A meeting of Vermilion Fairways Members was held to discuss and vote on a proposal by the Board of Directors. The Proposal:
"The Vermilion Fairways, Inc. Membership agrees to transfer title, with a reversionary interest in the event of the non-viability of the corporation, to Beatty Township in return for subsidies to be negotiated by the Vermilion Fairways, Inc. Board of Directors annually."
This proposal is step one of a multi step process that is being discussed with representatives of Beatty Township. If approved, the proposal will be presented to the Beatty Township Board and then hopefully be voted on by the residents of Beatty Township.
The proposal was explained at the meeting by Kent Wilson, President of the Vermilion Fairways Board to about twenty-five members present at the meeting. After discussion and questions from the members, the proposal went to a vote.
The result of the vote taken directly plus the write-in and proxies that were received was unanimous – 100 “yes” and 0 “no”. The number of votes easily represented a quorum (10%) of the 347 members that is required by the Vermilion Fairways By-Laws.
Thanks to the Members for taking the time to vote and enthusiastically endorsing this proposal. IMPORTANT: Special Meeting of Vermilion Fairways Members

2019 Spring Letter
March 21, 2019
Dear Vermilion Fairways Golf Club Members,
As we anxiously await the end of Winter’s stranglehold, dreams of Springtime temperatures and the greening of Vermilion Fairways start to fill our thoughts. Do not despair—Golf will be with us soon!
As you will all recall, due to the horrific weather encountered during the 2018 season, course revenues plummeted, thereby creating a financial crisis. Fortunately, through the leadership and yeoman efforts of Dean Salminen and Steve Herr, and with the irreplaceable input of Bill Peterson, the entire fiscal structure of VF has been overhauled. To that we can add the generosity and support of our members such that we begin 2019 on a solid footing. The import here is that this year we will be able to maintain our green fee, cart and season pass rates without any increases. Needless to say, we would not be here without the contributions and efforts of our active members, and the Board wishes to thank you.
New memberships: $150.00 Non-member rates: 9 holes $22.00/18 holes $30.00 Member rates: 9 holes $20.00/18 holes $25.00 10 Round pass: Member: $180.00/Non-member $200.00 Other rates remain the same as 2018.
Now is the time to purchase your annual golf pass, membership for family members/friends and 10 round passes—Spring will be here before you know it!
