Just a quick blog with some photos tonight. The last day before the opening round of the BMW NZ Open was a long one. Work went from 5:30am to 7:45pm. A long day for all, but the last bits of the course were cleaned up. After mowing collars in the morning I helped finish filling divots on fairways, then worked on the range water race cleaning that up and finally cut down some willows growing on number five pond. One of the reasons for the practice day is to have any problems or issues fixed. For example I am on tees in the afternoon with Craig and Shutters. Craig and I are paired up using the Jacobsen Eclipse mowers. On the second hoe mowing Craig's mower broke down. Lucky it happened today and not tomorrow or another night to lengthen out the evening session. Morning are provided by PGG Wrightson.
