Welcome to Jonathan's Landing Golf Club

Message from the GM
By Dick Naumann

January 2018, WOW, where did 2017 go? It went so fast beginning with my interview here the first week of January and concluding with our first Christmas in Florida.  2017 was a fantastic and transformational year for me and the Naumann Family.  I am so thrilled to be here with you at Jonathan’s Landing and we are so happy to be in our new home, getting settled.  Thank you all once again for being so welcoming during my first year.

As you may know, your Board and Committees have been working on developing a formalized Strategic Plan to act as our road map into the future.  It has been a very enlightening process meeting with all the standing committees to discuss the Club’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats (SWOT analysis), and brainstorm strategic initiatives to ensure success in the future for JL.  Approximately 100 Members have been involved so far; it has been great to hear your thoughts and ideas.  If you do not currently sit on a committee you may have not had an opportunity to voice your ideas to make Jonathan’s Landing the very best we can be.  To that end, I would like to invite you to participate in an informal discussion over coffee in early January.  This will give me an opportunity to listen and bring your thoughts to the Strategic Planning Committee and the Board as the plan comes together. I was thinking of a slick name, something like: “Muffins with the Manager” or “Donuts with Dick” or maybe “Chat with the Chump”…. you choose!  I’ll be in the Nickaleer Lounge on Friday, January 5th and again on Tuesday, January 9th each morning at 9:00am.  Please call the front desk with your RSVP so we can plan for the coffee and goodies.

If you can’t make one of the roundtable discussions there are certainly other options to be heard.  First and foremost, you can always call, 561-744-4223, e-mail, dnaumann@jonathanslanding.com, or stop by the office; I am here for you!  Comment cards are available in the dining rooms; please take a moment to fill them out.  I assure you, each and every card is read by our management team.  Also, we are in the process of a continuous survey program in which approximately 20 surveys are randomly distributed daily via e-mail.  So far 730 surveys have been sent out and we have received 278 back.  In the survey world a 38% response rate isn’t considered bad; however, it would be nice to have a better return.  Please keep an eye on your inbox and take a few moments to fill out the survey; it shouldn’t take more than ten minutes to do.  Thank you!

Please join me in Congratulating Chef Joseph for winning the South Florida Chapter of the American Culinary Federation Professionalism Award.  This prestigious award is given annually and is voted on by the Chapter members.  It is an honor to be recognized by his peers.  Joseph, we are proud of you and happy to have you as our Chef!

I look forward to seeing you all at the Club.  The facilities are ready, the staff is ready, come out and enjoy all that JL has to offer.
