ROBINS AIR FORCE BASE, Ga. -- There's golf going on at the Pine Oaks Golf Course, but there's a little more to whet your appetite as well. 

Tons of programs are offered, including a beginners' Nine-Hole Golf League, an April special promotion on Sunday afternoons, and Month of the Military Child specials. 

Be on the lookout this summer for Link Up to Golf and Learn to Play, a program which will be offered again in June. All base personnel are invited to learn to play for $195. That includes lessons, one walking round of golf, a punch card and practice range tokens. 

You've seen the signs around base about Fairways Grille, a new breakfast option for those looking to grab a tasty treat before work. 

Specials include breakfast burritos, breakfast bowls and traditional breakfast plates, as well as a selection of sandwiches. Choose egg, cheese and bacon, chicken, cheese and bacon or egg and cheese. Prices on the menu range from 75 cents a la carte for hash browns, to $4.50 for a breakfast bowl. You can also make your meal a combo for an additional $2. 

Other notable news  
- A familiar face has returned, new superintendent Rusty Singleton, who joins Pine Oaks from the Brickyard Golf Club of Macon.   

- A 20-by-20-feet back porch on the property has been screened in, offering guests more opportunities for events on site. 

Retirement parties, weddings, promotional parties, Wingman events and more can be accommodated for up to 150 guests, standing-room only, at Pine Oaks.

With a new breakfast menu, a new hire, and the summer season around the corner, there's much to be celebrated at Pine Oaks, according to Mike Baker, golf course manager.

"We're starting to pick up. Play is getting better and the golf course itself is getting better. It's definitely starting to look at trending in the right direction," he said.
