The Willamette Falls are just about as high as I have seen it. Not quite the level of 1996 but still pretty impressive. If you get a chance be sure to drive down there and get a first hand look. I didn't get any pictures of Beaver Creek but if you like to walk the trail you will be in for a good sight as well.
Last week Chris spent two days at the Toro Site Pro Training Seminar at Skamania Lodge. This week is the annual crew seminar hosted by the Oregon GCSA. This has always been a favorite event for the guys, a chance to break up the winter season and listen to some great speakers.
We have our new driving range signs completed and are ready for the new season. We had these 12x12 inch signs made at our local sign shop and we mounted them on the Standard Golf sign posts. I have had a lot of favorable comments on them from fellow superintendents but now the trick will be to educate our golfers. I don't expect this sign to do it all, it is going to take a team effort on everyone's behalf to help the players learn.
To The Crew at the Stone Creek Golf Club,
I walk the golf course almost every day and am very grateful to all of you working there. I especially appreciative of how fast you took care of the problems with the walking trail daily and especially this week. I am, also, sure the golfers appreciate what a great job you do on the course. It is very gratifying to know how dedicated you are serving the public, especially during these tough economic times. You deserve to be commended by us county residents a lot more.
