2018 Membership Letter

Dear Member,

Red Hawk hopes this letter finds you and your family in good health. We can’t believe that it is already November and our golf season is slowing down. The good news is that the weather is forecast to be mild this winter. Hopefully, you will take advantage of this mild weather and we will see you around the club. Bring a friend or relative and show them around the facility. If they have an interest in golf, point them in my direction. Let’s keep our old course going and growing for future generations. Speaking of keeping the old course going, we have made some significant improvements this year. We have resurfaced and striped the parking lot. We are about to resurface more of the cart paths with the help of funds raised through the Roger Seibert Memorial Tournament. This year we have been partnering with Southern Illinois Landscaping and Mr. Alex Eade to keep our course in top shape. Alex has been invaluable as our turf specialist consultant and our able maintenance crew has responded well to his guidance. A special thank you goes out to our volunteers: Don (Shorty) Kellerman, Max Witbracht, Gayland Chancey, and Bill Whitman. We could not keep this course going without everyone’s help! This year we have enhanced our golf cart fleet by leasing carts from Little Egypt and we will continue doing so next year. Our mechanic, Anthony Kellerman, has also been doing his part to keep our carts well maintained.

It is important to us to make Red Hawk a fun place. Our Monday evening Ladies League has continued to grow and evolve into an evening enjoyed by not only the ladies, but their spouses as well. The Tuesday night Men’s League has maintained its loyal following and the Thursday night Mixed Scramble has flourished. We so appreciate your support of the golf course but also the support of the food and beverage in the Clubhouse. We are very proud of our facility under the amazing supervision of Erica Nehrkorn and Kevin Mayer. Please continue to sample our daily specials and remember our beautiful venue for any of your celebrations.

Please know that Michelle and I are committed to keeping Red Hawk a success for the future. We would very much appreciate your continued help and support. Don’t forget to encourage others to join the Red Hawk family and please keep your suggestions coming on how we can continue to improve our facility. Let’s all do our part to make Red Hawk and golf, in general, a great experience. Holiday blessings to you all!


Dan & Michelle Breslin
