Patrick Wynn, General Manager, Harrison Meadows Country Club (HMCC) and Ryan Phelps, Vice President Indigo Sports, opened the Thursday, August 18th Town/Village Board Work Session with an HMCC update.
“Golf Rounds are picking up Friday-Sunday; Monday-Thursday is still quite slow,” Wynn began. “There are currently 425 Passholders (Main), 624 golfers including add-ons and 811 eligible for pool and tennis use. Course irrigation system is insufficient in drought conditions; however, we are continuing to improve agronomic practices after takeover. We are working on discounted twilight rates for Passholder Guests after 1:00 p.m. New carts are scheduled for delivery in 2023.
“There is continued food and beverage service from the pool; Cabana Grille interior will hopefully be completed by September. All equipment for banqueting and main kitchen is on order and an Executive Chef is coming within the next month.
“Golf Simulators in 19th hole are being reviewed, as well requests for Pickleball Courts possibly using the old play area. We have hosted multiple private parties and golf outings; bookings have been solid for 2023. Ladies and junior programs have been going well; a 2023 Kids Summer Camp is planned,” Wynn concluded.
Then Mayor/Supervisor Richard Dionisio opened the regular Town Board meeting, calling for a Moment of Silence to honor all veterans, introducing Korean War veteran and retired Yonkers Police Officer Rayot Difate, 81 who received a Presidential Medal of Achievement for his commitment in martial arts volunteerism. Difate holds a Black Belt in style of Kyokushin Karate Do.
New Veterans Affairs Officer Joe Mazzulo demonstrated his Hometown Heroes Banners, inscribed with the name of a veteran, slated to be purchased by residents to hang in town from May to November 2023 and each year thereafter. Cost is $200 per banner (onetime), plus a $25 yearly maintenance fee.
