Light duty work, burning brush, etc.

Look forward to seeing you there.

As you are all aware, last fall a dedicated group of members got together and opened up some specific areas on the course by removing several trees in a few different locations, most notably #16 green/#17 tee areas, as well as #14 green. This made a huge difference in the look of these areas but more importantly, created a much better growing environment for the turf, as they all saw significantly improved turf quality!

It's now October, one year later and we are ready to do it again!! We are hoping to tackle several areas, starting with the right side of #4 along and beyond the tee. From there we will move to the right side of #17 tee, the lower tee, to finish up this area where we ran out of time last fall. We have several other areas on our list but this will be plenty to get us started.

So, if you would like to be part of this group and have a day or two available or more even, then we would love to have you give us a hand!

Please contact Dave MacPhee, Kim Murray, Russell Hendsbee or Grant Dunlop and they can provide more information as to the days, times, etc., that the group is getting together. Or, if that doesn't work for you, please email us back at turfcare@abercrombiegolf.com and we can help you help us!

Thank you in advance for helping make Abercrombie be as good as it can be!!

Frost Delays
   *****

We would like to remind everyone that we are at that time of year when frost becomes an issue. We do not allow playing on frost so should you happen to get here early and there are no signs out yet, please use you very best judgement and if in doubt, do not start.

On most days, our staff will be here well before any of the golfers but this may change a little as we get later in the season.

We will also post it on the website as early as possible whenever we have a frost delay so please be sure to have a look at this as well.

Notice To all Members


On behalf of the Governance and Nominating committee, we are seeking expressions of interest from any member who has a desire to join the Board of Directors of the Abercrombie Country Club in 2015.

Volunteer members of the Board of Directors serve a 3 year term upon appointment by the members at the AGM in January 2015.

In addition to attendance at monthly Board meetings, which typically take 1.5 to 2 hours, Board members are expected to serve on 1 or more committees that meet on a monthly basis for approximately 1 to 2 hours.  The chairperson of each committee assists in the preparation of the report of the committee to the Board.  Committee reports and other Board documents are circulated the week prior to Board meetings for review to ensure all Board members are up to date with committee and management’s activities.  The time commitment to serve on the Board is not significant and it is very important for our members to participate in the running of the Club.

In 2015 the board will have approximately five vacant positions and will be looking to fill these vacancies with members who have experience in but not limited to:

  1. Finance
  2. Engineering/Technical
  3. Marketing / Promotion
  4. Food service / Hospitality
  5. Golf industry / Tournament coordination
  6. Administrative / planning / Organization
If you or anyone you know may be interested in joining your board please reply to me by email at watertest@tncweb.ca or phone 759-2129. I will be very happy to discuss with you your interest in helping to move our club forward.

Sincerely,
Craig Gerrior
Governance and Nominating Chair
Abercrombie Golf Club
