CGC Strategic Response
Dear Executive Committee,
The purpose of this letter is in response to the most recent communication regarding the CGC Strategic Plan Update.
First and foremost, we appreciate your efforts to improve the quality of Cohasset Golf Club. As a group, we respect the financial commitment and committee involvement that has been invested to research potential options that better our club.
Despite the multiple forms of communication to place emphasis on Focus Group attendance, we did not realize that the final decisions and recommendations would be made by these fellow members.
The pool decision is too big of a decision to not include multiple ways to gather membership opinions. Furthermore, this choice will positively or negatively impact membership retention and recruitment of a younger demographic.
Our ask is simple. We are asking for our voice to be heard through the following way:
1. An additional ballot option to work on holes 10, 12, & 13, the $1.5 million (must-have) renovation of the clubhouse, and the added amenity of a pool
2. A meeting with the Executive Committee prior to the release of the ballot to present the importance this ballot option.
We feel that the future of the Cohasset Golf Club is important, especially with local competition of other clubs such as Boston Golf Club and Black Rock Country Club.
It is critical for us to make choices that sustain the future of Cohasset Golf Club, which is all the more reason for our unusual request to be fulfilled.
Based on our current knowledge of ballot items, it will be difficult for us to justify spending significant financial resources on the current recommendations as they will prevent us from revisiting the pool in the near future.
We represent a membership of your future and want to make sure that our efforts in the pool decision have been completely exhausted.
Your immediate attention and consideration is appreciated regarding this critical matter and we look forward to hearing from you.
Members of Cohasset Golf Club
