Here is another great article for your reading pleasure:
This weekend, while you are waiting for the frost delay to pass, spend some time thumbing through this overview on golf course maintenance equipment. FCC has over $1,000,000 tied up in maintenance equipment, this article does a great job explaining why it is all needed.
Last year the Board put together a plan to ensure funds are available on a yearly basis to replace worn equipment. We also do everything we can in regards to preventive maintenance to increase the time frame between replacements and keep our equipment operating efficiently.
At some point in the future, I would like to hold an open house allowing the membership to tour our facilities and get an overview of the equipment. I think it would bring some knowledge to what goes on behind the scenes.
