December 2023 Newsletter


Dear Members, In anticipation of the upcoming holidays, I want to provide a few reminders about the practice facilities, the golf courses, and club-owned golf cart use so that everyone can have a safe and enjoyable time. We receive many requests for additional golf carts for family use during the holidays. We strongly encourage members who would like additional golf carts to request them in advance. Additionally, there is a daily use fee for using a club-owned cart; please see Todd Kitchen, Director of Outside Operations, for all the details. As safety is always our top priority, only individuals with a valid driver’s license, whether privately owned or club-owned, can operate a golf cart, and as a reminder, all rules of the road must be followed. It’s always great to see all the kids and grandkids enthusiastic about golf, and we encourage them to play and practice as much as they want. However, as a friendly reminder, children under the age of 16 may only use the north end of the Driving Range, and they must be always accompanied by an adult. Furthermore, any guest using the South end of the Driving Range must be appropriately attired, which always means a collared shirt and golf shorts or slacks. Thank you to everyone participating in our Sixth annual Veteran’s Day golf event. We had 186 participants who donated $34,345, of which 100 percent of the donations will go to the West Palm Beach VA, suicide prevention program. Thank you again for your generosity. Over the past several months, the professional staff and I have worked with a new tee time platform called ForeTees. We are now at a point where we’re comfortable going live with the new system, and our target date to transition from Chelsea tee times to Foretees is December 18, 2023. We will send out additional information to members on how to make requests, how the lottery works, and how members can change a foursome or group after a tee sheet has been established. Stay tuned for more details... Lastly, several golf events will take place in December. The Ladies Eclectic Championship is on Tuesday, December 5, and Thursday, December 7. The second Nine, Wine, and Dine of the season will be on Friday, December 1. Jupiter Medical Center Day will be on Wednesday, December 13, and the Men’s President’s Cup will be on December 8 and 11. Online registration is currently open for all these, and additional details can be obtained in the golf shop if needed. We wish everyone a happy and healthy Holiday season. J.R.
