Hollywood Beach Golf Resort
2013 Club Championship
Congratulations to everyone!

The 2013 Club Championship was contested between 28 players beginning on Saturday Dec. 15th. The format for this years event was match play, using 75% of each players handicap, with the winner having to win a total of 5 matches to become the champion. The initial pairings were made via a blind draw of the entire field, with most of the players being very evenly matched. All of the matches were very close through 2 weekends of play and after 5 rounds of steady play Mr. Joe Cirincione defeated Mr. Kevin Dean in the Championship Match to become this years Club Champion. Along with bragging rights for the next year, Joe has the highly coveted parking space to pull into every time he comes to play! Congratulations go out to Joe and special thanks to all participants for their support of this year's event!

What's that noise coming  
out of that Tree?
If you have played Hollywood Beach Golf Resort recently, you may have heard a hooting sound emanating from the large Banyan Tree located between the 15th green and 16th tee.  The hooting obviously is coming from a large Owl who has taken up residence in the tree, a further testament to your Club being certified as a "Wildlife Habitat" by the National Wildlife Federation.  Next time you are playing and hear our owl resident, try to spot it in the tree.  It's not that easy!

Eco Golf Club
gets a cleaning for the winter

Jeff Sudden, Superintendent, and his crew have been busy implementing the winter trimming of the trees and ground clean-up at Eco Golf Club.  As Floridians know in the summer months rainy season allows vegetation to grow at a very fast pace. Once fall/winter begin that's the time to cut back, trim and clean meticulously.

The big notice is once you tee off on hole #2 and make your dog leg to the right you will take note the entire treeline has been cut back all along the canal leading to the green.  These trees had been encroaching the fairway.  Suckers have been trimmed off many trees through out the course to promote aesthetics.  Also in the scope of clearing over grown debris was to raise trees up low laying branches that were interfering with golfers.   Lastly, the crew used a chemical control method to roughs, greens and tee slopes to attempt to keep broadleaf weeds at a minimum resulting in better grass growth.

As soon as you pull into Eco Golf Club you will notice the refreshed look of new layers of red mulch which is just the beginning. We know you will have a pleasurable experience playing golf.

Golf Tip from PGA Director of Golf
Paul Steward

This month we are going to focus on the short game and the different types of shots we can hit from around the green. Being able to hit a chip shot that travels low and rolls towards the hole or the pitch shot higher in the air is critical to shooting lower scores. Too often I see players who routinely use the same club on every shot from around the green, not giving themselves any options. Most PGA tour pros carry anywhere from 3-5 wedges to give themselves plenty of choices from 100 yards in. Overall, though, the old rule of thumb is: Putt when you can, chip when you can't putt, and pitch when you have to. The basis for this philosophy is that it's easier to roll the ball than to loft it. Hitting the low, rolling chip shot it is much easier to control both the distance and direction the ball travels. The chip shot can be played with a variety of clubs including the 7,8,9 irons or your pitching wedge. If you don't need to hit the ball high because of an obstruction (bunker,water,foliage) or the pin cut close to  you, the chip shot makes the most sense. When you have to loft the ball because  of a bunker or a close flag stick, then the smart play is the pitch shot with your sand wedge or lob wedge. These clubs have the most loft to create the higher trajectory we need for this shot. The common mistake with the pitch shot is to lift with the arms trying to loft the ball into the air instead of staying low through the hitting area so the club travels under the ball. That lifting motion will also enable the club head to pass your hands at impact resulting in thin shots that don't elevate. Remember... don't help the ball into the air! Let the loft of the club do the work! I hope this month's tip helps you to play the right type of shot you need to get up and down. Good golfing to all!
