COVER FROM THESTORY EDITOR

Summerfield Crossings Golf Club A Stroke Better Than The Rest

Summerfield Crossings Golf Club, located in Riverview, Florida, is owned and operated by the Blanchard family, specifically Jeffrey “Doc” Blanchard and his son Jason. Their backstory is as interesting as it gets.

Jason grew up in Rochester, New York where his father was a successful optometrist. After graduating from Boston University, Jason tried his hand at bond trading but eventually opted for a career in golf. He has been a PGA Professional since 1994. Meanwhile, Jason’s father retired in Tampa, Florida in 2000. At the time, GolfCoastMagazine.com

Jason was director of golf at Glen Eagles Golf Club in Del Ray Beach, on Florida’s east coast. In 2002, the elder Blanchard suggested – out of the blue – that the family buy a golf course. The rest is history. On February 28, 2003, the Blanchard family assumed ownership and operation of Summerfield Crossings Golf Club. With Doc working behind the scenes and Jason serving as general manager, Summerfield Crossings has carved out a hard-earned niche in the evervolatile golf business in Florida. “We’re the perfect blue collar golf course,”


COVER STORY

says Jason. “We’ve created a “Cheers” mentality where everyone feels at home, including our staff and customers.” The atmosphere may be relaxed but the facilities are all first class, beginning with the golf course. The par-71 championship course opened in 1987. Designed by renowned architect Ron Garl, the original concept was to create a links-style course. However, with the planting of over 1200 pine trees early in its history, the course has evolved into a combination of links-style and tree-lined holes. The course distinguishes itself with scenic, rolling terrain, numerous pot bunkers and small, undulating greens.

13

“Our design philosophy for Summerfield Crossings was to enhance and utilize the existing terrain – including the strategic location of bunkers to offer options and challenges for all levels of players as is found on many great courses in Scotland,” said Garl. You can play the course as hard or as easy as you want. At over 6900 yards from the tips, Summerfield Crossings will challenge even the most skilled players. The forward tees are friendlier to less accomplished players but still require plenty of demanding shots to score well. Hole number 15 – Summerfield

of the quality manufacturers from which to choose. Not sure which driver suits your game? Feel free to take advantage of their “try before you buy” demo clubs. They also have an on-site clubmaker to help you customize your clubs and elevate your game. Doc’s Grille – featuring casual dining in an appealing setting – has a full bar to satisfy both your food and refreshment needs. The grille is open Tuesday through Friday, 10:00am to 3:00pm; Saturdays from 6:30am to 2:30 pm; and a breakfast buffet with omelet and waffle stations Sundays from 9:00am to 1:00pm. There’s also Happy Hour every Friday night from 5:00pm to 9:00pm.

The short par-4 first hole is a birdie opportunity from the fairway.

Crossings’ Signature Hole – is a gutcheck par 3 featuring an island green reminiscent of the famed 17th hole at TPC Sawgrass, home of the PGA Tour’s Players Championship. Measuring anywhere from 138 to 171 yards, this short hole strikes fear into the hearts of the most accomplished players. Summerfield Crossings’ practice facilities are extensive, including a twotiered driving range, expansive putting green, chipping green and dedicated bunker area. There’s also a short shot area with targets in the 30 to 40 yard range, ideal for developing touch with your wedges. The clubhouse features a well-stocked pro shop and Doc’s Grille, a full-service restaurant that comfortably seats 160 people. The pro shop offers a variety of merchandise from top brands in golf equipment and apparel. Titleist, Cobra, Adidas and Ping are just a few GolfCoastMagazine.com

Summerfield Crossings is an ideal venue for tournaments, corporate outings, meetings and weddings. A variety of packages are available for groups of 8 to 144. Their professional staff will help with all the details. They have a wide range of services and partners to ensure your event is a grand success. As a semi-private facility, Summerfield welcomes daily fee play but also offers year-round and seasonal memberships for individuals, families and local businesses. Membership privileges

Saddlebrook Course

Saddlebrook Resort

In late 2014, Tom Dempsey, Saddlebrook’s owner, was very disappointed in the condition of his golf courses and new practice facility. He decided it was time to invest whatever it took to bring both golf courses and the new Saddlebrook Golf Academy Practice Facility up to International Standards. In early 2015, Chip Lewiston was hired as Golf Course Manager. Chip is very experienced at bringing distressed golf courses back to “International Standards”. He also has a true desire to help turn things around at Saddlebrook. Course conditions in 2015 were an issue not only to resort guests, but also to the Saddlebrook Golf Academy. To attract guests and especially golf students, the courses needed to be at the highest standards. Discussion, planning, and prioritizing between manager and owner developed an overall strategy. The goal was to vastly improve the two golf courses and practice facility and achieve exceptional conditioning throughout the year. Since the beginning of 2016, steady progress has been made. Improvements included the initiation of new cultural practices designed to GolfCoastMagazine.com

Palmer Course vastly improve greens quality and speed. Programs were also initiated to clean up broadleaf and grassy weeds. Hundreds of hours were devoted to training and development, resulting in an efficient and well-trained staff. Projects of all types have been implemented to improve the overall playability of the courses. Projects include greens reconstruction, tee leveling, drainage improvements, and much more. Improvement projects will be ongoing over the next few years. The results will provide a totally new look and character to the appearance and playability of the courses. The Saddlebrook managers and staff are proud of the work that has been done to date. They take great pride knowing it has been a tremendous team effort. It is their goal to make the Saddlebrook golf courses and practice facilities among the best in the world.

Jimmy Walters Holds Court At Steve’s World Of Golf Superstore In Hudson

Jimmy Walters is not your usual retail golf store manager. He started in the golf business back in the 80’s as an assistant pro, including several stints in the Tampa Bay area… Cypress Run, Cheval, Seven Hills and Spring Hill Golf Club. While at Cheval, Jimmy fitted then fourstar general Norman Swarzkopf with a set of clubs. In the mid-90’s he worked for Steve Pitts at the Steve’s World of Golf store formerly located in Port Richey. OK, that’s not so unusual. However, from 2001 through 2015, Jimmy was a full-time professional caddy honing his skills on the PGA, LPGA and Web.com Tours. Among his “loops” during those 15 years were John Huston, David Kirkpatrick, D.A. Points, Chad Collins, David Hern, Jeff Quinney, Cindy Rarick and Shanshan Feng. He had many successful partnerships. One of his best was with Jeff Quinney in early 2007. Their run included: a fourth at the Bob Hope Desert Classic, a seventh at Torrey Pines, a third in Scottsdale, a ninth at Riviera and a sixth at the Players Championship. That year was exceptionally

Summer 2017

rewarding for Jimmy financially as caddies are typically paid based on the success of their player. As Jimmy tells it, a good caddy wears many hats, including sports psychologist, fall guy, “yes man”, cheerleader and friend. “Where else can you hang out with the best golfers in the world and even shake hands with presidents”, said Jimmy. In 2016, Jimmy came back to Port Richey, Florida to take care of his aging parents. His father has since passed away but Jimmy still looks after his mother. Jimmy now holds court at the Steve’s World of Golf Superstore in Hudson. His knowledge of golf equipment, from drivers to golf balls, is unsurpassed. If you need advice regarding your game or your equipment, Jimmy is the man to see. The Superstore is located at 12647 US Highway 19 North, Hudson, Florida 34667, across the street from the Hudson Walmart SuperCenter. For more information, call (727) 378-4999.

The Core: Your Body’s Transmission by Daniel Shipman Let’s make an analogy…your body is a vehicle. The glutes are the engine and the core is the transmission. If your transmission doesn’t work then the car doesn’t move. It doesn’t matter how much power the engine generates.You can’t move without the transmission. What is the main function of the core? Dr. Stuart McGill states that “The core musculature functions differently than the limb musculature in that core muscles often co-contract, stiffening the torso such that all muscles become synergists.” What does that mean? The core

functions to stop movement, mainly pertaining to the spine. The core also functions to transfer force from the lower limbs to the upper limbs and vice versa, which is of great importance to golfers. If your core is stable, the power generated from your lower body can move smoothly up to you torso and down GolfCoastMagazine.com

through your arms and out to the club. A weak core means some of that power “leaks” out because the core can’t handle the power that is generated. And in some cases a weak core that is trying to take on too much power can end up becoming an injury. Where do we go from here? There is a lot of research out there about how the core works and how the body uses it. We need to train it in that way. The Plank is a great example of an exercise that when done correctly can elicit the action we desire by the core, anti-extension. A Pallof Press is a great example of a core exercise that is anti-rotation. Remember the core isn’t just the abdominals, it’s every muscle from the diaphragm to the pelvic floor. They are all involved in the core in some way. Make sure to train them all. If you start training the core properly you’ll see a big return in your golf game and a decrease in the pain you feel out on the course.

The 2017 New Year presented the grand opening of Lakewood Ranch’s newest 36hole Championship Course, Lakewood National Golf Club, a masterpiece of the Arnold Palmer Design Company.

Accordingly, the architecture embodies the spirit and tradition of America’s classic golf courses while exhibiting a contemporary interpretation to their enduring standard.

Not your typical executive golf course, Oyster Creek, designed by Ted McAnlis, is both challenging and scenic. Accuracy off the tee is important as water comes into play on 13 of the 18 holes. Distance is critical on only a few of the par 4s, but even low-handicap golfers find they play to their handicap. Oyster Creek offers meticulouslymanicured greens surrounded by environmentally-protected natural wetlands. 6651 Oriole Blvd. Englewood, FL 34224 941-475-0334 www.oystercreekgolfclub.com

REVIEW

Quail Creek Country Club to Host the 31st U.S. Women’s MidAmateur Championship The First Ever USGA Event Held in Collier County October 7 – 12, 2017 In the early ‘80’s, Quail Creek Country Club (QCCC) became one of the first clubs in the Naples area to offer a full country club atmosphere, including 36 holes of golf. Now, Quail Creek will be the first country club in Collier County to host a United States Golf ANow, QCCC will be the first country club in Collier County to host a United States Golf Association (USGA) championship, the 31st U.S. Women’s Mid-Amateur to be held October 7-12, 2017.

“We are so proud to host the first USGA championship event in Naples,” said Don Hunter, General Chairman. “On behalf of the membership of Quail Creek Country Club, we are honored to host the 31st U.S. Women’s Mid-Amateur Championship. Hosting this tournament at QCCC is a testament to the championship caliber of our Club and courses.” QCCC features two 18-hole courses, named Quail and Creek, that will be used for the strokeplay qualifying and the match-play portion of the championship. Both courses were designed in 1981 by Arthur Hills, who also renovated Oakmont, P.A. Country Club, host site of the 2016 U.S. Open. The courses were renovated in 2013 by Kevin F. Leo, QCCC’s Golf Course Superintendent, with Hills serving as a consultant. Renovations included an increase in playable native areas that has reduced the amount of water, fertilizer and maintenance required; the restoration of bermudagrass throughout the course; and the addition and restoration of bunkers. The club has hosted numerous state and regional events. Julia Potter is the defending champion and will be competing to win


REVIEW

her third title. “I love the women that play in this event and what this event stands for. It’s a lot of working women or mothers, that type of golfer. So, that always gets me pumped for it,” said Potter, Indianapolis, I.N. native. Potter has previously won both of her Women’s Mid-Amateurs on Ross classics – last year at The Kahkwa Club, in Eerie, P.A. and in 2013, it was at Biltmore Forest Country Club, in Asheville, N.C. Kim Benedict, of Bonita Springs, will also be competing. “I’m thrilled that QCCC is hosting the 2017 U.S. Women’s Mid-Amateur. It’s an excellent pairing of a great championship and QCCC’s great courses. I’ll be practicing hard to make sure I’m ready to compete in October,” said Benedict, 35, Gulf Coast High school golf coach and QCCC Member. “The facilities at QCCC, including the new Short Game Range, allow me to work on a multitude of shots, especially wedge and short game shots and I hope to take my game to the next level with continued focus in these areas,” said Benedict. Kim Benedict defeated defending champion Lauren Greenlief in the 2016 U.S. Women’s Mid-Amateur last September, before being eliminated in the 32nd round. All Photos Copyright USGA/Russell Kirk.

“The preparation process is going smoothly, from meeting with tournament chairs to evaluating the courses for hole placement to working with agronomists, we have been immersing ourselves in activities designed to ensure the best possible championship,” said Rachel Sidowski, Tournament Director. We’ve received a warm welcome and are very excited to bring the first of hopefully many USGA championships to Collier County.” You can learn more about Quail Creek Country Club at quailcreekcc.com.
