Dear Members & Friends of Canoa Ranch and Torres Blancas Golf Clubs:
March in my mind is a transitional month for us in southern Arizona, probably not so for the rest of the nation. March starts bringing us warmer temperatures and hints of the spring & summer to come. Spring officially starts on Thursday March 19th, so we are getting close to ending our winter season. So far since December 1st, we’ve experienced 42 frost delays and 25 days of rain in this fall/winter season, as compared to 37 frost delays and 21 days of rain for the same period in 2018.
Last month I announced that our Tournament Director of several years has made plans to leave Green Valley for California. This month, I want to introduce Mike Hertel, who has accepted the Tournament Director position. Mike is responsible for coordinating tournaments and small groups. Mike will be happy to schedule your next tournament or small group. Mike can be reached via or mobile phone (520) 222-4700. Mike will help you organize a great event.
We all have been monitoring the progression of the Coronavirus. My disclaimer is this, I am not a physician or health care professional, but I do understand what the impact could likely be to any of us. I am encouraging each of you to monitor major informational and media sites to gather appropriate data for you, your family and friends. You may consider reading:

Jon Vayre and Mike Hertel have a challenging 2020 schedule for Golf Schools, Academies, and Clinics. Please visit our websites for further information. If you need help with any part of your game give Jon a call at 520-235-9821 or email at , or call Mike at 520-222-4700. Jon is now a certified PING fitter, so if you need a new set of clubs, or maybe just a new putter or wedge, please give Jon a call. We’ve already ordered many individual clubs, and complete sets. Get your fitting scheduled with Jon, and get the clubs to improve your game.
On Sunday February 9th 70 members attended a social hour and dinner, with a subsequent question and answer session, with Staff providing responses to a multitude of questions. Thanks to all who attended, and we’ll plan this event for February 2021 again. We have many wonderful events for your enjoyment, so please note your calendars. Additional information will be forthcoming.

Have you been designated to organize a gathering for family, church, your HOA? The Canoa Ranch Clubhouse is the perfect venue for special occasions such as family reunions, HOA events, birthdays, anniversaries and community events. We offer a wide variety of specialty menus from boxed lunches to full breakfast, lunch or dinner. The spacious clubhouse, with its’ own fireplace and view of the golf course, is perfect for small and large groups, seating 90+ in addition to the attached patio for outdoor use. Please email or call Bethany Hardy at 520-352-1080 to reserve your event.
This month’s quote makes a simple statement in this complicated world of today, “Golf is an ideal diversion, but a ruinous disease”, by Gerald Ford. All the more reason to protect yourself, and play golf instead of being impacted by the Coronavirus.
As always, my thanks to all of you for the support you provide, and the patience you have had as we continue to make improvements at both Canoa Ranch and Torres Blancas.
