  1. Well done. I might add a rule: Understand that the crew is not motivated by the same things you are. While they like seeing the course in good shape, they are trading their time for money and you should try to get them as much of the latter as you can. Regards, Steve
  2. Well done! we’ve been hitting the trails this year every day, except it’s rifle season right now, so that puts a bit of a damper on forest hiking. So, we’re walking the neighborhood until the first of December. im not really all that upset about the isolation, to be honest with you Regards, Steve
  3. Such a tiny part of that whole thing, but when I heard that I was like “what?!” That was great, keep it up!
  4. I just got to this. Man, that’s funny! At a course I used to work at, the marshalls did nothing but ballhawk. They were supposed to pick up trash on their rounds but never did. We would put an empty beer can on a curb next to an old Top Rock and an hour later, the ball would be gone but the can would be standing proud. We took to taking the keys out of their carts and driving away while they were in the woods hunting. It was great sport!

  6. When I was still a superintendent, the club a couple years ago decided to have an all employee Christmas party. All of the waitstaff, kitchen, admin and proshop employees were invited. My assistant and I were also invited but the rest of our staff of over 20 was specifically excluded. we declined to attended. Racism is alive and well at the nations country clubs. steve
  7. Yeah, Wally World is a no go zone for us. Their business model is: 1) sell cheap Chinese shit that won’t hold up. Then sell it to the same person again, cause it’s cheap. 2) don’t pay a living wage so our workers are on food stamps. The American taxpayer gets to subsidize wAlmart. brilliant!
  8. You’re a smart man, Randy. It’s amazing how we’ve outsourced our economy to a communist country that beats us over the head economically with slave labor so that a few American billionaires can make more money. I try to never buy anything from China, it’s impossible to do.
  9. Yeah, you may be on to something, but my children only respond to text messages, they think that when I call them, I’m being rude.
  10. Also, just wondering, is that phone steam or coal fired?
