Dear Members,

Your Board of Governors and the Finance Committee have been reviewing various policies and processes in order to identify areas in which we can improve efficiency, and better govern our club. One of these areas pertains to our delinquent accounts policy.

The vast majority of our members pay their monthly invoice on time every month. We are grateful and fortunate to have these members, who “think like owners” and are diligent in their payments. Unfortunately, there are always a few members who do not pay on time, some going 90+ days past due. Currently, we assess a small “finance charge” on past due accounts, but this is a minimal amount and creates a lot of extra work for our accounting staff. The delinquent accounts total can be substantial at certain times. Obviously, the club could use those funds for operational needs instead of borrowing from our line of credit during slow periods.

As SLCC embarks on a new season, a revised delinquent account policy has been approved by the Board of Governors and will begin as of May 1st as outlined below. Should you have any questions about the revised policy, please do not hesitate to contact the general manager, Kevin Green or the club’s controller, Drew Nooney.

Payments are late if the business office has not received account payment on or before the 25th of each month. Should you release payment from your banking institution, SLCC web portal or send a check in the mail, please consider allowing 7-10 days prior to the 25th of the month (does not include weekends and holidays) in order to be received on time.
 
SLCC DELINQUENT ACCOUNT POLICY AS OF MAY 1, 2024
Past Due (Delinquent) – what does it mean to be considered “past due?”
EXAMPLE:
  • January 1 – 31 | charges are accumulated over the month
  • February 1 | on the morning of February 1, all of January charges are closed out; statements are printed and mailed out and notice emailed that statements are now ready. Members have until February 25th to pay statement balance from January.
  • March 1 | on the morning of March 1, all of February charges and payments are closed out, statements are printed and mailed out and notice emailed that statements are now ready. If the January statement balance payment was not received in the business office on/before February 25th – January charges are now “past due.”
First Billing Cycle Past Due – a delinquent notice will be emailed
  • The account balance is now considered “past due” and a $50 late fee is added to balance.
Second Billing Cycle Past Due – a second delinquent notice will be emailed
  • A $100 late fee is added to balance.
Third Billing Cycle Past Due – a third delinquent notice will be emailed and club privileges are immediately suspended until full statement balance payment is received
  • A $200 late fee is added to balance.
  • Each additional month thereafter that the account remains past due, a $200 late fee will be added until the entire accrued statement balance is paid in full.
  • Member will be required to sign an authorization form and set up an auto transfer payment via credit card or financial institution paying each subsequent monthly account balance in full for the remaining time during which the Member continues to be a member of the Club.

Should The Account Balance Ever Become Past Due Again
Going forward, should the member account ever reach suspended status again (3 successive billing cycles past due), immediate termination of the membership will occur, and the Member shall be expelled absent alternative arrangements previously made due to extenuating circumstances.
Responsibility for full payment of the account balance will still be the responsibility of the expelled member. Provided the account balance has been paid in full, the expelled Member may appeal to the Board of Governors for reinstatement consideration in accordance with the Bylaws.

Important Reminder: Dress Code and Cell Phone Policy

Dear Spring Lake Country Club Members,

As we enjoy the upcoming summer season at our esteemed club, it is essential to revisit our Dress Code and Cell Phone Policy to ensure a pleasant and respectful environment for all members and guests.

Our Dress Code reflects our commitment to tradition, modesty, and the comfort of fellow members. Whether in the Clubhouse, on the golf course, or attending private parties and business meetings, we ask that all attire be tasteful and tailored. Gentlemen are encouraged to wear tailored slacks, Bermuda shorts, and collared shirts, while ladies are welcome in classic and modest outfits. Children are also expected to follow these guidelines, ensuring a cohesive and respectful atmosphere for all.

On the golf course and practice facilities, appropriate golf attire is mandatory. This includes Bermuda shorts for men and women with a minimum 15-inch outseam, collared shirts for men, and neatly-tailored outfits for women. Please refrain from wearing items such as jeans or fitness center attire to maintain the decorum of our golfing experience.

Additionally, we kindly request that all hats and caps be worn with the bill forward, and that golf shoes with metal spikes are not permitted to preserve the integrity of our course.

Regarding cell phone usage, we understand their necessity in modern life but ask for discretion and etiquette. Cell phones should be set to vibrate mode only, and if a call must be taken, please excuse yourself from dining areas and the Golf Shop. Speakerphone mode is prohibited to maintain a peaceful environment for all members and guests.

Please take a moment to review these policies with your guests and children to ensure everyone's compliance. As a community, it is our collective responsibility to uphold these standards and respect the traditions of Spring Lake Country Club.

Attached for your reference is a copy of our complete Dress Code and Cell Phone Policy HERE. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to club management.

Thank you for your attention to this matter and your commitment to preserving the excellence of Spring Lake Country Club.


Warm Regards,
Kevin Green, CCM
General Manager

From Drew Paxton
May 20, 2024


It’s hard to believe Memorial Day is this coming weekend. The crew has done a fantastic job cleaning up the bunkers and the greens have healed up nicely. The golf course is in great shape heading in to the holiday weekend. We were actually dry enough for the first time to need to break out the hoses to do some hand watering this past weekend.

The contractor helping us with the pond bank work on 6 and 12 will be here starting Monday afternoon. We will start on hole 12 first, then finish on hole 6. While they are working, we will move the tees forward in the fairway to avoid any potential of their crew getting hit by a ball. We will also be getting the cart path on hole 1 redone in the next week or two.

The other project getting started this week is the new landscape bed to the South of the main entrance. We will shape it, and start getting the plant material installed to really give the entrance a fresh look.
 
As always please replace your divots and fix your ball marks.
 

Drew Paxton
Golf Course Superintendent
