This year we are really trying to focus on safety, though we have not had any accidents, I want to keep it that way. We are moving towards the grounds staff wearing hard hats as they work on the golf course. You just can not be to careful when we work in an environment that has this kind of danger. Once its time to start work in the morning, its go time!, the crew is busy preparing for the morning jobs which could be very labor intensive. So my assistants and I have come up with a few stretches that the crew goes through before they start work. Its obvious why we want them to do this, so we can limit the amount of injuries from either lifting, pushing, shoveling etc... and this brings everyone a little closer which creates a team building exercise, so to speak.

First off Happy New Year to everyone that has been following. It has been a bitter cold and windy winter so far but we have managed to complete a few projects. The first one was to finally have our heater in the main shop plumed for gas and it has been turned on today and what a difference. Currently we are installing a couple of irrigation heads on 18 where there was no coverage. As you can see in the picture we are almost complete. Our next stop is 17 with two heads to add as well as behind the 8th green with 4 irrigation heads to add. As far as the shop goes we have one wall complete and organized as seen in the photo.
