Lance Merrihew, Vice President of Marketing and Sales at CourseCo, attended our March HOA meeting.
Lance provided us with a golf course update:
CourseCo will be coordinating non-golf community centric events in order to entice children and women into the world of golf. They’ll be doing junior camps that break barriers – face painting, flashlight Easter egg hunt, neighborhood block parties, and a Christmas theme party.

CourseCo will be making a recommendation to the City of Maple Valley regarding the restaurant by late April/first of May. They would like to keep open lines of communication with the community, and are open to input from the residents.

When asked what CourseCo would like to accomplish by the end of 2019, Lance referenced these items:

  • Stable course condition and able to state the greens are the best in the market
  • Mutually agreed upon decision regarding the restaurant
  • Improved service level
  • Improved dispersion of water and improved design


Date: Saturday – June 1 ST , 2019
Time: 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
