FROST AGAIN!

It's that time of year. The frost delay is currently scheduled for 9:00 AM. Call the golf shop for updates on the half hour. 650.724.0944

The golf shop renovation project is on schedule so far. New retail lighting was installed. Slatwall was affixed to the walls this week and a fresh coat of paint was added. The back office area will soon be updated to include a dressing room and improved storage.

The estimated project completion date is December 23. Provided the cabinetry is delivered and installed on time, the contractors will complete the project on time. We are very excited for a fresh, new look in the shop.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during the past two weeks. I apologize for the inconvenience due to the loud noise and amount of dust.

Stanford logo merchandise including hats, balls, beanies, gloves, clothing and more can be purchased at the driving range shop.

Happy Holidays!

Golf Shop Project Underway & Frost Delays

The interior of the golf shop was gutted yesterday and the contractors are already making great progress. New electrical fixtures will be a great new added benefit. The overall improvements include better working stations for the golf staff, new dressing room, complimentary retail fixtures from Nike Golf and added retail floor space. Estimated re-opening of the shop is 12/23.

Player check-in for tee times remains in the golf shop. Temporary counter set up just inside the front door of the shop. Most of the golf shop inventory was packed up and stored for the duration of the project but many items are available at the driving range shop.

Frost delay this morning until 9:00 AM. Please check twitter reports on the Stanford Golf Course web page for updates. www.stanfordgolfcourse.com. An additional source for weather and temperature updates is www.wunderground.com.

Have a great day. See you on the links!

Stanford Golf Shop Improvement Project

Hot off the presses!

On Monday, December 5th, a golf shop improvement project begins.

In consideration of the strong relationship between Stanford University Athletics and Nike Inc., a partnership in golf seemed a natural fit. Stanford Athletics and Nike Golf will partner in an effort to improve the golf shop appearance, improve merchandise selection and increase merchandise sales.

Additional benefits include improved ergonomic workstations for golf staff, private dressing room, better retail lighting and more efficient back office merchandising.

Merchandise & Holiday Shopping;
Sale prices on items remaining in the golf shop will continue through Sunday.
Merchandise at 50% off was moved to the driving range golf shop.
All shorts and pants are 25% off and have also been moved to the driving range shop.

Player check-in;
Player check-in will remain in the golf shop during the project.
A temporary set-up will be staged just inside the front door of the golf shop until the new counter is built and all electronics are reconnected at the new counter.

We will do our best to provide great service to all constituents during the renovation. We appreciate your patience and understanding.

Start date is Monday 12/5. Anticipated finish date is 12/23. Please contact me with your questions regarding the project.

We are very excited to make these improvements! A "Grand Opening" sale will be announced early in the new year.

Kind regards,
Shannon
