This season has been a Roller Coaster year. The weather did not cooperate in the springtime but the summer was sunny, hot and humid. This year reminded me of the summers that we had in the late 80's. Back then the course would totally burn out and we actually used an old fire truck to get water from the lake and pump on the greens. A lot has changed in the last 20+ years at Burden Lake Country Club.

In comparison to last year we managed to have a couple more tournaments. This added income is a necessity due to the fact the economy has affected our daily greens fees for the past couple of years. The Restaurant has continued to grow and we have made some improvements that have allowed us to serve more customers while keeping the quality at a high level and the prices still very reasonable.

The Membership is as strong as ever before. At this time, we have a majority of individual Members but the husband/ wife membership has been growing at a steady pace. The Member Leagues and Tournaments have been growing and I believe the tournaments have become a main focus to a lot of you. As a semi-private golf club we are dependant on outside play but we control the times that are available and Members get up to 7 days in advance to sign up. With the economy being so fragile we expect to get even more new members that see the value in a BLCC Membership.

As far as the future of the golf course, we are planning to restructure our mortgage by the spring of 2012. We will not be starting any projects until this is complete. We have a good relationship with First Niagara Bank and we have other local banks that are interested. We plan to include the cost of paving the rest of the golf cart paths as well as expanding our kitchen. The Town of Nassau has been working with a private group seeking to build up to 48 Town Houses near the maintenance area. This will not disrupt the golf course, but we will plan to build a new maintenance facility plus the development of #9 as a par 4 (finishing near the driving range tee). We plan to have an agreement signed by this fall. The Town Houses will be offered to the membership first before they go public. More details will be released as soon as we have the information. We look forward to the future and plan to keep moving in the right direction. Thanks for all your support and feel free to contact me with any questions you might have.
