Matt has started evaluating hole handicap ratings for the course using a process developed by the USGA. He will need the leagues to provide him with members’ scorecards. This will be a long process, but with the input from our members will ensure accurate information that will result in the appropriate handicap assignments.

Rocky Top 10 Theater has filmed and produced a commercial of Lake Tansi Golf Course. Matt did the voice over, and the commercial is shown prior to each headline movie. This is just another program Matt has put in place to give us more exposure, thus resulting in more play. More play, more
