Notice of Extraordinary General Meeting 7pm 24 September 2014

Message from the President

2 September 2014

 

 

This email has been sent to you as you are a Member of Capital Golf Club Inc ("the Club").

 

Many of you will have received a renewal notice from Capital Public Golf Course ("the Course") recently and those who haven't will no doubt receive them shortly.

 

As you will aware on the 26th August 2014, the Club held its 2014 AGM.

 

The Members in attendance at the AGM were presented with Club reports by the 2013/14 Golf Management Committee ("the Committee"), highlighting a range of issues which have made the operation of the Club on behalf of its Members virtually impossible. 

 

In addition to refusing to meet with the Committee or respond to correspondence to discuss a range of matters, the Course Operators continue to withhold payment of affiliation fees paid by the Club Members to the Course Operators.  Despite various assurances to the contrary, it is evident that the Course Operators do not wish to work with an independent golf club representing Member's interests.

 

As you would be aware, affiliation fees (which cover a range of matters related to playing golf, including player insurance) are paid by each Member's home affiliated golf club (currently the Club ) to Golf Australia, NSW Golf and the two district golf associations. These affiliation fees are paid by each of you as part of your Course Membership.  Prior to the 2013/14 financial year, the Course Operators reimbursed the Club for the affiliation fees as well as providing a small level of additional financial support (in the form of a "grant").This situation was essentially the same as existed when Vikings Rugby Club was the course operator.  As was the case in previous years, the Club has paid the applicable affiliation fees during 2013/4 on Members' behalf in good faith on the basis that the same level of financial support would be provided by the Course Operators during 2013/14 (as was verbally committed to at the 2013 Club AGM by Peter Kohlsdorf).

 

Unfortunately as at the date of this email (despite assurances as recently as last Tuesday night's AGM by Peter that the fees would be reimbursed) the Club has not received this payment.  The outstanding amount totals $15,000.08.

 

The Committee will continue to seek to have these fees reimbursed by the Course Operator to the Club.

 

I advise that at Tuesday's AGM there were insufficient nominations to form a Committee for the 2014/15 year- with the majority of the 2013/14 Committee not recontesting the ballot due to their frustration with the Course Operators. 

  

A motion was subsequently moved and passed that the 2013/14 Committee continue to hold office until an Extraordinary General Meeting  (7pm 24 September 2014 at Capital Golf Club) in accordance with the Club's Constitution is called and which will seek approval of the Members to wind-up the Club.

 

I attach a notice for the meeting in accordance with the Club's Constitution including the proposed motion to wind-up   the Club and to transfer any surplus property.  Such surplus to be distributed in accordance with the Constitution and the relevant legislation. 

 

Whilst we are not aware of the details, we have also been informed that the Course Operators are seeking to establish their own Golf Club.

 

As each member considers renewing their membership of the Course, the Club's Committee wished to ensure that the  Members who did not attend the AGM on the 26th August were made aware of the outcomes of that meeting.

 

A member of the Golf Management Committee can provide additional information if desired.

 

Regards

 

Alan
