We frequently get asked about the meaning of our Tag Line `Catch the Spirit`. There are many connotations depending on the person or the circumstance.
We caught the ``Spirit” long before we put the first spade in the ground. If you stand by the west edge of the 6th green overlooking the vast horizon you will be standing where our vision for Settlers’ Ghost grew. If open to it, you might even have your own Spiritual moment there.
``Spirit`` is the commitment to lead a team to create our vision of Settlers’ Ghost. The nucleus of this Team is still intact and have dedicated their heart and soul in making the ``Spirit`` of Settlers` Ghost an experience for everyone to enjoy.
Another connotation is Team ``Spirit`` and this is one of many reasons for our success. Our synergistic and loyal team is focused on making Settlers’ Ghost a unique place to be. Our “Spirit “of caring is what separates us from our competition. We always care about you and want you to have an enjoyable experience while playing our course or dining in our restaurant.
``Spirit`` lies in the optimistic and helpful attitude of the owners, the management team and our staff. We believe this is an environment whether at work or at play that can and will make your experience here positive and fun.
We also have Human “Spirit” recognition throughout Settlers’ Ghost. This would be our tribute to those that have influenced our project and have passed on. We recognize their connection or contribution by planting a memorial tree or plant in our memorial garden. We find comfort and strength that a part of their Spirit may watch over us.
Our Name and our Logo lends itself to the “Spirit” of movement which was the transition of inhabitants that existed on the property before it became a golf course. John Hughes our Superintendent and resident historian named our course. His research revealed that Huron Indians and British Settlers once resided in the area. An archeological study was done, and several Huron Indian pottery pieces and arrowheads artifacts were identified. So the word Ghost in our name refers to the “Spirit” of the first two Settlers that lived on the property where the golf course was built.
If you look closely at our Logo you will see both a Huron Indian head and the image of the immigrant Settler the two “Spirits” that previously inhabited the site of Settlers’ Ghost. Our Name and Logo respectfully reflects on the past so these people although long gone will not be forgotten. Their “Spirit” will live on through Settlers’ Ghost.
And finally to address the most frequently asked question. Is the Ghost haunted? We can’t say for sure but there have been some unexplainable occurrences in our Clubhouse which once was the Homestead. No one has been witness to these “Spirits” but there has been evidence that leads to a strong possibility. Whatever your beliefs the stories from our staff cannot be denied and will leave you with a suspicion of presence.
Perhaps the ``Spirit`` will be the prevailing feeling you will get after enjoying a perfect day on the golf course or from simply enjoying a nice dinner on our patio. Our Staff is dedicated to bringing you the best experience and the lingering feeling to want to come back.
Whatever your definition of “Spirit” is I am sure you will find it at Settlers’ Ghost. Should you want to share your “Spirit” experience after being here, send it to the author and we will send you a in the “Spirit” gift from Setters’ Ghost.
