In case you haven’t heard, changes will be occurring in the near future that are expected to affect our community in a very positive manner. This news is what Stan Walker was hinting at in October at the Fall Feast, but negotiations had not yet reached a point that allowed any disclosure of details. Here are some that we know of at this time:
A contract has been signed with a new golf course manager that will go into effect on March 1st! Some of you may remember Paul Lavin who was the golf pro here at Holmes Harbor when Mark Schuster owned it; before course maintenance was abandoned. Paul has been successfully managing a golf course on the mainland and has now entered into a contractual agreement with Holmes Harbor Sewer District. As you might expect, he is very familiar with this course and is enthusiastically looking forward to again being a part of its operation.
Details about how the operational transition will occur are not known at this time, but we do know that the pro shop will again be located in the old clubhouse. It is also known that the signed contract includes a clause that requires reimbursement to the District for certain maintenance expenses related to necessary upkeep for the proper distribution of treated sewer water. This responsibility will be assumed by the new operator on an incrementally increasing basis over a period of five years.
In the meantime, it is important to acknowledge the much appreciated contribution that Craig Moore has made over the many recent months. Without benefit to himself, he has been able to at least keep the golf course in operation, and to maintain it as well as he could. If he hadn’t stepped forward when he did, there would not now be a golf course. Instead Holmes Harbor Golf quite simply would have deteriorated beyond a reasonable point of reclamation. And, altho’ it may not seem that way, Craig’s efforts have lessened the financial burden on us, the ratepayers. Many, many thanks, Craig!
