Dear El Tigre Golf Course League Members,
A special fund has been established to provide much needed monetary support to El Tigre Golf Course staff members (golf course caddies, beverage golf cart ladies and front office pro shop staff). Several members have come forward recently to ask how they can help out and Jim Von Gremp sent out an email yesterday to raise awareness among the members on how we might be able to help out the golf staff, in this time of need. I met with Steve Johnson, (El Tigre Golf Course General Manager), earlier today to discuss how we can best structure, implement and communicate the newly established relief fund to all golf course league members. We are targeting to have the relief fund in place for the next 10 days, with a deadline of 12:00 PM on Monday, April 6th. At that time all collected funds will be made available to the impacted staff members. Please note that the golf course reopened earlier today (after being closed for the previous four days), and we are pleased to report that several members have already made either cash or credit card contributions.
Any and all contributions, of any amount, are greatly appreciated. If you are still in the Nuevo Vallarta area, you can stop by and drop off a cash contribution at the golf shop, to Steve’s attention. Credit card contributions can be made by contacting Steve Johnson, (his email is email@example.com) and letting him know what amount, and what currency (US dollars, Canadian dollars, Mexican pesos, etc.) you would like to contribute. Most members will have a credit card on file with the golf course that you most likely will be able to use. Steve will also establish an accounting process to record and track all contributions collected and periodic fund raising updates will be sent out to all members (via updated posts on this members website) during the relief fund collection period.
It was certainly great to have the golf course open again today and it was very reassuring to see all of the new safety measures in place for the benefit of both golfers and golf course staff members. The new measures are directed at implementing best practices social distancing guidelines coupled with an acute focus on following optimal health/sanitary hygienne protocols. The coronavirus pandemic is a very fluid situation here, in the US, in Canada and around the world. No one knows how long the golf course will remain open, how quickly the coronavirus will impact the local Nayarit area or how devastating the final financial and health impact will be. All contibutions are greatly appreciated!!!
Thank you for your consideration. I wish you and your family the best of health.
