Summer is finally here and with it several opportunities to ensure that our club continues to thrive throughout the season.
 
Drive to 35
The Club is happy to report that the Drive to 35 is almost complete!  The race is on to sell the last four memberships as soon as possible.  If you know of anyone who may be interested don’t hesitate to contact me directly at 705-428-3673 ext. #3 or 705-443-9818 or if you prefer email shiggins@madriver.ca  At $15,000 the whole family is in the Club for 2019 at no additional fees or dues until 2020.  And members are rewarded for their referrals with a $1000 credit (divided by the number proposers) on account as well as a chance to win an additional prize from the countdown poster board of a pro shop credit, dinner for four, lessons and more! 
 
Associate and Intermediate Memberships
Want to get more enjoyment from your Mad River membership?  Share the experience with your loved ones.  Both associate and intermediate memberships are slightly reduced as of July 1st!  Call or email me for more details.
 
Introductory Membership
The Club is once again offering Introductory Memberships this season to complement our sales drive.  Our rate of conversion is exceptional with over 90% becoming full members before the season is through!   When speaking to friends and colleagues remember that the introductory membership is a great way to experience the Club without having to commit fully.  The fee for an introductory membership is pro-rated for the balance of the season for the first member and other family members can become introductory associate members simply by paying the applicable fee.  All Introductory Members will be made to feel welcome and invited to participate in all events and tournaments.
 
Proud to Promote 
This past Monday was our second Proud to Promote Day of the season with 41 guests enjoying our beautiful golf course and facilities.   Members should keep in mind that this is a perfect low-key opportunity to expose your club to friends and family that you hope to become future Mad River members.  The next Proud to Promote days are September 9th & October 7th. 
 
Member Guest Days
These event days are almost always fully subscribed with a waiting list.  Guest days are the perfect way to soft-sell the Club.  Both Ladies & Men’s Guest Days are coming up in July and are full as usual.  The Mixed Member Guest Day is on Sunday, September 8th and we are so fortunate that Sally & Michael McLachlan agreed to be the convener’s of this year’s event.  There are only 20 entries available so watch for details mid-July and send in your registration form promptly.
 
Any Day is a Prospective Member Day
Prospective Members are always welcome at Mad River.  Men’s and Ladies Days and the Friday morning group are always accommodating toward prospective members and often sealed the deal!  Just this past Friday a prospective member was invited to play by the Men’s Captain, Andrew Senior and group host Brian Usher-Jones.  The invitation and camaraderie of day was all it took for new member Stan Ross to know he made the right decision in becoming a Mad River Member.  Thank you to all!
