Welcome to Jonathan's Landing Golf Club

Message from the GM
By Dick Naumann

The coffee roundtable discussions earlier this month were very informative and insightful.  I have two more roundtables scheduled for Wednesday, February 7th and Friday, February 16th, both at 9:00am in the Nickaleer Lounge.  Your input regarding what you like about the Club and areas that you feel we can improve will be greatly appreciated.  I hope to see you there.  Please call the front desk with a reservation so that we can plan accordingly.

A suggestion made at one of the first sessions will be instituted right away.  The Club will send an “In Memoriam” notice informing the Membership when a Member or spouse passes away.  Especially in the off-season, there are times that we lose a friend and fellow Member and do not hear the news until months later.  The challenge here is that we can only communicate what we know.  Please send your information including services and arrangements to Lisa Berry via e-mail at lisab@jonathanslanding.com or by phone at 561-744-4240.

We had a scary incident at the Club this month when a Member choked on some food.  Luckily, Chef Joseph was close and rushed to help perform the Heimlich maneuver, dislodging the obstruction.  This was a reminder and a validation to the importance of emergency the training that we provide to our staff.  Our staff receives training in first aid and also the use of Automated External Defibrillators (AED’s), so that they are ready to help during an emergency.  Luckily, we have not had the need to use these units during the many years that we have had them here at JL.  Many of our Members may not know that we have these lifesaving devices right here on our property or where they are located.  The Club owns eight AED devices; they are located in the Village Golf Shop, Old Trail Golf Shop, Golf Course Maintenance buildings at the Village and Old Trail, Fitness Center, Tennis Shop, Old Trail Dining Room and the reception desk in the Clubhouse.  An AED is the third “link of life” in the response to a cardiac arrest victim.  If you run into an emergency situation, the very first “link” is to get a call into 911.  If you have a cell phone, call 911 immediately.  Have someone else call the Clubhouse (561-747-7600); the employee who answers the phone will get the AED and an employee trained in AED / CPR will be in transport to the victim.  The second “link of life” is administering CPR.  The third link, as mentioned earlier, is the shock from the AED, and the fourth link is the treatment and transport by professional paramedics, which is why it is so important to get the call into 911 as soon as possible.  Remember, time is critical!  Once a victim goes into cardiac arrest, their chance for survival diminishes 10% for every minute that passes.  Let’s hope our good luck continues, but rest assured that we are well-equipped and trained to handle a cardiac emergency if one were to occur.

Now back to happier subjects, the Club is busy and vibrant, the golf courses are in great shape, the tennis center, fitness, and spa are full of happy Members, and comments about our food and service continue to be very positive.  Come out and enjoy everything JL has to offer, I look forward to seeing you soon at the Club.
