Instead, members of our Club Board decided that approved and planned projects come second to their own personal accomplishments. I don't see High Bridge ever getting done so long as we have a board who pigeon holes it's plans with every new development.
The club has received multiple thousands of dollars but doesn't have the organizational leadership to put it to use.
With the Board circumventing club decisions, undermining club appointed committees, alienating its members, stockpiling cash reserves without any accounting or accountability, and refusing to hold regular meetings... we need a new and reliable way to keep up our courses.
I see a problem but no solution in my post... sorry for that.
Possible Solution: Assign a groundskeeper to each of the sites or courses.
Rather than the Facilities coordinator being responsible for everything in 3 very different settings, one person could help develop each course in a different way.
This would provide an opening to make the three courses into completely different golf experiences.
It would also make sure that the addition and development of Sekani doesn't leave Downriver and High Bridge lacking attention over the next year.
You already have an AM and a PRO working on Sekani... with the possible addition of Tom Schott that site could really turn into something special.
Let PRO/AM teams submit annual course development plans to the Board, vote on the best concept and assign a team to each course, they could be responsible for a variety of tasks. They could also report directly to their fellow golfers to find special skills, assimilate ideas, get input, plan work parties, etc.
