The Founders Club is on the marshes and has the most beautiful setting in all of St. James and it is wasted by keeping it closed. Yes, one can get a simple, mediocre lunch, but Founders used to be a place where all the neighbors could meet in the evenings at THEIR neighborhood club and relax and get to know fellow residents of the Founders neighborhoods. Management has been literally begged for even one weekend night per week and gives every excuse imaginable. We have requested Deli Night, Pizza Night, Tapas Night and they answered with formal, stodgy buffets that nobody wants and then when response was poor, they lock the doors tight at night, saying we can go to Players or Reserve which are not our neighborhood clubs or (shudder) Tommy's which has tables you stick to and is full of flies. They say if they re-open Founders even for just Friday or Saturday nights, that will be 60 people who won't go to the other venues. Not true. It would be 60 people who are now staying at home. Listen to your members, Troon Management. One regular night each week is all anyone is asking for and you will see added revenue - not fewer people at the other locales.
