Ladies New #8 Tee Box
Open for play!
When #8 ladies tee box was originally built it was placed a bit too far south and sprigged with seashore paspalum. The angle of the sun dropped too low in the winter months and the lack of no sunlight damaged the tee box. Therefore, we moved the tee box approximately 20-30 yards north and sodded it with 419 Bermuda grass which is not as temperamental as the paspalum. This should eliminate any further blockage of sunlight from the large Banyan trees in the winter season.

Egyptian Geese are being a family!
We have so many different species of animals at Hollywood Beach Golf Resort. Furthermore, the Egyptian Goose which is mostly found in the Nile Valley South of the Sahara which is part of the swan, duck and geese family. The geese have multiplied over the years to South Florida. This is concretely evident on hole number 15 ladies tee box. When approaching please take caution because there you will find "Mr. & Mrs. "E" (geese) who have decided that #15 ladies tee box would be the perfect spot to build their family nest. The Egyptian geese like to nest in a large variety of situations, especially in holes of mature fields containing grass and tree areas making the geese feel safe.
The female builds the nest from seeds, leaves and grass and both parents take turn incubating the family eggs. Both the male and female care for the offspring until they are old enough to care for themselves. Egyptian Geese usually pair for life.
These geese are a largely terrestrial species, which will also perch readily on trees and buildings. Egyptian geese typically eat seeds, leaves, grasses, and plant stems. Occasionally, they will eat locust and worms.Here at Hollywood Beach Golf Resort they like bread, chips and have been known to eat most human foods. We are not sure when the hatching (birth) of these baby geese will take place.
Every morning our grounds crew checks to make sure all is good. I hope to update everyone in next month's newsletter with photos.
