The rush of the golf season is over and now is the time for reflection and cleaning. The reflection is my time to go over what happened this past season and learn from what went right and what needs to improve. Without getting into a lot of details, this season went by pretty good. I can tell that was true by the compliments of the golfers directed to me or to the entire golf course staff. There was a learning curve for me coming into a new job that includes all the parameters that I do as my job. If there was one area that I will be working on next season is that of the irrigation system. Some updates and some streamlining are already in the planning stages. As for the cleaning, this is an exercise in good housekeeping. A clean shop is a happy shop! By cleaning and organizing the shop area, I am preparing to begin the equipment repairs that will start after the first of the year.
Speaking of next season, since today is the winter solstice, the days will begin to get longer. It won't be long and we will be able to play golf again and try out the new green surfaces! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone.
