FROM THE PRESIDENT & THE MANAGER

Hi Members:

 

Happy almost winter! Woo-hoo!

 

It’s November and Mike and I thought it would save you some reading time if we did a joint article in this edition. I feel a bit melancholy as it is my last official article before stepping down at the end of the year. Yet I am confident you are in good hands as Bill English takes the reigns working side-by-side with our awesome Club Manager – Mike!!!

 

Well, the holidays are upon us so come out and celebrate with everyone here at the Club. Among the exciting events that are going on around the Club are the Children’s Christmas Party and holiday brunches, candlelight dinner and a New Year’s Eve social gathering – really the “Adult’s Holiday Party”! Of course, if you’d like to host a holiday event of your own, the team at GLCC would love to help you get your party started. Contact Mike to book a date for anything from a family luncheon to a company event to a deck-the-halls extravaganza! We also have catering menus available for all of your entertaining needs!

 

As you well know, each year we plan for capital purchases and maintenance of the building, equipment and grounds. In 2017, the capital expenditures were mainly focused on bunker sand and drainage, dock and slip stabilization, new golf course equipment, kitchen equipment and a new sound system for all of the dining areas. We hope that you have enjoyed these improvements. Beyond the updates around the Club, we have been dedicated over the past few years to reducing our long-term debt. This year, the Club had a more positive year than initially planned so we were able to pay off a note that was coming due in June of 2018. This is great news as it will now give us the ability to invest additional dollars into the facility while continuing to be fiscally responsible for our current and future viability and success.

 

It would not be a year-end article without mentioning that the beginning of 2018 brings opportunities for you to join the Club committees and be a part of the team forging the future for us. If you are interested in becoming a committee member, please call or email Mike. Committees will be taking shape during the month of January and we hope that you can be a part of them.

 

As the year comes to a close, we would like to say thank you to all of you for your engagement and involvement in all the happenings at the Club. We also would like to extend a note of gratitude to all of the team members, committees, and board members for giving their hard work, time and energy into the Club.

 

We wish you an amazing holiday season with your family and friends, and hope that you have a fantastic start to 2018! Look forward to seeing everyone during the holiday months!
