First, a big thank you!

As we close out the 2020 golf season, I would like to thank all of this year’s members, employees, customers and the community of Wilmington. Without a doubt, this past year has been a challenge for everyone, but with your help and patience on a daily basis, 2020 was an amazing success.

This year has brought a lot of changes and milestones to The Elks 797 G.C. We will continue every day to bring you a better golf course, driving range and lodge. We have signed a 5 year lease for 55 brand new Yamaha golf carts. This will ensure that every 5 years we will have a new fleet of golf carts. We have purchased a brand new ball dispenser, equipped with a credit card machine for the driving range. Doug and his staff have worked tirelessly to clean up the golf course as well as maintaining the golf course and keeping it in the best shape it has been in a long time. Doug and I will continue to work together to provide the best possible golf course for you!

Don’t forget, we have the best indoor golf simulators around! Don’t let that swing go away, come in and check out our newly renovated lodge, grab some great food and play some golf inside!

So as 2021 approaches, we NEED you! As we look back on the success of 2020, it makes 2021 just as exciting and as important. The Elks 797 G.C & Lodge is being talked about again, we are growing again and now is the time to sustain it and take it to the next level.

In this packet, you will find a few important documents:

1. 2021 Membership Pricing & Membership Application

2. Season Pass Holders Code of Conduct & Cart Agreement – these will need to be filled out and signed when turning in your 2021 Membership Application


Thanks for your continued support,

Randall Davis, General Manager
