Re: “Men-Only Area Sparks Concern at Willow Oaks Country Club

This is someone trying to create a political controversy to further their agenda, that agenda being the forced assessment of members to fund a 2.7 M renovation at a time when club finances, specifically high debt, are less than healthy. Certainly there seem to be a few who would use the renovation as a excuse to gain control of the desirable "men's grill" space, but the focus of the presentation to the members has been on the improved dining and social amenities. It is unfortunate the media allows itself to be used as a pawn to help supporters of the assessment and renovation achieve their goals in this false flag operation. There are several simple solutions to the issue of the "men's grill" that have been discussed, making it an adult sports grill is one, but the board wants the renovation, and will not discuss further changes to the plan. Many members consider the idea of separate social spaces for both men and women wasted spaces, but the new plan includes it, so the board is pushing the idea of a new men's lounge card room, not the membership. In truth, the current "men's grill" space is used by all members at various times throughout the year, and I have never witnessed female members being asked to leave, discouraged from entering, or being treated in less than a courteous manner. I believe I can speak for the membership when I say we would not tolerate that type of behavior from anyone.
