Mr and Mrs Asher, Vice President Joseph Biden and Mr and Mrs Tuck - Kiawah, S Carolina

The four Broken Sounders were playing golf on the Cassique Golf Course in Kiawah, South

Carolina when their caddie informed them that a twosome which included Vice President Joe

Biden wanted to play through. They of course allowed him to play through and said that Vice

President Biden was most gracious and friendly, introducing himself and his partner to each of

them and posing for a picture. They noted that the Vice President’s drive was considerably past

theirs as he continued down the fairway to hit his second shot. They also said he “was taller

than we thought and truly charming....sure made our day”

The Club

Presidents’s Message

Dear Member,

Most of our members are now back from their vacations and/or

stays at their summer residences. We have had a very successful

summer here at Broken Sound.

Member usage of our

facilities, especially in

the Food and

Beverage area, was

way above expectations. Work was

completed on both golf courses, new golf

carts have been received, new chairs were

placed at the tennis courts and new

bathrooms are under construction on the

club course. In addition, we have new

chairs for use at club shows and other

events. Shortly you will see a new awning

over the deck at the Centre Court Café.

The staff has also been hard at work on

new landscaping and I’m sure you will agree

that it is truly beautiful.

Our program for this season is filled with

wonderful events, both on and off

“campus”. We have started our second

season of 92nd Street “Y” simulcasts,

have cabaret shows scheduled here and

Broadway shows at the Broward Center.

And don’t forget our wine tastings. Space

at these events is limited so that everyone

there can fully enjoy the evening and they

are always a sellout, so make your

reservations early. Also, this year you won’t

want to miss a new event, our spectacular

San Gennaro Festival on Saturday, February

27 th at the Fitness parking lot.

I’d like to devote the rest of this space to

the topic that’s #1 on many members’

minds and certainly #1 on the Broken

Sound rumor mill, the proposed Long

Range Planning renovation. Over 2 years

ago the Board of Governors asked Mr.

Crean to come up with a list of infrastructure

needs for the next 10 years, needs that

would have to be addressed if we are to

remain the premier club we have all come

to enjoy and expect. The Board then took

this list and ranked the items according to

priorities based on our club’s needs. We

further broke it into 3 phases to cover the

10 year period.

The plan was to bring Phase I, our most

pressing needs, to the members for a vote

one year ago. Because of the changes in

the economy at that time, we made the

decision to delay the presentation.

Unfortunately we can no longer delay. The

clubhouse is showing serious signs of wear

and tear, consistent with its age and the

heavy usage it receives. We must either

renovate or, at a minimum, refurbish, with

the knowledge that half of what we spend

on refurbishing will be unusable when we

eventually renovate.

www.brokensoundclub.org

Our parking situation is intolerable in season.

For the convenience and safety of our

members this must be corrected. I

know that there are rumors that we are

planning to build a parking garage, either

above or below ground. Neither of these

rumors is true. We have found a way to

add the additional parking needed by

modifying the existing parking lot.

We recognize that there are still concerns

over the economy and the Board shares

those concerns. However, the time will never

be better for getting low pricing for

construction and a low interest rate for the

necessary loan to finance the construction.

Our construction company (Weitz)

estimates that this project will cost $3

million more in 3 years and $5 million more

in 5 years. And who knows what interest

rates will be in 3 to 5 years? In addition, in

the coming years we will have up to 175

more members from the sale of homes

without memberships and Broken Sound will

have to have the facilities to accommodate

them.

We are planning to start a series of member

informational meetings where our architect

and interior designer will present the

proposed plans along with their monthly cost

to each member. While we are planning

these meetings to take place during the first

two weeks in November, it may be

necessary at the last minute to delay them.

We are still negotiating with our bank and

others to get the best possible rate and

terms for the loans to fund this project,

and rushing this process could result in our

getting less than the best possible deal.

When we do hold the meetings they will be

2 hour meetings with the presentation

lasting one hour and one hour for questions

about the proposal or suggestions on how

to improve the plans. The meetings will be

small so that everyone can have a chance

to ask questions or make suggestions. They

are designed to answer your questions, not

to be a debate on the pros or cons of the

proposal. You will do that with your vote.

Shortly after the member meetings we will

hold a general membership meeting where

the final plans will be presented and an

informational brochure distributed. At that

time you will also receive a ballot to vote on

the proposal.

Sincerely,

Don Schaevitz, President

Board of Governors

Club Course News

Welcome Back Golfers! The staff and I are excited about the upcoming season at

Broken Sound.

There is a saying “the

way of the future”. It is

no longer the “way of the

future” the future is

today. Beginning with

signing up for any

tournament whether it is

ladies, men’s or couples

is done via the Chelsea Tee Time System

either using the internet or their dedicated

phone line. The Pro Shop has all the details

available for you to ensure a smooth

process. You may also find the directions

on the Club Course Website. If you still have

questions or difficulties the pro shop will

assist you in the men’s or ladies locker

rooms on the respective computers and

show you how easy it actually is. Please do

not hesitate to ask any of the pro shop

staff for assistance. The only caveat is the

pro shop will not be able to sign you up

Guaranteed

Lesson Academy

from the terminals behind the counter.

Cell phones are the primary mode of

communication and we are requiring each

group to have at least one person in the

party to have a cell phone available. This

will allow you to call 911 or directly to the

golf shop and save valuable time in a life

threatening situation. Also, please keep in

mind that there are only two persons

permitted in any one golf cart at any given

time. The holidays are coming soon and it

is unsafe to have your family members,

especially your grandchildren, to be either

on your lap or between two adults. Our

primary concern is that of your safety and

that of your family members. Additionally,

you are still required to check into the Golf

Shop before playing at the Broken Sound

Club Course and provide a slip to the starter.

Scott Feller, PGA Director of Golf

We are well into our season now with plenty of tournaments lined up by

the pro shops to keep the game fun and competitive while the weather

cools slightly to make everything more enjoyable for all of us. For the

handicap players, we ask you not to cut across any ropes or signs around

the greens. To get to the designated parking markers around the greens,

please use the cart path to go past the green and then up to the markers.

This will preserve the quality of the turf and aesthetics around the greens.

All par 3’s on both courses are limited to the cart paths only with the

exception of #12 at the Old Course for handicap players only. (continued on page 8)

It‘s November and that means that the Guaranteed Lesson Academy is

beginning. We are very happy to see that there are many returning

students. Just because November is here does not mean that you cannot

participate in the academy. You may begin in December or January and

receive a pro-rated price. Although, the academy may be filled and this

may not be available. If you are not familiar with how the academy works

you are guaranteed one lesson per week and one nine hole playing

assessment once a month. Additionally, there will be afternoon clinics

and evening seminars throughout the season.

Joe Hubbard, CGCS

The compliments continued this past

summer as the conditions improved with our

keeping the fairway heights up in the heat to

build up a stronger mat to handle the cart

traffic this winter and the greens remained

consistently fast. The projects completed

this summer included:

Added new white tee on hole #14 for a

different angle of the hole.

The revamping of the entire catch area and

mounding behind #14 green, noted as one

of the toughest complexes to hold a quality

shot on the course. Architect Gene Bates

and our maintenance crew did the work in a

three day period from start to finish in an

effective show of planning and cooperation.

The next big project was the redesign and

expansion of the rear driving range tee to

alleviate overcrowding during large

tournaments such as any member guests

and to increase the teaching area for all the

professionals. As with the main driving range

tee, it was also completed with seashore

paspalum however we also added a nice

bunker for longer shots as experienced out

on the golf course. Even John Skaf got in

on the shaping of the tees for his first

bulldozer experience. Costs were kept to a

minimum using two of Gene Bates shapers

and our maintenance crew for sod

installation.

A small project completed on the front

greenside bunker on hole #16, is basically

an experiment where we are looking for

everyone’s input to let us know if they like

the work done and how the hazard plays

for all handicaps. A fabric was installed

below the face and within the bunker along

with new angular sand. Let the pro shop,

the Green Committee or myself know of

your approval or disapproval of the playability

of this bunker.

Jeff Waber and Juan Pino collected over $2,400

Club Course

On the Club Course, we did the following:

An artificial tee-line was installed on the main driving range tee to alleviate some of the

tremendous wear we receive from the high amounts of golfers hitting practice balls and

lessons. It was also felt that during outside tournaments and in the wet periods of the

summer the tee-line could be used to protect the turf allowing it to heal more completely in

the rotations.

Around the main tee, new paver stairs were installed,

taking out the worn wood that periodically had to be

painted and replaced. The overall look and quality of

work done by Broken Sound’s Facility Maintenance

team is very evident and has made a great

improvement.

At the chipping green area, it was decided to cover

the poor soil in front of the green and replace it with

a better quality medium while also elevating the

approach to give it the feel of more of the greens on

the course. We used seashore paspalum turf to

handle the wear and because this area is also shaded

in the morning light.

The drainage in the fairway bunker on the right side of

hole #13 was taken out and totally replaced. We

tied it into the catch basin in front of the bunker so

the water that always pooled in the bunker will be no

more after rain showers. We also installed a large

drain from the path by the ladies tees on hole #16 to

the lake while also putting in several drain fingers to

dry up that entire area.

Everyone is talking about the change around the rear

and entrance to #18 green as Mr. Crean has come

up with an impressive array of mixed colors, native

plantings and designs to step up the aesthetics of

the finishing hole. After a day of playing our wonderful

course, it will leave the players with a positive memory

of their round.

As we have had shade problems with the small

practice green at the starter shed, we flipped the

seashore paspalum over to the more covered area

and put the tifeagle Bermuda on the far side in hopes

this will alleviate the turf from fading out a couple

times a year.

Many trees and several beds have been installed

throughout the course as we press ever forward to

making Broken Sound Club Course an “experience”

more than just a round of golf.

One last project is being accomplished by CMA at Broken Sound with our help from time to

time. That project is the restoration of the lake banks such as on hole #13. The hurricanes

and Florida weather had taken a huge toll on the quality and look of every bank. Erosion

control methods are being laid down, as well as soil pumped from the bottom of the lakes

and then sod installed along all the edges. This is not a quick fix by any means and will

require a few years to complete. We will keep the membership abreast of the schedules

online and in the newsletter.

Since we are in season we ask for your cooperation to rake all bunkers, repair your ball

marks on the greens, fill your divots in fairways and tees and pick up any ropes you may

need to take down for your shot. Please, obey all cart rules at all times, it is your course!

Master Of The Middle

When both of your

opponents are at the net,

don’t panic! Create

confusion for your

opposition and gain

control by hitting to the

biggest part of the

court, the middle.

Provided you keep the ball low when hitting

down the middle, hit it between the two players

and see how well they handle who takes the

ball. Keeping the ball low and down the middle

will also prevent your opponents from hitting

angle shots. (If you don’t keep the ball low you

had better get a helmet!)

Conversely, it is critical that you protect the

middle of your side of the court, preventing the

opposing team from their attempts at “mastering

the middle.” Both you and your partner have a

responsibility in protecting the middle section

of the court and should have a plan as to who

should take the ball and that is determined by

where the ball is being hit from.

Use this tip in your next match or social game

and see if you can be, “MASTER OF THE

MIDDLE”

Just A Reminder

We do require proper tennis attire at all times for

all tennis members and their guests. This means a

tennis skirt for the women and tennis shorts for

the men. Although Broken Sound and other tennis

related T-Shirts are acceptable collared shirts are

preferred. Please, no running shoes are permitted.

Thank you for your support regarding this issue. If

we can be of service to you in the pro shop, please

let us know.

Advice for the fall and winter season

With summer over, what steps can you

take to upgrade your skincare routine in

order to avoid dryness, sensitivity and

irritations?

Here are a few helpful tips to protect your

skin from this winter season.

1. Buy a creamier cleanser. I suggest

Pevonia’s hydrating cleanser and toner

because it has collagen, elastin and

hyaluronic acid.

2. Exfoliate once a week with a gentle

enzyme cream, followed by a hydrating

moisturizer.

3. Colder = Dryer … so Moisturize,

Moisturize, Moisturize

4. Additionally, add an aromatherapy face

massage oil once a week at night to nourish

your tired skin. Pevonia has 3 different oil

blends with a hazelnut and a vitamin E base.

Use it at night. It is like nutrition for your

skin and the aromas will help you sleep

better too!

The Easiest Exercise

Walking can add years to your life,

and it is much easier than other

forms of exercise.

You don’t need to wear special clothing or

use fancy equipment, just get back to the

basics!

*Walking conditions your heart and lungs

and improves your body’s ability to use

oxygen more efficiently.

*Fact, In one study, women who walked

briskly (3-4mph) at least 3 hours a week

cut their risk of heart attack and stroke by

more than half.

*Walking helps strengthen and condition

your leg muscles, which helps maintain your

endurance and balance over the years.

*Walking is considered a weight bearing

activity which research has shown to greatly

increase bone density thereby reducing the

risks of osteoporosis.

*Don’t forget it can be fun, especially with

good company or a pet.

*It can help relieve stress, and be a time

to escape your problems or time to collect

your thoughts.

Remember... Walking doesn’t only add

years to your life... but also life to your

years.

What if you could make a world of difference in

the lives of others with one simple act of kindness?

You can through the Jewish Federation of South

Palm Beach County. The Federation supports a

full range of critical and life enhancing programs

and services locally, in Israel and in 70 countries

worldwide. From feeding, rescuing and educating

people to helping them re-connect with their Jewish

heritage or receive proper medical care, Federation

supports the most worthwhile and respected

programs and services for Jews in need. (We have

received the coveted four star rating (highest rating)

from Charity Navigator for sound fiscal

management).

We have a wonderful,

educational and exciting

year planned as you can

see from our Calendar of

Events. We hope that you will join us and

help to make this our most successful

year ever.

The first program of our Lunch & Learn

Series on Friday, November 13 will take

you on an intriguing journey of Kabbalah

and Mysticism led by Lisa Crane. After

this stimulating discussion, join us for lunch

in the main dining room for great

conversation and delicious food. If you are

new to Broken Sound or Hadassah and

would like to learn more about the

Hadassah organization, we invite you to

sit with our Board members at a table we

have set aside for lunch. They will be happy

to answer all your questions.

December activities begin with a look at

the growing phenomenon of blended

families presented by Vivienne Steinhardt

as part of the Lunch & Learn Series on

Thursday, Dec. 3. On Monday evening,

December 7, FAU’s renowned professor

BOCA FRIENDS FOR

CANCER RESEARCH

and Middle East expert, Dr. Robert Rabil,

will mesmerize us with his timely insight into

Islam, Israel and the Middle East. And finally,

mark your calendar for our first Card Party

and Boutiques of the season on Thursday,

December 10, right in time for the holidays.

We hope that you will become an active

member of Broken Sound Hadassah this

year—whether you have an hour or many

hours, we would love to have you be part of

our TEAM. When you spend an afternoon

or evening at an Hadassah event to renew

acquaintances or hear a stimulating

discussion, you will be making a difference.

Your participation will be helping to find a

cure for the treatment or prevention of

diseases like breast cancer and macular

degeneration; providing new hope and

opportunity for impoverished Israeli children;

and helping to improve the environment. As

always, we thank you for your support.

We are looking forward to seeing you soon.
