From the Director of Golf…
The golf course staffs would like to welcome you to On Top of the World Golf Club. The goal of the golf operations team is to create an enjoyable golf atmosphere for you.
We strive to accommodate golf club members, On Top of the World Communities residents and non-resident guests with their golf requests. This facility offers league competition in the Men’s Golf Associations and the Ladies 9 Hole or Ladies 18 Hole Golf Associations. A yearly tournament schedule features events throughout the year designed to enhance the camaraderie among the golfers while at the same time providing different tournament formats.
Before teeing off at either golf club, the golf staff asks that you register for play in the appropriate golf shop. The golf course policies and procedures outlined in this handbook are designed to maximize your golf experience – please review them and let us know if you have any questions.
The VIP World Passport is a card that is a great compliment to your golf membership. You’ll enjoy delicious, healthy fare and receive a discount on menu items at our two restaurants and golf courses.

From the Golf Course Superintendent…
On behalf of the golf course maintenance team, I want to thank you for joining us at On Top of the World Golf Club. We are very proud of our facilities and strive to keep the courses in the best condition possible.
It is very important that we enlist the membership to help us keep the courses in top shape. The proper and timely repair of ball marks on the greens is vital in keeping putting surfaces smooth and healthy. Filling divots on tees and fairways will speed recovery and provide a smooth surface. Obeying all cart rules by following directional signs and maintaining all four wheels on the cart path around tees and greens will limit the amount of wear and tear to our rough and surrounding areas.
In addition, throughout the year we will perform some necessary maintenance practices that will aid in the long term conditioning of the golf course. Beginning in May and throughout the summer months, the golf course will be aerified several times. Aerification reduces compaction from foot and cart traffic, removes thatch and organic matter and allows for water, air and nutrients to penetrate into the root zone. During this process all tees and fairways will be verticut to remove thatch and stimulate new leaf tissue and growth. In order to perform these practices safely and quickly, the golf course will be closed during these processes.
We appreciate your comments and look forward to seeing you on the course.
Andrew J. Jorgensen,Certified Golf Course Superintendent
