Status of Recreation Committee Request Forms and Issues
Request for a 2nd Marshal for the 27-hole Golf Course
This request has been partially satisfied by the management realigning some duties of the existing staff. This is providing near-continuous presence of 2 marshals on the course. The current budget will not allow for increase of sfaffing.
The city has approved the site of the new courts at the Gate 16 area. The plan is in the custody of the GRF/M&C committee, and the construction plans have been asked for. A budget of $500000 has been approved for the construction of 6 pickleball courts. Tennis courts 9 and 10 are to be restriped for joint use by the paddle tennis and tennis clubs. The current courts site at Gate 12 is to be repurposed. There is a delay due to needing a site permit, which is in the works.
Carts on the Executive Course
This was discussed at the recreation department and deemed to be not feasible. However, there are plans to enhance the executive course in several ways. A new golf club is being planned for the 9-hole course along with handicapping, computer support.
Misc. – Let’s support the Village Games this fall with our members joining in for golf, lawn bowling, and racquet courts play.
Next GRF M&C meeting is 18 September. There should be some resolution on the new courts project – plans and schedule.
We need to support the need for a rebuild of the lawn bowling court.
Note that there is a proposed increase in golf green fees.
There was a plan to replace the large patio chairs at the Village Greens – it has not happened yet. Joel agreed to investigate the status.
Next Meeting – 18 September, 2017 – Clubroom 1, Village Greens – 11:00 am
