Dear Members, March sure is a fickle month, weatherwise. It’s known for coming in “like a lion” and out “like a lamb” which gives me hope that we can put this cold winter weather behind us once and for all and get our golfers back on the course! We have some exciting events planned for you this month, starting with our Storybook Vineyards Wine Dinner on March 4th. We hope you’ll come out for this one-of-a-kind evening and meet Storybook founder and owner, Dr. Jerry Seps, who will be our special guest. Our World Handicap Seminar is also scheduled this month on Thursday, March 26th. This will be a great opportunity to learn the ins and outs of the new system. There are quite a few changes taking place in the handicap system for 2020 so be sure to join us so you’ll be “in the know.” We look forward to seeing you around the Club soon!

Please welcome our newest members! FULL GOLF MEMBERS Taylor & Danielle Froelich Greg & Sara Holmes Frank & Judith Janoski SOCIAL MEMBERS John & April Bowers Byron & Dori Canady John & Amanda Garavaglia Tracy & Lori McConnell DINING MEMBERS Larry & Kathi Thies

For what seems to be the third or fourth month in a row, I begin my note to you mentioning the weather. February (much like January, December and part of November) has been brutal in terms of the weather. More snow, cold and ice and NO GOLF! All of us so lucky to remain in Kansas City for the winter are very much anxious for spring weather to arrive. Those of you in warm weather climates, GOOD FOR YOU!

SEAN HANNA DIRECTOR OF GOLF seanh@lochlloyd.com

Beginning on March 3rd, you may start signing up for The 2020 Scotty. The Scotty (Member/Member) will kick off our major tournament schedule in 2020. The dates for The Scotty are May 14th through May 16th. The night of the 14th is our annual Calcutta auction, which is always a lot of fun. The actual golf begins on Friday and concludes on Saturday. The Scotty is a phenomenal golf event that everyone enjoys participating in. Please utilize ForeTees to sign up you and your partner. Please remember if you sign up for The Scotty, block off Sunday, May 17th on your calendar as well. We will utilize that day as a rain date in the event of inclement weather. Our goal is to make sure both rounds are completed. The WHS becomes active in Kansas City on March 1st. Make sure you have your APP downloaded and you can begin posting your scores. Look for an email from me regarding the do’s and don’ts of when and what scores can be posted, along with our new handicap hole allocations. Enjoy the month of March. It’s a great month filled with March Madness basketball, baseball spring training and a perfect month to start tuning up your golf game.

GOLF SHOP 816.322.2117 MARCH GOLF SHOP HOURS OF OPERATION 8a to 6p (closed Mondays) FIRST TEE TIMES Tee times will begin one hour after the Golf Shop opens, weather permitting

See you on the first tee, Sean

SPRING DEMO DAY Saturday, April 18th 12p to 4p We are excited to announce that we have our Demo Day scheduled for this spring. Demo Day is a great opportunity to test out the new equipment that is available for 2020 before you make your new club purchases for the season. Sales representatives from many of the major manufacturers will be on site at our Practice Facility on April 18th to showcase their new equipment. Mark your calendar and save the date!

WORLD HANDICAP SYSTEM IS APPROACHING “IN-SEASON” The WHS will soon return to “in-season” mode as of March 1st. With this said, you may begin posting all scores either in the Golf Shop or online, starting the first of March. We will remain in the active season through December 31st, 2020. With so many changes taking place, we know you’ll have questions. We invite you to attend our free seminar on Thursday, March 26th to “get in the know.” See complete details on this page and please RSVP so that we may plan and staff accordingly. One of the most-often-asked questions the Golf Operations team hears regarding handicapping is, “Should I post this score?” The answer, in any case, is YES … you should absolutely post each and every score played in medal play or match play formats. The handicap system works its best, and in the intended manner in which it was created, when each player posts every score. When you only post “the good scores,” your handicap is artificially low. This will make it nearly impossible to play “to your handicap” in addition to making yourself the partner that no one would want to play with in a competition. When you post scores that are higher than you actually achieved, giving you an artificially higher handicap, this makes you a “well-known” member for all of the wrong reasons. This also causes you to lose your golf mates quickly.

Get in the know! Thursday, March 26th 6p to 7:30p at the Clubhouse The handicap system, as we know it, has changed. Central Links Golf will be presenting everything you need to know about the new system during this seminar. The seminar is free but please RSVP so that we may plan and staff accordingly. A member charge bar will be available starting at 5:30p. Thank you!

RSVP by contacting the Golf Shop:

We ask that all members post each and every score from your rounds. Nine-hole scores can, and should, be posted as well. Should you have any questions on the handicap system, or if you need assistance in utilizing the system, please contact the Golf Professionals. We hope to see you on March 26th for our Handicap System Seminar!

Dear Members, With spring right around the corner, the Golf Course Maintenance team is anxious for warmer weather and ready to get the golfing season started! It’s been another long winter for the team, but there have been a lot of on-course and off-course undertakings and projects which have kept everyone busy throughout the winter months.


One such endeavor I’d like to share is the new partnership with the John Deere Company for all of our golf course equipment needs. This has been a project in the works for the past year. Please see the quote below from John Deere Golf Corporate Business Manager, John O’Leary, and another quote from our local John Deere distributor, Van Wall Equipment President, Don Van Houweling. It is an exciting time for The Country Club at Loch Lloyd to have the opportunity to partner with John Deere. A few of our associates were able to visit the John Deere Technical Training Center in North Carolina for several days of hands-on training and education (please see picture on right). This was an invaluable experience that the team will be able to use on a daily basis within our operations.

Again, we are looking forward to putting winter in the rear-view mirror and getting back to some of our regular maintenance practices. I’ll be sending out a more detailed spring update shortly and will also schedule our first town hall gathering of the year sometime near the end of March. We look forward to seeing everyone out on the course and around the Club in the weeks ahead. Sincerely, Jeff Steen, CGCS Director of Golf Course Maintenance The Country Club at Loch Lloyd

(from left to right)

Loch Lloyd associates Grant Suderman, Michael Crawford and Bruce Payne attended hands-on training at the John Deer Technical Training Center

“On behalf of John Deere, I want to thank you, The Country Club at Loch Lloyd, and FiveStar Lifestyles for putting your trust in John Deere and Van Wall Equipment. It’s not something we take for granted and we will work hard every day to provide you the best-in-class equipment, world-class customer support and innovative solutions that you expect from your equipment provider. ‘Trusted by the Best’ is our slogan and we are proud to have The Country Club at Loch Lloyd added to this list. Clubs such as Winged Foot, host of the 2020 US Open; Bellerive CC, host of the 100th PGA Championship; The Olympic Club; the PGA Tour; and PGA of America are all proud partners and you can expect the same level of commitment from us that they receive. Let me know if I can be of any assistance during the transition over to John Deere. We look forward to building our partnership, and more importantly our friendship, with Loch Lloyd and FiveStar.” John O’Leary, Golf Corporate Business Manager — Deere & Company “It has, for some time, been our goal at Van Wall Golf and Sports Turf and John Deere Golf to earn the right to be the trusted golf equipment partner with the team at The Country Club at Loch Lloyd. We see the Loch Lloyd property as one of the premier golf destinations in the Kansas City market and are focused on making the relationship one that not only supports the quality of play at Loch Lloyd but helps the Club do their job easier and at a lower overall cost. Thank you very much for this opportunity. As I told Jeff Steen, who deserves significant credit for making this a reality, we will not let the team down.” Don Van Houweling, President — Van Wall Equipment Page 5

It won’t be long and we’ll be routinely playing golf again. As winter appears in the rear-view mirror, it is time to begin planning for the 2020 golf season. We are looking forward to another year (hopefully without so much rain). The computer will be in operation March 1st, accepting scores in the new World Handicap System. You will find it is easy to use while keeping our stats and handicaps up to date.

“Joni’s approach to this bi-weekly exercise class is refreshing. Given it is ‘Yoga for Golf,’ we start each class stretching with a golf club. The real work begins with HIIT training (cardio and weights intermittently), followed by a final cool down with yoga stretches. We always finish slick with sweat and with a sense of well-being. My knees used to ache going up and down stairs. No more! The joyful camaraderie keeps everyone going. We are stronger, leaner and happier as a result. Join us! It works!” — Annie Presley and Jay Selanders

Storybook Founder, Dr. Jerry Seps

Dr. Jerry Seps, a former professor of European history, received his Ph.D. at U.C. Berkeley. A native of California, he has long been familiar with the wine industry. His grandfather was in the retail wine and liquor trade; his father was in the wholesale wine and liquor trade, and Jerry worked as a sommelier during his college years. Dr. Seps’ winemaking skills grew from theory, practice and personal philosophy. An apprenticeship, encompassing all aspects of winemaking, with one of the most famous Zinfandel makers in California (the late Joe Swan), yielded the necessary practical background. A competitive nature and his “why not” approach to achieving goals, coupled with both a willingness for hard work and the satisfactions to be gained from recreating a major wine estate, have provided the drive and focus for producing Storybook wines

Dr. Seps' Winemaking Philosophy: In 1976, after a long search, with the vital aid and

encouragement of his wife, Sigrid, Dr. Seps gave up his tenured professorship and moved to the Napa Valley. Here, he and his wife accepted the daunting challenge of creating a successful wine estate from nothing (a burned-out winery and abandoned vineyard). It was a good test of his lifelong credo of “Why Not?” Page 12
