From the President’s Desk

Dear Members,
Warm Greetings!

I am overwhelmed by the members’ feedback about our Club. The Club has started buzzing throughout the week in all centers and corners. It is heartening to know that the members are enjoying various facilities including the F & B and Entertainment programs supported by enhanced services. The ‘good old charm’ of watching movies at the Club is back. The Management is making utmost efforts to cater to the members’ expectations in all ways. We will be bringing in high-quality programs in the coming months as well. The administration and staff has the lion’s share in serving the members. I am of the firm belief that discipline and decorum play a vital role in maintaining high standards in an organization and we are successful in achieving the same through your co-operation.

The assimilation of the newly-added members has resulted into new friendships, good fellowship and strong bonding which in turn is bringing in positive energy and vibrancy in the Club.

At the Golf Course, the up-gradation work has commenced after the appointment of an Architect/Designer/Consultant, Mr. Phil Ryan who had originally designed our course about 20 years ago. Without changing much of the routing and yardage, the fairways and greens will be re-surfaced and re-grassed with a good drainage system. The Tees and bunkers will also be redesigned. The water filtration plant along with re-laying of the riverside pipeline work and computerized irrigation system will help make our course the most sought after. An encouraging response to the ‘Open House’ led to valuable, valid and fruitful suggestions from golfers.

At the main Clubhouse, our favorite permit room is shedding its old look. A new swanky bar will be ready to welcome you while you are reading this edition of Insight. Designing of a new Clubhouse of approx. 11,500 sq. ft. is underway which will host all the needs and comforts of the members.

The Gents’ changing room at the swimming pool complex will go under renovation from the second week of August. Our endeavour is to give our members a new exciting experience.

A new plan for the overall infrastructural development of the Club is on the anvil. The salient features are – increasing parking space, new plush residential rooms, state-of-the-art gym/spa, covered auditorium/cinema hall, additional swimming pool and enhanced sports facilities, etc.

As per the new Companies Act, it is mandatory for the Club to provide e-voting facility to the members. The process has already been initiated. I request the members to update their information along with the correct email id at the earliest.

We can expect our Club to be the country’s best in a few years to come.

Till then, Happy Clubbing!!

With regards,
Rajiv Sangtani
