I apologize for the lack of posts in the recent weeks, we have been quite busy around here. Not with projects per-say but with day to day routine maintenance. The reason we are so busy with this now is that half of our crew just went back to school. Most of our seasonal help is now gone for the year, a few have come in to help for a few months, but for the most part - we are doing all our work with a crew of 8 vs. 17 during the summer. The months of August and September are always hard for us because expectations are still high, course conditions must remain top notch, but our crew size has been cut in half.
So what are we doing to get things done. Well, we are not doing many "extras" or projects. We have curtailed our work down to the "must be done" such as mowing and focusing on the details. As we get further into fall, we will begin to curtail some of our regular maintenance and began to focus on a few projects.
We do have a busy fall planned with 3 decent projects on the books:
Mid September - all the cart paths around the clubhouse and the 1st area will be repaved
September/October - the 15th hole snack shack will get a face lift
September/October - 6 new gold tees will be built on holes 1, 4, 11, 15, 16 and 18
