b'directors message Positive Changes at Oak Knoll Golf CourseA Division of APRCIf you havent been to the Oak Knoll Golf Course lately,then you need to check it out. Our golf course staff has been busy making improvements on the course andthe clubhouse and those improvements are opening the course to a wider range of participants. Several years ago, APRC took actions to make improvements to attract a more diverse set of users. Some of the early improvements were the introduction of FootGolf and promoting the course as a walking route during early mornings and evenings. Those changes made a positive impact on the course, but we didnt stop there.2020 SEASONOver the last year, APRC has changed management at theMARCH \x13 OCTOBERcourse and refocused on the emphasis of diverse users at Oak Knoll. In 2019 alone, Oak Knoll Golf Course has added a new restaurantMarys BBQa great place to have a sandwich and a drink and relax a bit with friends. The course has hosted several weddings and with our new food partner, we can offer event space and catering packages for anniversaries, birthday parties and reunions. Also in 2019, we provided complimentary instruction to over 40 veterans and provided over 200 hours of free instruction. This summer, we began a free concert series where we rocked the knoll with The Brothers Reed in July, the East Main Band in August and Hog Wild will perform on September 21. In addition to the new events, Oak Knoll is still a great place to golf. This year the course hosted four new tournaments and we are now participating in programs like the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Certification while we are getting greener with a new fleet of electric powered golf carts. Oak Knoll Golf Course has been Ashlands hometown course for close to a century, and we hope that you will take the opportunity to make it yours and take part in some of the many amenities we offer there.
