Board Action on Golf Task Force Recommendations

The Board of Directors would like to recognize the efforts of the Golf Task Force.  In evaluating the recommendations, the Board agrees with the recommendations put forth by the Task Force.

Recommendations:

  1. Berksdale South – The 9-holes of Berksdale that are currently closed should remain closed. The Board agrees with the recommendation from the Task Force.
  2. Berksdale North – Berksdale North will remain open, unless there is a triggering event (i.e., a devastating flood). The Board agrees with the recommendation from the Task Force.
  3. Kingswood – Kingswood will remain open, unless there is a triggering event (see below). The Board agrees with the recommendation from the Task Force.
    1. If rounds go up to 165,000 per year, the POA should begin investing funds to mitigate flood issues and bring the course up to the same standards as the other four courses. The Board agrees with the recommendation from the Task Force.
    2. If rounds decrease to below 120,000 per year, the Board may consider closing this course. Management is tasked with taking all reasonable measures to increase rounds.  The Board agrees with the recommendation from the Task Force.
    3. Future major flood damage could result in a re-evaluation of the golf course. The Board agrees with the recommendation from the Task Force.
  4. Country Club – The POA should target funding for flood mitigation to the Country Club as quickly as possible. The Board agrees with the recommendation from the Task Force.
  5. ARKMO – The POA will not pursue a golf course at ARKMO at this time. The Board agrees with the recommendation from the Task Force.

The Board of Directors would like to thank the Golf Task Force for their efforts.
