Mill Creek Resident Meet the Golf Course


I am on the Mill Creek Community Association board and do their newsletter for the past six years. This board meets at my house each month and we always plan a special event such as a party or activities for the residence. I send out six hundred sixty newsletters to all people who live in our Mill Creek Community. Our membership is not mandatory so we are always looking for way to bring more people into the Association.

This year we decided to have our Spring Celebration at the Mill Creek Golf Club. The golf course was in trouble for several reasons and one mainly the devastation to the course from our flood last year. We decided to have our spring event at the Golf course Club House which we never had done before. We put out news of this event in the newsletter and decided to raffle off a large patio grill plus other gift certificates to interest our residents. We also planned a Men’s and Women’s chipping and putting contests for prizes to the winners.

The day arrived as we had planned the event at 6:00 p.m. to last till 8:30 p.m. with a BBQ dinner. Our registration table was set up outside to greet our guest which surprised us with a 103 who signed up to attend. This was a larger number than we had from any of our other spring events. It made for a great evening at the golf course for people who normally did not play golf.

Our social committee worked up some great decorations for the tables on our large outdoor patio. They hung paper lanterns in the trees, flower pots for each table with colorful table clothes. Many of these girls did not play golf and were interrupted several times by golfers going and coming but they completed their job in time. It looked very festive.



We had special guests to this event Patrick and Jessica Zeigler who was the recipient of the home built by Extreme Make Over on ABC this past February 14th. Their home was built in Mill Creek in one week with working day and night with the full help from around this area. Patrick Zeigler was a victim of the Fort Hood shooting and his fiancé attended to him during his long recovery. The Makeover People gave them a wedding and this new home. He is still in therapy and we were happy to have them attending this event.



The putting and chipping contest was a big hit as many who did not play golf took their turn to try their luck. It drew a good size audience with much laughter and cheers when they came close to their targets on our putting green. We were all very pleased with this spring event and the good reports from those attending. If you live in a gated community or like ours try to plan an event at the golf course as a way of interesting new members.
