Briarbrook Neighborhood News

I received this neighborhood letter from the Briarbrook Community Improvement District (BCID).  It's full of great information about the latest happenings at the Briarbrook Clubhouse and the Golf Course Tournament Schedule for 2012!

Dear Briarbrook Friends,

Amazing is the word many of you have said when discussing 2011 here at Briarbrook. Just one year ago, the Briarbrook Community Improvement District (BCID) took possession of the facility and now we have a restaurant & bar, remodeled swimming pool, remodeled clubhouse, and a wonderful golf course. 2012 is going to be very exciting for the community. Café on the Green is very excited to be the restaurant of the BCID and for the upcoming golf season. Their staff has enjoyed getting to know all of you. The workout room is now under construction and should be completed soon.

We are also replacing the cart path on #4 immediately and more replacement is coming this spring! Work on #4 cart path will begin on Monday January 30th. This will be a major aesthetic transformation for the hole. I am excited to see the finished result once we can complete the finish work with sod. Unfortunately, the hole must be closed during construction of the new path. Please be patient with the construction crew as it could take up to two weeks to complete if the weather cooperates. By skipping the hole, everyone can just take a par on the hole and move on to #5 or just come back around and play #1 again after hole 18. Remember all private cart trail fees go directly into the cart path replacement fund and come spring time, with the remaining balance from 2011 and 2012 renewals, we will be able to get a good amount of paths replaced.

I am beyond words for describing the changes that have occurred and am very excited about the future of our community facility. I think everyone is proud of Briarbrook and excited to spread the word to our friends. This is a great family facility and an incredible value.

Good News!!! The 2012 rates will remain the same as 2011. The annual memberships will still be available for a discount if paid up front. Monthly payments are an option but ACH (automatic payment) through a checking or savings account will be required. Both locker rooms now have very nice showers for your use. The locker rooms are complete and lockers are now available for rent. There are several lockers that have been in use but we don’t have record of who is using them, nor do we have an extra key. Please inform us if you have a locker and whether you want to keep it for this year. We need to know this by 3/1/12 or we will be forced to replace the locks and remove the contents in the lockers. The locker fees will help fund towels and shampoo/soap. The towels will be for locker room use only and not for golf course use.

Briarbrook has also added more events for 2012. Some events require shotgun start and some just call for you to sign up and play anytime during that day with whomever you want and the results will post the next day. Below is a list of tournaments Briarbrook will be hosting. These events are open to the public but members will receive a discount.

  • March 17, 2012 Modified Stableford: This is a points-based format similar to the former PGA International tour event. This will have a minimal entry fee and as long as you play with someone else that is signed up for the event, you can play anytime throughout the day with any group you want. This way, the course doesn’t get shut down for a shotgun start but still offers an event for all to participate.

I hope these new and different formats will entice more golfers to participate. The formats are designed to get to know more of our Briarbrook family with some geared toward building relationships with people you haven’t played with before while others are designed to play with your best friends. We have had a warmer-than-normal winter but I know we are all ready for the spring and summer temperatures. I am so thrilled and proud of the progress the facility has made in such a short amount of time. Thank you for your continued support and look forward to seeing you soon.

I too am impressed with all the new updates at the club house.  Several times a month my husband and I frequent The Cafe on the Green for their wonderful chicken nachos and some great conversation.  Don't forget that the Restaurant & Bar is open to the public and runs amazing specials.  Come and see for yourself on Saturday February 11th for their Pre-Valentines Day Party Starting at 6:30.  The will have an amazing buffet, great drink specials and the The Geritol Five will be playing from 7:30 - 10:30. 

If this sounds like a great place to live, it's because it is.  I've been a resident of Carl Junction for over 11 years and have truly enjoyed all Carl Junction has to offer.  See what Carl Junction Homes are available and become a part of this great community.
