The first week in quite some time with no rainfall. The amount of golfers has lessened as we move through the month of September. This is a problem dealt with every season once the golf leagues end. It’s a hard adjustment to get used to especially when the weather is so nice.
We will be starting our $25 golf with cart on Monday. There are a lot of people that take advantage if the discount fee. City employees and elected officials are also allowed to play free golf for the rest of the season. Cart fees will be $5 per seat as well.
Equipment repairs have been non stop each week. This has caused me to spend a lot of time, in the shop, working on repairs. One of the John Deere units is still in Omaha being repaired. This machine should be back mid week.
All of the yardage markers have been cleaned, old paint removed, and new paint added. Nine holes currently have the markers back in the ground. The markers have been placed in the center of the tees instead of the side. This will eliminate the tires constantly running over the markers. Here are some pictures:
Irrigation problems continue to be a major issue. This past week the irrigation computer stopped working. The Rainbird Global Service Plan covers our computer as well as other irrigation electronics. The new computer arrived the following day and we were back in business.
Tomorrow will be the makeup date for the police outing. Today we are holding a couple’s tournament with around 40 golfers. Last Sunday we held the Carl Spacklar golf outing. There were 142 participants.
Hopefully there are quite a few beautiful golf days in our future. Enjoy your finish to the weekend. Enjoy the sunshine and share a smile. Please contact me with any questions so they can be addressed in a timely manner.
