Did you think I forgot a story? Heck no! Last month I wrote about the team we are building. This time is no different. Who’s on your team? Some of you will remember the night in 1990 when Michael Jordan scored a career-high 69 points in an overtime victory over the Cavs. Jordan was unstoppable, bloodthirsty… a force. That night there was another, lesser-known player for the Bulls, rookie Stacy King. King took four shots and missed each one. But on the fourth, he got fouled. Picture with me the scene. Imagine the stress King feels walking to the free- throw line. Crowd going wild, all eyes on him. The pressure is on. Getting ready to shoot, I’ve got to do my part , he thinks. I’ve got to help my guys win this. He looks over and sees his teammate Michael Jordan, the best player in the NBA. Ugh! Do you think King feels insecure? He releases the ball; it flies toward the hoop and clangs off the rim. He prepares for the second shot. Cav fans are on

their feet… more pressure. But this time, the swish of the ball through the net echoes through the stadium. Good! Game Over! After the game, the press bombarded Michael Jordan in the locker room. As reporters cram around the guy trying to get a quote, someone, who probably couldn’t get close enough to Jordan, started talking to Stacy King and asking him questions. At one point, King quipped, “I’ll always remember this night as the night Michael Jordan and I combined to score 70 points”. Now, that’s pretty funny, considering King only scored one point. But in the big picture, who cares? It was THE point that won the game. The win was a combined TEAM effort! The point? Everyone’s role is important in order to serve you well. It takes a village…it takes a Team! I love the potential of this Ridgewood Team. I feel like we are winning! How do I keep score? The staff is laughing, and you are smiling… we are having fun! Hope to see you soon!

Speaking on behalf of the entire Team, it is a pleasure to serve you.

ear Members:

Firstly, I must express a heartfelt thank you to you all for such a warm and inviting welcome. I have had the pleasure of meeting many of you and every one of you has been simply delightful. I am so invigorated by your willingness to experience new dishes and am striving to elevate the culinary program here at Ridgewood Country Club to new heights. The definition of culinary is the art of preparing and cooking foods. Keeping this in mind, I am diligently working in the back of the house to transform our kitchen into an art studio , staffed with the best of culinarians. Just as the kitchen is the heart of a home, our RCC kitchen is the heart of the Club. For the entire body to work seamlessly, the heart needs a strong and steady beat.

As for the front of the house, I hope you are enjoying the lively changes that you see each week on the menus, as well as the delectable flavors you experience on your palate. I have a lot of tricks up my sleeve to enchant and entice you in months to come. One night, in particular, that will place you in culinary nirvana is our Wine Spectator Top 100 Dinner on March 28th. Be sure to reserve your spot today for the highly exclusive and one of a kind dining event. I also look forward to 31759 providing your family with a phenomenal Easter Sunday brunch complete with your traditional favorites plus a few surprises.

1920, it took off in popularity after appearing in Cocktail Portfolio, an Italian drinks book that was published in 1947. Amazing coincidence that is the same year Ridgewood was founded! Our twist on this classic cocktail adds a bit of sparkling blood orange soda and garnished with a charred rosemary sprig. Be sure to try this cocktail next time you are at the Club or try it at home with this recipe:

owdy Ridgewood! Let me begin by saying what an amazing welcoming experience I have received from everyone here at Ridgewood. Every single member that I have met has greeted me as if I am part of the family. As I have been visiting with the membership and staff there are a fewwords that keep coming up…family, tradition, and hospitality. Ridgewood has such a rich history and it is evident that everyone associated with the Club takes great pride in it. I hope that I can truly impact the Club in a fresh and positive way. One thing we have freshened up is the cocktail menu. Don’t worry, we aren’t taking the classics away, just adding fun and seasonal drinks to amuse your palate. My favorite cocktail right now is the slightly bitter and boozy Blood Orange Negroni, our twist on the classic. Although the original Negroni was created somewhere between 1912 and

SPRING IS HERE And Golf Is In Full Swing!

MARCH 11 | 3 - 7 PM Ping Demo Day

We have a lot of exciting activities planned and look forward to seeing everyone on the course. One “Local Rule” we are implementing for the 2020 season for casual and competitive play is regarding obstructions around the greens only. This rule is designed to afford relief from sprinkler heads located within two club lengths of the green that may affect your line of play. Below is the official Local rule that Ridgewood is adopting: For sprinkler heads within two (2) club lengths of the green that are in the player’s intended line of play, and the player’s ball is within two (2) club lengths of the sprinkler head, the player may take free relief. Relief must be the nearest point, not nearer to the hole and must be complete relief (obstruction must not interfere with stance or swing) This rule is being implemented for situations that require players to putt from just off the green and sprinkler heads would interfere with their line of putt. RULE 16 - 1 | LOCAL RULE F-5

HO L E # 1 TO RE -OPEN IN APRIL!

F

or months (ok – years) I have proudly stated that Ridgewood Country Club is the “best 17 Hole Course in Texas”. However, I will soon be abandoning this dubious claim to fame, as we are planning to completely reopen the new 1st hole in early April of this year. The new green location combined with a re-routed cart path and renovated 2nd hole tee boxes- will greatly reduce the impact of future flooding. According to Tripp Davis, Golf Course Architect, the changes not only provide flood mitigation, but actually provide golfers with an improved overall opening hole. Please keep in mind that while the new green and surrounding areas should be healthy enough to tolerate traffic by early spring – we will need most of 2020 for the grass to mature to a point

that playing conditions match those seen throughout the rest of the course. This is particularly true for the new green. As such, golfers should expect slightly different firmness and speed for most of the spring and summer. Over the years, our crew has spent countless hours working to recover our 1st green from floods. They have done a great job throughout this project, and have worked hard to get everything ready for a spring re-opening. I can assure you that we are just as excited as you are to now have a 1st hole that will be much less prone to flood damage. We appreciate your continued patience and look forward to seeing you on the course soon.

Collectively, your experienced Ridgewood fitness staff of six instructors has taught group fitness classes for 92 years.

For early risers, try Life Fit at 6 am for cardio and circuit training. At 8 am, we offer Interval Training or Body Sculpting. At 7 am or 9 am join Erin for Pilates. Finally, at 10 am, try Stretch and Tone. Since every class is not offered every day, please check the weekly class schedule on the website. Instructors can demonstrate modifications for all fitness levels from beginner to advanced. Members are always encouraged to work at their own pace.

Well over half of the contest participants maintained their initial weight or lost a few pounds during the holidays. Congratulations to all the participants!

If group exercise is not for you, then the fitness staff invites you to use the weights and cardio equipment, or schedule a personal training session with Fitness Director, David Hill.  This holiday season, Ridgewood Fitness hosted its first annual contest to see which members could gain the least weight from November 8 to January 10. Twenty members contributed

You can tell how friendly we are from miles and miles away.

The first thing people notice about us is our big Texas flag. But

what they remember is the way we treat our customers. We recognize their faces and know their needs. In some banks, that’s considered “special treatment.” To us, that’s just being Texas friendly.
