About us continued...
The new court final grade, ready for seeding.

Through the extraordinary generosity of the Crowell Construction Company and the financial support of many club members, a full-sized championship croquet court was excavated, leveled, and set for planting by December 2011. During 2012 club members and the staff at Sandwich Hollows Golf Club watered the newly sprouting grass, often daily.
Finally, in early September of 2012, the gorgeous new court was ready for play with a grand-opening tournament and much celebration.
After a summer of busy watering and TLC, the courts are ready for play the morning of the opening tournament.
Let the tournament begin...
Tournament winners, Ed Gardella (middle) 1st place; Bob Kroeger (left), 2nd place; Mike Walsh (right), 3rd place.
The club now has a full sized court, which can be split into two half-size courts, plus the small courts area used for Golf Croquet or Nine Wicket Croquet. This means that currently we have enough space and equipment for 24 people to play at one time.
So please come join us for all the fun!
