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.

Divot Day 2013!

Thank you to our dedicated participants! Every divot on every tee and fairway has been filled!
The process took all of one hour and forty-five minutes.
Our participants were treated to a wonderful breakfast prepared by General Manager, Sean McLaughlin, before they hit the course at 7:30AM. Thanks Sean! Six teams took care of three holes each. Everyone is always amazed at how many divots go unfilled on the course until they see them filled.
I want to give special thanks to Jim McMahon Sr. who organizes the teams and supervises this awesome event! Green and Grounds Chairman, Barry Burke, not only helps organize and recruits members but gives our maintenance staff the support in pulling off the event. Thank you Jim and Barry!
We hope to hold another Divot Day later in the season. If you have not had the chance to attend in the past, please try in the future. There is some work involved but it is definitely fun!
