The minutes of the Mach 29, 2017 meeting were reviewed on-line and sent to each board member.  Each had revisions and revised minutes re-sent and approved.


Treasurer Arnie Aviles submitted the treasurer report that reflected a balance of
$5,160.18. A motion to approve the treasurer's report was made by Rich Guzik with a second offered by Jack Ullom.  The motion was approved unanimously.

Old Business

Since instituting the recording of times at the beginning of play and at the 10th hole, finishing times have improved.  An example is that last week, (tournament), the last group finished at 4:25.  This week the last group finished at 4:15.

Scholarship fund was short $250 and was made up with general funds.  The shortage occurred because the number of months to accrue the funds was shorter by three months this year.  The general fund will be reimbursed over the next couple of months and the scholarship will be issued in September of 2018.

A motion was made by Dan Matthews to award scholarships to Oxnard and Ventura the High school seniors rather than that of the whole county.  The motion failed to get a second.

New Business

Discussion on the impact of the new proposed rules of golf.  Will they impact our weekly and monthly play?  Matthews will pull website information and distribute to the board for discussion at our next board meeting.

Discussion of bare spots being Ground Under Repair even though they might not be outlined with white paint.  Arnie will look up the appropriate decision and distribute to board via email and discussed at next meeting.

Club Championship in August.  Three groups: Overall Gross (THE Club champion) played from the White tees, Overall Net played from White and Gold with the differential being applied for competition from different tee boxes, Super Senior Championship played from Gold or white tees with the differential for tee boxes applied. $10 to enter championship but there will also be regular completion at $5 each day. First day will be August 16th and final day (shotgun and lunch) on the 23rd.  The club championship will pay the three winners and runner-ups.  Payouts are estimated to be $100 to Champion, $75 to Super Senior Gross and $50 to Overall Net.  The 4 low gross players from the whites, on the first day, would play together, from the #1 tee on the second day, followed by the 4 low gross from the SS entries.

Discussion on the November monthly tournament that is supposed to be computer generated foursomes and played as a scramble.  Some on the board thought that we would have a poor turnout so it was decided that Matthews would send an email to the membership and ask them if once a year they would like to meet some of the other members.

Don Luxmore made a motion that our end of month Nassau tournament be paid out to 25% of those in each flight.  Seconded by Matthews and all agreed.

A motion to adjourn the meeting was made by Arnie Aviles and seconded by Don Luxmore.  The motion passed at 3:30pm

The membership luncheon that was normally held in December was changed to January 18, 2017.  The reason for the change was due to the recent fire at the golf course which did major damage to the dining hall.

A discussion was held regarding players who don't show for their assigned tee time and do not notify the Pro Shop.  This has been a problem and Rich Guzik and Dan Matthews will work together to come up with a plan to improve the situation.

A problem with slow play was also discussed.  It was suggested that there should be at least one more marshall assigned to each course on Wednesdays.  That would help monitor the speed of play.  With more players on the course on Wednesdays, which includes the Senior Men's Club, another marshal would also be able to help in responding quicker to any emergencies which may occur on the courses.

The Hole in One pot was to be capped at $2,000.00.  Any amount collected over the $2,000.00 willl be applied to the Scholarship Fund.

A discussion was held regarding the membership application and the requirement to fill a new one out when the annual renewal is due.  After a great deal of discussion, it was decided not to make any changes to the form.

Board members present were Don Luxmore, Arnie Aviles, Rich Guzik, Jack Ullom and Bob Ellis.  Jim Tucker was not in attendance.

The Member luncheon held on August 31, 2016 was discussed.  The quality of the luncheon was not up to the standards of previous meals enjoyed by the membership.  Steve Mason indicated he had discussions with Brian and Belinda from the food service department of River Ridge about the disappointment in the quality of the meal served and the service.  He stated they incated they would improve.  Also discussed was the possibility of having an outside caterer for our luncheons next year and having the lunches outside in the bbq area.  The December luncheon will be Baron of Beef, with the members paying $10.00 and che club picking up the rest of the cost.

The recently completed Club Championship was discussed and the challenges that occured as a result of the Tournament Director being out of town.  Don Luxmore indicated he would not be out of town during future club championships.

                  Super Senior Champion    $75.00
                  Net Champion                   $50.00
The motion passed.

Don Luxmore brought up the possibilty of allowing players to post their own scores.  Apperently some members wanted to do this so scores for Wednesday tournaments could be reported to SCGA to reflect up to date handicaps that would include the most recent scores.  After discussion, it was decided not to allow the players to post their own scores for the Wednesday weekly play and monthly tournaments.

Arnie Aviles asked that more details be provided by the Tournament Director as it relates to the skins paid out each month.

=====================================================================

September 16, 2015

Meeting called to order 1:00pm by President, Steve Mason

Treasure report was accepted.  Treasurer, Arnie Aviles, brought some concerns that the club funds are getting low.  The club had to pay a $35 bad check fee to the bank this month.  Not enough money in the account.  He determined that since the club has gone to "gift card" payouts on monthly tournaments, the club does not have an open balance of funds like it used to have when we did the "gift certificate" system.  The club would immediately buy the "gift cards" from the pro-shop in each player's names after the tournaments.

In an effort to bring the club funds back to a positive cash flow, the board discussed different ideas:

One idea was to cut the "closest to pin" winnings to $5 instead of $10.  After discussion, the board voted to keep the "closies" at $10, and the pay-out for the "closie" money would come from the $5 entry fees.  The payments for the winners would be reduced to absorb the "closie" pay-outs.

Also discussed was the cost of the quarterly luncheons.  The cost to the member was only $5, and the club was paying the rest, along with a sizeable tip.  Now, the Golf Course Banquet has started adding a 18% gratuity to the bill.  After discussion, the board voted to determine from the Banquet facility how much each meal would cost each member, and the member would pay half while the club would pay the other half.

The issue of the annual "Turkey shoot" and Ham shoot" was discussed.  It appears these events were started because the Club had extra funds left at the end of the year.  After discussion, the board voted to temporarily discontinue these events at this time.

The issue of membership dues was discussed.  Membership fees have not increased in the past 5 years.  After discussion, the board voted to increase fees $5.  Renewal fees will now be $70 and new member fees will be $75.

In October, the ballot for electing club officers will be coming out.  Rich Guzik will be e-mailing the ballots to members at the beginning of Oct.

Meeting adjourned 2:15pm September 16, 2015
