Course Review and Comments

Response to comments from Mr Fraser

I appreciate the time you have taken to provide feedback on your experience at Chilliwack Golf Club back in June. I am sorry that I did not meet your expectations; however, I would like the opportunity to clarify a couple of key misunderstandings in your review:

1) Our Club's Policy is that any potential member wishing to experience CGC prior to committing to a membership is asked to pay the applicable green fee rate. When they are prepared to join, we are always more than happy and willing to apply any paid green fees as a credit towards the purchase of the applicable joining costs/dues.

2) Yes, our annual dues for 12 months of golf play are $2,000 +/- a year. However, we do not "discount" or prorate our dues on an equal month to month basis. Our prorating schedule is weighted heavier based on the key playing months (June through September). This is in place as it would not be reasonable to say that golfing in November or February is the same value as golfing in July or August based on the weather and playing conditions we experience here in the Lower Mainland.

3) Regarding the so-called scam. What Mr Fraser did not consider or understand that the promotion/special we were offering in June 2012 was $2,000 inclusive of Initiation Fees and Member Share. The initiation fee is $750 and the price of a share is $300. So in essence for $2,000 Mr Fraser would be receiving full play weekday golf dues, initiation fee paid and own a share of the Chilliwack Golf Club (a semi-private, member owned facility).

I do personally apologize to Mr Fraser for the misunderstanding, definitely was not my intention. However, as the manager of a club with 550 + members it is my responsibility and goal to provide fair pricing and good value for not only new and potential members but also for the members who have been at our club for many years.

Regards,

Bryan Ewart
General Manager
