Dear PDTGC shareholders, members, and community,
Spring weather appears to be on its way and we are looking forward to getting to golf again! After initial observations, the course is still a bit wet right now, but it appears the course has wintered well and should come around wonderfully.
As you all are aware, our world is currently dealing with the effects of COVID-19. As it sits today, golf courses are considered places of public accommodation and are restricted from opening until May 1st based on Executive Orders 20-04 and 20-18 issued by Governor Walz. The allied Golf Associations of Minnesota have requested clarifications to be drafted regarding golf as a recreation, which would in turn allow golf courses to be maintained and open for business at an earlier date. We will continue to monitor this entire situation and keep you updated.
The effects of COVID-19 are changing daily and because of the current stay at home order in place, at a minimum, PDTGC will not open in any capacity until Friday April 10th. We ask that patrons respect this date not only for the safety and health of themselves and the community, but also to allow more time for course conditions to improve. In addition, we are postponing the Co-op Annual Meeting to a date yet to be determined. We will send out a communication when an alternative date has been set.
We assure you that when the law permits, course conditions will be fit, and PDTGC will be ready to open. We are working on operation modifications specific to COVID-19 mitigation and we will continue to monitor state recommendations and regulations if and when we are permitted to open.
To conclude, we want to remind everyone that we will be drawing for a $50 clubhouse gift certificate for those that pay their membership dues in full by Sunday, April 19th. Because the clubhouse has not opened yet, to be eligible for this drawing we ask that you mail your membership payment along with the completed membership form to the course (address above). For your convenience we have attached the membership form to this email. These forms and the 2020 daily rates can also be found online at www.pdtgolfclub.com
Please keep an eye on your emails, our website, and our Facebook page for updates on the COVID-19 situation. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to any of us.
We look forward to seeing all of you very soon. Stay healthy.
Pomme De Terre Golf Club Board of Directors
