AMALGAMATION PROGRESS REPORT
Amalgamation progress report

We are now into the last month of Broughty Golf Club and this is likely to be my last update for members prior to our amalgamation with Grange Golf Club on New Year’s Day. Much has happened during November, which I would summarise as follows:-

• The official amalgamation agreement was signed by officials of both clubs on 30 November with a press release issued after the signing.

• The planning application for the new trolley shed has been lodged with Angus Council and neighbours have been notified. A warrant application and tender for the proposed works are being worked on.

• Discussions on terms for the proposed disposal of the Broughty building to the Links continue. Understandably this has created great interest amongst members and both the Grange board and Broughty committee have agreed that any proposal which may result from these discussions or any alternative proposal which may emerge will be discussed with members before any commitment is made. The likelihood is that an EGM (extraordinary general meeting) of the members of Grange and Broughty Golf Club will be called early in the New Year to receive and vote on any proposal the new joint board may recommend to members.

• Options for the new club crest/badge are on display for members to record their preference. Once a decision is made arrangements for replacement of club signage merchandise will be implemented.

• The 2019 golfing calendar will be issued later this month.

• Arrangements are in hand for using or disposing of Broughty club furnishings and equipment.

• Consideration of how the heritage of both clubs will be recognised in the clubhouse is also ongoing.

• The early bird discount for full members has been well received with many members already “signed up” for next year. I would remind you that the cut off for this is 31 December – please don’t leave it to the last minute if you intend to take advantage of this offer.

Finally, I would like to thank all members for their continued interest and support for the amalgamation. A lot of work has still to be done as we prepare for the next chapter in our club’s history. The Committee and staff will aim to do our best through the transition phase as we integrate both memberships and move towards an exciting future as the Grange and Broughty golf club. 

Your club captain.
