Last week we received .7 inches of rain.

We experienced our first “cold front” (lows in mid to upper 50’s) and (highs low to mid 70’s).

We are trimming the mangroves left of the driving range

The greens are stimping 10.75

Please remember to repair ball marks, fill divots, and abide by the green and red traffic poles.

Enjoy your golf course.

Thank you,

WORLD HANDICAPPING SYSTEM
As many of you may already be aware, the USGA and the other five governing bodies of handicapping around the world have convened to establish a World Handicapping System. Beginning January 1, 2020, the same handicapping policies, practices and procedures will be followed by all golfers worldwide. The new system has resulted in multiple changes to the current USGA handicapping system. All changes will take effect on January 1, 2020. The new system details may be found at www.usga.org , clicking on the “playing” tab and “world handicap system” at the bottom of the drop down list.

Subsequently, the USGA is calling upon all Handicap committees and PGA professionals nationwide to help educate their members on the new practices to be adopted on January 1, 2020. We will also be emailing helpful videos over the next several weeks that will assist with the understanding of these changes, this weeks is in the link below.

MENTAL GAME TIP OF THE WEEK
Do you tinker with your swing? Are you never quite satisfied with it? Are you someone who likes to take the tips and tricks you hear about on the Golf Channel and apply them to your swing? If you answered yes to any of those questions you are making it really difficult to play with a swing you can trust. While it’s normal to want to improve your technique, you’ve got to know that you have a swing that you can trust each time you head out to play. This level of trust is only possible when you learn how to love the swing you have today so you can confidently play with it despite any imperfections. Throughout the year, there’s a time to train your swing and a time to trust it. Make sure that you are providing yourself some room for growth when you want to work on your mechanics. And before hitting the course, make sure you are committed to playing confidently with the swing you have for the day. Straddling the fence between training and trusting will not help you achieve the results you desire.

Painted Bunting

PastedGraphic-1.jpgPerhaps the "showiest" of all North American songbirds, Painted Buntings are regular winter residents of Southwest Florida. Birders often report seeing them at nearby Sugden Park as well as at the Naples Botanical Garden. In the past couple of years there have been several sightings at feeders on Lighthouse Lane. You'll have little difficulty identifying the males like the one pictured above; the females' and juveniles' pale green and yellow green feathers offer perfect camouflage in the dense bushes, thickets, and hedges where they hang out. The bunting's song has been described as a loud, clear chant: "pew-eata, pew-eata, I eaty you too." Males can often be seen singing on an exposed perch. Until Federal law prohibited it, Painted Buntings were often kept as caged birds much like today's canaries. Their diet consists of seeds, insects. and caterpillars. They will frequent backyard feeders when offered a good songbird mix of seeds, including black oil sunflower seeds. During breeding season, Painted Buntings are usually observed alone or in pairs; at other times of the year, they can be seen foraging with a variety of other birds like Indigo Buntings and Cardinals.
