General Manager’s Message We welcome you back home to Tiburón Golf Club and we have an exciting season planned for you! It’s exciting to see Members back and enjoying the amenities at Tiburón Golf Club. The CME GROUP Tour Championship is the finish line for the LPGA season points race, the Race to the CME Globe. The tournament will once again be played at Tiburón Golf Club November 1922. Two weeks later, the Club will host the PGA TOUR’s Franklin Templeton Shootout on December 7-12. Both events will be held on the Gold Course, which is sure to challenge the best lady and gentlemen golfers in the world.

Select an ornament tag from the Angel Tree 2. Note your tag number on the sign-up sheet 3. Purchase an appropriate gift using the guidelines on the ornament tag 4. Return the unwrapped gift to the Club by Friday, December 4 Your local Boys & Girls Club will handle the rest by making sure the gifts are wrapped and delivered to each child! We work very hard to make your time spent at Tiburón enjoyable. If we succeed, please tell your friends. If we don’t, please tell me. We look forward to seeing each of you at the Club soon and often! As of October 31, 2015, we have a total of 248 Golf Members and 189 Signature Members for a total of 437 total Members. Since January 1, 2015, approximately 20% are new Members to Tiburόn Golf Club. Since WCI Communities had its last condo sales closing within the Tiburόn community, the focus of our marketing within Tiburόn is now with resale residences and upgrades to Medallion Membership. In addition, I am targeting new and existing nongolf club communities with opportunities to visit Tiburόn Golf Club and experience the lifestyle of our amenities. Our Facebook page continues to grow as we now have 15,257 Likes, compared to 14,862 last month at this time. We have 1,288 Twitter followers. We will be launching Instagram and a blog in the next 60 days. During our two golf events coming up, the LPGA CME Group Tour Championship and the Franklin Templeton Shootout, many of our top prospects will be invited and entertained at Tiburόn Golf Club.
