As has been the case during the past few years, grass greens and a watering system were again discussed at the annual meeting of Virden Well View Golf Club in the Legion Ladies’s Club Room on April 22.

About 30 people were in attendance, a substantial increase in attendance compared with previous years. Those present felt that the project of grass greens had been put off too long and it was time that improvements were made.

Financing of the project was a major area of concern. The executive was requested by the membership to contact the Provincial Government to determine if grants or loans are available to assist with this project.

It was also felt that municipalities and service clubs should be contacted in order to find out if assistance towards the project will be available from these sources.

The meeting felt that the balance of the funds needed could be raised through promissory notes backed by members.

A motion was passed authorizing the executive to proceed with a detailed plan of the course and determine the costs of installing grass greens and a watering system. This information is to be compiled as soon as possible, so that a general meeting of the members can be called.

The report of the nominating committee, presented by C.W. Buckingham, was adopted by those present. Elected were: President, Bruce Taylor, past president, Burns Chisholm; vice-president, Wayne Andon; secretary-treasurer, Don Reid; executive members, Max Parker, Rene McNeill, Blaine Marscella, Bill Smith and Allan Taylor. The Ladies’ Golf Club executive is to appoint two representatives to serve on the Well View Golf Club executive.

The financial statement was presented by Don Reid.
