In reaching our goal of becoming Audubon Certified for Golf Courses we have installed our mallard box near the irrigation pond, other nesting boxes to come are bat and purple martin houses installed around the golf course. Also we have just about finished our new beds to the left of #7 tees and have designated this as a memorial garden for past members no longer with us.

It all starts with my assistants on a re-cap of what took place Thursday to the crew, as well as some keys things to work on. Then we lead into the Friday duties for the guys. Sometimes it can be a log jam trying to get different pieces of equipment out, just when I get to the point of frustration it all works out. You see Friday is when we mow the most turf and is also our detail day for the weekend. All hands are on deck to complete the mornings task. I have attached some photos of what we are doing this morning. Here is a list of things that we do, Drag fairways to remove dew (this helps keep disease down to a minimum) mow and roll greens, mow approaches and fairways, mow intermediate, rake all bunkers, fill all water coolers and divot bottle containers and finish up mowing rough for the weekend. All and all we mow about 37 acres of bent grass and the rough is about 80 acres. So there is quite a bit to do here.
