Riviera Golf Club Members Petition to call an election for the Board of Directors

Election to be held January 2016

We, the undersigned, petition to call on election for the Board of Directors of the Riviera Golf Club, Silang, Cavite Philippines.

We certify that we are members in good standing and are eligible to vote in the said elections.

  • The current Board of Directors has been in power for over 10 years, during this time there have been no general membership meetings called.
  • Under current management, the conditions of the club materially and financially, have deteriorated to an unacceptable level. Management is singularly focused on cost cutting instead of focusing on cost savings through improved operating efficiency.
  • There are no qualified senior managers in place for F&B and Golf Operations.
  • The President acts as the General Manager but is not a full time manager.
  • Members are not updated in Board activities in a timely manner, if at all.
  • The nature and benefits of our club as a Private Members only facility are being eroded by current management practices and "special arrangements" with certain private individuals.
  • Non-members and tourist groups revenues are not maximized to the benefit of the club.

We , as members and shareholders, need to work together to elect a Board of Directors that has our best interests at heart and to restore the club back to the first class golfing venue it once was.

Golf Course & Facilites

  • Non-member groups are being permitted to play during allocated member only hours.
  • Foreign/ Tourist groups are being permitted to play without being accompanied by a member in good standing.
  • Foreign tourist groups are permitted to play in fivesomes despite having no established handicap.
  • Poor maintenance of the golf course.
  • The starters do not enforce timely tee off at the first tees.
  • Marshals put groups on the course ahead of playing groups already on the course without requesting permission of the playing groups affected.
  • Marshals are intimidated by players and do not enforce pace of play regulations.
  • Mandatory calls on Par 3 holes are not observed.
  • Many golf carts are in very poor mechanical condition.
  • Golf carts that suffer flat tires, flat batteries or other mechanical problems on the course are not replaced in a timely fashion.
  • Dining and locker room facilities are shoddy and in a state of disrepair, dress code and other codes of conduct are not enforced.
