The gardener of the San Diego Padres, Will Myers, is being sued for a sum of 60,000 dollars this dead season of the MLB.
In the off-season, Myers and his wife, Margaret, spend their time in Charlotte, North Carolina. After problems with his previous golf club, including problems with booking tee times due to too much demand, Myers set out to find a new course.
He made his way to Carmel Country Club and joined the membership in April 2020; Note that this was during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, a time when the sport of golf grew tremendously.
According to the Charlotte Observer, after paying $ 16,000 upfront, the remainder of her $ 80,000 startup fee was due for the next four Myers membership anniversary dates. But when golf flourished, so did the desire for tee times.
Carmel saw an increase in demand, causing Myers to again have trouble booking tee times. After much frustration, he and his wife gave up their membership in December 2020 and told the club that they were cheated and, according to the report, paid for golf privileges they could not enjoy.
According to a court file, the MLB All-Star “found it nearly impossible to find a tee time and often couldn’t even use the driving range.”
Carmel Country Club responded, according to the Observer, by charging the couple the remainder of their initiation fee ($ 64,000) with a payment date of December 31, 2020. A few months later, Carmel would sue in March 2021.
Then, in June 2021, Myers officially countered, claiming they suffered from Carmel’s “known misrepresentations and omissions.”
In response, Carmel denied all allegations and went on to say that the COVID-19 pandemic “immediately and overwhelmingly altered the lifestyles and leisure activities available to all club members.”
