December was a fantastic month for the golf course, with Mother Nature providing us with a moderate mix of rain, cool and warm temperatures, which greatly assisted us in managing the turf. We had several golf events throughout the month which were considered a huge success from a turf conditioning standpoint and we look forward to continued success as we move into the New Year.
As a whole, 2017 was a phenomenal year for us, mainly due to the hard work and dedication of the Golf Course Maintenance team. While each and every one of my team members are important to the process, I especially want to recognize and thank my Assistants, Nick Dolimpio and Bobby Chesney, along with our Equipment Manager Jeff Clymer. No matter the situation, these three individuals remain focused on their dedication to the overall success of the course through their hard work, professional attitudes, and flexible schedules which allow us to handle course maintenance occurrences whenever needed.
I also want to take this opportunity to thank you, the Lake Nona Members and your guests for showing your appreciation of our efforts on the course by following our cart traffic directions, practicing divot patterns on the range, filling divots and fixing ball marks, which helps our golf course maintenance team to continue to strive for course perfection each and every day.
On behalf of the maintenance team, we wish you all a healthy and prosperous 2018 and as always, we look forward to seeing you out on the course.
Brandon Richey, Golf Course Superintendent
