Thank you all for your continued patience throughout the construction process. It is very much appreciated. Over the past few months, several Members have shared comments of how much our Membership misses their Club and that the limited access has brought them to the realization of how often they like to use the Club amenities. We are pleased to announce that lunch service will resume on October 1st, Tuesday through Saturday. Supper Club will be available starting October 14th, Wednesday and Friday nights. The dress code is casual for both lunch and Supper Club. While we plan to follow the published Social Calendar of Events, the listed events are still subject to change based on the construction schedule.
The Social Calendar, Golf Book and Fitness & Tennis calendars were mailed out mid-September. If you have not yet received a copy, they are available on the flyer rack in the main Clubhouse. There are many exciting events planned for all of you to enjoy this season. Our staff is very excited to see you back at JL, utilizing the Club and enjoying the unique camaraderie that our Membership shares. Due to construction, we strongly recommend carpooling to the Club during the opening events as cart parking will be limited.
There were many course upgrades this summer for our golf Members to enjoy. The Village Course has been aesthetically enhanced thanks to the beautification initiative that was led by the Green Committee along with Don Taylor’s creativity. The tee box on hole #16 was raised and vibrant landscaping was added. Palm trees and colorful plants have been added to the #10 tee, while additional coconut palms have been added to frame the #15 green. New plants were placed behind the 17th green to add color and frame the hole nicely.
The Golf Course Maintenance staff continued removing the palmetto palms (the bushes that eat golf balls) and Brazilian pepper trees on the Hills course. The area between #5, #6, #7 and #8 has been cleared out, creating a nice open area that will decrease the number of lost golf balls and increase airflow and sunlight for the #8 tee.
