Dear Spring Run Member,
By now, most of you have heard that we are considering partnering with The Golf Guys, Inc., to provide merchandise for the Pro Shop. It was presented at the April Board Meeting, but no action was taken until more information was available. I anticipate more to come soon, but wanted to address the rumors that this would be a “handshake agreement”.
At the last meeting, I mentioned that the terms of the arrangement were quite loose, indicative of how The Golf Guys wished to operate. They do a lot of business with a handshake. It involves a lot of trust, and I think there is a good deal of mutual trust in this situation as well. All that said, there will be a written agreement with terms that are specific to each party’s responsibilities.
After meeting with the club that developed this program, we feel assured that there is significant upside for our members, and little to no downside.
So, we will either continue our operation as usual, or partner with The Golf Guys this summer. As was mentioned in the last Board Meeting, we need to arrive at a decision very soon so that we have time to prepare for either outcome. I will update this blog in the next week or so, so keep an eye out for it.
