Vision 2020 Blog Link



Before our Vision 2020 projects this photo would have given me great stress but now that I am almost through the biggest renovation year in my career, it gives me great peace.  Our putting green bentgrass seed germinated in 6 short days and it feels like I am a proud new parent!  Member reviews on the new 1st tee have been fabulous as we have been opening it up on weekends when the construction crews are not around.  We laid down 7 pallets of sod between the 18th green and the putting green so we are really getting that final look feeling.

My last "Steve Blog" post was in March looking for employees and just like that it's early October.  Here is a link to my construction blog if you want to review our projects which started back in August of 2018.  Hoping for a mild October and November to finish up our construction around the 1st tee complex.

Winter Reflections


Winter is moving along at a snail's pace it feels like.  December always flies by and January has a solid pace too.  Attending my state turf conference in Lansing each year and the Golf Industry Show in San Diego were excellent, it's an honor to attend these 1st class, professional events.  The education, networking and the golf tournament at the GIS all keep my golf course business on a continuous improvement program.  

Keeping up with and staying ahead of changing trends takes determination, passion and financial resources.  Take a look at Kodak, Sears, Blockbuster, Toys R Us and Radio Shack.  Every business needs to make changes or you'll fall behind and it can happen quickly in this business.  I'll take this snail's pace time as I always do and continue making changes to my 2019 season as this is sure to be the busiest year in my career.

Check out this Vision 2020 link to see all of the progress on our pool house and three pools during the winter months.

Renovations Have Started and my Two Favorites


 The two projects that I am the most excited about are expanding the 8th green back to its near original size and building two indoor golf simulators that will be installed in the expanded 19th hole.
Here is a sample of what we'll be building.  Our ceiling size won't have that additional space above the stations like this rendering though.  Diane, Scott and I toured many facilities in Grand Rapids last week and stopped at the Michigan Golf Hall of Fame facility being built at Ferris State University.  


The Michigan Hall of Fame at Ferris State University is planning to have five indoor Trackman simulators and three indoor simulators that you hit to the outdoor range.
