Information for Special Membership Meeting: March 24, 2016
Why is it important to buy the golf course for the community?
Because it is a beloved, historical part of our community which has been of personal value as a golf course, social setting and open space to Neskowin residents and visitors for 83 years. The Neskowin Beach Golf Course (“The Jewel”) was designed and completed in 1932 by Ercel Kay, who originally started Salem Golf Club in Salem in 1928. Our course is among the oldest in Oregon and worth preservation. Its continued operation will maintain stable residential and commercial property values, as well as unmatched scenic beauty, enhanced by the changing seasons.
With community ownership, the golf course can creatively expand the use of its facilities, offering a variety of activities throughout the year, as well as bringing back a charming snack bar. Most importantly, this unique historical heart of the community would be preserved for future Neskowin generations.
On April 28, 2015 we mailed 1400 parcels to all property owners in the Neskowin community. All of the documents that were sent in that package are available for download on the right side of this page. If you would like more information, please feel free to email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 503-595-6261.
Who is leading the effort?
When the owner made his announcement late last summer, a group of Neskowin property owners met to discuss the potential loss to the community. A committee was formed with the intent to save the course. The group of volunteers has put countless hours into study, meetings, discussion, planning and acquiring professional advice on how a community option can work. The volunteers are:
As well as many other community Members who have offered their ideas and time.
