A Few Modifications Coming To The Admirals Cove Golf Courses!

The golf clubs at Admirals Cove are already considered to be some of the best the country has to offer. They have previously played host to a U.S Open Sectional qualifying event each and every year adding to its reputation as one of the best clubs in the area. However, for this quality to continue at the level members have come to expect the club has decided that a few changes are in order. Recently the Admirals Cove Golf Club announced in an email to its members that there would be some changes to the “in season” maintenance schedules and practices. The East Course and the Golf Village Courses on an alternating schedule will be closed in the mornings on Mondays. This is due to the fact that Monday is typically the slowest day of the week when it comes to golf play and it will allow the club to complete any of the necessary course maintenance with the least amount of impact on members. Here Is A List Of Some Additional Maintenance That Will Go Into Effect: Needle-tining The Greens – This will allow the grass on the greens to expel gases built up in the soil and replace it with oxygen. A green’s subsurface requires oxygen in order for the roots to breathe. Fertilizing The Tees, Greens, And Fairways – This is best done when there are no members on the golf course. Proper fertilization requires the use of water and it needs be allowed to absorb correctly before driven on by carts. Top Dressing The Greens With Sand – When you top-dress a wet course the sand can clump instead of settling to the bottom. With the course closed for the morning top dressing can occur later in the morning after it has dried correctly. Detail Work – Normally this would be done in the mist of play and could have an effect on members. With the course closed in the morning all the detail work...

Come Enjoy The Teddy Bear Picnic!

You are invited to come join the Town of Jupiter Recreation Department on Tuesday November the 18th for their first “Teddy Bear Picnic”. This fabulous picnic will be held at the Jupiter Community Center from 10:00am to 11:30am and it is billed to be an event not to miss. There will be lots of great family fun including singing, story time with Brenda Nickolaus, and even a wonderful teddy bear parade. Almost everyone knows that the iconic name for this children’s toy comes from the former United States President Theodore “Teddy” Roosevelt, but do you know the entire story. The name actually originated on a bear hunt where the president refused to shoot a bear that was tied to a tree. He believed it to be an unsportsmanlike action and ordered his people to put the bear out of its misery. After that a political cartoon decided to make light of the situation and chose to make the bear a great deal smaller and cuter with the title of “Teddy”. A toy builder then saw this cartoon and became motivated to create a little stuffed bear. He then got permission to use the name and put this plush toy in his window with the name “Teddy’s Bear” which later shortened to just “Teddy Bear”. The craze for stuffed bears started a long time ago and has stayed strong with it becoming the favorite toy for children all over the world. The retail sales for stuffed plush toys are now in excess of $1.6 billion dollars a year. This event is designed for kids five years of age and under and there is limited space so please pre-registration your little Teddy Bear fans as soon as you can. For further info on the Teddy Bear Picnic please call Summer Magun at (561) 741-2400. The Jupiter Florida area is a truly wonderful place to live, work, and play and it is sure to have the perfect home to satisfy all of...
