Welcome to Jonathan's Landing

 
Message from the GM
By Dick Naumann
 
Looking at my placement in the newsletter, I am thinking about renaming my article “Between the Bobs”. Looking at both of their articles, I don’t have to say any more about TASTE, other than to say how very excited the entire staff is about the new concept.  Come out and enjoy the new menu.

To expand on Bob Kane’s comments regarding the Clubhouse renovation at Old Trail, in addition to a big thank you to the committee, I would like to recognize and thank our contractor.  Colin Foreman (FBI Construction / Air Handler’s Inc.) is a Jonathan's Landing Golf Club Member and a resident of Old Trail. His crews were fantastic during the entire process. Colin’s vision helped us to create a fantastic end result that every JL Member will surely be proud of.

This would not be a Dick Naumann newsletter piece without a discussion about Membership recruitment so I will continue Bob Widman’s sentiments.  We are having a very good year in welcoming new Members to our great Club.  As I have said before, to remain even for the year, we need one out of every twenty Members to introduce and sponsor a new Member each year. Please do not leave that responsibility to your neighbor or the next Member, BE THE ONE!

We will be honoring our Members who are veterans of the armed forces on Veteran’s Day (Sunday, November 11th) with a complimentary meal at The Landing.  When you make your reservation, please let us know the years you served and in what branch. The Landing will be decorated in red, white and blue, and we will play patriotic music in the background.  It should be a fun night and a fitting way to thank your fellow Members for their service to our country.

You will see that we have switched over to paper straws to be more environmentally friendly. I have noticed the straws do not last a full 18 holes, so, grab a new one as you make the turn. There are so many great water bottles available on the market, please consider bringing one and filling it with ice water before your round. It would be great to reduce the number of Styrofoam cups used at Jonathan's Landing.

Another new program we are instituting this year is the “Quarter Century Club.” The Board will be recognizing all of our Members with 25 years of Membership at a reception in early January.  If you have been a JL Member for 25 years of more, THANK YOU, and watch your mailbox for more information and details.

With the holiday season quickly approaching, the “Employee Holiday Fund” mailing will be sent out soon with a nice note from President Bob Kane.  The fund is distributed to the hourly staff based on a formula that recognizes length of service, hours worked during 2018 and total wages earned during the year.  The staff greatly appreciates your kindness and generosity during the holiday season.

I look forward to seeing you soon at the Club.
