Happy New Year! It looks like 2019 will start the way 2018 ended in terms of rain, snow, and soggy ground. We are handcuffed in terms of doing any work that requires getting off of the cart path. For the time being we are getting dead and/or troublesome trees removed along cart paths. We need conditions to improve in order to make a dent in many of the things that are on our list. Things like winter weed control in the fairways, drainage work, bunker work, irrigation repairs, etc... require better ground conditions than what we've had since Labor Day. It's tough on a few staff members who don't get hours when the weather is this bad. We have plenty to do, but can't do it in these conditions. Hopefully, for the sake of the course and the staff, we can get some breaks in the winter weather soon. On the bright side, snow and ice have given us time to focus on some indoor jobs like equipment repairs, tee marker construction, painting course accessories, and helping as needed with the clubhouse expansion. We'll gladly put those jobs on hold as soon as conditions let us get on the course.
It takes 160 to make one set and we need at least two sets in order to keep them looking clean.
Hopefully this new look will be much easier for us to keep up with than the ones we've
had since we opened 25 years ago.
Mike repurposed two of our spare greens mower trailers for a couple hundred bucks.
New tires, some welding repairs, steel tubing, etc... and we have two trailers custom made f
or our specific needs. When it warms up they'll get a coat of paint.(image)A little welding
