Princess Anne Living - January/February 2015


MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT With the Holiday Season behind us, thoughts turn to the New Year, but before we move on I wanted to take this opportunity to personally thank all of those Members who generously donated to the Team Member Holiday Fund. We are so fortunate to have so many dedicated team members whose efforts define The Princess Anne experience. I would also like to recognize our four incoming Directors who have begun their three year terms. Robbie Bradshaw will lead our Green Committee and Tom Bohan will head up our Fitness Committee. Chip Cutchins and Ann Nickles will be assisting the Pool and Youth committees respectively. Appreciation is extended to everyone who attended the Annual Meeting and/or mailed in their voting proxies.

As you read this edition of the newsletter, you will soon realize that there is no “down” time at PACC. Your committees and staff have filled the calendar with opportunities for you and your family to participate and enjoy your Club. Feel free to use any of these events to demonstrate to prospective members exactly what they are missing by not being a part of The Princess Anne experience. Best wishes for a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year!

Gary Beck

UP-TO-DATE Happy New Year! As we begin 2015 our Operations Team is energized to focus on smart target goals and strategic initiatives that include technology, safety, security, planning for the fast approaching Princess Anne Centennial, and so much more. We are reminded of our operational mission that states “We are committed to utilizing our resources to continuously meet and exceed member expectations through ever-improving service.” As we strive towards this mission we are constantly addressing the delicate balance of prudently “utilizing resources” while “exceeding member expectations.” As always, I very much welcome your feedback and thoughts and may be reached on my direct line (757) 440-3100 or e-mail wshonk@princessannecc.com. The Princess Anne Family enjoyed over 37,000 visits this past year to the Princess Anne Lifestyles Fitness Center, and we anticipate even more in 2015. Look inside this issue for 100 reasons to exercise now and ways to “get on the ball” with special ball exercises. Now is the perfect time to honor your New Year’s health resolution and we invite you to take advantage of your Club’s comprehensive fitness programming.

This is also the perfect time of year to plan your 2015 business and social calendar and as you do so I encourage you to think of the Princess Anne. Whether it is a private meeting for two or special occasion for over two hundred we are excited about the opportunity to cater to your every need. Please take a moment today to contact Director of Catering and Special Events Lori Ciccone (757) 440-3101 or lciccone@princessannecc.com to ensure your date is reserved. I very much look forward to seeing you at The Princess Anne in 2015!

Bill Shonk General Manager wshonk@princessannecc.com

Countdown to Centennial Celebration! 2016 will be an action-packed year at your Club. Plans are already being formulated for a multitude of events to celebrate PACC’s first 100 years. John Steinbreder has begun gathering information to write PACC’s Centennial History. Members are encouraged to share their club-related memorabilia and memories in order for a comprehensive story to be told. Please bring your treasures to Donna Reinhart-Bourgelas in the Administrative Suite. Thank you! Princess Anne Living - January/February 2015

TEAM MEMBER SPOTLIGHT

ROBERT (AKA BOBBY) CARROLL It’s easy to take for granted the excellent course conditions that exist at The Princess Anne throughout the year, but if not for the 15-20 men on the golf-course maintenance team, these conditions would not be available. One of the longest standing members of that team is Bobby Carroll. In June of 1969, when he was just 20 years-old, Bobby started working at the Club. Bobby was employed just a few months earlier than his neighbor and long-time friend, Gary Harris. At that time, Gary’s father, Alex, was golf course superintendent. Bobby has lived in Virginia Beach his whole life and attended Cox High School. Bobby’s responsibilities have changed during his 46 years of employment. He has helped repair a multitude of pieces of equipment and has helped to maintain and fix irrigation problems. Quite frequently he has mowed fairways. Bobby has always been willing to do anything that comes his way. Back in the day he sometimes worked as many as 80 hours per week, doing a morning shift that ended at 3:30 p.m. and then returning to the Club at night to take care of the greens until 11:00 p.m. The worst days that he remembers followed hurricanes. Hurricane Isabel hit the east coast in 2003 and was one of the costliest, deadliest, and strongest hurricanes that have ever struck the east coast. As Bobby recalls, it was almost as bad as the 1962 Ash Wednesday Storm. Hurricane Isabel left the golf course in shambles, with more than 200 fallen trees and washed out bunkers. Bobby remembers the entire PACC Operations Team coming together to help clean up the damage. Everyone had a hard time getting to work with downed trees blocking roads and flooding. The best days that Bobby remembers were days that he came to work to find everything as he left it the day prior. It’s difficult to not take golf course vandalism personally when you pour your heart and soul into it every day. Bobby recalls

6

a few occasions when vehicles drove on the greens and fairways, leaving donuts and/or damage behind. Bobby even remembers a golf cart that was found in the bottom of the swimming pool following a particularly bad night. Bobby likes to work on motors of all sorts, including lawn mowers. He also likes building things. He proudly recalls working with Gary Harris in the old shop, rebuilding a motor on Gary’s old Duster after the engine started running hot and missing. The two of them removed the motor, took it completely apart, cleaned the parts that were good, and replaced those that weren’t working properly. “It was a happy day when the motor was re-assembled and we fired her up and she came alive!” Bobby has one sister, and two brothers. His father was a Virginia Beach firefighter for 31 years. Both of his parents have been gone for about 20 years now. Bobby has never married because he hasn’t come across the perfect woman yet. He says good ones are hard to find, but he’s still looking. A fond memory for Bobby was getting home from work one day and spontaneously telling his family to pack their bags for Disney World. He traveled with his sister and brotherin-law and their daughter, Brittany, who was then 3 years-old. Brittany is now grown and works at Breakers. The family had a fantastic four day adventure and Bobby hopes to make the trip again one day. Over the years, Bobby has seen many changes in the course and the clubhouse. He has helped with two golf course remodels and fondly remembers the old clubhouse and pro shop that was detached from the main building. He recalls houses on the property that have since been torn down. He even remembers a home that stood in what is now the small lot off Holly Road that was occupied by two employees. This home was actually moved to a location off of Norfolk Avenue. As Bobby reflected upon the years that he’s been at The Princess Anne, he smiled and said, “The good ol’ days might be gone, but the present days are alright too.” He jokes that maybe he and Gary will end up as bronze statues on the course like many that are seen around town.

How Many Strokes?

Question #1:

Janie has real problems with her score and her golf game. Can you help her with her score? Janie’s major problem is not her swing, her putting, her chipping, but it is her alignment She has begun making lines on her ball to aid in her alignment. She draws a line on the ball and uses it to point to her intended line of play. Last week she began having problems hitting it straight again. Her line did not seem to be working. On her tee shot she hit a duck hook and her ball landed under a tree. Luckily she was inbounds, but she was worried that there might be roots under

the surface of the tree. So Janie took a tee and prodded around the area where her ball lay under the tree. She wanted to be sure she could make a safe stroke at the ball. It was not worth an injury to her wrist. After determining that she could make a safe stroke, Janie then pitched her ball back into the fairway. Unfortunately the ball came to rest in a puddle of water .Janie lifted her ball, cleaned it, and placed it in the nearest point of relief. She then hit a nice shot onto the green close to the flag and was able to hole out her short put. What a relief that this hold was finished. What was Janie’s score?

Answer Stroke 1:

Tee shot

Stroke 5:

Shot to green

Stroke 2:

Pitch to fairway

Stroke 6:

Putt

Strokes 3 & 4:

2 penalty strokes. Placed ball instead of dropping, Decision 20-6/1.

Score for the Hole was 6.

Points to Remember:

What happened? Janie put a line on her ball and used it as an alignment aid. This is permitted.

1. If you are worried about hitting something that might be hidden, like a root, rock cart path, etc., you may probe the area so long as nothing is improved.

What else happened? Janie tested the ground under the tree. This is permitted so long as she didn’t improve her lie, area of her swing, stance or line of play. Decision 13-2/27. What next? Janie lifted her ball from casual water and cleaned it. This was permitted; however, when she put it back into play, she placed it instead of dropping it as required. The penalty is 2 strokes in stroke play or loss of hole in match play. Rule 25-1.

26

2. If you find a root or embedded rock, there is no free relief. You must play it or declare the ball unplayable(1 stroke penalty). If you find a part of the cart path, sprinkler head or another obstruction which would interfere with your swing, you get free relief. 3. When taking relief from casual water(or any abnormal ground condition) or an immovable obstruction you may clean the ball. When putting the ball back into play, it must be dropped. Princess Anne Living - January/February 2015


THE GOLDEN RULES Question #2: Denise has the reputation of doing things her way. Her friends think that this tendency affects her score. Can you calculate her score on this hole? Denise always tees up with her ball inside the tee markers, but has her stance completely outside the tee markers. She often does this after glancing smugly at her fellow competitors waiting for their comments. Yesterday that is exactly how she started. Her tee shot went down the middle of the fairway. However it landed beside a sprinkler head. Her ball was not on the sprinkler head, she did not have to stand on it, and her club would not hit it during the stroke. However, the ball was very close to the sprinkler head

and she said it interfered mentally with her intended stroke. She just could not hit a ball that was that close to an obstruction. She took relief and dropped it within one club length of where it was at rest and not nearer the hole. Denise then hit over a bunker and landed her ball on the fringe of the green. She brushed away some sand lying around her ball before she chipped onto the green. It was a great chip and she was able to make her putt. And she finished with a cheer! How many strokes did Denise have on this hole? Did she really have anything to cheer about?

Answer Stroke 1:

Tee shot

Stroke 7:

Chip shot

Strokes 2 & 3:

2 penalty strokes. Ball lifted without authority and not replaced. Rule 18-2a.

Stroke 8:

Putt

Stroke 4:

Shot to fringe

Strokes 5 & 6:

2 penalty strokes. Removing sand. Rule 13-2.

Score for the hole was 8.

What Happened?

Points to Remember:

Denise correctly teed her ball within the teeing ground. Rule 11-1 allows a player to stand outside the teeing ground to play a ball within it.

1.

You may stand outside the tee markers to play a ball within it. You May NOT move the tee marker.

2.

You get free relief from an immovable obstruction(i.e. a sprinkler head, drain, etc.) only if it interferes with the lie of your ball, your stance or the area of your swing.

3.

Sand and loose soil are considered to be “lose impediments”(which can be moved) only if on the putting green or the teeing ground. Elsewhere, sand and loose soil cannot be moved if this improves your lie stance swing or line of play.

What happened next? Denise was penalized 2 strokes for improperly taking relief from a sprinkler head. Decision 24-2a/1 states that a player gets no free relief for “mental” interference by an obstruction. What next? Denise was penalized 2 strokes for removing sand lying around the ball in the fringe. Rule 13-2 states that the lie of the ball cannot be improved by removing sand except on the tee or the putting green.

PASMGA Year In Review 2014 was an exciting year for Senior Golfers at The Princess Anne Country Club. The inception of the Princess Anne Senior Men’s Golf Association provided a weekly opportunity for members of the organization to play golf, socialize, and have fun with other members. The group averaged 42 players per play day each Wednesday morning at 8:30 a.m. from May to November. The success of the association was a direct result of the hard work from our inaugural Officers and Board: President Tom Hyman, Vice President Chris Fanney, Secretary Jim Sherlock, and Treasurer Jim Gregory. The Board Members included: Bill Hearst, Beau Walker, Jim Allen, Robert Fuqua, Bill Mizell, and Roger Stroud. Anyone interested in joining PASMGA for 2015 can contact the golf shop for more details. Thanks to all PASMGA members for a great season and we look forward to many more to come!

PALG Year in Review Every Tuesday morning from April through November you can find our Princess Anne Lady Golfers playing golf and having fun on our golf course. 2014 was no different, as this was another fantastic year for our ladies! From cocktail parties to our Halloween dress up play day, the PALG knows how to have a blast! The last two seasons have been as successful as any in the past under the leadership of President Babs Neff. Babs is in the process of completing her two-year term and we are so thankful for all of her hard work in continuing on the PALG legacy. Thank you Babs for being a great leader and thank you to all of are ladies for another wonderful year! Please contact the Golf Shop if you are interested in joining the PALG for the 2015 season. 28

Junior Golf Year in Review Year in and year out The Princess Anne Junior Golf Program is one of the most sought after programs in the Tidewater area. With over 75 children from ages 6-13 participating each Wednesday, Thursday and Friday mornings throughout the summer, 2014 was no different. Our junior golfers continue to excel on many different levels. Sixteen of our Junior Program graduates are currently on their high school golf team. Plus Carson Poulus finished 29th in the 9 year-old division at the US World Championships held at Pinehurst Resort this past summer. Carson’s scores of 78-75-78 were amazing scores under the immense pressures of a World Championships. Nicholas Roland was the recipient of the 2014 Beck/Paolini Award, given to the Junior Golfer of the Year from our program. The success of our our program has been attributed to the hard work from our Professional Staff, specifically Assistant Golf Profession/Junior Golf Leader Laura Landon. Laura’s love of the game and of our junior golfers is evident in her instruction and the hard work she puts into making the PACC Junior Golf Program one of the best in the state of Virginia. Thank you to all of our young golfers and their parents for another great season!!

FROM THE COURTS Tennis Talk Happy New Year! We hope you all had a wonderful time with your families over the holidays and are ready to get back on court! We certainly are, with all the programs resuming the second week of January. Reflecting back, 2014 was a fantastic achievement-filled year with a third straight win at Spindle Cup, a fifth straight win at Junior Country Club Cup and a 3rd place finish at the Junior Team Tennis National Championships. In high school tennis, our kids from Norfolk Academy and Cape Henry Collegiate battled it out again in the State Finals with Cape Henry scoring their third straight win. Also, Cox High School girls’ team won the State Championship for the first time in several years. Another full field of 62 teams competed in our flagship tournament, the CHKD Winter Open Mixed last year which raised another $20,000 in proceeds for this great cause. It’s coming around again, February 6-8th, so be sure to get your entry in early in case a cut off is necessary for this hugely popular event. Also, a 4-hour warm-up event has been scheduled on January 31st in order for partners to practice together. It’s hard to believe that this time last year we were in the throes of Breakers Boulevard construction work which transformed the space outside the shop beautifully and also increased outside

court activity when it was completed. In November a huge new air conditioning unit was installed for our indoor tennis complex, so we look forward to warm weather again in order for it to be used! As far as our Operations Team, it seems that every year brings change. Last year we added Martin Black to our professional team as well as Logan Nipper who started as Pro Shop Attendant before quickly moving up to Pro Shop Manager. Both proved to be great additions to our program. Unfortunately for us, Logan accepted an opportunity to advance her career with another company in her field. So, while we are thrilled that she has decided to take that step, we are extremely sad to see her go and now have some pretty large shoes to fill. The process of finding a suitable replacement is already underway. Some members have been introduced to a game that’s sweeping the nation called “Pickle Ball” and requested that some opportunities for play be provided this year. Therefore, we are including it in our “Ping Pong Palooza” event in February, which will be held on a Friday night instead of Saturday afternoon. The event will now be called “Ping Pong Pickle Palooza” and it will be held on February 20th from 5:00-8:00 pm.

Thanksgiving Classic Tournament It was thrilling to attract 70 kids from all over the Mid-Atlantic region to PACC’s first Thanksgiving Junior Classic L5 Tournament last year! There were 15 kids from our program participating, so it was fortuitous that the event brought in some stiff competition for them on their home turf. This tournament had been an institution in Newport News for over 30 years until the tournament director finally retired, which provided an opportunity to host the event at PACC. The U12 Boys’ draw almost added up to half the entire tournament, with 29 boys participating, four of whom were ours. Everyone who came out to watch saw our competitors score some impressive victories over higher ranked opponents. Ashton Legum was victorious in a Richmond tournament the weekend prior and came into the tournament unseeded. He won his first three rounds, beating a kid who initially beat him in a previous tournament. Ashton was the third seed in the second match and the seventh seed in his third match before going down to the first seed in a nail biter! Charles Hobbs, also unseeded, won his first two rounds, taking out the fifth seed losing in a tough match by the # 1 seed who ended up winning the tournament. Andrew Roberts who is still eligible for the U16’s, won the boys’ U18’s division, beating Alexander Loope from Norfolk in the final by the score of 6-2,6-3. Here are the final results of our kids that reached at least the semis or finals: Boys’ U12 semi final - Damian Sancilio def. Ashton Legum 7-6,7-5

Charles, who is currently ranked #2 in the Mid-Atlantic in the U10 Boys was invited to College Park, MD in October to be on a Mid-Atlantic team of the top four U10 boys and girls to play the corresponding ranked boys and girls from Eastern and Middle States along with New England. Charles played the #1 boys spot and had wins over the USTA ranked #1 player from Eastern and Middle States. One of the boys is a year-round scholarship student at the USTA training center in New York. He had a tough loss to the #1 kid from New England, but the team match had already been decided.

Ashton Legum

Boys’ U14 round robin result - 3 way tie between Bryon Toner, Siddharth Pande and Rakkan Audeh, Audeh won by losing fewer sets. Girls’ U14 Consolation final - Hannah Collier def. Caroline Charles 6-3,6-2 34

“Ace Kickers” Nationals Team 3rd Place Our U18 Team captained by Dr. Helen Roberts had another fantastic experience at this year’s JTT National Championship in Columbia, SC finishing in 3rd place, one spot closer than they got at their last effort in Arizona two years prior. Once again it was a real roller coaster ride, as the Ace Kickers fought to get to the Top 4 Playoff. There are only 16 teams that got to compete at Nationals from around the country out of the 16,000 teams that started out in their respective leagues. There are four groups of four teams in the tournament where a round-robin is played within each group to determine the winning team. Then that team gets to play the first place teams from the other three groups for 1st through 4th place. The second place teams from each group played for 5th - 8th place and so on. The Ace Kickers actually lost their first match against a tough team from New York and thought they were doomed until they found out after beating the other two teams more decisively than the New Yorkers, that they had in fact won! What’s great about this format is that it’s all about winning the most total games possible and it doesn’t really matter if you win the individual matches, and that’s what it came down to. After winning our group, the Ace Kickers advanced to the Semis where they played the best team in the tournament, Texas. We lost narrowly by a mere eight games before going on Princess Anne Living - January/February 2015

to beat a team from South Carolina fairly easily for 3rd and 4th place. It would have been nice to have played Texas in the final, as we were clearly the next best team, but at that point it’s the luck of the draw. All in all, our kids were thrilled with the bronze medal for which they had fought tooth and nail. We only had six players, so it was always the same for each match putting Andrew Roberts and Nicole Krykanov in the singles matches; Emily Pence, Zoe Fraser, Sebastian Murillo and Lewis Goode in doubles matches; and then Nicole and Lewis for mixed matches which proved to be a formidable lineup. In the end, this was Lewis’ swan song for junior tennis, as he had already started his freshman year at UVA before jumping on a Greyhound to meet the rest of the team for one last hurrah. What a fitting finish it was, as he won all but one of his doubles and mixed doubles matches during the entire weekend. All the best Lewis and congrats on a phenomenal junior career at PACC! Most importantly, well done Ace Kickers, and here’s hoping there’s another shot at a national title!

FROM THE COURTS Thanksgiving Day Aerobics We love this event as it continues to grow every year because members bring family from out of town as their guests. Everyone loves to come out to hit tennis balls and do the high energy tennis drills for two hours before the family feast. This year we had 35 participants that gave it all they had to the cardio music blaring in the bubble. Since we’ve reached capacity in the bubble, we are going to have to move inside next year so we can run 4 courts of drills! We hope everyone had as much fun with the games as we did running them!

Never Underestimate the Power of a Dinky Serve! Most of us have played against this player. The one who hits the 100 mph bullet on their first serve that never goes in and then follows it up with a 25 mph blooper that bounces up around your ears for their second serve! The tendency is to sprint up from the baseline and tee off on it with a big forehand put away shot only to realize in horror that we just missed it again! It doesn’t really matter the level, but that “dinky” serve can be a real unsuspecting weapon because it looks so easy, and because it’s so slow, we end up having too much time and too many options which is a recipe for disaster. Here’s my five step plan on effectively returning this serve: 1) Rule #1 – Never try to hit winners on returns because if you miss it, it’s the same as a double fault. 2) Once you’ve established that they hit this kind of serve stand well inside the baseline to receive it before they begin their motion so that you don’t have to move far to get to it and you’ll be more in control of your feet when it’s time to hit the ball. 3) Most important - Have a plan in mind before the point even starts so that you have a better chance of executing it. 4) Think one shot ahead so that you don’t get caught admiring your shot from no man’s land before the ball comes hurtling back towards you. In other words, regardless of the shot you select you are going to either need to follow it to the net or get back to the baseline one way or another. 5) Here are your options: a) take it on your favorite wing and drive it deep crosscourt at ¾ speed and get to the net – for most of us that means a forehand. b) take it on your favorite wing and slice it deep crosscourt at ¾ speed and get to the net. c) take it on your favorite wing and slice it short crosscourt and get to the net as they are forced to run forward to a low, short ball that they’d need lift up over the net giving you a “sitter” volley. d) take it on your favorite wing and lob it down the line over the net person’s head and follow it to the service line in case they lob you back. e) take it on your favorite wing and drive it low down the line past the net player. Notice the common denominator, “take it on your favorite wing”! You should do that on any slow ball not just a weak second serve as it means that with a little extra footwork you have an opportunity to hit your best shot increasing your chances of winning the point dramatically.

LIFESTYLES & FITNESS

Exercises on the Ball This workout involves strength training exercises using an exercise ball. Many of these exercises are advanced and should only be performed by experienced exercisers with previous exercise ball and weightlifting experience. Make sure you warm up before beginning these exercises and stretch after the workout. Do 2-3 sets of 12-16 repetitions of each exercise, resting about 30 seconds in between. Start with a lighter weight the first time you do this workout as the movements will be harder using the exercise ball.

One-Legged Deadlift Stand with one foot on the ball, standing leg slightly bent, dumbbells in front of thighs. Keeping shoulders back, back flat and abs in, tip from the hips and bring weights down to knees, hands close to thighs. Contract your glutes and hamstrings to pull your torso back up. Switch legs and repeat.

Chest flFlyes with leg raise Lie on ball holding dumbbells straight up, palms facing in. Extend one leg and, keeping it extended, lower arms down to chest level. Contract chest to pull arms back to starting position. Keep the leg extended throughout the set, switching legs for each set.

Hamstring Rolls Lie on the floor and place heels on the ball. Squeeze glutes and lift hips until your body is in a straight line. Contracting the hamstrings, press the heels into the ball and roll it towards you while keeping the glutes and abs tight (don’t sink in the middle!).

Seated lateral raise with hip flexion Sit on the ball with dumbbells at sides. Lift one foot off the ground and, keeping it lifted, raise arms out to the sides to shoulder level, elbows slightly bent and wrists straight. Lower arms and repeat, keeping leg lifted throughout the set. Switch legs for each set.

Slowly bend front knee and lower hips towards the ground, keeping knee behind the toe and back straight. Squeeze the glutes and hamstrings to come up and repeat, switching legs for each set.

Oblique lift In side lying position on the ball with leg bent, fists on the temples, tighten obliques (muscles around the waist) and lift torso off the ball, pulling the ribcage toward the hip. Repeat and switch sides.

Pushups Place toes, shins or knees on the ball, hands on the floor a little wider than shoulders. Keeping abs tight and back flat, slowly bend elbows and lower torso, stopping when elbows are 90 degrees. Push up to starting position and repeat.,

Bent over rows on one leg Bend torso parallel to floor, back flat and weights straight down. Extend one leg and prop toe on the ball and bend elbows, squeezing the back to pull weights up to torso level. Lower arms and repeat, keeping leg extended. Switch legs for each set.

Squat with leg extension Place ball on a wall directly behind mid-lower back. Lean against the ball (slightly) and bend knees, lowering the body until knees are at 90 degree angles. At the bottom of the movement, extend one leg out, hold and lower, pushing back to starting position. Alternate legs with each repetition.
