In the Town Hall presentation on Saturday morning, POA General Manager Scott Auer openly outlined the staffing challenges our Clubhouse is facing. Since our Executive Chef resigned in May, the Clubhouse has also lost its sous chef, its lead line chef, and several front-of-the-house employees. To exacerbate the situation, at the exact time that Scott was outlining the Clubhouse staffing situation, we had two more back-of-the-house employees resign.
As a result, this necessitated POA management to make the difficult decision to revise the dining schedule in a way that would guarantee a consistent, quality dining experience during a temporary transition period while addressing hiring and training.
We currently are in the final stages of securing a new executive chef and are actively recruiting to fully staff the food and beverage operation. In the meantime, Guest Chef Michael Gogolin is managing the kitchen.
Rather than stretch our staff, we have decided to put our energy into daytime service until we can guarantee a positive evening dining experience. As a result, the Clubhouse will:
Pause dinner service on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays while prioritizing lunch service from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. This will not affect clubs and organizations already scheduled at the Clubhouse.
Feature themed action food stations on Friday and Saturday nights, starting on Friday, July 21.
Each week, Sunday brunch will continue from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
To give Property Owners an additional dining option, Duffer’s is expanding its service until 7 p.m. – and not just on Sundays – on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
We apologize for the inconvenience that this creates. However, we are committed to providing the best Property Owner experience while we rebuild our food and beverage team.
Thank you for your patience.
Your POA Staff
