Members of the Woodbridge Golf and Country Club this week received notices stating general manager Rick Morgan will no longer be with the company.
The letter from Jim Keller, president of the club’s board of directors, said Morgan’s last day as general manager will be Dec. 31.
The letter was sent electronically, as well as posted at the country club located at 800 E. Woodbridge Road.
Keller’s letter states the board is working on the details for a transition plan and that additional information will be provided when it becomes available.
“The Board wishes Rick the best in his next chapter of his life,” Keller’s letter states.
Morgan’s departure comes in the early stages of the club’s revitalization to become more “family friendly.”
Construction on a new, two-story clubhouse to replace the current building is expected to begin in June, with a tentative completion date of late summer 2015.
Last month, Morgan and Keller said the club was trying to separate itself from public golf courses that only offer golf to patrons.
The current clubhouse, built in 1956, is a single-story structure about 10,000 square feet in size. the new building is expected to be 35,000 square feet, featuring a banquet hall for 300 people on the second floor, overlooking the 27-hole golf course.
In addition, two new membership rooms — one for those who like to socialize and the other for those who play golf, tennis, or use the swimming pool — will also be located upstairs.
The new building will also feature a computer and game room, as well as new locker rooms and an exercise facility, among other new amenities.
The project is expected to cost about $8 million.
The club will remain open during construction, with current amenities and services to be located across the street.
Keller said the construction will remain on schedule in his letter.
The board is in discussion with a nationally recognized private club executive placement firm to help find Morgan’s successor, Keller said. The firm will present its program to the board next month, the letter states.
Keller and Morgan were not available for comment.
