New cart path will be added from #1 green routing left of the restroom. #6 new cart path will be added where there currently isn't path. #9 path will be added by the green. #10 path will be added to go down the right side of the hole. #16 path will go around the men's tee and go beside the women's tee.

Holes will remain open during the work. _____________________________

Lifetime Memberships:Lifetime memberships are available to those resident and non-resident members that elect to pay for their dues in a lump sum.

There shall be no more than 50 lifetime members at any one time. There shall be no refund of any lifetime dues paid for any reason, including but not limited to: resignation, or death of member or if the member shall be terminated or suspended pursuant to these bylaws.
The Board may establish different dues payments for different age groups and set any conditions or limits on such lifetime memberships in the sole discretion of the Board of Directors, and such payment amounts and terms and conditions may vary over time. Lifetime members will be exempt from the regular periodic payment of dues paid by the other classes of members, but will still be required to pay any special assessments, capital/building fund fees, range or handicap fees, member charges or any user fees the club may establish.

Frequently asked questions:
What is the scope of the capital project?
The project entails a new clubhouse, which will have restaurant, bar, kitchen, golf shop, locker room for men and women, office space and storage. Wrap around porches will allow for ample outdoor space. Site will allow for a new parking lot and an extension to our current driveway to reach the new parking lot and clubhouse. The new building will be located in the clearing between the 9th green and the 18th green. The new parking lot will be located in front of the new clubhouse and extend down alongside #10 tees. Parking location allows easy access to the clubhouse for everyday and provides ample spaces for any additional events being held at the facility throughout the year.
Why is the club starting a capital campaign now?
Morehead City Country Club has long needed investment in its capital infrastructure having operated out of aging facilities for years. The original capital improvement plan was broken down into 3 phases. Phase 1 was to renovate the golf course. Renovations were needed to improve aging greens, add teeing options, along with improving bunker design. The course renovation and new course layout allowed space for a new pool and new clubhouse. Phase 2 added the pool and pool bar. Now that Phase 1 and 2 are complete, the club is ready to move to Phase 3 – The new clubhouse. The club’s current clubhouse does not meet the needs of the clubs diversified and growing membership.
How much are you trying to raise in this campaign?
Based on anticipated cost of construction and the current loan proposal, the club is looking to raise a minimum of 1 million dollars. Just like home buyers the club is required by the bank to have a down payment to secure the loan. Lifetime memberships are Phase 1 of the capital campaign and will assist in raising money for the down payment. Additionally, the club is looking into the possibility of naming rights for different aspects of the clubhouse along with potential hole naming rights.
Will there be an assessment or dues increase?
It has always been the policy of our Board of Directors to work to avoid dues increases and assessments. This policy is reflected in the fact there has not been a dues increase since 2006, despite an increase in inflation, a recession and most recently extensive losses from Hurricane Florence. Completion of Phase 1 and 2 brought over $3 million in improvements with no assessments or dues increase, which is unheard of in the club industry.
If you are concerned about an assessment or dues increase please bring your concerns to Nick Eatmon. He is glad to show how the club is working to avoid substantial dues increase and assessments. Nick can be reached by phone at 252.342.0951.
What is your timeline for completing the clubhouse?
The soonest the club can begin construction will depend on money raised and completion of construction drawings. A realistic goal is to break ground in 2020. The clubhouse may take up to 18 months to build. Take note, current construction cost due to Hurricane Florence have risen by more than 20%. Any plans to start construction before next year when costs are anticipated to normalize would have resulted in a cost exceeding budget.
