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 Staff Performing Winter Duties!

The maintenance staff is busy cleaning, repairing, sharpening and servicing the equipment inventory. We do all of our own preventative maintenance and repairs to over seventy pieces of equipment during the winter months. Winter maintenance not only increases the equipment life but reduces “down-time” during the playing season.

In addition to equipment maintenance, course supplies such as benches, water cooler houses, ball-washers, tee markers and the like, are repaired, cleaned and painted.

Besides the time at the maintenance facility, we also do tree pruning and removals and handle all the club's snow removal duties.
Never a dull moment.
No, we do not have the winter off.
