Gettysvue Polo, Golf & Country Club

Evidence of Spring
By Louise Ball

Gettysvue Polo, Golf & Country ClubAs the mercury tries it’s best to rise up from winter’s stronghold, so do the daffodils in my front yard and my hopes for a great season of golf. What better way to kick off the 2011 season than to come to a fun event… The Gettysvue Polo, Golf & Country Club Open House.

This free event will be held at the Gettysvue clubhouse on Friday, March 25 from 4:00 to 8:00 pm. Tour our beautiful facility and mingle and meet other families and couples. Enjoy complimentary beverages and creations from our chef. The professional golf staff will have a fun putting contest for everyone to try, and I promise you it will not be your ordinary contest!

If that wasn’t enough to entice you, Gettysvue will give you one round of golf, free, on our championship 18-hole golf course just for coming. We will also be holding a raffle, where one lucky person will receive a full membership to Gettysvue Polo, Golf & Country Club!

You may be saying “I’m not the country club type.” I urge you to come and see what we’re all about. We boast the youngest membership in the Knoxville area. We have a very active and fun membership. If you’re an avid golfer, our men’s and women’s golf associations have many events for you to choose from. If you’re not the competitive type, we have fun events, too. With many family memberships, we continue to assess and improve our Junior Golf program and plan to offer a variety of new activities and tournaments for our Juniors, as well as continue our educational programs. Our golf course is always impeccably maintained, and the layout is demanding, but fair. Gettysvue offers five tee selections to suit anyone’s game. If you’re looking to improve your skills, The Tennessee Golf Academy, owned by yours truly, promises to head you in the right direction. PGA Golf Professional, Mike Robinson, and his staff are also available for lessons.

If tennis is your thing, our Tennis Professional, Christian Burns, offers a wide variety of clinics and lessons for tennis enthusiasts of all ages and ability levels. Gettysvue also offers team tennis. Christian is a great and enthusiastic teacher and makes tennis fun for everyone.

The Gettysvue Jr. Olympic sized swimming pool is home to one of the top swim teams in Knoxville, the Gettysvue Gliders. They have been city champions many times in recent years, and the staff does a great job training our swimmers. Many fun activities are also held at the pool during the summer months.

We hope to see you on March 25th. The Gettysvue staff will be glad to show you around. We will be happy to answer any questions you may have. Reservations are requested to be sure we are prepared to serve everyone’s needs. Please call our Membership Director, Jennifer Colon, at (865) 522-4653, x.105 to reserve your spot at our Open House. We look forward to seeing you and showing what we’re so proud of!
