Winter Work

 

Grind

Members often ask us what we do in the winter months at the Turf Care Center.  In response, I have decided to dedicate the next few blog posts to highlight some of the things we do to prepare for the next golf season.

One of the many jobs our mechanic, Don Fort, is responsible for is servicing and sharpening all of the mowing equipment. 

The first photo is of the worktable where the small mowers are serviced, the reel grinder is in the background.

The second photo is a close-up of the grinder being used to sharpen the blades of a reel to a scissor sharp edge.  A sharp reel is imperative for a clean crisp cut helping us provide the best possible playing surfaces for our members and guests.
