WHAT IS IT? WHY IS IT BENEFICIAL TO THE COURSE?
Have you heard of 'Dryject'?
Dryject is a new aerification process being used at many country clubs, in which Eastpointe just brought on board! It’s a procedure that many courses are starting to add into their agronomic practices. We hope to continue to be able to include this in ours. The machine has a hopper on top that we pour dry bagged sand into and the machine is also plugged into a water source. It then mixes the sand and water in its system and a pressurized water and sand mixture is injected into the greens profile. We see this procedure as a great and healthy process to do for our turf. Our ultimate goal is to keep our course healthy, clean and perfect for your play.
Is this trend really for me?
They’re all the Rage! How to Incorporate
Lawn Games into Your Wedding Day….
of fun, like a game of croquet or ring toss, to your wedding reception or
pre-ceremony moments can up the ante for how much fun your guests will have!
But how do you add in Lawn Games without diminishing the style chosen for the
the Game Selection to the Feel and Style of Your Wedding
Lawn games can be laid back and casual, or you can fancy up them up if you are
having more of a classic fete by adding upscale design elements such as
incorporating your event color palette, fonts, etc. into the design of the
These details will tie the activities to the event itself.
If you are having a classic outdoor ceremony with modern design details yet you
want your guests to feel comfortable and enjoy the in-between moments of your
opt to include games with design features that speak to your
"theme" and style of your overall event. Think your wedding monogram
as an addition to your croquet mallets, Jenga pieces, or cornhole bags.
are many ideas in the chaos that is Pinterest to really ensure the “theme and
feel” is tied throughout the entire day.
Games With a Bit of Meaning
The fun thing about adding lawn games into your wedding entertainment is the
ability to curate the games based on your relationship and style.
Meet the love
of your life in college and associate some of your favorite college days
playing cornhole while tailgating?
Opt to include this as a sweet memento to
your early relationship days.
Or maybe you have a favorite game, such as Jenga
or Connect Four, you like to play with your partner on a date night in - opt
for giant versions of the games for your guests to play.
This is also a great
way to speak to your relationship and make the day even more "you" as
the Number of Games
While having several different game options for your guests is a great idea in
theory - hey, something for everyone!
It is best to keep the games to two to
three count per one hundred guests. This way, you are adding a dash of
personality and giving your guests activities, yet the games are still
organized and serve just as much in the decor department as they do
entertaining your guests.
Sooo You’re Engaged. And, You’re Agreeing on Everything!
You’re in love. Hearts
a fluttering. Star-gazed lovers.
But, you two don’t always see eye to eye. Obviously.
We all know that a
successful relationship is learning how to compromise—and now that you’re planning
a wedding, it is even more important.
Not all decisions are major, but
there will be hundreds, and the stress is there.
It’s totally normal not to agree on every
detail—but how do we get to the “I Do” with all our hairs intact and with an
event that makes both of you go, “Wowwww”
Here’s my help:
-What are your gold
keys? The food, the music, the favors?
This is going to help
you realize where to save and where to splurge, budget-wise. Sit down and
decide the most important two things to each of you.
Let the person that cares
most about that detail make the final call.
When in doubt, ask:
A wedding planner
isn’t for everyone, but they do help tremendously.
Most often they are the best
resource, because, well they’ve done this once or twice. They can also serve as
a neutral voice.
For example, if you’re debating between two color schemes, ask
your florist which would suit your venue best.
Or if you and your partner can’t decide on a first dance song,
ask your DJ. Don’t stress when the expertise is there at your every call!
Give yourself Deadlines:
In the initial stages,
make yourself the timeline, and here’s my advice, stick to it.
We’re all busy, but
this is important and the organization in the beginning will save you in the
end. I promise.
Make this detailed, “We’re going to decide on our cake flavors
by Saturday” or “We need to choose ceremony readings by 3 p.m. today.”
your choice. Inform your vendors and keep on truck’n.
guests are the real VIPs.
Yes, it’s about the
two of you. But never forget that these people are taking time, and spending
money, most often a lot of it.
They want to share your joy. A good place to
start is to consider your guests needs first. Is the venue near lodging? Will
there be a need for transportation?
And seriously, the food. I hear this all
the time, “Well we hate chicken, and we’re not serving it!” Well, more than
likely 75% of your guests would have chosen chicken.
Talk to your culinary
team, many times they will make you exactly what you want even if it’s not on
the rest of the tables.
By taking yourselves out of the equation and thinking
about your guests, you may be able to come to a decision with less conflict.
And hey, realize now that you’re creating a partnership here,
this is the 1st day of the rest of your life together. Take turns
driving. Offer to take on extra.
Voice your opinion. To all my OCD gals out
there, your better half already knows you, give them small projects.
feel great and you’ll feel better knowing this is truly the best step to a
lifetime of teamwork and communication!!!

Eastpointe Country Club East Course Recognized For Environmental Excellence
CERTIFIED AUDUBON COOPERATIVE SANCTUARY
Eastpointe Country Club East
Course has retained its designation as a "Certified Audubon Cooperative
Sanctuary" through the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf
Courses, an Audubon International program. John Spiwak, Director of Golf and
Grounds, led the effort to maintain sanctuary status on this course. Eastpointe
Country Club East Course was designated as a Certified Audubon Cooperative
Sanctuary in 2011 and is one of 888 courses in the world to currently be
designated as such.
The Audubon Cooperative
Sanctuary Program for Golf Courses, endorsed by the United States Golf
Association, provides information and guidance to help golf courses preserve
and enhance wildlife habitat, and protect natural resources. Golf courses from
the United States, Africa, Australia, Canada, Central America, Europe, Mexico,
and Southeast Asia have achieved certification in the program.
"Eastpointe Country Club
East Course has shown a strong commitment to its environmental program. They
are to be commended for preserving the natural heritage of the area by
protecting the local watershed and providing a sanctuary for wildlife on the
golf course property," said Christine Kane, Executive Director at Audubon
"To reach certification,
a course must demonstrate that they are maintaining a high degree of
environmental quality in a number of areas," explained Kane. These
categories include: Environmental Planning, Wildlife & Habitat Management,
Outreach and Education, Chemical Use Reduction and Safety, Water Conservation,
and Water Quality Management. Courses go through a recertification process
every three years.
Audubon International is a
501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in Troy, NY. In addition to golf
