Did You Know By Maureen Schreiber, Director of Membership Dear members, For those of you who have been away, we want to welcome you back and hope your summer was a terrific one. We have all been busy planning a great season of events which are listed in the calendar booklet that was mailed to you. Watch for the club’s emails, website and flyers to receive updates on the club’s activities. I would like to remind all members about the recent Old Course incentives passed by the Board of Governors. Members who would like

to upgrade to the Old Course can use their unrealized equity rather than cash to pay for the equity difference and will pay Master dues for the remainder of this fiscal year. Half of the difference in dues, plus the Old Course assessments, would be billed the next fiscal year starting October 1, 2013 and then full Old Course dues would commence the following fiscal year starting October 1, 2014. Anyone who wishes to upgrade must do so by January 31, 2013 to take advantage of this incentive. After this date, anyone who upgrades would begin paying Old Course dues and assessments at the time of upgrade. If you have any questions regarding this or any of the recent membership changes, please feel free to call me at 561-241-6820 or Jean Ouellette at 561-241-6835.

Dear Member, Another month and another endeavor to update you on what is really happening at your Club. not pass this by, you might even find this column interesting and informative. How is construction going.....a topic we are all anxious to obtain information on. First let me state that every rumor you have heard or have been told is the gospel is most probably FALSE. Your pool deck and bistro is on schedule and on budget. Yup, it does look (as this is being written in mid October) that it will never be completed before Thanksgiving .....however, as of this writing, it will. Prior to the end of October the actual deck pavers will be installed. The Bistro kitchen will be receiving kitchen equipment soon, the pizza oven and grill exhaust and hood are already in, the pools are receiving their finishing touches and water will be in them the beginning of November. All of the furniture is on schedule for delivery the 2nd week of November and our design committee is ecstatic over the finishes and color choices. November 20-22 is our target date, who will be the first person down the water slide? The only request that the Board and Management have is that you remember that this is a new endeavor and we will be working hard training personnel and developing our menu for the first few weeks. We ask for your patience as all the kinks get worked out. The Fitness Center is also on schedule for opening prior to Christmas with the cooperation of our Fire Department in granting us a temporary certificate of occupancy. Since the rest of the building will not be completed, you will have to enter the fitness area from the rear of the building. Both locker rooms will open simultaneously with the fitness center as well as the bathroom facilities accessible from the tennis courts. You are going to love your new fitness area which is over 50% larger than your previous one with better shower and steam room

facilities in a more spacious area and equipment that will make you a lean, mean machine in no time if used regularly under a good program developed for you. Ahhh, now my favorite, your new spa, a facility you will brag about to your friends - offering the latest in massages and treatments that are new to South Florida that will take away the years with our advanced exfoliation treatments, oxygen enriching equipment that will make your skin vibrant, and an advanced massage table that I can’t even speak about. The nail salon, pedicure area, woman’s hair salon specializing in blowouts and men’s barbershop will be extraordinary as it adjoins your new Spa Cafe with fruit shakes, healthy salads and lots of finely brewed espressos, latte, etc. all in a casual, relaxing atmosphere. The new Tennis/ Fitness shop located off the new, expanded terrace will fill your every need for that outfit to make your play and exercise a little more special.......all opening prior to the end of January.


Tasting Italian Wines November 21 5:30 pm - $31

Yes, the metamorphosis of Broken Sound will be completed prior to the end of this January and it is our hope that all of our members utilize these facilities and enjoy every moment. Before closing I know that there is some confusion over your Club’s new upgrade program to the Old Course membership and the Club’s downgrade policies. We have tried to clarify it again on a separate insert in this newsletter. On behalf of your Board and management I would like to thank all of our members for their patience and understanding during this construction period. We know it is an imposition and are certain that it will all prove worthwhile. Additionally we would like to thank the residents of Laurel Pointe for the use of their pool facilities for our water aerobics program; it is sincerely appreciated. In closing I would like to say enjoy everything that your Club offers you and for our members who have not returned to your Broken Sound home, hurry on back, we miss you.

If you love music outdoors, this is for you

Have a great month! Best wishes, Ivan Snyder, President Board of Governors

Conference Recognizes Broken Sound’s Sustainability Efforts

The 2012 Corporate Recycling & Waste Conference in Orlando, Fla., has recognized Broken Sound Club for its sustainability accomplishments.

Broken Sound member and debate volunteer, is one of hundreds of people charged with checking credentials. Most of the campus is a secure area; only those with credentials or student IDs are allowed in.

The club was a finalist in the under $100 million category. Six companies were in the running as finalists, hoping to win the Green Corporate Citizen Award.

“Everyone has to have some kind of credential or pass or they’re not coming through here,” Drogowitz said. Bob Drogowitz spent the past week as a Security volunteer for the Presidential Debate at Lynn University. To be chosen, the background checks by the Secret Service were extensive. It turned out to be an extremely interesting experience. During dinner with long time friend and neighbor, Dr. Connie Siskowski (and their spouses), she mentioned they were looking for

Broken Sound Club Wins South County Golf League Championship Boca Raton, FL – Broken Sound Club, a Platinum Club of America, cheered their Men’s South County League team to victory at the 2012 Inter league Competition played at Glen Eagles Country Club.

over the past 5 years. Eighteen golf teams from the Palm Beach area represented their club, including: Aberdeen, Boca CC/Gleneagles, Boca Greens, Boca Lago, Boca Pointe, Boca West, Boca Woods, Delaire, The Fountains, Hunters Run, Indian Spring, Mizner, Polo, Stonebridge, Woodfield, and Wycliffe. The Broken Sound team concluded the summer season with back-to-back championships, including a record high of 10 wins, 1 loss, and 5 ties, defeating Delaire Country Club in the quarter-finals of the South County League, and Indian Spring Country Club in the semi-finals.

Some of the sustainability efforts made by Broken Sound include composting its restaurant food and golf course yard waste and installing solar collectors to produce hot water. More than 500,000 pounds of food waste and 1.2 million pounds of yard waste were reused on two golf courses in the first year of the club’s composting efforts. Organic waste reduced the need for chemical fertilizers that can leach out of the soil, and the compost holds in more moisture, meaning less irrigation.

MAINTENANCE Joseph Hubbard, CGCS CLUB COURSE We are adding new landscape plants and ideas to the course every year to see what works best for aesthetics and our ability to maintain them. The course is defined in the mow lines and should hold up visibly through the winter unless we get one of those seasons like a couple of years ago that basically shut us down to zero growth. Now that the drier weather (we hope) is coming up, we can begin addressing the depths and consistency of the bunkers.

MAINTENANCE Joseph Hubbard, CGCS OLD COURSE The revamped seashore Paspalum tees are opened now and getting some good reviews. We changed the tee tops to get more teeing space, level the surfaces of several that had unsettled over the years and to put a better tee surface for consistency. The greens are working their way back as we get some drier weather after the wet spring and summer. We have several check lists to hit each day when looking at the green surfaces and what is below. The list I look at when walking the greens:

1. Are they healthy? A healthy plant is the best line of defense against stress, expanded amounts of play, rolling and double cutting through a season. 2. Are they consistent? One of the hardest aspects of being a turf grass manager is to make sure you are within a few inches of speed throughout the 18-hole course plus the main putting green. Adjustments have to be made all the time in water and the amount of topdressing you put down on individual greens because every single one of them is different in location and micro environments 3. How is the playability as far as speed and ability for golfers to hold the greens fairly? There are several ways we can adjust speed with the very last resort adjusting height. To get an idea how short we mow the tifeagle greens at the Old Course, take a dime out and look at the thickness of it. That is the height we mow at and when we make an adjustment, it may be only a 2" to 4" change in speed but for the turf to have .020" more in leaf tissue can mean a tremendous difference in maintaining turf on the surface. We would like the balls to hit, hold on the proper shots without tearing out large gashes out of the surfaces. 4. The most important aspect for the golf course superintendent is the roots of the greens. The saying is, “as go the roots as go the greens. We test all the time for depth of roots and nutrients to encourage deeper rooting.

Golf Maintenance by Joseph Hubbard, CGCS

Donnie and Barbara Are Back Clinics starting October 23

Welcome everyone once again back to Broken Sound. By now most of our members are down here ready to start the new season with the opening tournaments slated for early November. The next couple of months we are hoping for warm sunny weather to strengthen the golf course after months of clouds and rains. In fact, as I am writing this newsletter we have already reached 90.0" of precipitation for 2012, which is a record. Those clouds and extensive rains created short roots on our turf, especially the greens so they are very susceptible to stress such as cold weather and more extended cloud cover. Golf is not played indoors nor in a vacuum so we have to address what “Mother Nature� hands us. We will do our best to keep the greens healthy and true throughout the season but at times it may call for us to use small solid tines and hydrojet aerification to help do this. These cultural practices will not interfere with the playability of the greens but on the contrary should help with it by stabilizing the roots and increase the speed.

Friday, December 7th @ 3:00pm

We will kick off the new season with a tennis round robin followed by a trophy presentation for the Club Champions from last year.

Ah...! The age-old question: when it comes to the serve, which is more important, power or placement placement? If you ask tennis players this question, the majority will tell you that using great power is most effective when serving. Hitting the ball with tremendous power is great, but you can’t ace your way to victory. Therefore, placement becomes the most significant factor for competitive players at all levels. Being able to place the ball just where you want it will allow you to execute an effective strategy. You will have the power to dictate where the ball will be returned in order to set you and your partner up for success. In addition, if you consider the depth of your serve, you can make it difficult for the returner to even get to the net. Whether you are serving to the opponent’s weakness or to a spot where your partner at the net can be ready to poach, knowing where you are going to serve will give you tremendous control in your game. Having the skill to place the serve will also allow you to play with greater confidence. There is nothing like stepping up to serve and placing the ball exactly where you want!

Wheaton Dismantles The Draw Congratulation to Greg Wheaton. He finished second in the Men’s 50 National Clay Court event, October 13th , Sarasota Fl. Unseeded Greg dismantled the draw beating the number 9, 8, 3 and 2 seeded players before losing in the finals to Rill Baxter. This was the first national event for Greg and hopefully not his last.

Manager’s Minute Anti-Aging Tips For Looking Younger Karen Wilson

Exercise daily if possible. Even a few minutes every day helps body cells metabolize oxygen intake more efficiently.

Eat lots of fruit and vegetables.

If possible, emphasize a plant-based diet with smaller portions of seafood or white meat. Periodically, refrain from eating meat for a week or two so your body can rest up from antibiotics and toxins in meat.

Hydration is very important.

Drink filtered or spring water. Body cells plumped up with water will make skin look smoother, firmer and more luminous and therefore look younger.

Have a facial at least once a month.

Collagen and elastin, two proteins that contribute to skin elasticity, capture water more easily with facials stimulating blood circulation while detoxifying metabolic wastes from the cellular intake of oxygen.

Be Happy. Happiness is an important quality in looking younger. Positive energy impacts body cells by lessening stress – while worries, self-doubt and suspicious energy make a person look older.

Men’s Executive Facial Microdermabrasion procedures are becoming increasingly popular with men. Unlike women, men pay less attention to their skin. Poor skin hygiene and skin damage from shaving leads to a buildup of dead cells on male skin, which makes it look tired and dull and also prone to premature aging and sun damage. The easiest solution to reverse the signs of aging is a Microdermabrasion combined with our latest technology in skin care to provide your skin with the latest anti-aging results. Try a 60-minute Executive facial to reveal a fresher healthier skin. 60-minute treatment $95, $160 value
