Happy Thanksgiving from Sutton Bay

Dear Sutton Bay Member,

Greetings from the Bay! On behalf of the team at Sutton Bay, I would like to wish you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving.

Sutton Bay has such a wonderful vibe during the hunting season, and the level of camaraderie amongst the members & guests coupled with lasting memories is unmatched at any Club I have experienced. We have had a very busy November as many members and guests visited the Club and enjoyed our beautiful fall days. I hope you are able to make one more trip this season. Our closing day is December 11TH and it is approaching fast!

A friendly reminder, that our last Club event on the calendar for 2016 is the Year End Hunt scheduled on Monday, December 5TH and Tuesday, December 6TH. We have availability left for those two days, and we would like to invite you for a special bonus to coincide with the Year End Hunt. We have added ½ price EXTRA pheasants for the Year End Hunt days. Thus on December 5TH & 6TH, after you have knocked down your first 5 birds each day, you can shoot up to another 15 birds at ½ price. Please contact us as soon as possible to reserve your spot.

I would like to announce that we have promoted Kurt Letellier to Assistant General Manager. Along with his current position of Land & Game Manager, Kurt will be assisting me in other areas of Club Operations. As many of you know, Kurt has been here since the inception, and has been an integral part of Sutton Bay’s success. I felt this was a well-deserved reward for a terrific employee and an even better person. From a personal standpoint, Kurt has been of great assistance helping me in my transition to Sutton Bay, and I am excited for him with this added role. Congratulations Kurt and thank you for everything you do for our special place. Please feel free to send along congratulations and well wishes to Kurt at kletellier@suttonbay.com.

As we wrap up the last few weeks of the 2016 season, we are already preparing for 2017. I will be sending out the complete 2017 calendar before the end of the year, but I would first like to announce the 2017 Sutton Bay Invitational to be contested July 27TH-29TH.

The Invitational is certainly one of our star events and we look forward to hosting another great event in 2017. We are excited to offer a new format for this event that many of us are familiar with playing. The Sutton Bay Invitational is all about golf and camaraderie. Thus we decided to institute a format that is conducive with meeting and playing with more of your fellow members and their guests. In 2017, we will be utilizing the 9-Hole Two Man Match Play format within six team flights. This will allow you to play with five different members & their guests, as opposed to two. Then we will crown a champion on Saturday afternoon with the Sutton Bay Shootout and the awards dinner for Saturday evening. We have moved the event to the more traditional days of Thursday to Saturday, so one does not have to take as many days away from their work week, and allows for a Sunday travel day.
