Members and Friends,
We hope this message finds you healthy and ready for another season at CCB. As you are no doubt aware, the Governor has extended his Stay Home, Stay Safe order until May 15. While our current target opening date is May 16, we are keeping a close eye on the situation and are prepared to open as soon as it is safe and permissible to do so.
When we do open, things will look very different at the club to keep us all safe – we will be strictly adhering to the guidance issued by the State and VGA. More info on VGA guidance can be found here.
Some news and notes:
- Social distancing at the club – we encourage you all to take advantage of our beautiful golf course while getting your exercise and practicing social distancing. Please keep in mind that the golf course is closed to play, so refrain from bringing your clubs on your walks! We are all understandably getting stir crazy and itching to play golf, but the last thing we as a club need is for word to get out that we’re allowing play when we aren’t supposed to be. Also, be aware that the clubhouse is closed, so we have no restrooms or drinking water on site.
- As we previously mentioned, our annual workbee was cancelled. Bill and Mitch have done a tremendous job getting the golf course ready for play, but they could always use a hand. If you’d like to get some fresh air and work on the course, please contact Bill Evans (802-522-8353), Mitch Evans (802-477-3755) or Eric Lajeunesse (802-522-7141).
- Our fleet of 50 golf carts has arrived and they look great! We’re in the process of adding CCB logos which will really make them pop.
- Huge THANK YOU to all those who have paid your 2020 dues! The financial climate is uncertain for us all, so any payments are greatly appreciated. We will happily set up payment plans upon request.
Please note that all plans are subject to change. We are doing our very best to keep abreast of the situation and keep CCB in the best possible position to succeed this season. We appreciate all that you do for our club and look forward to seeing you all very soon!
