Inland Empire Elks Challenge

2017 Inland Empire Elks’ Challenge Golf Tournament

August 26th & 27th —

Moscow Elks Lodge #249, will be holding an invitational event for 4 person teams of Elks and/or spouses the end of August.  We are inviting any Elks lodge to participate and are sending invitations to all lodges within a half day’s drive.  The event will begin Saturday August 26th with teams playing at a time of their choice allowing teams from a distance to travel in the morning and have an afternoon tee time, if they wish.  Sunday’s play will be in the morning giving folks the opportunity to drive home that afternoon, although we would love to have you stick around for a few days.

We have limited RV hookups (water and electric) at a nominal fee, and plenty of room for dry camping near the clubhouse.

We will provide dinner Saturday evening and breakfast Sunday morning as part of your fee of $65 per person, along with 2 rounds of golf, tee prizes, and a traveling  trophy to the winning team.  Lunch Saturday and Sunday will be available at bar/dining in the clubhouse.

We are proud of our course, a 9-hole Francis James’ layout, (think Walla Walla Country Club, Seattle Country Club, Jackson Park, Peace Portal etc.) built in the 1920’s and still following the original routing.  We are an honest par 70 (rated 71 from the tips) test, designed to challenge good players  and be playable for the rest.

The course has been rounding into fine shape the last few years with some excellent work from our greens staff. We hope you can share it with us.

This is not a fundraiser for us, nor a high value competition for you.  It is planned as a social occasion, with some quality golf built in, allowing members of lodges throughout the area to spend some time with other Elks. 

Please contact me with any questions. Entry forms are available on this site, along with additional information about our lodge and golf course

Elks BULLetin #7

Volume 7, 2017

 Elks BULLetin

Golf Course Update!

Trent has raked, added top soil and seeded a number of areas around the golf course.  Until these seeded areas are mature enough to handle play, please remove your ball from these areas and do not play on them.  Also, do not drive your carts on them for any reason.

Trent is in the process of fixing all the traps on the course with newly added sand and trimming the edges.  He has asked all golfers to leave the rakes IN THE TRAPS.  This will help him save time when he mows around the traps.

Hopefully everyone has heard about the state adding a turnout on highway 8 on the back side of #8 green.  This project will start sometime this summer.  The state has given us money to put up some trees and a net behind #8 green to protect the passing cars and a sound barrier for us.  There should be enough money left over to help us do a number of other projects around the course and lodge.

Due to the road construction and the state having heavy equipment working behind #8 green, it is a REMOTE possibility we may have to take the green off line for a short time.  Trent has a plan to minimize the inconvenience to our golfers.  He will create a temporary green next to the pond and the 100 yard marker on #7.  He will then create a new #8 tee for a short par 3 to the original #7 green.  After playing the shortened #8 hole, we can go directly to #9 tee to finish our round.

We still have water issues in front of #2 and #9 tees, please do not drive your carts in these areas until they dry out and are mowed.  Does anyone like the idea of building a lake in front of those tees?

Just kidding!  Lastly, Trent and his crew are working as hard as they can to get the fairways and rough mowed down to make the course easier to play.

Enough Elk droppings for today,

THE BULL

Message from the Exalted Ruler

Is that sunshine I see?  Finally the weather is beginning to cooperate with us as I see more and more members coming out to the Lodge and golf course.  Trent has done an incredible job of keeping the course in great shape despite the challenges of the weather and the soft ground which has kept some of the equipment off the grass.  You may have noticed that the Idaho Transportation Department has begun working to create a right turn lane on the highway.   This will impact green #8 as construction progresses.  Please be careful. 

The local Elk scholarship winners have been announced.  Congratulations to Victoria Welch from Garfield, Alexie Smith from Colfax, Chase Blazzard from Troy and Neeraj Utgikar from Moscow.  Other than the Federal Government, no other organization or individual gives out more scholarship money than the Elks.  Congratulations again to the local winners and the Lodge scholarship committee for their hard work.

Things to look forward to include:  June 14th for Flag Day. We will be doing the Flag Day ceremony as part of lodge night.    July 4th will be our 68th Sole Survivor.  Never too early to plan where you will be for the total solar eclipse on August 21 – Lodge grounds might be ideal.  Pay attention to the July newsletter and the BULLetin for our August Brew Fest news as well.

Fraternally,

Corey Ray

Exalted Ruler

Missing but not Forgotten

Danny Hordemann passed away on Friday, May 19th. Dan was a member of our Lodge for 54 years, having been initiated in 1964. He was sponsored by Ken Jordan Sr. and was an avid golfer, having won the Sole Survivor three times and the Senior Sole Survivor once. He will be greatly missed by family, friends and fellow Elks.

Sole Survivor Qualifying and Skins Games

The Sole Survivor qualifying had its first round completed on May 21.  We had 11 golfers try to qualify on a sunny day.  Kathy Christian did a great job of organizing and tallying the results.  All the results sheets are posted in the club house by the bar area and in the tournament room.  

The last two qualifying dates are June 11th, and 25th, be sure to sign up.  Each time you play you are playing for positions awarded on that days play as well as earning points to qualify for the Sole Survivor and the Senior Sole Survivor tournaments. 

If you just want to play for skins money you are welcome to do that as well. Skins money will be available at the bar by Tuesday after results are calculated.

Golf Cart Wash

Currently the golf cart wash area next to the cart sheds is NOT working.  The water comes from our irrigation system and the system has not been turned on yet.  There is water available to wash your carts in the front parking lot next to the RV locations.  A notice will be posted in the bar and dining area when the cart wash area is functioning.

From the Desk of the Secretary

 Warm weather and sunshine have finally arrived!! It is nice to see folks coming out and partaking in dinners, receptions, birthdays, golf and other social gatherings. We have a lot of activity coming up in June, as you will see from the calendar. Ladies league as started and we will be starting our Friday Night Steak dinners the 2nd of June.

 We still have a small issue with some of our members playing in golf leagues that have not paid their dues yet. I am sure you will all agree that this is very unfair to members that have paid all their dues, so please get this taken care of.

 Looks like the intersection with Mill Road and Hwy. 8 will be out of service for most of the summer, what with Avista replacing power polls and then ITD working on the turn lane. Avista has been pretty good about putting up detour signs. For those of us that need to use the north parking lot, please use Joseph St., turning onto Parker Rd. and then South onto Mill Road. Thanks for your patience.

Once again, I am sorry for the newsletter being late for those of you that get it in the mail. The logistics of getting the 249er out the first week of each month can be trying. If you need it sooner, please let me know what email address to send it to. You will get it a week or more earlier! You can email me at secretary@elks249.com.

 Thanks,

Wayne Krauss,

Secretary

Happy 90th Moscow Elks Golf Course

In the spring of 1927, play began on what is now The Moscow Elks Golf Course.  The then “Moscow Golf Club” opened a 9 hole course designed by golf course architect Francis James.

The current golf course still follows the original routing he laid out.  If you look at the scorecard from that period you will see minimal differences from the current card.

*Thanks to the Latah County Historical Society for the score card.

The original investors in the club put up between $100 and $125 (around $1500 today) to purchase the land and build the course.  A season pass was $60 ($820 today).

When the course was approaching bankruptcy in 1936, during the depression, the members of the Moscow Golf Club sold the course to the Moscow Elks Lodge for $1 ($18 today) with the agreement that the property would be maintained and operated as a golf course.

The lodge has maintained and operated the course from 1936 on.  Today an Elk and his or her family can enjoy the course for an annual family rate of $721.

P A System

The Golf Committee would like to thank Shawn Jordan for volunteering to get our PA system operable again.  

The committee had allocated funds to purchase equipment to restore the PA availability for the club, but Shawn volunteered to check out what we had, and was able to test, solder, rewire, reroute, and reestablish our system.

Thanks again to Shawn and to committee member Kathy Christian for her assistance.

Range conditions

A few requests and reminders about the driving range.

  • As the sign currently posted says “irons only.”  Some of our members have been using their drivers and need to be aware that the lower area is too soft for ball retrieval, and while it is drying out, the balls hit in that area may be lost for ever.  We will open the range for woods when conditions allow.
  •  The sand bottles are for you to take with you and use on the course to fill in divots in the fairway.  Please return the bottles when done.
  • Please do not fill in your divots on the range.  While we appreciate your efforts, it is more efficient for us to fill them in as part of maintenance of the practice tee.

Thanks for your cooperation,

Couples’ Golf & Steak Night

Couples golf and steak night will start this coming Friday, June 2nd.  The first week will be “for fun play” and hopefully we can convince someone to help organize the golf for the rest of the summer.  The bar and dining will provide a green salad, baked potato, and a juicy steak for $10.00 per person.  The BBQ grills are located on the patio for everyone to grill their own steaks.
