Here’s a little secret to life you already know: it’s good to be grateful for the things we have. That’s not to say we shouldn’t have goals and work towards them, but taking some time to reflect on wanting we have already is always beneficial. Heck, we even have a holiday dedicated to that ideal tomorrow. Here are a few things we’re appreciative of this year:

HRGC Members:

We wouldn’t have an operation without the guys and gals that make up our membership. Thank you for being the backbone of our golf course.

Public Players:

Ditto to above. Thanks to the Rapid Citians (not sure if that’s right), area locals and tourists who come to play Hart Ranch.

Maintenance Staff:

Thanks to Adam, David and the entire crew for working their tails off year-round to make Hart the best-conditioned course in the area.

Shop/OC Staff:

It’s nice to see friendly people when you walk into an establishment isn’t it?

Our Setting:

You’d be hard-pressed to find a more tranquil place to play golf than Hart Ranch (especially around dusk).

The TrackMan Sim Room:

Be sure to get out and try it this winter. Not only is it a blast, but you’ll learn a lot about your game.

Our Shop:

If you haven’t stopped in in awhile, we’ve done a little rearranging. Come check it out.

Tiger vs. Phil:

Black Friday is admittedly a weird time to put on a big PPV event, but we bet it’ll be bunches more entertaining than the national sports media is giving it credit for.

Hole #15:

For teaching us all that our score doesn’t matter until we get through you.


For being the most infuriating, fantastic, cursed, marvelous, annoying, remarkable, nauseating, terrific, disheartening and incredible game ever devised.

Have a great Thanksgiving everyone, and be sure to take advantage of our Black Friday deals all weekend long. Happy golfing!
