Be humble and give more honor to others than to yourselves.” (Philippians 2:3b NCV)
Thank you Colonel Curtis Petrek you are my modern day hero! Colonel retired from the U.S. Airforce and served during the first part of the century when we were under attack. He’s only about fifty and runs marathons and I heard he can do this in his bare feet with no shoes! But he still works today and is in my Sunday school class! I recently met Sargeant Deatley who is serving at Guantanamo Bay in the U.S. Army through some travels. Thank you to my family members who served and all who serve today! Your service affords us the opportunity to display our flag and work on golf courses in a free country! This flags for you Colonel! And a gorgeous sunrise this morning.
Both Golf Courses are shaping up nice for the weekend and all the pin locations are set for the weekend on the Players Course. Jim got our new grinder in place! Thank you Ray Graves for helping us and the use of your truck. Great job this week to all the staff for your extra efforts in working on the details! The triplex mowers worked well on the Players Course for mowing fairways, but will be excited to get some reel grinding started and attempting to get the bigger units back out. I may even get the walk mowers out as the staff increases to about 14 people for 36 holes! I walked the Players Course this morning and caught up with Dr. Ritchlin to watch his amazing birdie out on #11! It was 60 feet. What a beautiful day for walking the course. It is 6.37 miles from the shop all the way around Players tee to green!
Ray thanks again for helping spot treat the traps in the evening and for hauling the grinder and range machine to the shop.
5 Players & 6 below
Mowing out the rough beside 9 green Players and then we will cut the left area down to approach height as soon as we get a mower with enough power and sharp reels we will create more shorter cut turf around the greens to increase playability.
Stripes are right!
