Worn out!!

Last years renovation and grow-in of the greens was much harder on the greens walk mowers than anticipated.  New reels on either side of the old one.  We will be getting a greatly improved quality of cut when the new reels are installed today and Tuesday.

Season is upon us.

It is that time of year again.  Member from the north have begun to show up and activity at the club is picking up.  The dreaded stake/ropes will begin going out this week.  The yellow, black & blue stakes have been put out.  As a reminder, cart are allowed to exit off the cart path after the yellow stakes.  Carts must return to the paths before the black stakes and the blue stakes are indicating where handicap parking is.  The new range tee dividers have been put out on the range.  Please, only hit balls within the length of the divider.

Irrigation Repair

Staff repaired a 6” mainline leak on Wednesday/Thursday.  A service tee (pictured below) had a hole form.  While it is rare to see holes form in ductile iron fittings it does happen.  The irrigation system needed to be shut down to make the repair easier.  The system was drained the old fitting removed and new iron service tee installed, along with a 6” mega lug repair sleeve.  The area will remain as GUR until sod is delivered next week to finish the repair.  Staff did an excellent job in getting the system back up quickly.

Tropical Storm Gordon

Tropical storm Gordon came close enough to the club to drop almost 3” of rain and had wind gusts over 45mph.  There was no damage to any of the newly planted trees on the golf course.  Hopefully the additional inch of rain forecasted for today will not happen.  Unfortunately it did bring an end to the Labor Day event.  Staff will be working on cleaning up debris, edging the coquina cart paths and working on the chipping green.

Roof update!

Colonial Roofing is moving along with the overlay of the golf maintenance building roof.  Everything should be wrapped up by the end of the week.  The roof is currently 100% waterproof at this time and the material is 97% reflective which means cooler temperatures for the office and mechanics.  No more 5 gallon bucket sitting on my desk.
