Initials usually appear on golf balls and scorecards, not on hats, but for this junior the initials on his hat mean more than just three letters. ‘JSK’ appears on the right-hand side of Conley Miller’s tournament hat. These initials are for Miller’s grandmother, Joyce Kessler, who was diagnosed with brain cancer in early January 2014. Miller wrote ‘JSK’ on his hat just to put a smile on his grandmother’s face, since she’s followed all of his golf tournaments. Kessler has had surgery and is currently undergoing chemotherapy, and getting better day-by-day.
Down the Ledge
It’s common to find golf balls or even clubs that have unfortunately been lost down a steep hill or cliff, but for The Ledges, they lost more that. A mower sits on the cliff next to the green of No. 15. One morning a mower got too close to the side of the cliff and simply started to fall. Fortunately maintenance staff member was able to jump off the mower as it was falling, and although the staff member was ok, the mower was not able to be saved and serves as a reminder that you should never get too close to The Ledge at The Ledges.
Not Your Normal Hole Signs
Hole signs are normal for a golf course. At The Ledges, not only are the hole signs on rocks, but holes have actual names. For example, No. 16 is named Alcatraz and No. 2 is named Old Stoney. The holes have different names because they offer different views, challenges and obstacles throughout the course.
