Once again this holiday season, the PCA Office and Fitness Center are designated donation sites for the Marine Corps Reserve Toys-for-Tots program. Please count your blessings and consider donating a new toy. For children in need, a brand new toy can deliver a message of hope that will assist them in becoming responsible and productive adults. The mission of the US Marine Corps Reserve Toys-for-Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during November and December each year and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to needy children in the community in which the campaign is conducted. Guidelines for toy donations are simple: donated toys should be new and unwrapped, and appropriate for children 0-12 years. Though all articles are thoroughly screened for safety before delivery to children, please keep safety in mind when you make your selections. The best donations are sporting goods, toy cars/planes/boats, dolls (Barbie, GI Joe etc.), board games, books, bicycles, scooters, puzzles, models , hand held video games and small electronics. Thank you for your consideration! Please note that the final day for toy collection will be Friday, December 8.
The Board of Directors has recently been addressing issues with Traditional Golf Management (TGM), the operator of our golf course, not performing in accordance with their contract with the PCA. Specifically they were not meeting their financial obligations. After significant investigation analysis and negotiations with the CEO of TGM, the Board determined that it was in the best interest of the PCA to terminate the management agreement and find an agent for our golf course in order to protect our financial interests and to ensure the standards of performance and service were maintained. Thus, on September 1st, 2017, management of the golf course was transitioned from TGM to Commonwealth Golf Assets Management (CGAM). Mike Bennett, the CEO of CGAM and former TGM executive responsible for overseeing Penderbrook Golf Course was introduced to the community at the September BOD meeting. Transition has gone smoothly with no interruption of service. Unlike past golf course contracts where the PCA leased use of the golf course to a golf course company, the current arrangement has CGAM operating the course as an agent on behalf of the PCA. This means that PCA has a more direct role in the operation of the course. We are in the process of recapitalizing the major equipment of the course like mowers and golf carts and finalizing the capital expenditure plan to ensure that the course is in great shape and ready for the 2018 season.
Come out and enjoy some of the nice warm weather by golfing PCA!
