SVRA Golf Report June 26, 2010
I’d like to first thank the 2009/2010 Golf Committee for the hard work, dedication and success we have had this last 12 months. One of our primary goals was to identify a financial baseline for the overall golf business. We then developed and implemented new strategies geared at getting the overall golf business out of the red and actually making a profit. A very lofty goal given the hard economic times, short season, and some really lousey wet springs the last two years.
The total expenses for Golf and Greens in 2009 was $539,978
The total income for Golf and Greens in 2009 was $509,199
The difference needing subsidized by Association members was just $30,779 divided by 2016 lots = $15.27 per lot. Most would say a very good investment. There were 19,920 rounds played in 2009 which is about a 10% decrease over 2008.
(The 2009-2010 golf committee was Myrna Archibald, Liz Beck, Sharon Chumley, Kathy Dietz, Lois Jantz, Bonnie Johnson, Randy King, Bob Lujan, Jean Madsen, Bob Manning, Korry Wheeler and Gary Braun.)
The Golf Committee has already met twice this year, identified a list of new goals for the 2010-2011 golf operations and reviewed the golf performance data to date. Through mid June our overall golf rounds are down by 23% due to the rainy weather. Golf Pro shop sales however are slightly up primarily based on several golf carts Randy has sold. The weather in the last two weeks has also made a favorable turn allowing us to have many successful events including the Star Valley Hospital Tournament played here last Friday.
Today, Saturday, Property Owners election day, is free golf, free swimming and free tennis to our Association members and their immediate families. Please checkout and enjoy this beautiful place, and see for yourself all the hard work so many people do to keep it this way.
