President’s Letter It is hard to believe that the summer is almost over, although the break in the summer heat is a welcome one. As our Championship month comes to a close, I want to congratulate all the winners, with special congratulations to Will Shannahan on winning his 21st Men’s Club Championship and Mary Newcomb on winning her 9th Ladies’ Club Championship. Thank you to all that participated. I know we all want to win, but it is the spirit of the game that is most important. With the exception of a couple of greens, the golf course has held up well during the extreme heat in late July and early August. The decline in the turf conditions on these greens was at first thought to be from a soil born disease, but after soil tests and the testing of our irrigation water, it was found that the pH level of the irrigation water was too high for the optimal growing conditions of our greens. High pH levels, combined with extreme heat, made for poor survival rates for our greens. The reason for the high pH levels is basically the lack of rain. When Mother Nature provides us with a shower once a week the natural rain water helps to regulate the pH within our irrigation ponds, but this does not mean we will be held hostage. Everyone should hope this “perfect” weather scenario does not happen again. Guy is looking into systems that treat our irrigation water to insure the quality is suitable for our course. On a side note, I was speaking with a local greenhouse operation in the area who had just installed a system much like the one Guy is researching because of the same problem. Even though summer is coming to an end, there are still great events taking place at TCC, such as the Member/ Pal Breakfast Tournament on September 3rd and the Labor Day Pool party starting at noon on the 5th. Join us for Guys & Gals on September 11th, the scratch four ball on the 17th, the 9-TWGA Member/Guest on the 14th and the 18-TWGA Member/Guest on September 22nd. Finally, a Nine and Dine is planned for the 23rd, just as you thought summer was coming to an end. As we are in the last quarter of the Club’s fiscal year, we continue to remain slightly ahead of plan. Thank you to Mr. Wyles and all the Department Heads for doing a great job of controlling costs and our membership committee for bringing in new members to Talbot Country Club. Jerry Wilcoxon will be sending out a financial summary to the membership in September. Although we are still weathering the storm during this economic down turn, we continue to need every member’s help in finding new members for TCC. We have openings in all categories and some great incentives in place. If you have any questions about proposing new members or have an idea on how we could attract new members, please speak with Mr. Wyles. Also, I would like to provide you a quick update on Guy Ostrander’s back surgery last month. It appears the surgery was a success, although Guy has some recovery time before he is 100%. I want to wish him a speedy recovery. I would also like to thank the entire staff at TCC for the wonderful service they provide. One of our major selling points to a new member is the staff at TCC, so if you have an extra minute when you are at TCC, pull one of the staff members aside and thank them for all that they do. As always, please use the newly updated website for TCC at www.talbotcc.com for the most up to date information about TCC. Butch Townsend President

Golf Committee Congratulations to our new Club Champions: Will Shannahan and Mary Newcomb. Congratulations also to the runners-up, Steve Ford and Kelly McDonald Putnam. Marc and his crew ran a great tournament and it was thrilling to watch our junior golfers participate. Let's continue our support for them and our junior program. This July and August, the extreme temperatures have stressed the golf course. The grounds crew is doing everything in their power to keep the course and especially the greens alive and well. PLEASE do your part and sand your DIVOTS on the tee boxes and, more importantly, fix your BALL MARKS. The greens are extremely soft, so if you are lucky enough to land on the green, go find your ball mark and repair it and any others you see. Playing in the Wednesday Night League, the greens looked like a war zone! Patriot Golf Day is over the Labor Day Holiday and Marc is taking donations in the Pro Shop. The funds are used to support the families of deceased and disabled war veterans. Your donation can be charged to your club account The Tartan Classic is just around the corner, so make sure you have signed up. It's truly one of the great events at TCC. Another big event is the One Day Men's Member/Guest on Saturday, October 1st. This year it will consist of breakfast at 8:30 a.m., shotgun start at 9:30 a.m., with lunch and awards after the round. You can bring one guest for $100 or 3 for $200, with all food, golf and cart included. This is a great time to play before course aeration on Oct 3rd. Finally, it is with great joy and a measure of sadness that we announce that Nick Dwyer will be leaving TCC. The joy is that he will be accepting a First Assistant Professional position in Bonita Springs, Florida. Sorry to see you go, Nick, but congratulations on this new opportunity in your life. Nick and his fiancĂŠe, Mary, will be married on September 24th, so this will be a momentous year for Nick. A special get well goes out to Guy Ostrander following his surgery. He is home and recovering. God speed, Guy! As always, please contact a member of the golf committee with any suggestion to make the golfing experience better at our club. The suggestion box is by Marian's desk, so feel free to use it as well for any club suggestions. Rick Heaton and Karl Knade Co-Chairs

Pool and Tennis Committee It is this time each summer that I begin to wonder what I am going to do to entertain our children after Labor Day. Spending time at the pool is such a big part of our summer. I want to thank the lifeguards, the snack bar staff and the camp counselors for all of their efforts to make going to the pool an all-around fantastic experience. Chris has provided details in his Voice article about the Labor Day pool party and the Triathlon. Please make sure you join us for those fun events. Our final scheduled tennis mixer is on Friday, September 2nd. The tennis at the club this summer has been excellent. Participants have learned so much from Dave Marshall. He has brought new drills and fresh coaching ideas and he has improved our games greatly. Please make sure that you check the lost and found before the season ends. The big blue bin is full of so many towels, shoes and clothes. There must be things in there from out of town campers because some things have been in there for weeks! Ask your family if they are missing anything! Thank you for another great summer. Julie O’Donnell Chair

From the General Manager Talbot Country Club continues to “buzz” with activity and the summer months are wrapping up. The weather has begun to cool down and the Eastern Shore will show its September beauty once again. The Club Championships have generated tons of interest. Thank you to those who have participated as a player or a spectator. I have personally been able to watch a few holes of the matches and have thoroughly enjoyed the camaraderie and great golf. The 2011 tennis program has made incredible strides over years past. Thanks to Dave Marshall and a team of instructors, members have enjoyed the new activities that the Club has offered. It has been so nice to ride down Country Club Drive and see the courts flooded with ground strokes and overhead serves. As we wind down the summer, please look for some fall activities on the courts. More details to come. It is not too late to sign up for Labor Day events. Come celebrate another great pool season on Monday, September 5th. Activities include a great waterslide, games for the kids and a snow cone machine. The party begins at 12:00 Noon. There will be specials from the Pool Snack Bar and a full bar set up. LIVE ENTERTAINMENT with Charlie Hannagan from 12:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Please make reservations at the pool or at the Club’s front desk. The Talbot Country Club Sprint Triathlon in its first year, has generated many participants. I am looking forward to seeing our athletes test their endurance individually and as a team. Stop by the Club to see the event line and enjoy a bloody mary as members cross the finish line. The Tartan Classic is always a fun day of Scottish tradition. Please come enjoy the bagpipers as they lead the golfers onto the course. If you are not playing in the event, but want to come to dinner, please call the front desk to reserve a spot. Lunch will be served on Monday, September 5th. The TCC Fishing Derby is BACK! On Saturday, October 1st at 4:30 p.m. bring your rod to the pond by the second hole and enjoy an afternoon of fishing and fun. Upon arrival, fishermen and fisherwomen will be divided into age groups to see who can catch the most fish. After the fishing derby, around 6:00 p.m., we will have a BBQ Picnic and Awards Ceremony on the deck at the clubhouse. Beverages will be provided at the pond. Please make reservations with the Club’s front desk. Rods will be provided for those who need them. Last year there were almost 100 fish caught in a one hour period! $10.00++ per person The golf course is always in fantastic shape during the month of September. Guy Ostrander, Matthew Rich, Mark Tucker, Sonny Maddox and the Greens and Grounds Crew have done a wonderful job fighting a brutally hot summer to keep TCC in strong condition. The Grounds Crew has worked many long days during the heat wave and I hope you have the opportunity to thank them when you see them on the golf course. The Staff Appreciation Lunch and Golf Outing was fun for everyone. Thank you to all the volunteers and players that came to the Club on Monday, August 8th. The staff cannot thank you enough for showing your gracious appreciation. We hope to host the event again next year! As the Department Heads and Managers have put together the budget for fiscal year 2012, a few goals have come to mind that I would like to bring to your attention. First, the Membership Committee has worked extremely hard to keep new members coming into the Club and retaining the members who have enjoyed the Club for so many years. That said, please encourage your friends and family members to join TCC. We have an attractive Legacy Program for family members as well as many incentives for you to bring in friends and associates. Please feel free to contact me if you want more details on these programs. I am happy to show prospective members around the Club. Continued on Page 5

Secondly, I want to remind all of you that outside events at the Club help generate revenue and exposes prospective members to TCC. We face some challenges in that we are unable to send our marketing pieces to nonmembers. Our membership is our most powerful marketing tool and I am appealing to you to help suggest Talbot Country Club to your friends and family as a venue for special events. A few examples of the types of functions that the Club hosts are: Weddings, Birthday Parties, Baby and Bridal Showers, Anniversary Parties, Class Reunions, Engagement Parties, Holiday Functions (Family and Business), Christenings and Business Meetings. Our member events come first; however, we have many open dates around the holidays and into next year. I greatly appreciate your help with these matters as it helps me and the management team to do our jobs to the best of our abilities. Thank you again for another great summer. I look forward to seeing you at the Club soon. Respectfully, Christopher S. Wyles General Manager

Notes from the Short Grass Marc Kimminau, PGA Professional The dogs days of summer are over and the cooler days of fall are upon us. Although at times the summer of 2011 was hot and humid, the golf course has been bustling. Even though football season is here, September is still the best month of the year to hit the links. We still have some exciting golf events remaining the rest of this year. August was our championship month. We had many exciting matches and the competition and camaraderie were second to none. We had junior golfers competing in both the Men’s and Women’s Championship and their display of honor and integrity were most impressive. Congratulations to Mary Newcomb for winning her 9th TCC Club Championship and to Will Shannahan for winning his 21st Club Championship over an amazing 6th decade. Peter Knade shot a one under par 71 in the second round to capture the Junior Club Championship. This year the Juniors played 36 holes over two days which added a lot of excitement. Congratulations to all of our Champions! 2011 Club Championship Results Men’s Club Champion – Will Shannahan Men’s Runner Up – Steve Ford

Greens and Grounds The persistent extremely hot, humid weather was very hard on the greens this summer, especially numbers seven and fourteen. The lack of significant rainfall resulted in increased salinity in the water used for irrigation. Moreover, these two greens specifically are in shaded areas where insufficient air circulation contributes to the stress upon them. To address the salinity problem, those greens received an application of gypsum (calcium sulfate) which is an effective desalinization agent, especially where there is clay soil. To increase air circulation, a limb-up program for the trees near these greens and a thinning of shrubbery behind number seven has begun. A preliminary aeration of the fourteenth green should help its recovery now that rainfall has resumed. In July, Mr. Stanley Zontek, Director of the USGA Mid-Atlantic Region Green Section, toured the golf course, paying special attention to the condition of the greens and we have now received his report. He made recommendations on specific chemical treatments of stressed greens and reinforced the importance of increasing air circulation around them. He also pointed out that the use of fans is helpful in areas of poor air circulation. The feasibility of installing fans is being studied. Mr. Zontek was impressed with the health and drainage of the ninth green following the installation of sand channel drainage last year and recommended that it be done on additional greens in the future. He was extremely impressed by the condition of the fifteenth fairway following drainage work and re-grassing earlier this year. Guy Ostrander may have been confined to his home for a few days following back surgery, but he never was out of touch with the condition of the golf course. The Assistant Superintendents, Matt West and Mark Tucker, conscientiously filled in for him on site and reported to him frequently. The course is truly in good hands. Jim Lewis, Co-Chair Andy Crouch, Co-Chair
