General Manager's Message Dear Members, This summer will be full of excitement around the Club. June’s events will include our second Kid’s Culinary Camp (sorry even if some of us think we are still kids, but Chef James says you can’t play this time) along with the popular Lobster Night and Father’s Day Brunch. Please be reminded that dining hours are adjusted for the summer beginning June 1, the new hours are posted in this edition of the Oaklore as well as online. We are pleased to continue our regional partnerships with nine local clubs for your golfing experience through our reciprocal program. Please contact the Golf Pro Shop to arrange your visit to one of our partners. July starts off with a bang as we celebrate our traditional July 4th party. Please also mark your calendar for our Annual Summer Shutdown of the Clubhouse. For those of you who are new, we use this time to complete maintenance projects and undergo deep cleaning of the Clubhouse. In addition, we use this time to give our Clubhouse employees much needed time off during the Club’s slowest month, utilizing their vacation time. Thank you for your patience from August 13 – August 27, when the Clubhouse will be closed for this important annual maintenance regiment. It doesn’t seem like it has been a year since my June 2017 message reminded you to return your Casual and Outdoor Dining surveys. It was during the summer of last year that Global Golf Advisors tabulated the results and let us know your opinions. Data driven decisions then guided Club leadership to facilitate most of your wants and desires. As of this writing, the vote on the Casual Dining Enhancement Plan is in the hands of the Equity Members. Please be assured that no matter how the outcome, the staff and I are here to support your wishes, and to continue to provide a warm welcoming environment at your Club. While the days are long and the nights are cool, we’ll keep the AC on and food and music going. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Jeff

The Oaks Women’s Club

The President’s Corner Gratitude is defined as the quality being thankful, readiness to show appreciation for, and to return kindness. It is with gratitude that I thank outgoing president, Beth Gehring, for her leadership of the OWC. Beth’s qualities of organization, critical thinking, inclusiveness, and good cheer make her a natural leader. Thank you, Beth, for your service to the OWC!

Hilda Papastrat had a Mah Jongg after the Charleston. There were no other tiles exchanged. The Mah Jongg version of a hole-in-one!

It is with gratitude that I thank Scholarship Committee Chairwomen Robyn Citrin, and her committee Carol Keller, Sue Clack, Dayle Cianella, Marilyn Feldman, and Glynis Noyes for their dedication. The process of choosing the OWC scholarship recipients is not an easy task. Thank you, ladies, for your thoughtful service!

Mary Fitzpatrick and Gelsa Spinelli.

I am also grateful for long, slow summer days, good books, and a chaise on the beach! Best wishes,

Golf

From Tee to Green

Ladies and Gentlemen,

As you all know, we are in the midst of our summer schedule, which means we are currently utilizing just one course at a time. We understand that this is an inconvenience, yet one that allows for both courses to be in their best possible condition throughout the majority of the year. On June 8, 9, and 10, we will have the privilege of hosting the Inaugural Futures Championship. This will be the best juniors in the state of Florida ages 9-12. As we are beyond the end of the season, please be sure to double check your sweeps account. Any sweeps credit that you earned by April 30, needs to be used by June 30. If you are here, please come by the Golf Pro Shop to redeem those sweeps.If you’re not, please give us a call and we can help you make a purchase and hold it for you or put it into your locker. How’s your game? Since we are slower, perhaps this would be a good time to get with a professional and utilize the FlightScope. This helps us work on your swing, but more importantly, it gives us the information needed to play better golf by telling us how far the ball carries and how far it rolls. Obviously, this is very valuable information when you are trying to carry the water or a bunker on any given hole. Call the Golf Pro Shop if you are interested.  Finally, I would like to reiterate what a great season it was, and the golf staff is working to make the upcoming season even better. We finished up the season with our 2nd Annual Champions Dinner to honor all of our winners. Be sure to get into all the events next year so you can win an event and get a seat at the dinner next year.

Congratulations to Bruce Widas for his Hole-in-one.

Play well,

The Oaks Women’s Golf Association The 2017-2018 season ended with a bang! We had 100 ladies come out for the End of the Year Scrambles, and 107 for the Annual Election/Business Meeting/Luncheon. We had great weather to “play pick your own 4-some scrambles.” A great way to visit with our friends before we scatter for the summer. We also elected our new board for the 2018-2019 season. Kai Ward will be our new President, with Tami Blowers as our Vice President, Susan Tefft as our Secretary, and Anne Lockie-Meehan will continue as our Treasurer. They are all looking forward to serving the OWGA and continuing its primary purpose: To promote good fellowship and sportsmanship among the members of the OWGA and to encourage the active participation of its members in playing and enjoying golf by organizing events. We say a hearty thanks to Dee Blazo as our President and Bev Williams as our Secretary of the past two seasons. Both ladies have served on the OWGA Board for the past four years. Their time, efforts, and generosity are very much appreciated. Dee will continue to serve on this year’s board as advisor.

Past Year's Board: Kai Ward, Bev Williams, Shari Lindsey, Anne Lockie-Meehan, and Dee Blazo.

During our Business Meeting, the membership voted by a majority vote to lower our annual dues to $70. This happened with the understanding that members would pay for the tournaments they elect to play in where a meal(s) is associated with the tournament (i.e. Member/Member, Old Pal, etc.). Congratulation to our overall year Quota Point 18 hole winners first through third place in Flight 1 – Dee Blazo, Carol Kamerer, Mary Rivi, Flight 2-Gina Ford, Sally Schaffer, Jane Carlsen, Flight 3 – Barbara Slip, Aja Ohman, Anne Lockie-Meehan, Flight 4-Kathy Kucer, Frann Camp, Ellie Faber, and our 9 hole winners Donna Woltzen, Linda Turner, Jean Phillips. These ladies played at least three of the four Quota Point games during the year.

New OWGA Board: Kai Ward, Anne Lockie-Meehan, Susan Tefft, and Tami Blowers.

Our sincere gratitude to all the behind the scenes efforts extended to the OWGA this past year…The Golf Pro Shop staff, especially Tim Beckwith and Shari Lindsey; the Cart Barn staff, especially Fred DeMarco; Nick Kearns and his staff, Holly, Morgan, and their staffs; Chef James and his staff; Dorothy Van Fleet-Communications, Christine Cook-Accounting, GloriaLocker Room, Cindy Allcox-Birdies, Jane Eaton-Chip-ins, Bobbe Rowan-Sunshine Lady, Wilma McCarthy and Dot Pass-Thursday Golf, Wilma and Linda Turner- 9 Hole Reps and Gina Ford, Kit Casey, Nan Mattson, Kai Ward-Welcome Committee.

Golf

Tap-ins

This month’s Tap-in is going to discuss how to properly put your ball back into play after finding it unplayable. Below is the rule and options for relief complete with pictures for reference. “The player may deem his/her ball unplayable at any place on the course, except when the ball is in a water hazard. The player is the sole judge as to whether his/her ball is unplayable.” If the player deems the ball to be unplayable, he/she must, under penalty of one stroke: • Play a ball under stroke and distance as close as possible at the spot from which the original ball was last played. • Drop a ball behind the point where the ball lay, keeping that point directly between the hole and the spot on which the ball is dropped, with no limit to how far behind that point the ball may be dropped.

Girlfriend Golf

Girlfriend Golf is a very loosely formed gathering, welcoming all golfing ladies every Wednesday to play nine holes of golf without the constraints of the generally accepted USGA rules. Explaining, complaining, and apologizing about your golf game are forbidden. That does sound like a rule, however, it creates the safety needed to get comfortable with your game, and it creates a chance to get to know others. The number of golfing girlfriends varies weekly and seasonally, from four to forty. Girlfriend Golf starts with an exchange of welcoming smiles between cart buddies as we gather at 3:00 p.m. There are no competitions (other than that which you create for yourself). There is little notice of your game, unless you are “in the zone” in which case everyone cheers. Girlfriend Golfers play year-round, and the energy is always inclusive and fun-loving. Sign up on ForeTees or call the Golf Pro Shop when you can join us. Cheers to having Girlfriends,

Linda Turner

• Drop a ball within two clublengths of the spot where the ball lay, but not nearer the hole. For more information on this “Tap-in” or if you have suggestions for a future “Tap-in,” please contact the professional staff or send Matthew an email at mpivko@theoaksclub.com.

Food and Beverage Taking the Back Room Outside

Independence day BBQ in the Clubhouse

With spring in the air, there was no better time for a pop-up bouquet dinner on the front lawn. A beautiful sunset and the gorgeous view of the Eagle 18 green, thirty Members were surprised with a steak house themed dinner. Chef James and his culinary team built a stage kitchen on the front lawn including a live plated area, table side featuring crab stuffed sautéed jumbo mushrooms, Caesar salad, and steaks over an oak burning grill. Saving the best for last, a banana fosters table side. Delivering this culinary delight with Holly’s passionate service staff made this all possible. You never know what Chef James has in store for the back room, keep look out for the next one!.

Tennis

Pro From the Net Tennis Shop News

We are wrapping up some exciting championship play here at the end of May. In the first of two wild card events, North Western’s Brianna Crowley defeated Member Sophia Edwards. In wild card 2, Assistant Pro Brittany Lashway defeated The Oaks Club Junior Program Member Nikki Yanez in three tough sets. Both wild card winners receive wild cards into the qualifying rounds of our Pro Circuit Event later this month. In men’s club championship action, Dean Olinger outlasted Gustaf Bradshaw over three grueling sets to take home the title. The heat is on and we look forward to more great play through the summer months!

Tom Whitten

We are excited about the arrival of summer and hope to see you, your kids, and grandkids on the courts. We will offer three weeks of summer camp in June as well as three weeks in July. We have also added two afternoon sessions for those who need full day programming. See flyer for details. We will also hold the Junior Tennis Program Monday - Thursday (10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.) weekly throughout the summer, and those wishing to stay for lunch and swimming will be able to do so. Call the Tennis Pro Shop for details. The summer junior tennis hours begin Tuesday, May 29.  

Mark your calendars: • Firecracker Round Robin and Cookout, Wednesday, July 4 • Labor Day Round Robin and Cookout, Monday, September 3

The Oaks Men's Club

Just a reminder... The Clubhouse Annual Summer Maintenance Shutdown will be August 13 – August 27 We use this time to complete preventative maintenance projects and to undergo deep cleaning of the Clubhouse on an annual basis. In addition, we use this time to give many of our Clubhouse employees much needed time off to utilize their vacation time. We thank you for your patience when the Clubhouse will be closed for this important annual maintenance regiment. The Golf Pro Shop will be closed August 15 and 16 for painting. The courses, practice facility, and phones will be fully operational. Tennis and the WellFit Center will be open normal business hours.

What a season! Let’s review a few of the highlights. We kicked it off with an Irish Whiskey Welcome Back Dinner. Our OMC Luncheon speakers included Sheriff Tom Knight, Sarasota Chamber of Commerce CEO Kevin Cooper, our own Delilah Wallenda Troffer, and Phil Carson’s rock ‘n roll career. Our Annual Charity Dinner featuring The Ditchfield Family Singers was such a success that they’ve been invited back for our 4th Annual Charity Dinner this November 15. Many of us had an excellent evening at the Asolo with a wonderful tapas dinner and Evita! We’re planning on doing it again this December. Our OMC Bocce season hosted three events and returns November 1 with more of those sensational trophies. The Oaks Men’s Golf Association had another great season capped by the OMGA End of Season BBQ and Cocktail Party. The Lonely Hearts Club players enjoyed many evenings of camaraderie. Several of us enjoyed another Golf Croquet and Pub Night. The Kayak Eco Tour was enjoyed by all who experienced the bay from the water as well as cocktails and dinner. We all want to thank Ron Neri and David Keeley for their many years of service as Board members. Let’s welcome Don Berhang and Art Colamarino to our Board of Directors for the next season. Also, Chris Gangemi was elected as 1st VP and heir apparent to lead the OMC into the 2019-2020 season and beyond. Our donations for the year were a record high of $16,700 given to eight charitable causes. Our next meeting will be the 2018 Welcome Back Dinner and 25th Anniversary of the Oaks Men’s Club on November 8. Mention any ideas for future special events you think the OMC would enjoy to me or any of our board members. We’re always looking for events that will appeal to our members. THE OAKS MEN'S CLUB… PARTICIPATE AND ENJOY!

Green and Grounds

Around the Grounds

The summer maintenance processes are in full swing. The Eagle Course is currently healing from aeration that was completed to the greens, tees, fairways, and roughs. In addition to the yearly aeration process there has also been lake bank restoration on hole #9. This task has been completed by our in-house team at approximately a third of the cost that a contractor would charge. In addition to all those processes, we continue to wrestle with a pest on the Heron Course. Back in March, noticeable damage from a pest call a Bermudagrass mite became evident. A pest that has become more prevalent and is hard to identity, several control measures been utilized in hopes to reducing the population and allowing for a good, strong stand of turf. In consulting with the Florida USGA Agronomist on numerous occasions as well as contacting fellow Superintendents, an aggressive scalping of the rough and thorough clean-up is going to be a part of the first closure process. This is in an effort to cut and remove the portion of the plant material in which the mites are inhabiting. This will leave the rough brown for at least a week period as the turf regenerates and is treated preventively. Please subscribe to Green and Grounds blog with weekly course maintenance updates at www.theoaksclubgreenandgrounds.blogspot.com.

Croquet

Croquet News The Oaks Croquet Club (OCC) concluded the current season with its traditional year ending farewell dinner celebration, followed by its trip to the Gasparilla Inn for two very active days of fun and sport. The End of Season Dinner was highlighted by the announcement that the Golf Croquet Singles Tournament trophy would be named the “Fisher Trophy” after OCC long-time member Bob Fisher. As the elder statesman of the OCC, Bob has worked tirelessly to promote croquet at The Oaks Club, while at the same time demonstrating his excellent croquet skills on the court by winning title after title. Behind the scenes, Bob is the treasurer of the Croquet Board, the manager of our membership list, our “tax’ collector, and the leader of Thursday afternoon croquet. Congratulations to Bob on a very well-deserved honor! I would like to take this opportunity to thank the OCC Board members for their dedication and hard work in ensuring that this past season was the most successful season of croquet at The Oaks Club. The 2017-2018 Board members are: Joanne Beinner, Mike Bolton, Carl Calandra, Neil Comber, Bolton Drackett, Bob Fisher, and Susan Kretz. We are also delighted to announce the appointment of three new Board members to the OCC Board for the upcoming year. They are Glynis Noyes, Sue Lawrence, and Erik Nielsen. We are very fortunate to have such a committed group of men and women who are working together in providing the leadership necessary to promote the rapidly growing sport of croquet at The Oaks Club. Wishing all a happy and healthy summer.

WellFit Center News Flags, fireworks, and fun cookouts all symbolize the bravery and determination of our ancestors as they fought to secure our freedom and help our country to break free from tyrannical rule. With so much emphasis on breaking free, summer time is a good time to take a close look at where you are with your exercise and nutrition plans. How are you doing?  Are you pleased with your daily habits and progress?  Are you in a slump from which you need to break free? We are 5-6 months into the New Year—how are you doing with your New Year’s resolutions?  Daily life keeps us so busy that we can slowly lose motivation to work out and eat healthy food.  And it happens so gradually we hardly notice it.  Before we know it, we’re off track and old habits are slowly getting the upper hand. You know you are in a slump when you look back over the past few weeks and realize that you are not working out much (or your workouts are very low intensity), you are being a little more lax with what you eat, and worst of all, you feel discouraged. The further behind you get, the harder it is to revamp and start again. Break free If you are in a slump, this is a perfect time to break free.  The hardest part of breaking out of a slump is taking action, but once you get moving again and take some positive steps, you will quickly find your feet and resume your forward momentum to fitness and health.

• Decide on your July 4th eating plan. You will likely be in the presence of unhealthy holiday food.  What is your plan? One of the best things you can do to get back on track is draw a line in the sand and don’t step across it.  Make healthy choices tomorrow. Eat for energy and vitality.  Once you take the first step, the next will be easier, and the next even easier.  Declare independence from your slump, dust off those resolutions and make the second half of 2018 the best half! Best of Health,

Stephen Sefchick Director of Fitness
