West Orange Country Club May 2016 Update

Hello Everyone!

 

March and April were two great months for West Orange Country Club. The weather was beautiful and the golf course is in superb shape. We have continued the momentum into May, already adding 5 new members this month. We are officially up to 218 members and growing!

 

The summertime is typically slow season for golf courses, but we plan on continuing to upgrade our facilities and continuing to grow our membership. With the Social Membership offering pool use, tennis court use, and 4 rounds of golf; we encourage families to come check out what West Orange Country Club is all about! We will be re-doing the entire pool deck area with pavers within the next 30 days. The fence around the pool area has been repaired, cleaned and re-painted; also, new pool furniture has been purchased and just arrived today!

 

Furthermore, we have reached an agreement with Safety First Swim School-a locally based Survival Swim School that teaches infants and children how to survive in the event that they should have an accident in or around the pool. This has become a major business especially in Central Florida and will be a good resource for our members, but also a great source of revenue for the club. Drowning is the leading cause of death in children ages 1-4. Swim lessons reduce the risk of drowning by 88%. Safety First Swim School will also provide maintenance and stroke development lessons for our more advanced members. WOCC members receive $25 off of registration fees with the school, and also receive additional discounts for other programs offered. For more information please visit SafetyFirstSwim.com. (When registering, please mention you are a WOCC member).

 

We have also reached an agreement with Future Generation Golf Academy, owned and operated by our very own Head Golf Professional Brendon Chase. This Kids golf academy has some great after school programs, as well as private lessons available here at West Orange Country Club. This summer there will be summer camps for the kids in June, July and August. Please email Brendon at BrendonChase@pga.com for more information!

 

As part of our Summer Membership Push, we are offering all current members here at West Orange Country Club incentives to sign up friends, family or guests. For the remainder of the month of May and all of June, we are offering members $100 incentive if they sign up a Social Member and $250 if they sign up a full golf member here at West Orange Country Club (all incentives will be added as a credit to your member billing). We have extra membership packets available in the golf shop to help facilitate this. Please feel free to stop by and grab some packets and get your friends involved. There are great things happening up here at West Orange and we need your help to continue this momentum!

West Orange Country Club Spring 2016 Update

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Hello Everyone!

I just wanted to take a minute and send a letter to our membership and let you know what’s been going on here at West Orange Country Club. Our marketing plan has been on a roll and the membership numbers have continued to rise. When the club was purchased in July, we were down to 148 members. As of yesterday, we have hit the 200 mark for memberships. A large part of this successhas been our addition of a brand new website, an interactive and updated Facebook page, and also our commercial on the Brighthouse networks in our local community.

As I’ve been told numerous times by members, the course has never been in better shape. I’ve gotten numerous phone calls from Industry friends and fellow Golf Course Managers that they’ve heard nothing but great things about our facilities and most especially the golf course. In addition, we have also had the tennis courts resurfaced which was much needed. We have contracted Damon Ponzie as our New Instructor of Tennis here at West Orange, and he brings with him years of experience and a successful tennis school.

Brendon Chase, our Head Golf Professional, has also been contracted to have his own “Future Generation Golf: Academy for Kids” based here at West Orange Country Club. Brendon has been very successful in bringing younger families out to see our facilities and getting the younger generation involved in the game of golf. He is in the process of cleaning up the old pro shop and creating a classroom for these kids to use. Putting emphasis on the etiquette of the game as well as the golf swing, he teaches these kids at a young age about the great game of golf.

Chef Michelle continues to wow everyone with her culinary skills and abilities to create new menus each Wednesday and Friday night. The Chef’s table we hosted in February was a huge success and the Easter Brunch this Sunday had over 150 reservations. We thank everyone for your continued patronage and support, and promise to do more fun events each month for our members.

Lastly, I just want to thank all members for their patience and understanding as we’ve been getting this golf club back to where it needs to be. We have brought in many outside groups to help subsidize the club during this time, and hope that with continued increase in membership, we can start to phase out these large groups. Our goal in July was to remain a totally private golf club, and this continues to be our main goal here at West Orange. Again, thank you all for your continued support and understanding during this transitional time. Please continue to tell all your friends about our great Country Club in the Country, and the amazing staff we have here at West Orange Country Club.

Nick
