Windy conditions

Last night brought brutally cold and windy conditions to sky valley. It was 8* this morning and after a tour of the golf course, there were only 2 pine trees down. I would have thought more would have been blown over. Lots of small debris to pick up along with pine cones. Looks like we have some snow on the way tomorrow with frigid temps hanging around for most of the week.

I want to take a moment and thank these guys, from left to right, Roberto,Nacho, Armando and Miquel. There is not a day that goes by that I don't thank them for their hard work. Without these guys it would make my job extremely tough. Over the winter we have accomplished many in house projects that has saved the club thousands of dollars. Other staff members that are not pictured are Luis and his dad coco. Luis is in Mexico now applying for visas for his wife and daughter to come to the states. When you see these guys, give them a pat on the back and a big thanks for all the hard work they have done.

Maintenance equipment update

We are half way through our yearly oil changes on the turf equipment. All of the mowers and carts are serviced at this time, including oil and filter change, rebuilding rollers and replacing worn out bearings, sharpening the rotary blades and grinding of reels and bed knives. It won't be long before we are out mowing grass.

Pressure washing

We have completed pressure washing all the bridges except 18. It was a very cold week for nacho, some days didn't get above 32*, but he managed to finish. Next we will apply a waterproof sealant to protect the wood.
