Question & Answers
Q - I see some new plans on display in clubhouse and on noticeboard, where are we with this?
A - We have submitted planning application and building regs, we have comprehensive drawings and have now appointed a QS to prepare a bill for tender. Anyone invited to tender will have to give assurance that they can start in January which is still the aim. There is much still to do to ensure that all detailed plans and specifications are in place. We will not start work until such time that we are satisfied all aspects are concluded. The 'target' is January all things being in place!
Q - There seems to be less visitng parties this summer, is this something we should be worried about as it is a key revenue stream and impact on subs?
A - Well you are correct, the pressure on us to have less visitng parites will potentially result in a decrease in greenfees but we hope that other streams assist this shortfall.
Q - Greens seem to be recoving well from the recent works, will there be more inconvenice to members?
A - As it happens the scheduled second treatment has been cancelled due to the very good condition of the greens, well done to all concerned.
Q - What will happen when the club refub happens with regards to bar and catering?
A - we will have temp accomodation from when the project starts, details to be confirmed. But fair to say the clubhouse as we know it will be closed for some months.The intention is still to provide a bar and catering service for golfers.
