It’s been a crammed month of June. I think the later start this year, coupled with the poor Spring weather during May, has pent-up the demand for golf. And now we’re seeing it!
But I’ve finally carved a few minutes out of the day to do a way-overdue blog post.
The new Clubhouse at Victoria Park Valley is finally open, and the exterior landscaping is looking great! It was a tough few weeks back in May, when the building was being used while landscaping and construction vehicles were kicking up a dust storm! However, it’s looking great, and the customers love it.
At the East course, we’re getting ready for our 40th Anniversary celebrations – to include a public golf special on July 5, and a Members Field Day Luncheon on July 6.
At both courses, we are trying a unique public golf promotion: “Pay What You Think It’s Worth” green fee: June 29 at the Valley and July 5 at the East. We’re confident this will drum-up a lot of interest, and hopefully entice some players who haven’t golfed at our courses before! naturally, we’ll have a friendly staff member at the 18th green to greet the golfers at the end of their rounds and collect payment. I’ve heard of this promotion at other types of businesses, so we’ll see what happens!
Here’s a great picture of the East course’s 1st Tee (now the 10th tee) taken in 1975. Notice the 3-wheeled cart!
