Sale of Local Golf Course Complete: New Ownership Shares PlansNORTH CLARENDON, VT (June 13, 2007) – Stonehedge Golf Course announced today that the course has been purchased by Richard “Dick” Bendig and his two sons, Shawn and Chriss. The 9-hole course, Rutland County’s only par-3 golf offering, features 1,107 yards of rolling fairways and well-manicured greens. The course was designed and operated by Robert Matson since 1995.”We are very pleased to have completed the sale and excited about the possibilities this course has to offer local golfers,” said Richard Bendig, President of Stonehedge. “The real beauty of the course lies in its versatility. For the accomplished golfer, we offer an affordable way for them to improve their short game. For the senior golfer, we provide a 9-hole course that can be easily walked or ridden in just over an hour. And, finally, for the younger/novice golfer, we strive to create an atmosphere that allows them to learn the game at their own pace.””I’ve been playing golf for over 20 years and can still remember what it felt like the first time I stepped onto a tee box at a larger, traditional golf course& Simply put, I found the experience to be rather stressful and unpleasant,” said fellow course owner Shawn Bendig. “Here at Stonehedge, one of our primary goals is allowing the less experienced golfer to feel at ease on the course and enjoy their round of golf. Judging from the conversations that we have had with some of our customers and the smiles I’ve seen on their faces as they come off the 9th green, I’d say we’re heading in the right direction.””We are thrilled with how well course conditions have improved in the past two months,” said Chriss Bendig, the final member of the new ownership team. “Our turf manager has the greens playing better every week!”Stonehedge Golf Course is located on 216 Squire Road in North Clarendon, VT 05759 (directly behind Automobile International at the junction of Routes 7 and 103). The course will continue to operate seven (7) days a week from 7:30AM until 8:30PM.For more information or to reserve a tee time, contact:Stonehedge Golf Course ClubhousePh: 1-802-773-2666Website (coming soon): www.stonehedgegolf.com(link is external)
Membership and lending growth, driven by auto loans, continue to power strong credit union results, according to the July’s Monthly Credit Union Estimates.“A combination of a strong economy, low interest rates and great service by credit unions has led to continued fast membership and loan growth,” said Jordan van Rijn, CUNA senior economist. “Memberships are increasing at the fastest pace since the 1980s, and loan growth is being driven by tremendous increases in auto loans, which saw the fastest monthly growth since the 1990s.”Credit union loans outstanding grew 1.1% in July, following a 1% increase in June. Other mortgage loans led loan growth during the month, rising 2.4%, followed by home equity loans (2%), new auto loans (1.6%), unsecured personal loans, credit card loans and used auto loans (all rising 1.3%), and fixed-rate mortgages (0.8%).Total credit union memberships grew 0.4% during July to 112.2 million. continue reading » 8SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr
