GM: June 2020

We begin June with a bit of normalcy and hope things get better as we go. The team has been working hard to make sure your experience is as good as it can be, given our conditions.

At a high level, not knowing what our fall looks like, it appears that “phase 2” will have several positive changes. First, we can group up to 100 outside and inside up to 50. We still need to keep distancing. Grouping does not mean social distancing goes away. Remember, it is not about the rules, but about keeping us all safe.  As we get into the summer season, we will have more visitors and more risk. We should be able to open the pool and showers as we get approval. We will bring back wine tasting, jazz nights, and movie night for the kids.  On the golf course, bag and club cleaning and storage should return soon.

We have taken a conservative approach to our capital items as well as our projects. The new side of the range will be open in July. A key aspect of being at a member-owned club is your involvement. We have two projects that we need volunteers for. First is the “mouse” (membership and house) committee. Unfortunately, we have not had a group working within this committee in quite a while and we need to get it reformed and back and running.

Secondly, we are asking for a group of volunteers to review our website and help us make it better. Susanna Ross and I will head the committee. We need to review the aspects of the website and make it better for everyone.  Please get in touch with me if you’d like to help.

I look forward to seeing you all more now that we are open everywhere. The door is open if you have thoughts or ideas.  Enjoy the summer!

    Jeff,
    Club needs to do a better job of requiring face masks and social distancing in the Grille. Had two occasions to be in the Grille last week and both times, Grille was packed with two groups of six to eight guys sitting around at one table, no masks and no social distancing. It looked like a normal after-golf gathering of several players, pre Covid-19. This should not be acceptable, not even in Phase II.

      Holly,

      In phase 2, it is deemed that anyone that agrees to eat with each other, just as a couple eating with another couple have agreed to eat with each other. The maximum at a table is ten but they don’t have to wear masks, as they are eating and drinking. We can’t enforce masks.

      This is the guideline.
