Welcome to Jonathan's Landing Golf Club
 


Message from the General Manager
By Tim Richards

It seems like every year more of our Members are staying for the month of May. The Club was very active as evidenced by the 260 people that attended the Memorial Day BBQ. We had a record turnout for the golf tournament with 33 teams. Congratulations to the tournament winners: Kevin & Karen Johnson and Rich & Lisa Arline. We had great weather throughout the month, but that’s starting to change as the summer heat is setting in.

I keep hearing how great our course conditions are. Not only are we hearing this from you; we also heard this from the players in the South Florida PGA Senior Open Championship which was held on the Fazio and Hills courses at Old Trail. While Fred Harkness did not win his division he came in 3rd place out of 30 players, shooting a 69 in his final round for a score of 145. Way to go, Fred!

I recently received a letter from the International Tennis Federation thanking David Boggs and all of the JL Member volunteers for their help with the ITF Seniors World Individual Championships which was held at JL, Mirasol, Ibis, BallenIsles, Palm Beach Gardens Tennis Club and PGA National. The players in this event are the best amateur tennis players in the world. There were 79 countries represented in this tournament. This was a great event for the Club and our tennis community. Thank you David and to all of the volunteers who made this event such a success.

As our Members head north and the season ends, people always ask me “what does the staff do all summer?” While member activity slows down, we keep quite busy getting ready for your return in the Fall. In addition, our staffing levels drop considerably. During the summer all of our departments work on projects that typically can’t be done during the season. The Golf Course Maintenance staff takes on many tasks, such as aerifying the courses and removing Brazilian pepper trees. Steve Schimpf and his maintenance team do a significant amount of repair work and painting. Our Food and Beverage team spend a lot of time organizing all of the outlets and identifying the needs for the next season. The major task every year is putting together the budget which takes a significant amount of time to do.

We are making good progress on the Long Range Plan projects. We are in the final stage of negotiations with the contractor on the costs for the future Golf Course Maintenance facility and cart storage area. Our architect, Leo A. Daly, has started working on the plans for the Main Clubhouse. It is very exciting for our staff to work together with the professionals on the design development for the Golf Maintenance facility and the Clubhouse.
