After playing in a member-guest at Oxbow (N.D.) CC, Aaron Greterman said he was informed that he was banned from the private club because of reports that he had used cocaine during the event. Greterman said he had only used an energy supplement and that the allegations led to damage of his reputation and real-estate business. His lawsuit, which names as defendants several Board members in addition to the club and the member who hosted him, seeks unspecified damages of more than $50,000.
The project, which includes nine new holes designed by Robert Trent Jones II, is part of a $65 million flood protection plan for the Oxbow and Bakke subdivisions. A new clubhouse will replace the current one, with an expanded kitchen and more useable event space.
In the club industry, success really does hinge on making sure that “people business” is a phrase where the two words do not become mutually exclusive.
The North Dakota club’s 24-year-old General Manager and 25-year-old Executive Chef are leading pursuit of a mission which holds that “the future of private clubs is in families, and having something for everybody.”
With work possibly beginning as early as next spring, the plan is to build eight new holes and a new clubhouse on farmland just outside of the current course, and also includes construction of the community’s ring dike. The entire project is expected to take up to three years to complete, and funding for the golf course portion of the project will come from the $32.5 million local share.
