This past week concluded the majority of outside projects planned for 2019. The weather still looks nice for the next few days and that will allow me to finish a couple other small items prior to the frozen tundra arriving.
Projects that were completed this fall include:
-removal of the dead trees on the course
-cutting stumps down to ground level
-algae control in both ponds
-aerification of the greens
-sod repair on fairways
-fertilization of greens, tees, and fairways
-tile addition on #16
-tile repair Waterway Park
-winterize the pumphouse
-change oil and filters in all equipment
Projects I will continue to work on early this week include:
-back filling the tile area on #16
-marking stumps for removal
-measure landscape areas for 2020 plans
-continue to research a tagging system for 2020 daily fees
I would like to thank the part time staff inside the clubhouse and outside on the grounds for all their work and dedication. Inside staff are all working at the golf course as a part time second job. They do a great job meeting the needs of our golf clientele. I’m thankful for each one of them every day.
The outside staff worked tirelessly trying to constantly get caught up with daily maintenance fighting the rain and other poor weather. Irrigation issues, equipment problems, and crazy work schedules made it especially difficult. They worked very hard with a lot of pride in the golf course. There work is never ending and often goes unnoticed by the public.
It has been a very challenging year. I look forward to the off season preparation and implementing some of the discussed changes for the 2020 golf season. I hope the weather cooperates for golfers, farmers, and others. The clubhouse will be open this off season for events and the golf simulator. Hopefully the public will utilize our beautiful clubhouse.
Enjoy the remainder of the weekend. Please contact me with any comments. questions, or concerns so they can be addressed in a timely manner.
