Winter Trail Update

Today, Monday the 18th we groomed the skate ski/snowshoe trail. It starts by the 10th tee and the route maps for both trails are posted at the tee. 

We also groomed the classic cross country trail but only with the snowmobile, not the track setter. 

We’ll groom the trails by 11:00 each day we get fresh snow and I will update the blog when we can start using the track setter.

Update - Cross Country Ski Trails

Last winter we built a new skate ski groomer and we heard good reviews.

Happy New Year!  With each snowfall (last night was 4-5 inches) we are getting closer to grooming our classic cross country trail as well as our skate ski trail.  We need over a foot to begin since the snowmobile packs down so much of the snow.  

All members are welcomed to come out and ski or snowshoe on the golf course even though we don't have enough snow to groom, there is enough for you to set your own tracks and explore.

This year I'll be updating my blog daily with grooming times of both trails so create a shortcut/bookmark/favorites on your phone or computer.

We'll see you on the course.

Week Two Grounds Video and a Bonus Workout Video

We are well into week three out on the golf course but I forgot to get it post my week two video on my blog.  Turn up the audio for this week's edition!

It's been a humbling week as the Golf Association of Michigan announced to the industry that I was the recipient of their Superintendent of the Year Award!  A truly amazing honor with a rich history of heavy hitter supers from around this great state.  Thank you to the GAM, to those that nominated me and to all of the wonderful direct responses sent to me, humbling indeed.

Here is a bonus video this week to help with the stay at home order.  Thank you to our fitness trainer Troy and to Marty who produce the video.

Week One Video

With our local law enforcement authorizing five of us in the grounds department to maintain and protect our biggest asset, the golf course, we are hard at it.  

The upgraded Windows 10 came with a decent video editor program that I tried out after our first week of work.  No need having one of my three kids help me every week make the video, I am in the editing game now.  

It's really surreal driving to and from work and going into the grocery store since I am "back to work" from staying home for 14 days after my oldest son had to return from his University of Michigan study abroad program in Costa Rica.  

I think I have more of a guilty surreal feeling because my days are a bit back to normal here at The Club but Sue and the boys and most of the world are still at home.   Stay safe and here is my first shot for an Oscar.
