Welcome to Jonathan's Landing Golf Club

Message from the GM
By Dick Naumann

Greetings from Jonathan’s Landing!  As we get into the heart of the summer, I thought I would take a few moments to share with you what is happening at your Club.  Most importantly, Kelly McCarthy has returned to work having recovered from the injuries she sustained in a car accident at the end of April.  She looks great and is hard at work planning your social activities for the upcoming season.

The golf courses are undergoing the annual aeration processes with one course closed at a time to be worked on while the other two are available for the enjoyment of the Members we have in town.  Don Taylor and his team are focusing on lowering cutting heights to give you firmer and faster playing conditions.

Summer food service hours have been expanded offering lunch Tuesday through Saturday and dinner Wednesday through Saturday in the Village.  At Old Trail, the 37th Hole is open Friday - Wednesday.  Chef Joseph recently completed the first level Sommelier course, took a course in curing meats and charcuterie, and joined the Board of the local American Culinary Federation.  Joe D. is busy interviewing prospective international staff to replace those who will not be returning next season.  We enjoy a large percentage of returnees which speaks volumes about the culture and working conditions here at JL.

There are a few capital projects being worked on or that will soon get underway. 

  • The Ladies’ Locker Room will be redecorated this summer with the project beginning July 6th. The walls will receive new paint and wallpaper, furniture will be reupholstered and augmented with some new pieces, new carpet will be installed, the lockers will be painted, and the space will be lit with new updated fixtures.The project is expected to be completed by Labor Day.
  • The pump system for the tennis court irrigation has been replaced. It has been acting up lately and we just could not risk being without the ability to water the courts for an extended period of time.
  • The chiller unit for the Tennis / Fitness / Spa Center will be replaced in August. A temporary unit will be brought on site, so the building will be without air conditioning for only one day. This is one of those projects that you won’t really see, but you certainly would feel it if the unit failed!
  • We are replacing the dishwasher in The Landing with a larger and faster machine to help our team keep up with the high demand.
  • A walk-in freezer is being added to the main kitchen and the liquor and dry storage areas will be reconfigured.
  • Our phone system is a candidate for display at the Smithsonian Institute and has reached the end of its useful life. By restructuring and eliminating phone lines, such as numerous FAX lines that are now rarely used in the day of scanning and email, we will be able to install a new VOIP phone system using those savings and leave additional savings for the bottom line.
  • On the Village Golf Course, the underwater rails for the shuttle will be replaced, the swing bridge will receive a new deck, the bridge connecting #2 & #3 will be refurbished, and the pylons for the #17 to #18 bridge have been repaired. There will also be work done to enhance some of the bunkers on the Hills Course.
  • Lastly, we are in the planning stages for the Fazio Course project and the Old Trail Clubhouse project, both scheduled to be completed next summer. These exciting projects will bring us to the next level in our pursuit of excellence and continuous improvement.
