Around the Club

Little Did They Know... Luanne’s Perfect Shot

Luanne Johnson recorded an ace November 6th on #16 South Course. Witnessing and celebrating was her husband Dr. Craig Johnson. Congratulations!!

Shortly after this photo, Steve Morris (with wife Laurie Morris and Mr. and Mrs. St. Pierre ), would steal the thunder with a Hole in One on the South Course 10 Year Event on Sunday. This was his sixth hole in one! He did it on #3 on the North Course. Mr. Morris was between clubs so he gave it a 1/4 swing from 158 yards and drained it. Congratulations Mr. Morris!

Hole in One Club

All members who wish to participate in the Hole in One Club can sign up with any of the golf staff in the golf shop. There is an initial fee of $5.00 and an additional $5.00 is charged whenever the fund needs to be replenished. When a Hole in One is made, the golf shop staff will be notified and the Hole In One form must be filled out by the player. The golf staff will notify Accounting and $500 will be credited to the member’s account to be used at their discretion within 30 days. The player has the option of ordering a shadow box including the ball and scorecard used the the memorable round! This credit cannot be converted into a gift certificate or applied to credit book and is non-transferable. 14000 Dove Mountain Blvd. • Marana, AZ • 85658 • (520) 744-2555

Community Involvement Children’s Hospital Fundraiser On Friday, November 22nd we will host our first ever “Beat the Pro” to support Diamond Children’s Hospital and the Phoenix Children’s Hospital. Unlike the typical “Beat the Pro,” this event will have a slight twist to help us help the kids who rely on our Children’s Hospitals for world class care and treatment. A member of our Professional Staff will be on 4 of the Par 3’s, and you will have the chance to pledge any amount for a donation/challenge… now here is the twist….if the Pro hits their shot inside of yours, you double your donation (For example: If you pledge $10 and the Pro hits their shot closer, your donation would be $20). This is the third year that Troon Golf has supported this cause and all of our facilities across Arizona hold fundraisers throughout October and November and we are excited for The Gallery to join in the effort. As an added incentive, every member who hits a shot within 10 feet of the hole will receive a free 2014 National Troon Twosome Card…a great gift for a friend or family member as the holidays approach. The Gallery has a personal connection to this event as last year one of our server’s, Shannon, 3 year old daughter became critically ill with a high fever and doctors here at Diamond Children’s determined it was best to send little Makennah to Phoenix Children’s Hospital for further care. After several weeks of care, including being induced into a coma, the amazing staff at Phoenix Children’s was able to help Makennah return home and is now back to her healthy and happy self. Makennah is one of the thousands of great stories that are the result of the amazing care that the doctors and nurses are able to provide kids each year and are a testament to how blessed we are to have such a great facility this close to home. We at Troon and The Gallery appreciate you helping us, continue to “Drive Hope.”

GWGA Diaper Drive Update Thanks to our supportive membership, through Nov 12, 2013 we have raised: $2,420 = 76% to our goal. We still have a bit to go but confident we will get there. Please see the poster in the stairwell and flyers in the locker room to see how you can help. Thanks so much! Faith, Barb, & Robin 14000 Dove Mountain Blvd. • Marana, AZ • 85658 • (520) 744-2555

Golf November 2013 Golf Course Maintenance Report Since our last report in October, I am happy to say our winter ryegrass overseed went very well as expected. During the germination phase of over seeding it is very critical to water enough to keep the seed damp although not so much as to allow the seed to move laterally with excess water run off. We always fear a major rain event or stuck sprinkler head during the critical germination time when the grass is attaching to the soil surface. We experienced few irrigation malfunctions and only light rainfall one day. This year with the unusually cool overnight temperatures, the seed took an additional four to six days than normal to germinate, although was very consistent in density when it did. During the grow-in phase, in preparation for the entire winter season, we will apply three applications of fertilizer to encourage rapid growth and development. Initially when the seed germinates it is supported by its internal food supply which will only last a few weeks. It is very important the first fertilizer application is completed soon after germination so it doesn’t experience a decline in growth. This application will include the essential macro nutrients Nitrogen, Phosphorous and Potassium with numerous micro elements including Iron. This will be followed by a liquid spray application in two weeks. Unlike the first granular application which is taken up through the root system, the second application is absorbed through the leaves of the plant to ensure and speed up its development and maturity. The third and last application will be a granular applied in mid to late November. We use Ammonium Sulfate which in addition to a good Nitrogen source has a warm up effect during the colder days of November. By the end of November there is not sufficient daylight to experience continued rapid development of the turf until spring has arrived. During the months of December turf growth becomes very slow, which is why we encourage such rapid growth during October and November. The greens are presently being cut at 0.130” with a Stimp Measurement of nine and will be lowered to 0.125” over the coming days. The tees, fairways and collars have been lowered to 0.500 and will move to 0.425 within one week and will remain at that height until February. Starting in December, we will spray an iron charcoal blend every two to three weeks to maintain the deep green color we have become accustomed to during the winter months. Our Golf Maintenance Staff is very pleased with the over seeding outcome and confident of it’s continued development and improved playability. 14000 Dove Mountain Blvd. • Marana, AZ • 85658 • (520) 744-2555

Sports Club The Gallery and Del Webb As we announced several weeks ago, The Gallery has entered into an agreement with Pulte Homes for their new Del Webb project on Dove Mountain. This is a great opportunity for The Gallery to continue to grow our Club and provides significant positive financial impact for the Club. With models now being framed and increased marketing efforts by Del Webb to draw interest, we want to dispel some of the rumors that are flying around regarding the agreement between The Gallery and Pulte Homes. • Pulte Homes is purchasing 170 Sports Club memberships from The Gallery over the next 3 years. These are full cash memberships and the dues will be billed back to Pulte Homes. While they may market to their prospective future residents that their home purchase “includes” access to The Gallery Sports Club, make no mistake, we are receiving cash for all memberships and all associated dues for those memberships. • In addition to the cash purchase of the memberships and dues, Pulte has committed to annual capital contribution that will allow us to continue to upgrade our facilities. • Pulte is buying the same “Sports Membership” that we offer to every membership prospect, there is no additional access to golf, special rates or discounted fees for Del Webb residents. With the prospect of 150+ new homes at Del Webb over the next 12-18 months (and upwards of 500 in the future) we are excited to have entered into this agreement with Pulte and look forward to attracting many of their residents to full Gallery membership in the years ahead. We realize the Sports Club is already a busy place during certain parts of the day but we are confident that Michael Hamilton and his team will continue to manage these challenges effectively. As the Club grows we will continue to explore opportunities to grow our facilities as well and look forward to the challenges that “too many” members may provide.
