Welcome Indian Summer, Please Stay Awhile...

Mother Nature continues her kindness for the start of the month. We are all rooting for a long Indian Summer with favorable temperatures and plenty of sunshine. Let's take advantage of the weather and play a round of golf, light the fire pit and keep the good times going. Our favorite time of year is not over yet so we hope to see you often during the month of November!
