President's Letter - 2019 Opening

Welcome to the 2019 Opening of what promises to be one of the most exciting and best golf seasons ever at Madison Country Club!  In concert with the stalwart winter efforts of our course Superintendent Mike Chrzanowski & his crew, and those of our Head Pro Frank Carta and Business Operations Manager Melissa Mathers and their dedicated staffs, as well as our Club’s Committees and Board, all have worked tirelessly to make our membership’s golfing experience very special this year. 
During the offseason, there were many changes that we believe you will be pleased to see.  Just a few are highlighted below:
  • Hole # 8 – We have completed three changes to the eighth hole.  The green will now have a larger landing area and less time will be spent looking for lost balls on the left side of the green.  Second, we have installed a new tee so the gap between the back tees is not so large and we have more places to locate the tee markers.  Third, a set of mounds has been installed between the fairways of #8 and #18 and drainage was improved.  This area is currently ground under repair and should grow in by June or July.  Also, drainage has been improved as well. 
  • New golf carts – Our golf cart fleet has been totally replaced and now features new technology to reduce wear and tear on our golf course.  The carts are lighter and now have geo-fencing.  During the high heat periods that wear down our golf course, we will now have more ability to change traffic patterns so playing conditions are maintained in optimal condition.  
  • Golf carts during tournaments – To reduce the wear and tear on our golf course, we will continue to make golf carts optional for tournaments provided pace of play is preserved, and support walking all year round.    
  • 11th tee snack shack – We will be offering some food on weekends at the 11th tee facility.  Your support will be needed to ensure this becomes a long-term program. 
  • Golf course access – To improve golf course access concerns, the Men’s Twilight has been moved to Tuesday evenings so there is more open play on Wednesdays.  We have also reduced guest access on weekends and holidays so members have more opportunity to enjoy our golf course during peak periods.
  • Canada Geese – To reduce our population of Canada Geese and the mess they leave behind, we have hired a border collie service to encourage them to go elsewhere.  This will be an ongoing program. 
  • Championship tournaments – Now that the grow-in process of our major course renovation is complete, we would like to elevate the awareness throughout Connecticut of how enhanced our golf course is.  This will make it easier to attract new members and minimize the general market trend of declining participation in our sport.  In late May, we will host a qualifier for the Men’s Connecticut State Amateur.  In the fall, we will host the Women’s Tri-State and Endicott Cup tournament featuring the best women amateurs in CT, MA and RI.      
We expect a combination of our Club’s enhancements, in conjunction with the new 2019 USGA rules, will speed up play and bring more golfers into our membership base. 
                                                                                                                       
Given all the efforts that were behind making these improvements a reality, we will be expecting each and every member to increase his or her commitment to ensuring that our golf course is maintained in its best possible condition throughout the year.  Specifically, we will need you to fill divots completely, properly fix your ball marks, and rake the bunkers thoroughly so that we all enjoy our golf course.  Yes, this sometimes means fixing a couple ball marks and a few divots you find along the way. Your support is needed to make our golf course the best experience everyone deserves this season.
Lastly, we would appreciate it if you would “like” our Facebook page so you can see regular posts and updates at MCC.  We’d also appreciate it if you would post a review onto Facebook, Google or Yelp about your viewpoints on our golf course.  Thank you.
We hope you enjoy what promises to be a stellar 2019 golfing season at Madison Country Club! 
 
Yours truly,
Matt Rubano, President, MCC
