At the end of July, Security personnel, members of the Security Committee, and Coastal Bicycle Touring Club (CBTC) conducted our second Courtesy Safety Inspection (CSI) event near the Marshwood campus. Twenty-two golf carts were inspected, and only minor equipment issues were noted.

As a reminder, we have several streets dedicated as “Golf Cart-Free Zones.” I received a few requests to bring attention to a couple of streets where this rule is violated often. One such area is the bridge on Westcross Road over Green Island Road and Lake Street. The bridge over Westcross Road has a very distinct, dedicated lane marked by a cement divider. You cannot miss it, so please cross the bridge in this dedicated lane. We strongly encourage golf cart drivers to use the community paths whenever available. Please refer to page 29 of the 2021 Landings Residential Directory for a complete list of Cart-Free zones.

Golf Cart Charging and the Production of Hydrogen Gas

Due to some recent incidents of carbon monoxide detectors being set off while a golf cart has been charging, some residents have requested that I address that issue and other golf cart safety matters. This is an update of an earlier article on the subject.

I’m confused. I’m legitimately baffled by how many EMS calls we’ve received over the past month with no regard to OUR personal well-being. We come into your home wearing a mask and gloves so that we don’t bring anything into your home. It would be kind and responsible for you and your loved ones to put on a mask before we arrive to do the same for us.

Is the Housing Market Starting to Normalize?

Much has been said about the advent of COVID-19, its high physical toll and loss for so many, as well as its damage to so many businesses. Unfortunately, this chapter in our history is still unfolding.

As we’ve all witnessed in The Landings and as reported nationally, residential real estate has been a surprising beneficiary of the pandemic, and our community is no exception. But, like everything else, one can rest assured that change is underway.

All Golfers Are Welcomed to Play in L9GA

The Landings Ladies 9-Hole Golf Association (L9GA) is hosting our annual 9-hole charity golf tournament on Thursday, October 28 with a morning shotgun start on multiple courses at the Landings Club. Co-sponsored by  Sound View Wealth Advisors and Coastal Care Partners, the tournament will benefit Kids Cafe, of America’s Second Harvest of Coastal Georgia. This valuable, local program provides an after-school meal for children at-risk for hunger, as well as homework assistance, tutoring, and a safe place to be at the end of their school day and before they go home.

Dear Landings Association Members,

Just when we thought we had turned the corner, COVID-19 has come roaring back into our lives. If you visit our facilities, you may have noticed signs have gone back up requesting visitors to wear masks. Please note, The Landings Association is requiring all employees to wear masks when social distancing cannot be achieved, whether the employees have been vaccinated or not. Let’s all continue to do our parts to help others be as safe as possible.
