Good day and welcome to the month of May! Warm weather and sunshine are finally here!! Well, on their way at least?  I am sure the weather will continue to improve throughout the month as will course conditions and golf games. 

Speaking of improving, our team is continuously seeking new ways of improving your experience as members so please feel free to reach out with any ideas you might have!  Being a semi-private membership provides our members a rather unique opportunity to suggest member oriented events. Ideas presented thus far include Dinners on the patio, 4th of July Fireworks viewing, golf foursomes at local clubs, and a Par 3 shootout. The only thing limiting what we can do are a lack of imagination or unfortunately a lack of participation. As I stated in my previous email and newsletter, this year is all about recognizing opportunities so please take advantage of your opportunity to be heard. 






On behalf of our team here at Mansion Ridge I would like to extend a sincere thank you, well wishes, and a complimentary cart fee to Mother’s this Sunday May 14th. Thank you for all you have done and continue to do for your families all in the name of love!

For those who prefer a more spontaneous approach to celebrating the holiday (AKA “I kinda forgot”) We will be hosting Mother’s Day brunch with 4 separate seating’s beginning at 9:30 this Sunday.  If you are interested please contact Migel’s
Tavern at (845) 782-7888 Option 4 to make a reservation.



Golf

Callaway Demo Day!
This is your opportunity to get fit just as the pro’s do!   The custom-fitting experience includes recommendations for a driver, fairway woods, hybrids, irons, wedges, putter, and even the correct golf ball gathered from the collaborations of your swings. The industries best clubs and shafts are built on-site to your correct swing specifications and then tested and validated on the driving range.

Your fitting experience will include Trackman which is one of the leading golf radar tools in the industry.  The TrackMan numbers are the brain behind it all. All major stakeholders of the game, without exception, use and trust Trackman Numbers for two main reasons: precision and reliability.

It tracks the full trajectory of any shot, from 6 foot pitches to 400 yard drives, pinpointing the landing position with an accuracy of less than 1 foot at 100 yards. It also displays the shot’s 3D trajectory together with 26 impact and ball flight parameters in real time (data is delivered within 1 second).
Below are examples of the key club and ball definitions you can track with TrackMan.

SMASH FACTOR, SPIN RATE, LAUNCH ANGLE, CARRY, BALL SPEED, CLUB SPEED, DYNAMIC LOFT, ATTACK ANGLE, CLUB PATH and FACE ANGLE

To schedule your fitting appointment please contact Nick Schremser, PGA Head Golf Professional at nschremser@troon.com or 845.782.7888








Chef's Tip

“Did you know you can turn granulated sugar into powdered sugar? Just pour granulated sugar into a blender or food processor and blend until it’s pulverized”

Agronomy

April showers bring May flowers except in our case it will be E.P. Jansen Nursery in Florida, NY.  This month we will be continuing our daily maintenance tasks as well as beginning some course beautification projects including planting and mulching flower beds around the club house and Apple Blossom Café (“The ABC”), as well as adding a few new landscape plants to the front entrance.

There have and will continue to be several improvements taking place throughout the golf course this month including additional tree work on #17 Tee, cart path repair and additional bunker sand.  While not all changes around the course as easily identified as others, you may have noticed within the past 10 month we have added a total of 100 tons of new sand to the bunkers!  We will also be welcoming a few new additions in the month of May including some brand-new pieces of maintenance equipment.  While it might not be as easy to see the impact of the new equipment, the new equipment will allow for an increase in the quality and consistency of daily maintenance practices around the golf course.  The new pieces include…


TORO SANDPRO 2040Z


This piece of equipment can accommodate several different attachments that can be use from every day bunker maintenance to tee and green construction.  The addition of this piece aid us in our daily bunker maintenance practices by allowing us to transport between bunkers faster and make tighter turns while avoiding damaging the liner and edges of the bunker increasing efficiencies and allowing us to focus more time on non-hazard areas that that reward the golfer for a well hit shot.    

TORO GROUNDS MASTER 4300




This large area rough mower is the perfect fit for the course layout of Mansion Ridge.  It’s small compact design and weight distribution lend itself to being able to get into relatively small areas and step grades safely while maintaining a superior quality of cut.  It also has increased mowing and transport speeds that will lead to increased consistency and “quality of cut” in our rough areas.


TORO TRIFLEX 3300



This piece of equipment is a reel style mower that will be used for mowing our greens on a daily basis.  With increased transport and mowing speeds, 14 blade reels and floating head cutting units, once again we will receive an increase in consistency and efficiencies.
 

Please feel free to check out the new additions as the opportunity presents itself throughout the year!!

 

Thank you kindly for your attention and as always…please remember to fill your divots and fix your ball marks!
