GAC Minutes 1991 08/13Golf Course Advisory Committee Minutes August 13, 1991 Attending: Dave Engen Dan Hormaechea Ted Whiteman Carl Hoss Charles Denham I. D & D Land Trade After Chairman Engen made the presentation reviewing the appraisal and Don Medley's latest offer, Dan Hormaechea made a motion to table any action until further analysis can be completed. Ted Whiteman seconded and the motion carried unanimously. II. Tee Rebuild Hormaechea informed the committee of the foundation's position on funding, which is they will fund further projects only if they are able to resell lifetime passes if a holder should die. After much discussion on the matter Chairman Engen stated that he feels that the selling of lifetime passes should have been a one time opportunity and that continuing to sell them may be more of a hardship on the course rather than a benefit. He also raised the question of the foundation having control over funds generated from the sale of a city asset - namely a lifetime pass. He feels there is another way to manage these funds, without the foundation. Hormaechea disagreed stating that if the foundation didn't manage these funds then who would have control of them. Hormaechea made a motion for lifetime passes, upon the death of a holder, would be resold by the foundation to further fund Golf Course improvements. No second. No vote. III. Private Beverage Coolers Dan Hormaechea made a motion to prohibit the use of private beverage coolers on the Golf Course. This, in theory, would raise the sale of beverage items for the restaurant. The restaurant would buy/sell beer and soft drinks and supply cooler and ice. The beverages are to be sold at prices competitive to other similar Golf Course facilities. The committee hopes to initiate this policy for the remainder of this season and continue for the following seasons. Carl Hoss's staff, including marshals, would be responsible for enforcing the policy. Ted Whiteman seconded and the motion carried unanimously. IV. Drinking Fountains Superintendent Charles Denham gave estimates on the cost for installation of fountain inside Clubhouse. 1. 4 gal. capacity wall mount refrigerated - $557 installed 2. Same fountain with handicap capability - $667 installed. Funding for this project has yet to be discussed V. Nursery Green Charles Denham sent a sample of local (McCall area) sand to a testing lab. The results came back positive. The sand is suitable for U.S.G.A. putting green construction. The larger particles from screening of this sand will also be suitable for the coarse sand layer in green construction. VI. Slow Play and Non-Play Again the committee commented on the slow play and non-playing public issue. This is an ongoing issue only to be resolved by more strict enforcement of these rules. Carl Hoss told committee that he would extend his 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. marshal hours to later in the evening. This was satisfactory to the committee. VII. Committee Meeting With Mayor Ted Whiteman feels that the committee has no clear direction or course of action, which was the topic of this meeting with the Mayor. He feels that the meeting did nothing to improve the situation. Ted volunteered to author a letter, for the committee to review and approve, to be sent to the Mayor and City Council documenting their concerns. Ted Whiteman moved the meeting be adjourned. Hormaechea seconded and the meeting adjourned at 9:50 p.m. Respectfully Submitted, David Engen
