Letter from the General Manager
Fall is officially here! Beautiful colors and cooler weather can make for some great golf. Here’s to a great fall at Railside.
A quick overview of things to come:
This program gives existing members the opportunity to earn 25 percent off 2020 dues by referring new members to the Club. If new members pay 25 percent of their dues now, they will be able to pay the remaining in December, January, and February. New members will also be able to golf at Railside for the remaining of the year for free. This is for golf memberships only.
Join us for cider, donuts, an old-fashioned hayride, and trick-or-treating on October 26th. Check in is at 11:30am and the hayride begins at 12:00pm. This event is FREE and is for railside members and their families only. We hope you can join us! Email Jennifer to RSVP by Friday, October 18.
Meet the new Union Pavilion Website
We are excited to share a project we have been working on for the past couple of months. The Union Pavilion has a new website! Be sure to check it out here.
Holiday Parties at The Union Pavilion
We still have a few openings for holiday parties. We can host corporate, friends, or family holiday parties! Contact Donna today to book.
As always, thank you all for you support!
