Relief Fund Update – Thank You From The Golf Staff

Dear Members,

Your generous contributions were recently shared with members of the El Tigre Golf Course staff. Ever staff member that received a payment was very touched and deeply appreciate of all of your support. Steve Johnson and all of his staff were tremendously appreciative of the outpouring of support that they received from League members in this time of need. I have attached an email from Jose Torres, who wrote an email on behalf of his colleagues thanking all of the members.

El Tigre Golf Course Staff – Relief Fund Update

I am very pleased to report that El Tigre Golf Course League members have provided tremendous financial support to the Relief Fund that was established in late March. The fundraising campaign ended earlier this week and the total amount on contributions received to date is $118,400 pesos. Steve Johnson and his staff will make the collected funds available to the impacted staff members in the very near future. The collected funds will be made available to the caddies, the beverage cart ladies, golf shop staff members and a few additional operational employees. Since the golf course is now closed for the month of April (and possibly longer), and all impacted staff members are unable to work, your contributions will provide much needed support to our dear golf course friends during this time of need. Steve and his staff are tremendously appreciative of all of your kindness and generocity.

Paradise Village Group also recently communicated that they would not be collecting any monthly Social and/or Golf membership dues, during the period that the impacted facilities are closed. For those members that have prepaid their annual dues in advance, the next annual statement will reflect a credit that will cover the time that the facility was closed to the public. For those members paying their membership dues on a monthly basis they will either, 1) get a credit for any monies already paid (when the facility was closed), 2) not receive a future bill if the facility was closed for the duration of that billing period, or 3) a combination of the above, if appropriate. Several members have already ask Steve if they could possibly donate any of their future credits to the current Relief Fund campaign. While Steve is extremely appreciative of this generous offering, it would be logistically and administratively very difficult to implement this initiative with the current accounting systems at hand. As such, it will not be feasible to implement this program at this time.

Steve and I want to thank everyone for their amazing support during this difficult period. We are all looking forward to the Fall when we will all be back together again and hopefully enjoying our beautiful golf course and being together again. In the meantime, we thank you very much for your generocity and for your caring. Most importantly, we wish all of of you and your families the best of health.

Markus & Steve

El Tigre Golf Course Staff – Relief Fund Update

Effective April 1st, the El Tigre golf course is once again closed as a result of new government issued guidelines. The course is expected to be closed at least through the end of the month of April. The course had reopened for the last 5 days of March, and during that time it was gratifying to see that all golfers were observing the new social distancing measures that had been put in place.

There has been an overwhelming response from the El Tigre golf league members in support of the Relief fund program that was recently established. After five days, Steve Johnson has received over $70,000 pesos in total contributions from the membership community. This is absolutely amazing and speaks volumes concerning the collective character and generosity of our members during this time of need. The deadline for the current relief campaign is 12:00 noon on April 6th (4 days from now). At that time Steve Johnson will make the collected funds available to the impacted staff members. Any and all collected funds will be made available to the caddies, the beverage cart ladies and to the golf shop staff members. There is still time to make a contribution if you would like to do so.

As stated in the last post, 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 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 has established an accounting process to record and track all contributions collected and we will continue to send out periodic fund raising updates during the next 4 days (via updated posts on the members website).

For those members that have already contributed we thank you very much for your generosity and caring. Best wishes to all members and their families for continued good health.
