DCC Membership COVID-19 NEWS UPDATE #1
From Derryfield Country Club
I write this letter after a long day on the phone trying to find out answers for the course and how we can move forward in the coming weeks. As per the Governor’s order #17 concerning COVID-19 we will not be opening Derryfield CC at this time. All golf activities will have to wait. It was our hope to be opening this Tuesday, but unfortunately, that will not happen. We will continue to maintain the course so that when we do open it will be in the best condition possible. Jeff and his crew will be working hard until we are able to enjoy it.
I want to make sure everyone is receiving the most accurate information about the golf industry in New Hampshire. At this time, the Governor has put a stop to nonessential businesses until May 4th which does include golf courses. Please be aware, the NH Golf Association, NEPGA, and the NH Board of the NEPGA are working together on behalf of our industry to open as soon as possible.
We won’t take any signups for events or tournaments until we resume business. The ladies league and its signups will begin in May with a start time schedule for June. More information on all our events will be coming in the near future. As of April 1st, anyone who hasn’t paid GHIN dues or indicated to me that you will be coming back, you will be inactivated in the system. I will put you back in as soon as we open and begin taking dues again. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions about this.
No additional memberships will be sold at this time. Any broad-based decision about memberships already purchased will be made after opening day is determined. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we adjust to this rapidly-changing situation.
I realize this will be a long month for everyone. Please understand we are all in this together and will come back to Derryfield CC stronger than ever. The golf course will be in great shape and the membership will still be the best in the state!
Jen and I want to thank you for all the support and hope you all are staying safe and healthy.
