Luke 21:19 By your endurance you will gain your lives!
We have gotten the pre-emergent applied to the Players Course fairways, tees, and one pass around the roughs for crab grass. We were also able to get all the greens treated for dollar spot prevention as well as the Players Course fairways and tee tops. Bunker progress continues with a few of the staff members including your new Assistant Superintendent Travis Russell. Travis knows how I want the bunkers and has done an excellent job. However, we still have 80 bunkers to maintain and the rain is beneficial but but creates continual work in the bunkers. Jim has the older rough mower repaired by rebuilding the axle instead of purchasing a brand new one. We are waiting on a rear clutch arm assembly from John Deere for the bunker machine. This is a wearing moveable part. We acquired the machine last summer and it was new to Foxfire but used and these parts wear from normal use. We are looking forward to obtaining the grinder which will allow us to begin sharpening fairway reels, and eventually other reels as we catch up. This is very time-consuming and may take up to a month to complete one mower. Each reel must be completely disassembled and most likely new bearings, seals, racers, bushings, and rollers could need replaced. We will not know this until the units are completely disassembled. The photo shoot for the TV ad on Players went well last week and I feel the courses looked as good as possible for the resources available. Thank you Mike Sloma, and Jim Dillard for the products.
And when the wheels fall off the wagon to haul the wagon with out the wheel it turns in to an official project which permits me extra time to pray for endurance! This is the area where the newer grinder will be located.

It’s always a pleasure to see Dr. out walking during the week.
