GAC Minutes 1988 02/10Golf Committee Meeting Minutes, February 10, 1988, 7:00 pm Old Business The minutes from the January 6, 1988 Golf Committee meeting were approved. New Business Hugh Cooke (Recreation Director) spoke to the Committee regarding questions about the feasibility of grooming cross-country ski trails on the Golf Course. He outlined and summarized different sizes of operations and the feasibility of each as it relates to our present facility. He emphasized that a grooming schedule, if adopted, should not plan or budget to groom after the Christmas holidays. Usually by this time, the other Nordic Ski Areas are in full -swing, and the demand to ski on the Golf Course will drop off. Max Williamson moved: The Golf Course Committee will authorize and encourage the City to use the Golf Course in the 1988-89 winter for cross-country skiing at City expense, limited by their own budget constraints. This use should be coordinated with the Golf Course Superintendent. Hormaechea seconded; the motion carried. Clubhouse Discussions: Medley initiated a discussion about an adjacent parcel of land close to the new clubhouse site, that may be of interest to the Golf Course as overflow parking or other uses. The Committee directed Andy Laidlaw and Bud Schmidt to talk to the owners, acquire a legal description and appraise the property if necessary. Andy Laidlaw then reviewed the revised Clubhouse Plan. He explained the rearrangement of the pro shop, kitchen and locker areas as per Committee discussions on January 6. Discussion centered around the club storage area being moved downstairs from the pro shop area. This decision (club storage up or down stairs) was tabled until Andy Laidlaw could discuss it further with John Drips. All the other changes in the design were accepted. Golf Committee Opening: Max Williamson nominated Polly Collins as Golf Committee at -large member to fill the vacancy. Dan Hormaechea seconded the nomination, and the Committee voted unanimously to recommend Polly Collins to the Mayor and City Council. It was noted that this committee member would serve a three year term, from January 1, 1988 to December 31, 1990. The Committee also asked for the Mayor's and City Council's cooperation to expedite the appointment of this vacant seat. Other Business: Bud Schmidt reviewed the current state of the Stringer -Whiteman Development. He said that the Committee might think about tending an offer to buy the land necessary for the construction of a driving range area. This had been discussed with Stringer -Whiteman representatives, and may be a viable alternative. The Committee felt that further review of this idea should be initiated. Meeting adjourned at 9:30 pm. Golf Course Committee Chairman
