Message from the President
With the Polar Vortex and dark days of winter behind Stay up to date on The Chesapeake!
us, spring has arrived and changes are in the air at the Visit www.princessannecc.com,look for weekly
Princess Anne. We are underway with our renovations to emails and follow us on Facebook & Instagram.
The Chesapeake and are optimistic that the final touches
will be in place for an early summer opening. As with
any construction, there have been challenges for our
operational team to perform around this project and we
hope that the disruption to your enjoyment of our Club
has been minimal. Our Building Committee continues to study the
design concept and has obtained bids for our new and improved pool.
We will be presenting details of this project, along with enhancements to
our golf and tennis facilities, to our members this spring.
At the time of this writing,a special committee led by House Committee
Chair John Mazach has been involved in the search for a food and
beverage director to replace Mike Helms, who left our Princess Anne team in January. We are confident that our search committee
will fully vet and hire a talented, experienced leader for this critical position.
It is truly an exciting time in the life of the Princess Anne and all members of the Princess Anne team continue to strive for delivery
of a unique experience whenever you come for a visit. I hope to see you often in the (hopefully warm) months ahead!
All the best,
Jonathan L. Thornton
Up-to-Date from the General Manager
As we enter the spring season your operations team looks forward to implementing a wide array of exciting new
programs while enhancing longstanding traditions. This issue is packed with details and includes new or updated
events like the Masters Invitational Bash,Mother and Son Dance and Youth Movie Night on the Range.I encourage
you to take a moment now to populate your calendar and reserve your space for the fun!
The summer season will be here before we know it and the center spread in this 'Princess Anne Living' issue previews
summer youth activities. Our Youth Involvement Committee and Youth Programs Manager, Taylor Nelson have
worked strategically with our fitness, golf, swimming and tennis professionals to synergize and synchronize a wide
range of camps and programs. There have been numerous requests from Members inquiring if their grandchildren
can participate in our wonderful summer camps and the Committee has proactively addressed these requests with what we hope
will be deemed a “win-win” registration process. Please look inside this issue for details and attend the March 14th Youth Expo
to meet personally with Taylor and our professionals. As you have thoughts and questions about your Club please do not hesitate
to contact me at 440-3100 or via e-mail at [email protected].
See you at the Princess Anne!

“There is no longer a penalty for merely touching the line of play on the putting green.”
Touching the Line of Play on the Putting Green
New Rule: The previous prohibition of touching the line of play on the putting green is eliminated:
• There is no longer a penalty for merely touching the line of play on the putting green (the term “line of play” applies
everywhere on the course including the putting green and the term “line of putt” is no longer used).
• But the player is still subject to the prohibition on improving his or her line of play on the putting green (see Rule 8.1a, as
limited by 8.1b).
• No advantage is gained if a player or his or her caddie merely touches the surface of the putting green on the line where the
ball will be played.
Ball Played from the Putting Green Hits Unattended Flagstick in the Hole
New Rule: Under Rule 13.2a(2):
• There is no longer a penalty if a ball played from the putting green hits a flagstick left in the hole.
• Players are not required to putt with the flagstick in the hole; rather, they continue to have the choice to have it removed
(which includes having someone attend the flagstick and remove it after the ball is played).
• Allowing a player to putt with the flagstick in the hole without fear of penalty should generally help speed up play.
Dear Rules Guru: If I leave the flagstick in, my ball rolls in the hole but is leaning against the flagstick, is it considered holed?
Rules Guru: A ball is considered holed if any part of the ball is below the surface of the putting green.There are times when
the ball can be touching the flagstick but the flagstick is not centered and is leaning.This situation could prevent the ball from
being below the surface of the green; in this case the ball is not holed even though it is leaning against the flagstick.

Princess Anne Junior Golf Academy
Ages 7-13 / $350 per semester
Our Junior Golf Academy, which utilizes the Operation 36 platform developed by
iGrow Golf, consists of three aspects: education, practice and performance. Through
weekly classes and playing matches, the young golfers advance through six program
levels, each with 12 “subjects” to master. A badge is earned for mastery of each subject.
Once all 12 badges have been earned, the golfer can move up to the next level. The
ultimate goal for each golfer, however, is to play nine holes from their designated tee,
shooting a score of 36. The program is app based, so students (and parents) can track
their progress, which makes it fun and competitive. On Saturdays, when matches are
played, we conduct ESPN-style interviews with match winners and post them on our
Facebook page. This is fun for our golfers and enhances their public speaking skills.

John’s Tip of the Month | Be the First to Try the Clash
Wilson Labs: Inside the Making of the new Clash Tennis Racket Franchise
Forbes Media LLC | Dec 17, 2018
Carbon fiber sits in rolls. And sheets. All in a climate-controlled room so the fiber
stays perfect for when it comes time to prototype a new tennis racket. Inside Wilson
Labs, a 40,000-square-foot facility just down the road from Chicago’s O’Hare
International Airport, the engineering, prototyping and creation can all happen in
one location. But it doesn’t come without years of work to find a final solution in
crafting a brand-new tennis racket franchise.
All that work culminated for Wilson on Feb. 15, 2019, with the launch of a new
line, Clash. And this time, Wilson approached the effort with a different mindset, not always an easy task for a company
founded in 1914 and with a successful track record in the industry.
What is now known as the Clash racket started internally among the roughly 14 people inside Wilson Labs working on
racket sports, as the Undisputed Champion project, with a bold goal of making current racket designs obsolete.
To start, the team went to the field for qualitative research, challenging assumptions and confirming knowledge. “It helped
us to immerse in the sports consumer, see what kinds of problem they have and what some of the needs are,” says Tim
McKeown, Wilson senior global director of innovation and design.The over 200 hours of interviews uncovered plenty for
the team to consider in terms of how Wilson presented performance to the consumer and what was most important, from
the first time they saw a racket to the first time they picked it up to the first time they hit with it.
With a bold goal and consumer research behind them, the team moved into the next phase, converting a storage room
inside the lab into the concept room. Design boards took over the walls. Materials cluttered the table.The 600-plus
original ideas culled from research dropped down to 206 that seamed feasible.The team focused on improving dwell
time — the milliseconds the ball is on the racket strings, among other attributes.That 206 turned into 50 ideas, anything
from racket design to smaller technology systems.The 50 then became 12 concepts and six ideas ultimately went into
Grigor Dimitrov, a top-flight ATP player, was one of the first to hit with the Clash. “The ball catapults so well off the
racket,” he says. “It bites, absolutely uses a lot of spin. You can just put the ball into the corners.”
Wilson hopes Clash defines a new space in tennis rackets, a space that hasn’t previously existed. And it all comes from
over two years of work inside 40,000 square feet at Wilson Labs.

Holiday Tennis Camp & Laser Tag Party
We had a successful Holiday Tennis Camp & Laser Tag Party with over 100 kids participating over the three days. Everyone
had a great time and the older kids enjoyed laser tag!
Parents Meeting & 2018 Isabelle Yates Sportsmanship Award
In January, we held a parents meeting for our tennis parents to learn all aspects of junior tennis from our junior development
pathway and progression to our program descriptions. We also discussed how to navigate the USTA website, how to sign up
for Orange Ball and Green Ball Junior Team Tennis and how to prepare for high school tennis and beyond. The highlight
was the Isabelle Yates Sportsmanship Award ceremony where one of the kids from our program is selected by the pros
and Tennis Committee based on his/her overall commitment to excellence both on and off court. This person must have a
strong work ethic, great attitude, excel in school, come through our junior program and give back in terms of being a role
model and a mentor to younger kids. We were excited to announce Ryan Charles as this year’s recipient of the Isabelle Yates
trophy which will be on display year round in the pro shop. Ryan is the epitome of what this trophy stands for: 4.0 student at
Landstown High School, number one player on their tennis team, has been a stalwart of PACC’s junior tennis program from
the beginning and now is a starter on the varsity men’s tennis team at George Mason University. No matter how good Ryan
became he was never too good to attend all of our clinics even when it meant having to hit with kids half his age and level.
He’s been a volunteer instructor at our summer camps and has played on every one of our teams. Our team could not be more
proud of the way in which Ryan continues to represent all we stand for here at PACC Tennis, congratulations Ryan!
USTA Boys & Girls 12s SuperSet Shootout
We had a full boys’ draw for our U12 USTA Green Dot Shootout on Saturday, January 12 with 16 signed up. Out of those
16, 10 of them were from PACC, so it was quite a nice mix. Several of the players were nine-year olds just moving up from
the Orange Dot ball level. The one-day event was non-elimination format allowing each child to play four matches, win or
lose. At the end of the day we had two advanced Green Ball players from Suffolk that made it to the final which was won by
Smith Anderson. Our boys who participated were as follows: Owen Deaver, Bennett Deaver, Max Bradshaw, River Conley,
Connor Horan, Davis Doummar, Kiran Folck, Kris Katabian, Garrison Shipp and Thomas Newman. On the girls’ side we had
five entries, two of them being from PACC: Grayson White and Claudia Tillar. They each played four matches, with Katie
Smagliy from Virginia Beach prevailing without losing a match. All-in-all it was a nice showing from PACC and bodes well
for our junior program moving forward.

Gym Etiquette & Safety | Safe Use Tips for Resistance Bands
Resistance bands are effective, inexpensive, and easy to use, but they do pose hazards, as all fitness
equipment does, when not treated and used properly.
The two main dangers involved with resistance band training are breaking of the band or
letting go of an end while under tension. The result of both these actions can cause
the end of the band to snap toward the user violently and potentially inflict serious
Resistance bands can break down over time due to normal wear and tear from use. It
is important to inspect resistance bands frequently to ensure they are in safe operating
condition. Also, many of the injuries from resistance band exercises come from improper use.
• Never release a resistance band while under tension. A release under tension can cause the band to snap back toward
the user and result in significant injury.
• Begin all exercises slowly to ensure band strength.
• Avoid jerking the band.
