Homeoutside jobs

The outside crew have been busy getting the course looking good.   A huge part of that is making sure our watering system is working properly. Let’s just say that as soon as I strike oil, I’m going to promptly install a new irrigation system and parking lot. An irrigation system that is 43 years […]

When you have a family business, you start working at an early age.  I started helping my dad change the cups on the golf course when I was two.  He always said, “You’re such a great helper.  With you, it only takes me two hours to change cups when it takes me one and a […]

Winter.  It’s the best time of the year. Tongue in cheek. There’s just nothing like waking up while it’s still dark out and heading to a shop that can’t get above 50 degrees because the windchill is -40 outside.  Jealous? Unfortunately, it’s simply a job that needs to be done.  Winter is time for us […]

As the temperatures drop, the level of activity increases around these parts.  We’re getting prepared for Old Man Winter.  We like to wait until we can see that we’re officially in the deep freeze.  Then, it’s all hands on deck to knock out the projects.  Most of it has to do with water.  If it […]

There are two ideal times of the year to deal with trees:  the spring and the fall.  This is because of how the tree protects itself.  In the height of summer, the tree has all of its branches filled with sap and nutrients.  As it prepares for the winter, it begins to concentrate its nutrients […]

For the second year (almost three), we have found ourselves in drought conditions.  I thought I’d share with you all the fun that those conditions can bring to a golf course.   In case you can’t tell, I’m using the word fun very loosely. Droughts are definitely good for exposing your weaknesses in irrigation and (possibly) […]

When I was a kid, I loved the time of year when we aerated greens.  The entire crew would come together and it felt like every piece of equipment we owned had a duty for the day.  There was excitement in the air.  Mom always made a special meal for the outside crew and there […]
