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.

Ice Dam Or Dam Ice? Removing Ice From Maintenance Facility Roof

The ice is about a foot thick on the gutters of the maintenance facility. In an effort to reduce ice damming, we are trying to clear the gutters and cut channels for melting snow to flow off uninhibited. No easy task. Even with the use of the steam cleaner and calcium chloride.
Heavy snow is expected again Tuesday through Thursday and again on Saturday!
