What a difference a week makes

My dad wanted to see the changes in the course so I decided to take a picture of the course from the same location each week. We had some good and bad weather this week, but a lot of snow melted. We got the snow cleared off almost all of the greens, only the 8th green still has snow on it because it was too deep to remove with the snowblower. Tomorrow is the first day with the new crew so we will start training tomorrow. I think all we will be doing for the next week or so is clean up vole damage. It is supposed to rain tomorrow, so hopefully we can get something accomplished.

More Snow in Park City

We have recently been removing the snow off the greens and the cart paths. The picture below is the 1st green. We have removed the snow off #1, 15, and two putting greens. In some areas the snow hass formed drifts up to 2.5 ft high. We are also clearing off the cart paths so we can get to all the greens. In the pictures below the snow was about 4 feet deep and the walls created by the backhoe were about 6 ft tall. They are forecasting nicer weather for friday and the weekend, so we will be getting all the snow off the course we can in the next few days.

Today was unofficially my first day of work. I went down to Park City to check in at work and try to locate a place to live. Everyone that I needed to meet with was on vacation so I got the royal tour from the individual that I am replacing. He was a very nice guy and I enjoyed the tour.
I did get a picture of the snow covered course. I think the weather will warm up soon and we will be out working in the near future.
