Rainy Day Activities

The weather today has presented us with a good opportunity to dispel any notion that work for the grounds crew stops during inclement weather. We are fortunate to have a large fleet of equipment and a nice maintenance facility to compliment our efforts on the golf course. The retail value of our maintenance fleet exceeds $1 million and our shop was constructed at a cost of over $400, 000. When bad weather prevents us from maintaining the golf course all hands are employed to maintain the valuable resources we have in our building and equipment.

Cleaning and polishing cups to be rotated back out on the course.
Large pieces of equipment may have over 100 grease points which must be serviced regularly- thousands of pumps of the grease gun every month.
Golf course maintenance is dirty work. Our 7,000 square foot facility does not stay clean for long.
