Dear Spring Run member,
I resume my blogging with a doozey: the dreaded policy on 9 hole Play. If this doesn’t get blog readership and response, nothing will!
In 2005, the Golf Committee recommended and approved a policy for 9 hole play that read: “ Friday, Sat, Sun, and Mon, all 9 hole play will be scheduled from 8:30 AM – 9:15 AM on the back 9, or from 2:30 PM from the first tee. Players at these times would only receive ½ point on the Chelsea system and pay a 9 hole rate.”
This policy has been in effect ever since, and the only changes made to it were to allow play to start earlier on the back 9s and to move up the times from 2:30 to 2 PM.
Of course, no one knew it! Until we posted the policy on the Chelsea web page. In an effort to communicate better.
The Board has the authority to regulate tee times so as to maximize usage of the course and allow as many members to play as possible. However, based on the recent concerns that have been voiced, a subcommittee from the golf committee has been set up to look into issues relating to the policy. Once they have completed their research, they will make a recommendation to the golf committee, and ultimately to the Board for an official vote.
Until then, the policy continues in effect, as it has been for 10 years, awaiting any amendments as may be suggested for the good of the membership.
Hope your Season is going well.
