  13. New Faces – We welcomed Kaitlin Hardy our new member relations coordinator, Isley Whyte as our new executive chef and Laura Jansone as our new assistant golf professional. We look forward to welcoming Anna Parish, our new private event director this month and wish Becca Curtis all the best as she settles in to her new role as a full-time mom to a beautiful little girl.
  14. We established a fresh, new look for Vue on 30a’s website which will go live in early 2020.
  15. All things new at Vue – Vue’s ads received an updating branding that compliments the new website, which you will begin to see in 2020.
  16. EVENT SOLD OUT! Kudos to our golf operations team and our social committee for a job well done. With all the growth and buzz, its no wonder that the club’s social events and golf tournaments have begun to sell out this year. Register for social and golf events at least two weeks in advance so you aren’t left out of the fun! The easiest way to register is through our new club app which also launched this year.
  17. New commercial spots are live. We had a fun time re-shooting our commercial spots this fall which run locally for the golf club and for Vue on 30a. Thank you to members, Blake & Sarah Svoboda and Lee & Kate Owen for helping us share with others the fun club life at Santa Rosa.
  18. Operation Lipstick and Moonlight Wine & Dine – need we say any more? The teamwork, the food, the weather – the evening could not have been more perfect and the members raised more than $25,000 toward upgrades to the golf clubhouse. Stay tuned for more amazing events from your Operation Lipstick Steering Committee in 2020.
  19. The “Best” is getting Better – we also launched our 2020 branding for the golf club

Despite COVID-19, Santa Rosa continues to provide a place where members can find a slice of “norm”. We are so fortunate to offer an environment for members to spend quality time outdoors or online together, even in uncertain times. The positive atmosphere and wonderful successes shared in 2019 allows the membership to rally and provide the highest level of support. We are better together and the future is bright at your award-winning club!
