The View Point
January, 2018 Newsletter
Happy New Year to all our members and guests. Wow, what a beautiful month December turned out to be. Most of our resort guests came up to ski and decided to golf instead. The course has been in good shape, even though it is somewhat frozen. Golfers get plenty of distance on their tee shots as well as approach shots to the greens.
You should have received a letter from the General Manager last month. I have included page one of the updated member agreement, so you can see the changes to benefits and policies.
The biggest change is that we are going back to a 9-month billing cycle, so no dues for January, February and March! The golf shop will be closed and only preventative course maintenance provided. For our “die-hard” golfers, we will allow walk-ons for $20; however, be sure to call the front desk (at 926-3030) first, to make sure the course is playable.
Our new cart fleet of Club Cars will rent for $18.00 (non-member) and $15.00 (members). Annual cart passes for 2018 will be $565.00 (single) and $865.00 (family). Monthly dues will be $145.00 (single) and $185.00 (family).
2018 reciprocal rates :
Tierra Oaks in Redding $30.00 Boulder Creek in Santa Cruz $35.00
Riverview in Redding $40.00 Lake Shastina in Weed $35.00
Wilcox Oaks in Red Bluff $40.00
My next newsletter will be sent with your April statement.
Happy New Year and have a wonderful winter!
The Ice Man
Charles Corrales has been a member here at The Resort for the last five years and usually has a great attitude on the golf course, except when his putt won’t fall due to ice in the cup. This happened recently on the sixteenth green and his playing partners found it humorous. They probably conceded the putt anyway. We have no idea if it was for a par or birdie. Someone told us later it was for bogie.
We have had frozen conditions the whole month of December, which makes for more challenges than normal. Golf is already a challenging game, and the cold snap has caused our golfers to use more creativity to play the course. Tee shots that hit the fairway will roll forever, and approach shots that hit the green, usually bounce high and way beyond he green. Strategy is a key element in golf, especially in the winter.
Sip and Shop Success
We sold an array of merchandise, at a nice discount. This was our end of year inventory clearance and we declared it a big success.

Resort Guest Caught a Trophy!
Jarid Norberg came down from Grants Pass and stayed with his family at Mount Shasta Resort. They went fishing here at Lake Siskiyou and landed a nice seven pound rainbow on December 28th. Jarid hooked the trophy rainbow with a spinner of some kind and took home some great memories. Earlier in the week he played golf with his family and enjoyed that, as well. That’s one thing about Mount Shasta Resort, you never run out of interesting and exciting things to do. The whole family tried their hand at tennis the next day and returned to the golf shop with big smiles on their faces. Happy New Year to the Norberg Family. See you again soon.
