Welcome to Jonathan's Landing Golf Club

Message from the GM
By Dick Naumann

By the time you are reading this I will be in Augusta, Georgia helping the management team at Augusta National Golf Club during The Masters.  This is my ninth year doing The Masters.  I manage the Magnolia Suite, which is the hospitality venue for VIP guests of the club.  I cater to the leadership from the USGA, PGA TOUR, PGA of America, LPGA, R&A, many other golf associations from around the world, the rules officials and international media dignitaries.  In total, I serve approximately 300 people per day breakfast, lunch and afternoon hors d’oeuvres along with bar service.  The Masters is the epicenter of the world of golf for the week, and my suite brings together the major players in the governance of the game.  It is an absolute thrill to be there and I appreciate the Membership and our Board being supportive of me continuing my participation at the event.

Back here in Jupiter it is “Go Time” with the Fazio project.  Over the past few weeks deliveries of irrigation pipe, sprinklers and construction materials have been arriving on site.  The construction crew is being assembled and trained. With ground breaking on April 2nd, I will be sending periodic e-mail updates with photos and video for you to keep current on our progress. Together with the Clubhouse decorating project it will be an exciting summer at Old Trail.

Make your reservation for the Beach Party early; we will be limiting reservations to the first 450 people and will then establish a wait list.  450 is an important number because it is the maximum number we can seat inside in case of bad weather.  If you recall the Welcome Back Party when it rained, we did not have the option of indoor seating for all 585 people who attended the party so we couldn’t move in with a seat for everyone.  Luckily the weather pulled through and we got the tables set outside and the show went on.  If, and hopefully when, it appears that there is no threat of rain we will open the wait list and get everyone in for the event.  I don’t want anyone to miss the party; however, we can’t set ourselves up for failure.

This has been a great season at JL.  The weather has been fantastic.  The golf courses have been playing great and the events have been fun and competitive.  The tennis program, fitness and spa are as busy as ever with extremely positive feedback coming from the Membership.  Before too long many of you will head back to your northern homes for the summer.  I wish you safe travels if I do not see you before you leave.
