Doug Dannevik, manager and golf pro at Scratch Golf, the indoor golf training and instruction facility in Valencia’s Rye Canyon Business Park, issued the following statement by e-mail Friday:
“It is with much regret and sadness that we announce the closing of Scratch effective 12/29/12. While we feel we have been successful with the training of the game of golf, we have not been able to generate enough customers to justify the doors remaining open. We have developed many great relationships over these past 18 months, and wish all of you good luck with your golf game.
“While remaining open for the next 45 days, we will have specials on all of our items for sale: clubs, golf gloves, etc. In addition, we will be maintaining our normal training up until we close. So stop by to say hello, pick up something on sale, or get that lesson you have wanted (and know you need). By the way, both Karen Walker and Justin Doyle of our staff will remain in the SCV, and we hope you will consider them for lessons in the future.
“Thank you for all your support, and hope to see you soon and best of luck to all in the SCV.”
