Bemidji Town & Country Club Online Newsletter - 03/30/11

Soon the BT&CC will be open for play. The management team has an aggressive marketing plan for the 2011 season. With a discounted "new member" strategy and revised menu, the club is poised for an exciting season. It is a bit too early to know how the course came through the winter but Tom is cautiously optimistic.

Over the past few years the clubhouse has experienced reduced interest in hosting wedding receptions. As of this writing only 7 wedding receptions are booked for the entire 2011 season. The highest number of receptions on record is 23. There is speculation that competition is having an impact. Much effort has been put in to marketing the BT&CC as an events center, specifically for wedding receptions. Whether it is competition or economic choices, people are choosing not to use our club for their events. That being said the management team and board of directors have decided to more aggressively market the North Shore Grille for public dining. Jeremy has developed an exciting menu. Brent and his team have a solid marketing plan in place for enticing public dining. The BT&CC is a historic venue with views of Lake Bemidji that are second to none. Please encourage family and friends to make use of the BT&CC as well as the North Shore Grille.
