Golf Committee Chair agrees with assessment increase; committee formed Revenue Sub-committee; short-game challenge June 7
Jamin Townsen, Chair of the Hot Springs Village Golf Committee, presented a committee update at the May 19, 2021 Board Meeting.
Townsen said, “the Golf Committee has formed a new Revenue Sub-committee to determine if there are any areas in the Golf Department fee structure to improve cash flow.”
Some things being looked at in this area could affect some of the people that we probably want to protect most – older folks that live here.
Townsen stated, “I am not sure how much we can improve it, but we’re going to take a look at it. Obviously, a lot of that goes away if we able to increase the monthly POA fee, which I think we are working towards and I think that is a good idea, personally.”
Townsen said they worked with the Golf Department to approve new course standards in the “post-COVID environment.”
Currently, the Golf Committee is working with the Rotary Club to put together a short-game skill challenge. This will be held at Magellan on June 7, 2021.
Finally, “a drainage issue was identified in front of the 12th forward tee on Ponce and the concern was brought to our attention by an adopt-a-hole volunteer. The matter was presented to the course superintendent and it was roped off to prevent carts from getting stuck in that area.”
There were no questions from the Board Members.
