ERGC Receives Ross Society Grant
Last fall, we let Mr. Becken know about our "course completion" project planned for 2018. He encouraged us to apply to the DRS Foundation for a grant to help with the project. We did, and the Foundation subsequently approved a $ 6,000 grant to ERGC. Through the generosity of the DRSF, two new tee boxes that were unfunded "future projects" were completed this spring along with our other course improvements.
