So did you become a course superintendent? Or just like a foreman?
Also I shot a cool 35 (-1) in my work league last night and a 36 at the home club Sunday afternoon when I got out of work!
We fired our Superintendent July 16th. Needed to happen earlier. As VP of the Board of Directors, I am chair of the Grounds & Greens Committee. Our new superintendent won't be on site until the 15th of this month. We've turned the course around with existing staff, volunteers from the membership, and a couple of us Board members. I've been out there early every morning since we let the old super go, assigning tasks for the day... working on the irrigation system, ordering parts, spending hours on mowers, etc. It's been a team effort. So proud to be associated with such a great Board and an awesome membership. In addition to the day to day, I have to have my draft 2023 budget ready for Finance Committee this coming Tuesday. Have that almost done.

Ain't no way, at almost 76 years old I'm looking for a job. The pay for these 10 hour days is ZERO!! But, it's the satisfaction of seeing our course not only survive, but begin to glow again.

Heat pretty well got to me today. Planning on leaving it with the crew, tomorrow, and play with the geezers. Miss the interaction. Of course, those plans could go bad if the irrigation system would hiccup tonight.

We have a 9-member Board of Directors. This is my 5th year and after 2023... I'm done!!! We have worked hard to keep the board diverse between ages and genders. Have two really great ladies on the Board. Good mix of us old farts who have the time to work when needed and the young flatbellies who we need to help build the younger generation part of the membership.

I played in our Club Championship on Saturday. It was off the tips and I got a good steady start, +1 for the first 7 holes. Then the wheels came off, my driver deserted me. Funny how fragile this game is. I limped home in 85 shots. Hate this game sometimes.

No. Btw, I've played half the summer with a new driver and none of you guys have noticed LOL. My trick was I just didn't review it.

41/39 for an 80. Rough around the edges. After this past week, everything I own aches. Limping like a one-legged banshee. Right hip and ankle both hurting. But... could have played much worse. Lost 25 cents.

34 (no bogies and two birds) and 41 (1 bird) for 75. Putting has been unbelieveable. And striping the driver down the middle as long as I can ever remember. Maybe by 80 yrs old I'll be par.

Still about 10 days out from my daily play. Irrigation went down late yesterday afternoon. To the course at 4:30 a.m., wandering around in the dark to find isolation valves. Once got the leak isolated, staff could begin manually running the greens sprinklers. Ordered a plethora of mower parts and, then, mowed rough for a few hours. Was home by noon since it's the wife's birthday.

Played 18 on our Riverside course in 1 hour and 40 mins and shot even. I teed off at 8pm and walked off the 18th as the light faded. 4 birds and 4 bogeys. I actually holed a few putts!!
A stunning evening with zero breeze, we are currently experiencing a heat wave. Life is good

Took the dog for a walk 2 nights ago to our local beach. Gorgeous weather here right now.

You're welcome.
