Welcome to my blog!
It is my intention to give the readers a better understanding of what we do to maintain The Farms Country Club's 18 hole championship golf course and grounds.

Maintenance Crew Races to Beat Impending Weather!

The weather forecast is for rain tomorrow and cold temperatures to set in immediately following. We have finished topdressing the greens except for portions of the practice green which will be completed on Thursday. We spent a large amount of our man hours today preparing and sodding some patches on the practice green and the newly installed drain area in #18 approach. We didn't finish completely, but accomplished more than I thought we would considering our limited work force. The "finish" work will be completed on Thursday. The long range forecast shows consistent overnight temperatures in the twenties and highs in the low forties. This means frozen ground that is unworkable. Looks like we are going to win this battle by a hair!
