Dear Members:

It has now been two months since we moved to our new clubhouse. The contractor has officially turned over the project and the two-month maintenance term has by now expired. Of course, all pending issues have been taken care of satisfactorily and signed off by the Board.

The new clubhouse is operating to our satisfaction and expectation. However, it has probably not escaped your attention that it is taking a long time before the locker rooms, restrooms and golfbag storage are fully operational. Unfortunately, we have to announce that the supplier of all wooden furniture for the cafetaria, kitchen and bar, mirrors and the installation of the bag storage carrousel did not fulfill all his promises and that as a result of that, we had to part ways with him. Luckily, the financial damage was limited and except the fact that we did loose a lot a time, we will stay within the budget. Between now and one week, all lockers and carrousels will be installed and will be available to the members.

The last phase: Monday, February 22, 2016 we will start the demolition of the old clubhouse which is expected to take about two weeks. To be able to successfully complete the first phase we have decided to close the club for all member activities on Monday, February 22, 2016. This means that the club will be off limits to everybody - there will be no golf, no squash and no access to the clubhouse on this day. After the demolition, the parking lot will be leveled and covered with a temporary layer of fine gravel (diabaas).

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask me or any of my colleagues in the Board.

With kind regards.
On behalf of the Board.

Marten O’Niel
Commissioner - New Building
