2 July 2011

The spring and summer activity here at the Club has gotten off to an unusually rocky start this year with a mixed bag of weather. This has had a significant impact on rounds of golf played, and has limited the start of seasonal activities throughout the Club. Hopefully Mother Nature will be a little more cooperative later in July and throughout the rest of the summer season so that you can all enjoy the activities we have planned for you.

Kevin O’Laughlin, CCM Club Manager

Final plans are underway for our annual “MHCC Fireworks Party” on Friday, July 1st. Again this year we will have a designated area set up on the southwest end of the clubhouse that will be geared specifically for children ages 2-6 with pony rides, games inflatables and a dunk tank. We look forward to Zambelli providing another spectacular fireworks display. By the time you receive this issue of the Newsette you will only have a couple of days left to reserve your table. Don’t miss the best event of the season! Attention All Fireworks Party Attendees! All those attending the Fireworks Party are required to have a wristband to enter the property. This year when you arrive at MHCC you will need to check in at registration at the main entrance to pick up your wristbands. You and each of your guests must have a wristband on to eat, participate in activities, utilize bar services and to view the fireworks display. All staff, security personnel, and game attendants will be enforcing the wrist band policy again this year. Thank you for your cooperation in our efforts to be fair to everyone. It’s amazing how quickly the summer season passes by. Soon school will be back in session and Fall activities will begin. Then before we know it, the holiday season will be upon us. Although it may seem early, now is the time to book your family or company holiday event here at the club. Several prime dates are still available for your choosing. Please call Kelly in the Catering Office for availability. I would like to welcome those new members who have just joined us recently and hope that you are enjoying the facilities here at Meridian Hills. If you have not yet had an opportunity to schedule your new member orientation, contact Lisa Strachota our Director of Membership, or myself to schedule a time. This is a very informative opportunity to take a detailed tour and learn about all we do at Meridian Hills. As the Summer continues, please let us know if there is anything we can do to make your experience here at the Club more enjoyable. Enjoy the rest of the Summer! Kevin

Golf Update I would like to thank everyone for taking an interest in the golf hole assignments. I have noticed a definite improvement of ball marks being repaired and divots being replaced. Just please remember to push in towards the center of the ball mark with the tool and never pry up. I would also like to thank the membership for the divot patterns they are taking on the range tee. I see fewer and fewer patches being taken which is resulting in quicker recovery. On the golf course we have added a few new French drains to aid in drainage. You do get relief from these gravel trenches when it interferes with your stance or lie with no penalty. Over time they will grow closed and be less unsightly. I have also added a yardage reflector on the hazard stake on the left pond on nine. Now you can shoot the closest hazard stake on the tee end of the fairway to find your yardage to the water hazards on holes four and nine. As always please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or just wave me down on the course. I am hoping the weather changes soon to something more conducive for golf.

Jim Hess Golf Course Superintendent
