Another week has passed at the golf course. The weather has been great and we have been busy just about every day. Today we are hosting our annual mixed couples tournament. The sign up is down quite a bit from years past. We have about 30 teams participating.
The maintenance staff was short two employees this past week. This made it a challenge to complete all the maintenance practices. I am very proud of the guys for staying on top of all the work assignments leading up to the tournament. Overall, the golf course is in very nice shape.
I was able to clean up the tile area around 16 green and 17 tees. The soil was leveled with the loader and lightly compacted in the trenches. We were also able to mow the majority of these areas. These areas will eventually be tilled and seeded next month.
I started spraying the remainder of the course on Wednesday but experienced some electrical issues with the sprayer. There are also electrical issues with a utility cart, fairway mower, and rental cart. Also, one of the rough units has a hydraulic leak. I do believe I will be spending a lot of time in the shop.
Please feel free to contact me with any comments, questions, or concerns so they can be addressed in a timely manner. I will see the golf board members tomorrow evening at 5:15.
