Dear Members,
                               We wish all of our members, staff and all of your families a healthy and happy
                               New Year. 2022 is indeed a year to look forward to and celebrate with our families
                               and friends. We anticipate record attendance at our events this season and hope
                               that each of you will take an opportunity to welcome our new members and their
                               families. What makes Gleneagles special is the warm, welcoming culture created by
                               our members over the years.
      Deborah Benson
        club president         The Board of Governors election is scheduled for February 22, 2022. Meet the Candidates
                               Night will be held on January 24, 2022 at 7:30 pm in the Legends Dining Room.

                               We are excited to report that for the first time, our members will have the option of
                               voting online as a result of a resolution passed by our Board of Governors in January
                               2021. Voting online provides an easy way to participate in important club elections
                               without having to rely upon a paper ballot sent and returned via US Mail. This is
                               the perfect solution for seasonal residents who may be in another residence when
                               election material is sent. In addition, online voting saves paper as well as provides
                               the peace of mind and reassurance that your ballot was received and counted.
                               The deadline to enroll in online voting for the 2022 election has passed, but you
                               can always enroll in online voting for future elections by completing a form at the
                               Concierge Desk or on the Members Only website. All members will receive election
                               material in January 2022.
        Kraig Spina
           general             We would like to thank Mrs. Deborah Benson, Mrs. Barbara Berkowitz, Mrs. Judy
           manager             Hotz and Mr. Steve Wolk for their service on the Board for the past six years. These
                               individuals have completed three concurrent two-year terms on the Board of
                               Governors. Deborah, Barbara, Judy, and Steve, as well as the entire 2021 board were
                               instrumental in helping Gleneagles navigate through the pandemic successfully
                               within our Gleneagles Community. The members of the Gleneagles board attended
                               more than 60 meetings during 2021 giving selflessly to the club. We hope you will
                               consider being part of our Gleneagles Governance in the future whether you serve
                               on a committee or the Board of Governors.

                               We are excited for the opening of our new dining venue, The V. We hope that you
                               will soon have the opportunity to experience this new venue, and we look forward to
                               offering exciting new culinary experiences and events in
                               The V in the year ahead.

                               Gleneagles continues to be the best place to live and play, and it is a testament to our
                               lifestyle that real estate inventory is still at near record-low levels with just a handful
                               of units available for sale.

                               The January 2022 issue of The Eagle is a special issue, as we have incorporated our
                               Healthy Life Newsletter on pages 9-12. The Healthy Life Newsletter is produced four
                               times each year. New for 2022, we will be incorporating The Healthy Life into the
                               January and April Eagle newsletters to ensure everyone has a chance to see this
                               wonderful publication created by our Healthy Lifestyle Center team. The August and
                               November 2022 issues will be distributed online with hard copies available in the
                               Healthy Lifestyle Center.

                               We look forward to a very happy, healthy, and successful 2022. Happy New Year!

                                 Respectfully yours,

    by Louis Scorzello
    Body composition analysis provides us with a summary of what our
    bodies are made of. By understanding how much muscle mass, fat mass
    and water we store within ourselves, we are able to uncover the areas
    of our physiology that might need improvement and develop relevant
    strategies to address these issues.
    Using the Inbody body composition analyzer at the Healthy Lifestyle
    Center, you will receive a personalized analysis of your weight, muscle
    mass, fat storage, hydration status and metabolic rate with charts and

Z     exercise

 Do Sweat It
 There’s a reason why, for centuries, exercise has been the go-
 to prescription for vitality – but that reason is not what most
 people think. Yes, exercise improves blood flow. Yes, it improves
 lung and heart health. But more than any of that is a simple
 thing that happens at a much smaller scale: the cellular scale.

 When researchers studied the telomeres (the end of a
 chromosome) in the blood cells of thousands of adults with all
 sorts of exercise habits, they saw a striking correlation: those who
 exercised more had longer telomeres (an indicator of longevity).
 And according to one study funded by the Centers for Disease
 Control and Prevention and published in 2017, individuals who
 exercise more – the equivalent of at least a half hour of jogging/
 fast walking five days a week – have telomeres that appear to be
 nearly a decade younger than those who a live a more sedentary
 life. But, why would exercising delay the erosion of telomeres?

 Exercise, by definition, is the application of stress to our bodies.
 It raises NAD (coenzyme central to metabolism) levels, which
 turns up energy production and forces muscles to grow extra
 oxygen-carrying capillaries. The longevity regulators AMPK
 (coordinates metabolic pathways by balancing nutrient supply
 with energy demand), mTor and sirtuins (both regulate cellular
 processes) are all modulated in the right direction by exercise:
 building new blood vessels, improving heart and lung health,
 making people stronger and extending telomeres.

 There’s really no way around this. We all need to be pushing
 ourselves, especially as we get older, yet only 10 percent of people
 over 65 do. The good news is we don’t have to exercise for hours on
 end. One recent study found that those who ran/fast walked four to
 five miles a week – for most people, that’s an amount of exercise that
 can be done in less than 15 minutes per day – reduce their chance of
 death from a heart attack by 45 percent and all-cause mortality by
 30 percent. That’s a massive effect.

 A simple 10-minute walk with a friend can be
 so powerful. Here’s why:

 • The physical exercise will boost your brain health
 • The conversation will tweak brain neuro circuits
 • If you talk about what’s on your mind, it will help relieve stress

     Fresh Perspectives
     January first has arrived, and suddenly it is time to
     start something new and embrace the excitement
     of beginnings. It’s the first blank page of a 365 page
     book that your Food & Beverage team is excited
     to write. This past year may have thrown more
     at us than we planned, but we still made it and
     we kick off this new year with our New Year’s Day
     Champagne Brunch. It will be a lavish, all you
     can eat brunch experience featuring a bottomless
     bloody Mary and mimosa bar.
     While we look forward to new beginnings, we won’t
     forget the things that make us great, including our
     Lobster Nights which will be featured on January 15
     and 22. There will be two opportunities to attend this
     evening as we want to be able to accommodate all.
     The V (formerly The Veranda) is a popular topic
     when I speak with members. The V will be utilized
     by Food & Beverage in January. As the restaurant
     supplies are due to arrive soon, we are excited to
     be able to have you experience our new venue. As
     there are many challenges and unknowns, we have
     decided not to add specific dates to the calendar
     in the Newsletter. Our schedule has been fluid
     thus far and we thank you for all the support and
     understanding as we face these challenges head
     on. The Weekly Dining Specials email is a great
     resource to see what is going on in Food & Beverage
     in regard to schedules and offerings.
     Our Wednesday and Friday evenings in Legends
     and around the pool have been highly successful
     and very well attended, but did you know we offer
     in-club dining on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and
     Sunday nights? This brings us up to six nights a
     week for in-club dining with menus varying based
     on venue and theme.
     We will continue to work hard while we navigate
     these unprecedented times and I assure you that
     bringing fun and a great dining experience is
     paramount to our team. Thank you for all the
     support and we look forward to making 2022 a
     great year.

                                                    as outdoor activities provide a safe way to socialize and exercise, and it is
                                                    so nice to see the golf courses at full capacity.
                                                    We wish everyone a great season, especially our new members who are
                                                    spending their first winter in our special paradise at Gleneagles. As
                                                    always, our doors are open, and we always look forward to conversations
                                                    with our members about golf and life in general. We are a family – and
                                                    we look forward to a wonderful 2022!

                                                    PRO TIP: SMALL CHANGES, BIG IMPACT!
                                                    1. Balance is very important in anything we do in life, but especially
                                                       in golf. If we want to create power in a golf swing, balance is key.
                                                       Any exercise or activity that you can do to improve your balance in
                                                       general will also pay dividends to your golf game.
                                                    2. Grip pressure is important to balance. Too firm of a grip will not
                                                       allow us to set the club in the back swing and release properly on the
                                                       follow through.
                                                    3. Swing width is not something that we talk about often, but it’s
                                                       important as when we swing our arms, it creates width in our swing
                                                       and this allows for power. If the arms stay too close to the body, this
                                                       can cause you to top the ball.
                                                    Golf is a game in which we are all students for life. Keep learning and
                                                    trying new things, and always remember, keep smiling and soft hands!

     important to prepare ahead of the game, and also to have a routine for protecting                                               P

     Before you ever step on the Pickleball court, you should observe a ritual of            Saturday, January 29 • 9:00 am
     warming up with a brisk walk and lightly stretching the muscles in your lower
     body, namely the hamstrings (the back of your thigh), calves, hip flexors, and
                                                                                                     Tennis Pro Shop
     quadriceps (the front of your thigh). Stretching not only benefits the leg muscles,
     but also helps loosen your lower back. Stretch your shoulders, and warm up your                  561-499-0211
     elbows and wrists.                                                                           MON-FRI 7:30 am - 4:00 pm

     Many injuries in Pickleball are the result of
     overextending or moving more aggressively than
