PSA update for September 2019-Golf Management Partner

The PSA Board met on Tuesday September 17th to hear more about the idea of engaging a golf management partner. Cohoat and O’Neal (C&O) were onsite to talk to the Board and answer questions. Prior to selecting C&O, a subset of the Executive Committee met with three companies in late August/early September.

The Committee talked to two larger national companies (Troon and Billy Casper Golf) and a locally based company. They have selected to engage with the locally owned and operated company Cohoat and O’Neal for several key reasons. One of the key differentiators between the three companies was the idea that the locally owned operation and had a more “hands on” approach. The fact that they are an Indiana based company was equally impressive not to mention their many years of golf operation management expertise.

Cohoat and O’Neal was established in 2011 based out of Carmel Indiana. They own or operate various golf courses throughout the state of Indiana. One of their signature golf courses is located in Carmel called Prairie View Golf Club where they host the IHSAA Girls and Boys State Championships through 2024. It was also the host site of the 2019 PGA Professionals Championship (Indiana PGA).

No firm decision has been made to move forward with Cohoat and O’Neal and no firm commitment or contract has been signed. Just like you, we need to learn and know more. They have been on site talking to management, employees, and your Executive Committee and assessing what’s working well and what they might bring to the table to help make this a premier destination and standout community. The PSA Board will be deciding if engaging with a third party expert is a better option and model for our community and the golf operation at The Golf Club@Eagle Pointe.

If you would like to learn more, please visit their website at https://www.cohoatandoneal.com/. In addition, Cohoat and O’Neal will be onsite to talk to the community on September 28th at 9:00 in the Eagle’s Nest.

The Executive Committee and your PSA Board will make every effort to communicate more details as they become available. Please feel free to reach out to any of them if you have questions.

Letter from PSA President

Letter to PSA Board from Betsy Larson PSA President

Since the July PSA Quarterly Board meeting, the Executive Committee has been working closely with the LLC Board and golf operation to address the financial, service, and overall quality issues. After much consideration, we think the best path forward for the community and the viability of owning and operating the golf operation would be to partner with a Golf Management company.

We have interviewed 3 companies and have selected Cohoat and O’Neil (pending PSA Board approval) which is a locally owned and operated company. We believe they can help us bring a higher level of professionalism and expertise to ensure our financial viability going forward.

We are calling a special PSA Board meeting on September 28th at 9:00am. At that meeting, the golf management company will present their proposal and answer your questions. We will be asking for your approval to partner with the new golf management company effective October 1, 2019. The employees of the golf operation will be communicated to at the same time we are sending this email.

The agenda for the September 28th meeting:

§ Cohoat & O’Neal Presentation § Approval of by-laws § PSA & The Golf Club at Eagle Pointe Financials § Vote to move forward with new golf management company § Other Business § Open Discussion § Adjourn

We very much appreciate all that you do as Board members of not only your own village but also the PSA Board. Ensuring that we continue to improve our community, provide a great experience for all using the facility and the continuing improvement of our home values depends on you participating and supporting in decisions to ensure our future financial viability.

Based on the importance of the meeting and the significant changes we are recommending, we ask that you make every effort to attend. In addition, we would like to invite the community to the Cohoat & O’Neal presentation. The meeting will be at the Eagle’s Nest at 9:00am. Please forward this to the members in your community. In addition, we will also be posting this email. Please feel free to reach out to me or any member of the Executive Committee.

WE HOA Board Meeting September 2017

I hope everyone had a great summer!

We are still working on multiple projects to improve our property.

We have three building roofs being removed and shingled. We are trying some gutter guards on these building to prevent the problems we experience every spring and fall with leaves clogging our downspouts.

Throughout our village you may see signs like the one pictured below. This is a new program intended to recognize homeowners who have self funded the landscaping in thier yards. All requested landscaping must first be submitted through our Landscaping Request area for approval. Seth Inman, our landscaping partner, works directly with homeowners to create an area that reflects the ideas of the homeowner while using plants or trees that are deer and locally friendly. Many of you have worked with Seth and experienced his talent in creating beautiful spaces. Should you wish to submit a request to work with Seth, simply make a request using our “Landscaping Request” area of the Homeowners landing page. The signs you see in some of our yards are intended to identify landscaping that has been paid for by the homeowner, not the HOA, and remain in the yards for approximately 30 days. Thanks to so many of you who have added so much beauty to this community.

As a reminder, all pets are to be on a leash when they are outside on the property which is an Indiana restraint statute. Please pick up your dog waste as well.

I stated at the annual meeting that we would be evaluating our HOA dues this year since our general expenses are starting to exceed our capital improvement expenses. As you may remember, we have not increased our dues in over 8 years. We are evaluating all options including changing our HOA insurance from single entity to bare walls, increasing HOA dues and cutting back on our capital projects. We will be giving our residents plenty of notice prior to making any changes. Finally, we have received several parking complaints throughout the year. Please be a good neighbor and line up your vehicle with the concrete parking stop. Every owner is responsible for their guests as well as their renters. If you have any issue with someone taking multiple parking spaces, please contact security to communicate the problem and your reporting will be kept anonymous. Security will speak with the vehicle owner and request the vehicle be moved to utilize only one space.

Thank you all for a great summer, and thank you for your continued support of this Board.

Sincerely,

Brian Earley
President

Insurance Update

Send Email to Multiple People

Subject Water’s Edge HOA Bare Walls Insurance

Message Dear Homeowners,

As communicated in past emails and at the December meeting, the HOA will be changing to bare walls insurance for the entire property on March 1st. The board has developed two documents to help you and your insurance agent determine what will be covered under the HOA insurance and what each homeowner will need to insure under their personal policy. We received direction from the homeowners during our meeting, from our Insurance consultant and the board. I want to thank everyone for the discussion and direction on our insurance. If you have any questions, please use the Ask the Board link on our website watersedgelakemonroe.com.

Sincerely,
Brian Earley- President
