Grande Meadows held its 2021 AGM on March 31. It was attended by over 25 members who heard reports from all committees chairpersons as well as Chairperson Keith Howse. Reports showed that even though we lost some money during the 2020 season due mostly to the Covid-19 pandemic there was an increase in the number of people who played golf at Grande Meadows last year. This bodes well for the future.
Letters should go out to last year’s membership in the near future soliciting your participation for the 2021 golf season. The Board of Directors is asking that members pay up the membership fees before the end of April in the hope that it will allow us to take advantage of some government funding. As an incentive for those who sign up before April 30 there will be a pass for 10 free starter buckets of range balls as well as a $10.00 Mulligan’s Restaurant gift certificate. We look forward to your continued support.
If you were a member last year and haven’t received your membership renewal letter from Grande Meadows please contact Kim via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Course & Clubhouse Opening
The budget for the 2021 season presented and passed by membership at the recent AGM is for an opening date of May 17. An early opening will mean an extra cost for workers that isn’t budgeted for and will result in further losses for the course. With that in mind there has been some discussion to opening the course early. So we are soliciting members feedback to see if they are willing to pay a nominal fee to play golf for days prior to the May 17. Please pass along your thoughts to Chairperson Keith Howse at email@example.com, Bill Lee at firstname.lastname@example.org or Grande Meadows at email@example.com.
