A typical week starts with daily (7 days/week) mowing greens, changing cups, raking bunkers, moving tee markers, picking up garbage, patrolling for sticks and cleaning/fueling machines. And that’s all before 7am! Monday, Wednesday and Friday schedules add the tasks of rolling and blowing off greens; mowing approaches, tees, fairways; mowing green and tee banks, and, of course, mowing rough.
Depending upon the season, there’s the extra jobs all around the golf course including prepping flower beds, watering, weeding, fertilizing, mulching, tree/plant trimming, adding sand to bunkers, grinding stumps/branches and so much more!
Another time-consuming task is pothole duty all season long. With all the rain this year, staff can hardly keep up with them. And let’s not even talk about what needs to be done if it floods! The challenges change from year to year, but the goal is to provide you a well-maintained and beautiful course for your enjoyment.
This year, there’s several new crew members who have done a great job learning fast and getting the job done. Please feel free to pass along your “at-a-boys” to the crew!
