Welcome to Jonathan's Landing

 
Message from the GM
By Dick Naumann
 
Greetings from Jupiter to wherever your travels may have taken you.  For those of you who have remained here in town, I hope you have been enjoying the great weather.  What a difference from last May when I was talking about the 22 inches of rain we received.  By contrast, the weather in May has been dry, not too humid and not too terribly hot.  Let’s hope our good luck continues.

This will certainly be a very different summer compared to last year from a project perspective.  In 2018 we were in the middle of the Fazio Course renovation and the Old Trail Clubhouse project.  With both projects successfully completed, we get to enjoy the fruits of our labor this summer.  Don Taylor and his team completed the first aeration, verti-cutting and top dressing of the Fazio in the past two weeks.  This process will smooth out the tees, fairways, approaches, and greens and allow us to mow more closely providing a firmer and faster playing surface.  All three courses receive the same agronomic practices three times each over the summer; you should be thrilled with the conditions when we get back into the season.

We have just a few smaller projects scheduled for this summer.  The main wooden bridge from The Tern to the #10 tee is being redecked; in fact it should be completed by the end of this week.  The boards are now running in the direction of traffic (like the bridge at Old Trail) and should be very quiet compared to the clickity-clack of the past.  We also are in process of updating the restrooms at The Tern.  The employee restrooms at the grounds maintenance building will also be updated this summer.  The Card Room will receive new carpeting.  Lastly, the main lobby of the Clubhouse will receive a facelift this summer.  The old dented up wainscoting will be replaced with new wainscoting to match the Nickaleer and the Landing.  New wallpaper, furniture, and lighting will give the space a fresh new look.  Many thanks go out to Leslie Van Boven and the House Committee with designer Kate McRoberts for selecting the finishes.

I am planning a mid-summer Roundtable Discussion to give our year-round Members an opportunity to meet and ask questions, discuss concerns, and offer suggestions.  I did several roundtables during the season and they were all very positive and appreciated by those who attended.  Please join me in the Nickaleer Lounge at 9:30am on Tuesday, June 25th, coffee and Danish will be served.  Kindly call 561-746-1301 with your reservation, so we can size the table appropriately.

Also a note to our year-round Members, we will remain open in August again this year.  Thank you all for supporting the Club last summer, we look forward to another great season this summer.  Lunch is served Tuesday through Saturday and dinner Wednesday through Saturday.  We will remain in The Landing while the lobby is being renovated and then move up to the Nickaleer Lounge once the project is completed.  Just a reminder, take-out food may be ordered during our hours of operation and delivery (inside JL) is available for orders received by 5:00pm for delivery between 5:00 and 6:00pm.

Whether you are at your summer home away or here in Jupiter, talk to your friends, family, and associates about all JL has to offer.  With the addition of the fitness / spa / tennis center, The Landing, the renovation of the Fazio Course and Old Trail Clubhouse, and now the exciting plans for the Hills Course with the world-renown golf course architect Gil Hanse, JL is getting better year-by-year.  There is no better time to join Jonathan’s Landing Golf Club.  Member development is every Member’s responsibility, Friends Bring Friends to JL!
