McLeod Country Golf Club performs financial miracle to stay afloat

POSTED ON March 24, 2019 @ 1:59 pm

 

For the second time in its 50-year career, the McLeod Country Golf Club has performed a financial miracle with a do-or-die fund-raising campaign that will keep the club afloat.

The Club president Meryl McKenzie mad the announcement earlier this week to her advisory and committee that, in just a few weeks, the cub had raised $522,477 after being told they were close to insolvency.

Members were told in February that if $480,000 was not raised by this week, the board would be closing the doors on the institution.

“This wasn’t a challenge to members to support the club, it was a pleas to ensure its future sustainability” Ms MeKenzie said.

“We weren’t just going to as for donations to survive from month-to-month.”

Ms McKenzie said the board and management saluted their members and supporters.

There will be a thank you dinner at the club on April 1.
