Busy Florida Fall Continues In Ohio!

Isaiah 40:31

but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

You know it’s been too long since my last update when peers across town are calling asking if I’m okay! “Yes sir” Mark all well just been busy great speaking with you sir. I’ll start there we have had many happenings since June or July and even a Holliday or 2 pass through, but it has been mostly dry and warm which is conducive for mycelium development. Our program of fungistats have been working on fairways, tees, and greens. I have taken “cide” out of my terminology for several reasons and here are two. 1. A fungicide does not actually kill a disease it only suppresses it for a given time frame during conducive conditions. 2. As an industry that constantly gets a negative connotation it makes no logical sense to re-iterate number 1 constantly for the subliminal subconscious or unconscious. We utilize Best Management Practices and that’s our adoptive mantra moving forward.

I got to meet another Ret. Air Force Colonel in early September, Bob Darden came over from Beavercreek to check out Players Club. I got to ride nine holes with him and yes we are cousins.

Robert Darden and Darden Robert Nicks above and Robert Darden and his friend below. I believe my entire family was either military, teachers, farmers, preachers, esquires, and then me. Someone had to fall off the turnip truck!

We have finally gotten some needed rain even through the Low is 71 this morning for an October day. It is groundhogish of sorts lately and before I knew it the second week of October was upon us! We have gotten over 2.5” since Friday with a little more on the way. Thanks Nate. Rain gauge at CH and 1 Players this morning. We will be open by noon with a Staff of 1.

Yes I wore red and my NC State hat. I took the fall and let her wear the OSU hat. I did not cheer against OSU. And they beat the turtles which is always great being an old ACC Foe! That’s probably the only ACC school none of us graduated from.

Tree work beautiful sunrises. And there is Nate. Thanks Nate.

Mycelium last Thursday a cultivar of Sceleratinia something like that. Latin ain’t real too swift after Nate got my feet wet.

Thanks Brooks for fixing the second different bridge of the year and painting the tee markers.

9 Quick Coupler Repairs this summer and sodding 9 Fairway Players where the geese roost. Need the Fox to catch them or the Coyotes.

I’m not sure that Fox will hunt if he’s eating hot dogs & bunking at the shop.

We have repaired 15 to 20 solenoids this summer as well as Joel Braun rebuilding an irrigation pedestal! Thank you drunk golfer. Thanks Joel #1

Now we are back through Labor Day I’ll try not to let to much time pass by before the next update. Thank you all for your prayers and support. See you somewhere soon!
