  An update from
 Golf Manager
 Joe Sepesy


Hello to all our Members,
Thank you to all our Golf Members for making me feel so welcome, also a thank you for completing the survey. The insight this is bringing is invaluable as we work to get the course back to optimal conditions.

There were several comments regarding the driving range, and I am happy to announce that the range is in the process of receiving a much-needed facelift. SYNlawn Bermuda and Dave Pelz Golf will be supplying the new warm-up practice area for us.
 
We will install a 5-foot tee strike and a 3-foot SYNTipede artificial grass combination that will satisfy any golfing level. This can be installed in our present space and accommodate about 12 hitters at a time. It will also be left-handed friendly. The beauty is that we will now have a fairway/rough practice tee that you can actually put a wooden tee into (thankfully meaning no more rubber tees). The orders have already been completed, and the project will start in the next couple of months and will only take about a week to complete. We are fortunate to have one of our Members, Thad Crouch overseeing this project with his personal touch and expertise.

Below you will see the two types of grass to be installed side by side. This should prove to be very user-friendly for all levels over many years to come. For any further information, please visit the website: Tee Strike.


The new range balls (10,000 balls) have been ordered and are expected to be delivered at the beginning of December and the new Wittek Range Ball Washer to complete the project. We will, of course, keep you abreast of the progress as we go along.

Over the next few weeks, our outside services equipment and range bag stands will be fully renovated, creating a fresh new look. I also am happy to say the cart fleet is back to original numbers with the receipt and installation of new batteries, and, in some cases, GPS systems.

Please find our upcoming events below, thank you to Dwayne for organizing, and we both hope to see you at one of the events, or on the course very soon.

Here’s to the future!
Happy Golfing!
Joe



 
  Course update with
 Grounds Superintendent
 Andre Cannonier


Good day Members,
As part of the continued course maintenance projects, we are aware of the blemishes on the greens near several of the holes causing unsightly bald spots. The issue has been identified, and we hope the greens will return to their former glory quickly with the treatment schedule in place. The remaining few bunkers are now finalized, with new sand added, and the edge project continues.

The aeration took well with all the rain in recent weeks, resulting in softer greens for optimal play. You will see work has begun on both sets of steps for the ladies' tee, numbers 6 and 15. This will be completed within the next three weeks.

Enjoy the course and the cooler weather, more updates in the following newsletter.
Regards
Andre

 The seasons are changing


The change of seasons is upon us and the pro shop is filling up with sweaters, long sleeves and other fall items for both men and women. But don’t hesitate as some are in limited supply.

 
 Another notice about
 the course


To help with your play and accuracy you may have noticed that the flag sticks now have red, white and blue flags which denote the placement of the hole on the green.
Front = red
White = middle
Blue = back.
Choose your clubs wisely.

 
 Reminder about proper golf

Reminder to members and guest that proper golf attire is required when playing golf and using the practice tee.

  Golf with a twist
 Par 18 instead of 18 holes

You play over half of your shots on a normal round in the 'scoring zone' (the area inside 100 yards of the green). So it makes sense that you'd want to improve in this zone, and playing a round of holes in this zone is a fun way to do that.



 
“You don't even have to take out a full set of clubs. Your #7 iron, a wedge and putter will do. Then you choose any six holes of the course that you prefer and convert them to par 3s (if they aren't already), by teeing up 100-150 yards out.”


   Throw out the scorecard
Don't restrict golf to an 18-hole, par-72, 4-hour experience. It can be so much more than that. You can choose how you want to enjoy golf each time you play. That may be a traditional format on one day and a 70-yard, 9-hole format on another day. Free yourself up to more ways of enjoying this great game.

  Break 100
 Smallest club, biggest impact

When you’re trying to break 100, eliminating three-putts is one of the most impactful improvements you can make. You don’t have to hit 200+ yard drives to break 100. The humble putter has the power to take you into the 90s.


You should be spending at least a third of your practice time on putting. And to make the most of that time, make sure you have the right putting setup.

Check your setup


 
The average round involves at least 36 putts and – at most – 14 drives. Yet “hitting longer drives” is what most golfers prioritize. Putting better may not seem as exciting as driving further, but it makes a bigger impact on your scorecard.




   Try this simple
 putting assessment
Take ten different 30-foot putts on the practice green and count how many you get to within 3 feet. If too many of your putts finish outside 3 feet, let’s get together and change that.

Remove 3-putts
