Operations report ~ Nick Eatmon Appreciate all of your efforts in keeping the club safe in this trying time.
Below are frequently asked questions on club operations.
However, I have to say the #1 question I receive is how is the family doing.
We are all doing great! Mckenzie is growing up very fast and Will is all over the place!
Moving forward let's all do our part in continuing to make sure everyone around us is safe.
Hopefully by doing so we can get back to as close to normal as possible in the near future.
If you any of you have questions or comments concerning the club
please do not hesitate to give me a call at 252.342.0951
April Financial Report
The good news: Member support has been tremendous. Membership totals increased by 2 in April. Daily revenue for April was virtually identical to last April . Revenue showed an increase from last year of approximately $30,000 when including new lifetime memberships. Daily food sales for April were the 7th highest monthly total in the history of MCCC. Cart fees in April were the highest for April since point of sale system was put into place. Merchandise sales increased by nearly $6,000 over last April. Addition of 2 lifetime memberships totaling $30,000
The bad news: Losses in revenues included $7,135 in guest green fees. $5,000 in membership initiation fees. Loss of $14,135 in catering and alcohol sales.
Last year daily income in May was approximately $55,000 higher than in April.
If the club operates through May in the same fashion as April the club will lose significant income.
This is due to lack of caterings, member parties, alcohol sales, tournaments and pool income.
In 2019 from April through September the club gained a net 50 members. The club is not expecting to gain the same amount of members through September.
This will negatively impact revenues in the future.
Club has received $208,000 through the payroll protection program.
With your continued support the hope is this money will more than cover potential short term and long term losses.
