Golf club son parc

Does anyone know if what I am hearing is true the golf club is not renewing memberships and the staff are uncertain of there futures

Surely they cannot be closing the golf course this would effect son parc and the island big time

Any comments ?....

Raff might be one to find this out Smogmeister but I know that she is away from the island on a family holiday at the moment.

Have you tried posting on www.menorca-net.co.uk/menorcatalk/index.php - I just looked and there has been nothing posted on the Son Parc page since August 2012 but the locals who post on that website regularly may know more ( especially if they use the golf course).

Will see what he reports but if they are not renewing golf memberships something is happening big time as the staff have not been told

Have you posted a question about it as I don't see anything on the Son Parc area or general chat pages.

I shall send Raff an email to alert her to this thread and she may be able to ask around when she gets back to the island

there has been lots of stuff in island papers over last year about attempts to build other golf courses on the island so 'demand' is there.

Why not send an email to the golf clu info@sonparc. Com

I find the closure highly unlikely and the December Roqueta had its usual report.

Far more likely is the tardy forward planning so typical in Menorca.

Phew, I bet the staff at the club are pleased they have kept their jobs - its bad enough that work on the island tends to be so seasonal, but now with spain in recession it would be a real problem.

I saw a news program today about how the recession is hitting Spain so badly that young professionals are moving in their droves to Germany to find work even though it means in some cases often having to learn german from scratch and take very menial jobs. There were trained nurses, IT specialists and all sorts of highly qualified graduates all of whom were saying that they had no choice but to leave their families and seek work abroad to make ends meet.
