    For many clubs across the country, diving board, pool houses, first tees and more will be lined with club kids. Each anxiously awaiting their first cannon ball, candy bar or tee shot of the summer.

    Are you headed to the CMAA Conference and Business Expo this year? VGM Club is! Thanks to members and non-members alike, the positive response VGM Club’s booth received last year blew us away. Our booth was a place to relax, grab something to drink, and hang out in our backyard.

That means winter has settled in, and while the season normally batters northern tier states with frigid temperatures and snow, southern states are not always immune from winter’s wrath. In other words, winter weather can cause headaches for club owners and managers no matter where they’re located as they try to keep their facilities, members, guests, and employees as safe as possible. Cold temperatures and snow are of particular concern during winter
