Dear Members and Guests,
I've said it before and think it every day: I/we sure are fortunate. To have a great family, live in a great country (and state), enjoy wonderful friends and good health, and work with really caring Employee Partners for a company that believes in community and in an industry all about fun! Writing it down makes me even more grateful.
I'm also lucky to have checked off a few "bucket list" items during the last couple of years. In golf, I enjoyed playing at Pine Valley (my favorite), Augusta National, Bandon Dunes, Pebble Beach, Seminole, and St. Andrews. My tennis treat - and a real "don't-miss" recommendation - was to visit Wimbledon and walk out on center court.
Closer to home, it's always a pleasure to visit our ClubCorp clubs, especially those having undergone recent renovations. And since our last issue of Private Clubs, we have added a new member to the ClubCorp family: Cherry Valley Country Club in beautiful Skillman, N.J.
Finally, as many of you know, our parent company, KSL Capital Partners, has sold five resorts to Dallas-based Omni Hotels & Resorts. Fortunately, Omni has agreed to continue extending special member rates to you - members of ClubCorp clubs - and we look forward to expanding the relationship with Omni for your benefit.
With a fond farewell,
President and CEO
