Winter Work: Course Accessories

As we continue to take a look at the number of things that keep maintenance crews busy during the winter months, refurbishing course accessories takes a significant portion of our time.  This work is typically done when the course is covered in snow, or during frost delays that prevent us from working on other projects outside.

Amongst the items that are refurbished are ball washers, flag sticks and cups, yardage markers, tee markers, traffic control stakes, water cooler houses, tee caddies, directional signs, benches, bunker rakes, trash cans, and the list goes on!

So when you think that those maintenance guys couldn't possibly be THAT busy during the winter, rest assured that we are working just as hard as we do during the rest of the year trying to take care of this type of work that can't be readily accomplished during the season when all these accessories are in use and needed on the course!
