Marty accepted the position as Head Golf Pro at Bear Brook Golf Course in Newton, NJ. Jason accepted the position as Golf Superintendent at a new course that David Glenz is constructing. Marty was Head Golf Pro at Deer Run for 4 years while Jason was Superintendent at Deer Run for 7 years. The Golf Committee, Board of Trustees, and Deer Run Community are very grateful for the fine work of both these individuals. They both made Deer Run a better place and we all wish them the best in their new ventures. We would like to welcome James Famula as the new Head Golf Pro at Deer Run. We are presently in search of a new Superintendent and should have this decision finalized before the season opening. Message from Jim Famula Deer Run Community, I‟m happy to now be part of the Deer Run community. You belong to a great community with a beautiful golf course. I invite you to the Pro Shop even if you're not a golfer. Maybe it's time to learn how to play and enjoy the game of golf. Throughout the year I will be conducting a series of beginner clinics and also offer private lessons. Additionally, I have exclusive Deer Run logo apparel and golf equipment from all the leading manufacturers. Please think of the pro shop when you need to buy a gift as I can ship your item anywhere. Aside from offering you the best service, I will also guarantee that you will not find it for less anywhere. So take advantage of this opportunity and give me a call. Jim Famula, PGA Professional 973-694-0758 Repairing ball marks Use a pronged ball mark repair tool (preferably), knife, key or tee. Insert at the edges of the mark- not the middle of the depression. Bring the edges together with a gentle twisting motion, but don't lift the center. Try not to tear the grass. Smooth the surface with a club or foot. You're done when it's a surface that you would putt over.
