The meeting was called to order at 2:00 P.M by Chairperson Barry
The minutes of the January meeting were approved.
Bill Phillips, of Phillips Golf Design, gave a report to the Committee on
the cost estimates of a putting course at Sisk Park that would be renovated with
synthetic turf. He also reported on the concept for the putting and
chipping green concept at Cottonwood with cost estimates for each project.
The cost estimate for the project at Sisk Park would be $163,208.00 and
$240,197.28 for Cottonwood. If the waterfall feature at Cottonwood was
taken off, $60,000 could be subtracted from that figure. Barry wants to
present something at the next Board Meeting. After a lengthy discussion,
it was decided that Sisk Park could be delayed as synthetic turf can be done at
any time. Bob Keltz suggested presenting the drawing for the Cottonwood
Putting and Chipping Green concept at the Golf Workshop which will be held on
February 20th. Everyone agreed that this was a good idea.
Bill Todd - Bill reported that a lot of bunker and tree
work has taken place. Asked about Sisk Park, Bill stated that artificial
turf is getting better and would be much easier to maintain. Prism flags
should be here next week. Asked about the sand in the bunkers at Palo
Verde, Bill said it will settle down with water and mechanical raking.
Troy Ford - Troy reported that this is a very busy time of year and went
over the various events that are taking place with both clubs.
Annuals are ahead of what was budgeted for this year. Comment Cards are in
the Pro Shop. Asked about score cards, Troy sees no reason to put another
box out there as most members have score cards and the rangers can give them out
Greg Tokash - Greg went over the various upcoming events taking place at
Palo Verde. It is an extremely busy time at PV as well. Rich
Featherstone asked if he and Chuckie were working on a pre-pay signup sheet for
the buffet after golf for Friday P.M. Couples.
Greg stated that the signup
sheet will be up starting tomorrow.
Barry reported that the Golf Workshop will be held
February 20th at 2:00 at San Tan. Barry asked the Pro Shops to put signs
up and that as many as possible from the Golf Committee be there. He also
asked the four clubs to advertise it.
Barry addressed the proposed
Rationale/Justification for the Cottonwood Men’s Member/Guest Tournament that he
sent to the Committee. Bob Schaedel asked that the actual numbers of open
tee times be added to the proposal. After discussion, the Board will be
asked to make the final decision. Dick Baker made a motion to recommend to
the Board that the Rationale be reconsidered. The motion was seconded and
Bob Schaedel stated that the second annual Neighbors Who Care
Tournament was held, and that there are many local companies that are willing to
donate. He suggested that the four clubs look in to co-sponsorships.
Barry reported that he had a question from a
homeowner regarding personal responsibility for damage that is caused by an
errant shot. (Page 19 in the “Little Book of Golf Rules”). Richard
Featherstone stated that an attorney advised that the person who hit’s the ball
is responsible for any damage. This rule will be left as stated in the
Barry asked about the
consensus from the four clubs regarding this year’s golf calendar. The
consensus was that they like the golf calendar the way it was last year.
