The celebration for

the 5th anniversary of

the Fitness Center was a

very meaningful and fun

filled event.

Congratulations to Nancy Fletcher and the great staff for their

dedication and hard work. They make going to the fitness center

a pleasure rather than a chore.

We are so impressed with the variety of activities and

programs that are made available to us. Nancy is an excellent

instructor and creates an atmosphere of community within the

fitness center.

Thanks to all for the special day on Saturday and for

including food and money donations to the local food pantries.

Sincerely, Markie and Garry Lane

Hi Maria,

You've got to be real proud of the job that Cathy Sigl and

staff (Catrina, Shelly & Pat and Javier) did for us last night at

our annual Marine Corps birthday ball! The cooks, Adrianna

and Steve, did an exceptional job as well with our three different

food options and the timing was excellent as well!

And Tony Ortiz who is always there to make certain the

sound and video equipment is in good order and that we know

just how to use them!

Keep up the good work and we'll see you again next year at

our 238th birthday!!

Semper Fi,

Dave Glaysher, Chip Uhlemeyer & Carl Dean

Our recent Ryder Cup Awards Dinner was an enjoyable

evening and I keep getting positive responses from our

membership.

The planning, set-up, service and dinner could not have

gone better and I want to thank both Janet and Cathy for a job

well done. We send all our compliments to your Kitchen Staff

and servers and hope you will give them our appreciation for all

their efforts.

John Powell and his staff at were instrumental in making

the tournament a success.

John was there for us from start to finish and we want to

thank him for all his efforts. Along with John, we want to give

a special thanks to Ulrika and Andy for all their help and

support.

The Prestwich Men’s Golf Association would like to thank

the entire club and staff for their efforts in making our

Tournament a success.

Dear Maria,

I just wanted to say, “Thank You” To all who worked so

hard on the Ladies Member Guest. The days were fun filled,

golf courses in great condition, and food wonderful. Both clubs

out did themselves. Thanks to all members who made us guest

feel so welcome.

Sally Reelick, guest of Kathy Peters

Dear Janet,

Al and I can’t thank you enough for all the efforts you put

into making our fiftieth anniversary celebration a huge success.

You and the entire staff did a magnificent job. The food was

wonderful and the club never looked lovelier. I have received

numerous calls from friends and family saying it was the best

party they have ever been to.

Thank you,

Mary Lou & Al Bercarich

GREG BROUSSE

MANAGING DIRECTOR

As we enter the New Year the Club has a lots of

projects we are working on that we hope the membership

will enjoy.

We are currently in the process of upgrading the

landscaping at both Prestwick and Plantation Bay. Both

projects will be adding several beautiful trees, shrubs and

removing the older vegetation.

The Club has completed the demolition of the old

tennis building. In its place we will be irrigating and

sodding the area for future development. We will also be

renovating the main tennis court fences and surrounding

areas.

Throughout the year we will continue to have ongoing

projects that will enhance the Clubs and the Plantation

Bay community as a whole. Enjoy and have a Happy and

very Healthy New Year.

TIP FROM THE TOP

Putting Tips by Ulrika Smith

Putting accounts for nearly half of our strokes during

a round of golf. I am hoping that some of the following

tips may help you lower your scores.

1) Read your putt from two important locations

(directly behind the ball and the low side. Next

time you putt, start by looking at your line directly

behind the golf ball. This first view will hopefully

give you an idea of how the putt will break. Second,

find the low side (if you cannot tell by sight, use

your feet to feel where the high vs. the low point on

the green is located) to determine how much slope

you are dealing with.

2) Be very specific of where your putter face is aimed.

Pick a tiny spec or blade of grass no further than a

foot away from the golf ball to line your putter face

up with .

3) To acquire the smoothest roll possible, make sure

the pace of the stroke is even. Maintain the same

tempo on both short and long putts but adjust the

length of the stroke to roll the ball the desired

distance.

Good luck!

GATHERING OF THE CLANS ~

MEN’S MEMBER/MEMBER

Wednesday, February 27 – Saturday, March 2

CLUB DE BONMONT WOMEN’S

GOLF ASSOCIATION

We hope that everyone had a wonderful holiday

season, but now that the holidays are over, it’s time for

some great golf events. Our President’s Cup will be held

January 17 and January 24, followed by our League

Championship, February 21 and February 28. On March

14 we will have a Dog & Cat Fight, open to all men who

are golf members of Plantation Bay (whether or not they

belong to the Prestwick or CDB men’s league). It’ll be a

fun match-play tournament, and everyone will be asked to

bring a donation for our furry friends---dog or cat food,

toys, kitty litter, or old towels. The Member/Member

tournament rounds out the quarter with play on March 21

and March 28. This is always our biggest event and we

look forward to another great turnout.

Our WPC, Seagals and VIP teams have been

representing the CDBWGA and Plantation Bay well, and

we want to cheer them on as they continue to compete for

fun and glory!

Kathy Light, our resident USGA Rules Official, will

conduct a rules clinic after the first round of play in the

President’s Cup on January 17. Kathy always does a great

job of helping us play the game the way it should be played.

This is an event you don’t want to miss!

We have a great golf season ahead of us, so come join

us on Thursdays!

PRESTWICK WOMEN’S

GOLF ASSOCIATION

The Prestwick Women's Golf Association has a packed

Fall season coming up. It has been great to welcome back

our traveling members from their summer vacations and get

all of the golf events going in full swing. (No pun intended)

November tournaments include inviting CDB WGA

members for a FUN DAY on the 13th. Our

member/member tournament encourages ladies to choose a

partner within 12 strokes handicap to play 9 holes alternate

shot and 9 holes scramble on the first day, November 27th.

The following Tuesday we will play better ball of the

partners. December's main event is the Holiday Scramble

hosted by the Niners. Players will be member billed $300

each. New Years Day falls on a Tuesday, so for the first time

we will be offering our die hard golfers to play a Shamble

with a twist which we are calling Hangover Helper. The

last Tuesday in January is our Pauli Waddle Tournament

and Social which celebrates the league that our founder

Pauli began and honors her love of animals with fund

raising efforts being contributed to the Flagler Humane

Society. This will be a shotgun at 12:30, net best ball of the

foursome with the Pro Shop creating the pairings. The

tournament will be followed by hors d'oeuvres and cash bar.

We wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving and Joyous

Holiday Season

Fran Sampson, President

PLANTATION BAY NINERS

Happy New Year to everyone and we wish you a Happy

& Healthy 2013.

The last few months of 2012 have been very busy. Our

Hubby/Friend scramble was on November 1st. We had a

great crowd at CDB. First place winners were Sheila and

Brian Egan and Betty and Bob Rossi. Congratulations and

thanks to all the folks who came out and enjoyed the event.

We also raised some funds through our raffle to support the

Red Cross and their efforts to help those who were

impacted by Hurricane Sandy in the North East. We

extend a big thank you to Ulrika for her ongoing support

and Maria Kesselring and Bernice Stamford for putting it

all together.

Our Cookie Luncheon was held in December and the

dozens of cookies were given to St. Anne’s Pantry to

support the needy in Bunnell and Flagler counties. Thank

you to all the bakers. Linda Young and Katie Kuhn deserve

special recognition for once again organizing this wonderful

Holiday effort.

We are looking forward to a fun and busy winter with

our regular play on Tuesdays at Prestwick and Thursdays at

Club de Bonmont. On February 14th, we look forward to

the Coastal Niners Invitational at the The Grand Club.

On March 11th Palm Harbor will host the Coastal Niners

Invitational. We also have our Member Guest at Prestwick

on March 20th and our Member at CDB in April. We will

wrap up our season with our last away game on April 24th

at Hammock Dunes. Be sure to mark your calendars!

Please join us! We welcome new members and we now

have a recruitment chair, Maureen Ford. Come out for nine

holes with the Niners or just come to lunch to meet the

ladies and share in the fun. All levels of golfers, beginning,

intermediate and advanced are welcome. Please contact

Maureen or me for information.

PRESTWICK MEN’S

GOLF ASSOCIATION

Happy New Year to all our members and their families

and a special welcome to our new members.

We remember all those affected by hurricane Sandy last

October and wish all a speedy recovery from their loss.

We trust all have had a joyous holiday and look forward

to a mild winter with as little need for woolen hats and gloves,

as shadows grow shorter and we look forward to spring.

Get ready for some great away tournaments in 2013 as

well as our usual great special events. As always we look

forward to each Thursday with our diversified array of

competition to make play fun and interesting.

So, now that the snow birds are back, let’s all get together

and re-establish our friendships and support the club at the

same time. Of course, Free Beer Thursday will continue this

year on the third Thursday of every month.

Looking forward to seeing new and old members in 2013

and again to all a happy healthy New Year.

Turf Talk…

by Brad Tucker

Superintendent CDB

Now that winter is here and the golfing season is in full

swing, I cannot help to reflect upon the last three Florida

winters. Mother Nature has taught me that Florida winters

are basically unpredictable. The winter of 2010, we all

thought we were living in Chicago. The winter of 2011,

fairly normal. The winter of 2012, it felt like we were living

in the Keys. Well all of that aside, I will assume that this

winter will be a fairy normal one. This means we can expect

our usual 4 to 6 frost delays. I would like to take the

opportunity to actually explain why we can’t allow play on

the courses when there is frost.

How does frost damage turf? Its just partially frozen

water, we water the turf all the time. Grass plants, just like

all other living organisms, are made up of cells. For a

moment, imagine that plant cell as a balloon filled with

water. The balloon itself we will view as the cell wall. Just

inside the cell wall is the cell membrane. When frozen grass

plants are driven or walked on, the sharp edges of the ice

punctures the plant cell. This would be similar to sticking a

needle in the water balloon. Once this happens, the plant

cell looses pressure inside itself, and is no longer able to

function. The double edged sword for bermudagrass is that

the time of year that this occurs, the turf is least able to

recover. Long story short, when turf gets damaged due to

frost in the winter time, we can plan on that turf not

recovering for 2 to 3 months. My hope is that now members

understand why we have to hold up play.

In closing, thank you for your course care & enjoy the

2013 golf season.

generous and thoughtful residents!

Mark your calendars to participate in our

Annual Polar Bear Plunge

Saturday, January 5, 2013 at HIGH NOON!

Can there really be any advantages to “chillin’ your

bod” in cold water? Surprisingly, the answer is yes...

• Shocking the circulatory system can produce a warm

afterglow that increases circulation and heightens

awareness with high levels of adrenaline; with these

physical changes in the body, some experience a

spiritual and/or emotional reaction too.

• The drastic temperature change on the skin and the

subsequent shivering actually exercise shallow, subcutaneous

muscles, temporarily firming the skin.

• The fun and camaraderie in conjunction with the

increase in adrenaline, can lift a bout of mild

depression.

• You can check it off your bucket list and have fun—all

at the same time!

For the past several years, we have hosted a Polar Bear

Plunge at the fitness center as a fun, energizing event to

celebrate the New Year and mingle with friends. Some

years the water and the weather have been cold and others

times it has been warm and pleasant, but everyone always

has fun. All PB members are invited as either participants

or spectators, but participants get a “badge of honor” with

a special t-shirt designed for the occasion! Afterward,

everyone can enjoy libations, hot chocolate and snacks.

Please stop by the Center and sign up.

A new year typically finds us making New Year’s

Resolutions, but eating and/or lifestyle habits shouldn’t be

as fleeting as fashion trends. The truth be told, the greatest

weight loss strategies are those that can be permanently

adopted. So this year, instead of making drastic changes

that are difficult to maintain, how about trying small habit

changes that can create a positive result that lasts a

lifetime? Here are a few simple tricks to try (one or more

of) which can help get those extra pounds off from the

holidays and they’re easy enough to stick to forever:

Eat Breakfast - it will energize you for the day

80/20 Rule - Eat at least 80% of things that grow and

no more than 20% of things that walk

Think Before You Eat - Before you eat, ask yourself,

“Am I really hungry?”

Do NOT Skip Meals - it wreaks havoc on your

metabolism and often leads to over eating when you do eat

your next meal

Keep Fruit Handy – especially for that afternoon

craving of a snack, the natural sugar of fruit along with

other vitamins is better for you than candy, something

processed or salty and most likely, lower in calories.

Protein - After a sweet treat have a slice of turkey to

keep you from wanting more sweets.

Eat slowly - eat with your non-dominant hand it will

slow your eating and you’ll feel fuller, faster

Portion Control – weigh your food so you can learn

what truly is a portion; for example, most restaurants give

patrons 2-3 portions on a plate!

Get Plenty Of Rest – lack of sleep increases the

appetite hormone Ghrelin

Cut Sodium and Carbonation - put the soda down and

walk away, instead keep a pitcher full of water with

cucumbers in it; it’s refreshing, it looks pretty and feels like

a treat.

Store Leftovers First - Serve yourself and then

immediately pack the leftovers in containers and place in

the fridge.

Quick Walk - Take a 15-minute walk after each meal

to burn a quick 100 calories.

Finally, here are some power food pairings:

• apple slices with peanut butter

• berries with cottage cheese

• bell peppers and hummus

• broccoli and low-fat cheese

These combinations combine fiber and proteins to

produce a greater sense of fullness, nix carb cravings and

banish hunger!

Have a Healthy New Year!

DAVE’S TENNIS TIP

BRING POSITIVE ENERGY TO PLAY YOUR

BEST TENNIS

Here are three things to add something positive to your

match. 1.) Time your meal so you eat a moderate amount

of protein, carbs, and healthy omega-3 fats about 60 to 90

minutes before the match. Also, be sure to hydrate

thoroughly 2.) Get going in the warm up! Jog to pick up

balls after the rallies. Keep your heart rate up! Break a

sweat so your muscles are loose. Rafa Nadal is a great

example to watch. He brings great energy to the court for

every match! 3.) Keep that bounce in your step. Whether

you are changing sides or just going to pick up a ball,

keeping your head up and taking brisk steps show positive

body language and helps keep you focused on the task at

hand-winning the match! Good luck!

WINTER SPECIALS

3 & Me Clinic Special- This is a great way to improve your

game! First, it’s easier to get 3 players of similar ability

together. Second, it’s very economical because three

players split the cost. Finally, our Pro, Dave Brown, fills in

as a fourth for play and strategy. Sign up for 5 one hour

sessions for only $99.00. Can’t find three players? Ask Dave

to put together a group of like abilities. Call him at 386-
