Survey Results are Back!
We had 44 members respond to the survey - big thanks to all!!  Social events, other than outdoor golf, are still on hiatus due to Covid 19, but your answers will be used to plan future events.

Key takeaways:

>>  People are missing the social aspect of our club this year showed up in several questions. Not a surprise.

>>  Social events that involve golf, like Top Golf, were the most popular choices. A surprise was 55% of responses indicated an interest in an out of town golf event within 200 miles of the Twin Cities.

>>  Local competitive golf events, like the MN Metro Open, were the most popular golf options.

>>  Comments included some good ideas for non-golf social events, further input on local competitions and some ideas for getting and keeping members.
