Golf Club Will Open In 2010

To The Editor:

Great Cove Golf and Recreation Club will be open in 2010.

There have been rumors that we will not be opening this year in light of finances and changing of the pro shop/manager position. This letter is to let the public know – we will be open.

In fact, as I write this letter, we have advertised and received over 20 applications for the pro shop/manager position and interviews are scheduled for this week. We are excited about the number of applicants and the potential qualifications they may bring to Great Cove.

Back in late fall we did a letter campaign for an equipment fundraiser: mowing equipment, pool and other miscellaneous items. Last week we purchased three pieces of mowing equipment that was much needed.

We are planning to do some additional fundraisers that will aid us toward purchasing additional items as needed and improve the swimming pool.

Please keep in mind we are “open to the public” and are a “not for profit” organization. The golf course serves more than 15,000 rounds a year and the swimming pool services around 200 youths every year for swimming lessons.

Anyone wishing to contribute or interested in becoming a member may contact us at 366 Riggs Drive, McConnellsburg, PA 17233 or 717-485-5876.

Thank you for your support.

Robert E. Peck,
