Capital Equipment Purchase

Besides the driving range tee project this spring, the board approved the capital purchase of a new rough mower.  After lots of equipment testing from our big three equipment suppliers this spring, we chose the Toro.  This machine is replacing a 19 year old Kubota tractor which pulled the 17 year old PTO drive Bushhog rough mower.  We did a major renovation on the rough mower about 7 years ago, so we certainly got our useful life out of it.

With the combined breakdowns of both units, we rarely went a week the past few years without issues.  These breakdowns certainly caused the conditions of our rough to be very inconsistent.  Thanks to the board and to all of you for supporting the capital dues assessment.
