Welcome to Jonathan's Landing Golf Club

Message from the GM
By Dick Naumann

As I write this note to you, the house in Downingtown, PA is empty, the moving truck is on the way, and my son and wife Jennifer are driving down. The closing on our home is a few days away, and after seven months of a sometimes challenging transition, we can finally settle into our new home.

It is great to see the Membership return and the activity level at the Club increase. We have such a vibrant Club with so much to do. This November Journal is loaded with information about upcoming events and activities; jump back in and enjoy the fun!

To keep our offerings fresh, the Wednesday Chef’s Buffets will have some new themes and some new presentations added to the already popular themes.  A notable change for the Wednesday Chef’s Buffet is that we will be accepting and encouraging reservations. Seating preferences will be honored in the order that the reservations are received.

Happy Hour is a big hit here at JL. We are going to try something new this season and offer Happy Hour every day of the week from 4:00pm to 6:00pm with added hours on the traditional Wednesday Happy Hour.  House wines and cocktails will be $6 and all beer will be priced at $4. A selection of appetizers will be offered along with one of Joseph’s famous specialty burgers.  Come be happy all week long!

The final stage of the Village Clubhouse renovations has been completed. The ladies will enjoy a freshly decorated Locker Room/Lounge this season. Out other large projects were infrastructure related, and while these projects are certainly not “sexy” or visible to all of you, they are nonetheless very important. The air conditioning chiller at the Tennis & Fitness Center was replaced as well as the dish washing machine in The Landing Kitchen. The last of the decking on the Village #2 to #3 bridge is currently being installed, and the rails on the #17 shuttle ferry have been replaced. Finally, to wrap up our projects for the off-season, out phone systems were also replaced this past month.

We are starting a new endeavor in November - an automated satisfaction survey made available to us as a “Distinguished Club of America.” The surveys will go out randomly on a daily basis with a frequency of one survey per Member each quarter.  We will adjust the distribution list from May through October to include only our year-round Members.  So those of you who leave for the summer will get two surveys in the following year and our year-round Members will see four.  This is a great opportunity for you to tell us how you are enjoying the different areas of the Club. The survey will be a fantastic tool for management to monitor our performance using real time data to help identify opportunities for improvement.  I have taken a demo of the survey, and it should take no longer than 15 minutes to complete.  Please watch your inbox for the survey and take the time fill it out in its entirety. It will be time well spent to help us better serve you.

When you have friends visiting this winter and they experience all that JL has to offer, remember that Wendy and Courtney are here to discuss Membership opportunities with them if a move to Jupiter may be in their future. Now is a great time for them to join Jonathan’s Landing! I look forward to seeing you soon at the Club.
