CROSSVILLE — As of July 18, 2012, the FUNd Tournament has contributed a total of $14,000 in 2012 on projects that have been developed by the Golf and FUNd committees. These projects have upgraded the facilities while improving playing conditions. (See attached project list.)

A new website (laketansigolf.com) has been developed and is supported by Golf Now. The new website reaches numerous geographic areas and the support and updates are performed by Golf Now at no charge to us, other than a few rounds of golf.

Point of Sale/Tee Time (POS/TT) system has been up and running for approximately three months. The data Matt Phipps is capturing will provide management with a tool that will assist in making rate recommendations and will identify time frames that are slow providing opportuAs of July 18, 2012, the FUNd Tournament has contributed a total of $14,000 in 2012 on projects that have been developed by the Golf and FUNd committees.

Revenue is up $43,000 YTD through June over last year. (Matt Phipps)

Matt has started evaluating hole handicap ratings for the course using a process developed by the USGA. He will need the leagues to provide him with members’ scorecards. This will be a long process, but with the input from our members will ensure accurate information that will result in the appropriate handicap assignments.

Rocky Top 10 Theater has filmed and produced a commercial of Lake Tansi Golf Course. Matt did the voice over, and the commercial is shown prior to each headline movie. This is just another program Matt has put in place to give us more exposure, thus resulting in more play. More play, more revenue.
