CLUBHOUSE NOT SECURED…AGAIN
Once again the Clubhouse door was found ajar, unlocked and the office door open at 5.15 pm this Thursday evening.
All Members are reminded that it is everyone’s responsibility to ensure that if you are last to leave the Club that the premises are secure regardless if there are Greenskeepers or other Westshore personnel around, or if you think someone else will be there shortly.
If in doubt lock it up anyway.
This is the third time this year already and we are not even at the end of May.
Please be diligent and aware.
