The Kimberley Golf Club Executive held our first meeting of the year this past week.
We have received many inquiries from house-bound members about when the course will be opening. Tim reports that to date he is very happy with the weather conditions we have experienced so far this winter. While we still have a couple of months to go, if the current trend continues we should be looking at a normal mid to late April opening.
Duncan MacLeod from Purcell provided us with an update on their immediate plans for the golf course and ongoing developments with the school. They are making positive progress on both. With regard to the golf course there is some new equipment for Tim in the works and possibly some other new additions for the pro shop and food and beverage. Final details are just being worked out as we speak. Duncan also informed us that he is working with Joanna about some improvements in the lounge, some menu options and expanded hours of operation for this season. As things progress, Purcell will keep us in the loop.
The events committee is meeting to finalize event and tournament details for this season and work out schedules with Purcell. Although we expect we may still need to follow similar COVID rules to last season, there should be an opportunity to put on most of our usual events with minor modifications in compliance with provincial health rules that may be in effect over the summer.
The membership committee is waiting on possible revisions to membership perks, such as reciprocals with other courses, discounts, etc. These will be posted prior to the start of the season.
Purcell has developed a new logo (see below) which includes a reference to the club. The board is very pleased with it. The inclusion of our club name is wonderful and demonstrates the partnership we are in. You should be seeing this logo on the new carts, at the entrance and around the clubhouse and pro shop in the spring.
We still have more work to do in preparation for the start of the season. Watch for future newsletters as more information becomes available.
