Country Club Management Advisory Council Board

MESSAGE FROM CCMAC CHAIRMAN

To All Members And Village Residents,

The 2018 golf and tennis season is fast approaching. I am confident it will be an enjoyable one for all PJCC members and village residents. Once again I thank Mayor Margot Garant and the entire Village Board of Trustees who have have demonstrated their continuing commitment to the country club. BOT liaison Stan Loucks is a constant and indispensable advocate for PJCC.

Some exciting changes will be evident in 2018. Through the hard work of Mayor Garant we have a new vendor for the restaurant and catering facility. The Crest Group owned by the Scarda Family of Belle Terre and Setauket and operators of Danfords Hotel and Marina will be overseeing the facility. They have had a great relationship with the village in the past. I am absolutely confident this new “partnership” will lead to an excellent member/ resident experience. I hope everyone takes advantage of this new “environment” and gives them their full support.

Also new for the coming season will be significant improvement to the golf driving range. This is in direct response to the results of a member survey performed in 2017. Also in response to that survey, dues are being maintained at a level making membership in PJ CC an outstanding value.  Tennis members will see new wind screens and a new sun awning in 2018 following purchase of new furniture in 2017. You can expect more responsive management with Renee Lemmerman from Port Jefferson Village Recreation directly overseeing operations including the tennis professionals and court maintenance.

Director of Golf, Bill Mackedon and Course Superintendent Brian MacMillan can be depended on to continue their outstanding performances in providing you with an excellent member experience and great course conditions. The management of “The Turn” who did such a fine job last year will be returning for 2018.

All Port Jeff residents are urged to take advantage of their club. Renee Lemmerman and the Village Department of Recreation have scheduled numerous programs you and your family to enjoy.

The volunteer members of the Country Club Management Advisory Committee give their time unselfishly to make your club experience more enjoyable while maintain financial viability. We meet the third Thursday of each month usually in the All -Purpose room in the clubhouse.  The CCMAC invites you to attend and express your views. Volunteers for sub-committees are frequently needed. For example at present the New Member Committee headed by Chris Ciantro is in need of volunteers. I urge you to get involved.

I look forward to a great 2018 season for one and all.

Dr. Joseph D’Agrosa, Chairman CCMAC

Dedicated Paver Project

Dedicated Paver Project The new patio in front of the scoreboard on the way to the first tee This patio, under the direction Golf Board of Governors and CCMAC, was funded entirely by contributions from members. In recognition of a contribution, an engraved stone paver has been placed in the patio. This is an ongoing program, with monies collected not only funding this patio but also future similar projects and plantings on the golf course. Unengraved pavers will be removed and replaced with engraved ones on a regular basis as additional contributors take advantage of this program.

We would like to express special thanks to Ben Kito, a PJCC member, village resident and owner of Kito Landscaping. In addition to a wonderful job, Ben has been extremely generous in constructing this patio at a greatly reduced price to fit our limited budget.

If you would like to participate in this project and receive an engraved paver, please fill out a form available in the pro-shop and 19th hole. Contributions are $150 for the first paver and $75. for each additional. For further details speak to Bill Mackedon or any member of the committee.

Yours truly,

Dr. Joseph D’Agrosa
