November 2017 Newsletter

PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE I have mentioned in prior writings that Wilmington Country Club is a founding member of the Alliance of Clubs. The Alliance includes premier Country Clubs from around the country that communicate frequently to share problems and solutions. These clubs include: Atlanta Athletic Club, Baltimore Country Club, Baltusrol Golf Club, Big Canyon Country Club, Desert Mountain Club, River Oaks Country Club, Southern Hills Country Club,The Country Club, Capital City Club, Carmel Country Club, Cherokee Town and Country Club, The Country Club of Virginia, Chevy Chase Club, Congressional Country Club, Johns Island Club, andWilmington Country Club As you can see, this is a rather prestigious group of clubs that experience similar issues but may have different solutions.Therefore every year, one of the Clubs hosts a weekend for each Club’s General Manager and President. This year, it was our turn to host this group.Along with our General Manager, Gary Ferguson and I were proud to representWilmington Country Club at this meeting September 30th - October 2nd, 2017. We had many meetings as a group and some with only the Presidents to share ongoing Club issues and solutions.We also heard from Club industry experts with data as to how our Club compares to other Clubs. I can assure you that our Club continues to be a leader among these Clubs. We also had the opportunity to “show off ” our Club to these other Clubs. Based on the feedback received, they were very impressed with our facilities and staff. It once again reinforced how fortunate we are to be members at Wilmington Country Club.
