Golf at Jonathan's Landing

Professionally Speaking

With Joe Downey, Director of Golf

It is exciting to say that the 2021-22 Season is officially underway. Opening event weeks are in full swing which brings great excitement to the rest of the schedule in place. This season is highly anticipated with the surge of golf in Florida, we are proud that Jonathan’s Landing and the opening of The Match course has been a trailblazer within the timing of this. The countdown to its opening is now closing in on one month!

We are excited to start our season with a new feature in our fleet of golf carts both in the Village and Old Trail. Each cart will be equipped with EZ-Go’s Pace Technology GPS unit. These 10” screens will be a great amenity for Member use and to our golf operations. It will give the golfer a state of the art bright, high resolution touch display of the golf course, providing automatic distances to the green as well as distance to anything on the hole, simply by touching the location on the screen. In addition, it provides a geo-fence to restricted areas that will help preserve our elite course conditions. We encourage feedback on these units as they undergo their use, so please do not hesitate to bring your thoughts to our attention of the Professional Staff.

As we make our way into our busy season, we will begin to see the tee sheet population increase. We understand many of you play in groups and require blocks of tee times to accommodate. Out of respect for other Members and their access to tee times, please make sure to release any surplus times as soon as possible and get your foursomes organized in ForeTees prior to the placeholders (X’s) automatic removal 48 hours in advance. When viewing a tee slot that has three open spots, three to five days away from the scheduled tee time, it is reasonable to assume that the current holder of the Player 1 slot has not placed the X’s in remaining player slots. If you would like to see if the open slots are available, we ask that you reach out to the Member through the ForeTees e-mail system or call the golf shop so we may contact the Member.

Should you wish to improve your swing, we remind you that the club offers private lessons and golf clinics by our Professional Staff lead by Director of Instruction, Cindy Petrusik. Every Monday and Tuesday Cindy holds her Stroke of the Week focusing on a different facet of the game each week. New this season will be the C & J Golf Schools, where Cindy, along with Head Professional Jared Werner, will hold half day golf schools focused on short game and full swing. These clinics and schools have been filling up quickly, so sign up in ForeTees if you are interested!

Finally, I’d like to bring attention to the retirement of one of the most important individuals who was a part of Jonathan’s Landing for the past 17 years, our Director of Golf Course Maintenance, Don Taylor. Over the years, Don led the Golf Course Maintenance team to create the high level of standards to our golf courses and surrounding landscape. His dedication to the club is something that all departments of the JL staff can admire and strive for. He departs with the golf courses in fantastic condition and left in the talented hands of Director of Agronomy, Brad Nelson. On behalf of the Golf Staff, we congratulate Don on his long time dedication to his role and wish him a happy, healthy retirement.

I look forward to catching up with everyone returning and thank everyone here this summer for all the support of our golf team and program.
