It is that time of the year when your Board is entrusted with the task of looking long and hard at Membership Fees.
Your Board is here to represent the wishes of the members. Following feedback from members, increases have been kept to a bare minimum. The increase is essential for our Club to remain sustainable.
Whilst our Affiliation Fees have risen by 5%, our full membership will increase by only 3%.
Non Full memberships will increase by a higher percentage but these are reflective of a lower membership rate.
Your Board is constantly looking at ways of decreasing costs on the course without compromising our beautiful Golf Course and surrounds as well as increasing revenue.
Maximising visitor revenue is imperative as Golf related revenue has to increase. Green Fees and Cart Hire have not been increased at this point, however, analysis over the next 2 months, may see a small rise in these areas to increase revenue from our visitors.
2017/2018 membership renewals will be as follows:
Full Membership $495.00
Recreational and Beginners $270.00
Social Members $25.00
Our Community Service participants have started and we are very grateful to Terry Howe along with Noel Nicholas and Brian Dudley who are assisting with signing them in and supervising jobs organised by Terry.
We have had a number of functions, all successful, with great feedback. Once again, thank you to all involved. The “Evening With Jane Bunn”, organised by the West Berriquin Irrigators was well attended and very informative. Our Indian Night is fully booked so we look forward to seeing a big crowd (160 people) on 14th July.
The Corporate Day on 12th May was an enormous success for the Club with over $11,0000 raised. This money will be invested back into the course with as much as possible being spent locally. This major fundraiser was ably organised by Adam Wettenhall. David Grant’s entertaining, after dinner speech was enjoyed immensely by everyone in attendance. Winners on the day was Brian Jennings’ team. Rob Landale’s team, 2016 winners, finished in second place. Once again, special thanks to our generous sponsors.
Congratulations to all the winners at the recent Winter Classic and thanks to all those who contributed to a very successful weekend, in particular our sponsors Riverina Watermatic, Deniliquin Tile Centre and Cleaner Carpets Deniliquin.
The Volunteers Day was successfully run on Sunday 18th June. Our fabulous volunteers played 12 holes of golf, followed by lunch and refreshments. A great day was had by all.
We are looking forward to the NSW Vets Week of Golf being held on our course from 9th to 13th October.
