Our equipment manager Greg Hand will be leaving us for greener pastures.   He has accepted a new position at the Peninsula Club,  situated just north of Charlotte in North Carolina.  If you are ever in the area stop by and say hello.   Greg will be missed.  He has been a member of our team for the past six years.  There is a knack to being a golf course mechanic.  You need a special set of skills that only comes with years of experience.  We wish the very best for Greg at his new position.

From left to right:   Jay Ruhren,  Greg Hand, and Ted Valentine.  Our winter warriors.  
We received more fill for the 13th tee and stole a few rocks from around the tennis courts to put the finishing touches on the championship tee.   We have the rough grading done.  When things thaw out we can start the fine grading, add irrigation, drainage and then sod.  
Moving rocks from  the tennis courts (they won't be missed ) We needed them to build a wall by the tee.

Placing Rocks to make wall.  This allowed us make the slope next to the tee not too steep.  

You can get an idea from this picture.  Rock wall on right is finished.  We had two extra rocks that we placed  by the path.
