|Member Guest restriction ended…..and more news!|
|This is just a brief update for members from your Management Committee:
Many golf clubs nationally have benefitted from the unique circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic i.e. no cricket, football, rugby etc and Bracken Ghyll is no exception.
To that end the Club welcomed 29 new members in July and now has a record number of 7 day members (2020-326, 2019-265. Plus 23%). Total membership in all playing categories is 533 (2020) v 429 (2019). Plus 24%.
Your Committee has had no discussions and has no current plans to introduce limits in any membership category.
The 1pm restriction for member guests has now been lifted. However for pace of play reasons members are requested NOT to book member guests in tee slots before the start of competition on competition days.
TEE-BOOKING LEAD TIME
Just a reminder that the lead time for tee-booking has now been extended from 5 to 14 days.
The Club is now managing the bar ‘in-house’ and George and his team are becoming well and truly established. The early financial performance is also very encouraging.
Your House Committee is also keeping our catering offer and the government’s relevant COVID guidance under constant review but if you smell bacon butties any day soon please don’t assume these could be for you.
In order to sustain the Club’s image and reputation we will be honouring visiting party bookings made before the COVID lockdown which included a food component e.g. tea/coffee & bacon butty before play and/or hot meal after.
NO SECTION AGM’S
In the light of current guidance and the local lockdown all three sections of the Club (Men, Ladies and Seniors) have agreed not to hold section AGMs this year and that their current officers will remain in post for another 12 months unless in exceptional circumstances.
CLUB AGM, Thursday 12th November
The Club’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) will have to be held in some form to comply with company law e.g. to formally adopt the accounts. There are also a number of significant Officer positions to be elected as below:
The form of the AGM will be discussed at the next meeting of your Management Committee on 24th August but should you be interested in any of the above positions please advise the Secretary at email@example.com
AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST – THOSE REMINDERS…..
* Please do NOT congregate around the clubhouse entrance, in the entry corridor or on the patio. Be aware of social distancing at all times.
And that’s about it for now.
Play safe and stay safe and please don’t hesitate to contact me as below should you need any further information or clarification.
