days and playing golf on our course almost every day. We could call it “March Happiness.” We still had frost delays, but the afternoons were spectacular. Kevin Lahey got a “Hole-in-One” on Sunday the 23rd and bought a few drinks for everyone in the lounge. Kevin often plays in our weekend skins games and finally got two skins on #17 with his “ace.” It is a tradition for someone to buy the drinks if they make a “Hole-in-One,” and we were greatful to Kevin for doing the right thing!
The Mount Shasta Resort Ladies Club had a good showing on Monday the 24th and took advantage of the great weather. Karen Harris, Ann Barker, Linda Bryant, Cindi Schieber, Connie Huckaba, Pat Emerson, and Margarita Smith played a partner best ball game and finished the day still friends. We have more room for participation with our Ladies Club and all you have to do is show up any Monday morning at 9am.
The “Masters Sweeps” is scheduled for Saturday, April 12th. Call the Pro Shop and we will reserve a tee time for your foursome. If you are a single player, we will have you join a friendly group to round out the field. The entry fee is $20.00 per player and your net score on Saturday will be combined with your Pro Partner’s weekend total. This is our first “sweeps” of the season and we hope to have a full field.
The U.S. Open Sweeps will be held on June 14th, followed by the British Open Sweeps on July 19th, and the P.G.A. Sweeps on August 9th. These are all popular seasonal events for you to enjoy. Call the Pro Shop for more details at 530-926-3052.
Snow covered Mount Shasta is a great backdrop when you tee off on hole #6 at Mount Shasta Resort. With daylight savings time, we can play till 7:30pm or later. Here we see Cheyene Ives hitting her driver straight down the fairway. The dogleg right par four is challenging with OB down the right side and a water hazard just behind the green.
We have had visitors here recently from Switzerland, Holland, Germany, England, Brazil, and Australia. Mount Shasta Resort has become a destination where friends and family can meet and enjoy the natural beauty around us.
Many of our members are gearing up for the golf season by replacing their golf grips or having them professionally cleaned. It’s also a good idea to check your golf shoes to see if you need new spikes. Good traction is important and worn out spikes are useless and dangerous. Come to the Pro Shop and we will be happy to install your new spikes for you.
Even a little rain storm won’t keep some golfers off the course. Here we see some of our members getting ready for another skins game. Guy Crispi, Danny Hansen, John Gut, Dave Turk, Scott Waite, and John Redmond are among the many that challenge the elements, as well as the golf course. You really don’t have to be good to win a skin, but it helps to be lucky.

Kevin Lahey say’s, “Just relax, it’s all attitude.”
