This past week our main focus was general maintenance practices around the golf course. We had a short work week due to the Labor Day holiday which was followed by the police golf outing on Tuesday. That leads up to one of our biggest golf outings of the year happening today.
The maintenance staff has been working one employee short in comparison to the past few years. This is being done to help offset the lower revenue dollars we have seen this year. We worked some evening hours in order to get the golf course in nice shape by the end of the week. It was challenging to get everything mowed down in a timely manner.
This upcoming week looks like more rain headed in our direction. We will continue with normal maintenance practices and most likely start removing some of the dead pine trees around the golf course.
Spraying the fall broadleaf weed application, fertilizing, spraying greens, and sand trap maintenance are some of the items on the list in the coming weeks. It is helpful that so much of the rough is dormant from the lack of rainfall.
The golf board meeting is moved until September 16th. We need to have a full attendance in order to vote on officers for the upcoming year. If there are questions, comments, or concerns please get in touch with me so they can be addressed in a timely manner. Enjoy the remainder of the weekend.
