THE COURSES BOOK A TEE TIME A lot of planning and schedul- ing goes into every day, and there are times we need to make modifi- cations to ensure we get every- thing done that needs to get done. For the most part, during the first few hours of the morning, we spend time preparing the courses. Here is a little insight to what we do during that time: > Every morning we hold brief meetings to discuss the schedules and explain in detail what we are planning to do for the day. Once that is done, the staff heads out to begin the process. > The holes are changed and the greens are mowed every day, the tees and fairways are mowed three times per week and the rough on the Celebrity Course is continu- ously mowed during the week. > We also have to prepare the sand traps and keep them looking nice. They are touched up on a daily basis and fully raked two- three times per week. This is quite a daily task for the morning prep, and usually there are other things that pop up, or need to be ad- dressed, prior to the first tee times. > Once those jobs are complete, we focus our efforts on "second jobs," which could be anything from cleaning flower beds and landscape areas to mowing the driving range or Shots in the Night greens. With such a large facility, we keep busy nonstop everyday with things to work on. It's challenging, but when we put forth the effort and we see such a nice product, all the hard work is worth it. The payoff is that the golf courses are both in great shape and every season we look forward to this time of year because all of our overseeding efforts are real- ized, and the golf courses begin to shine. It's a great time to come out and play golf. We look forward to see- ing everyone on the courses and enjoying the beauty of Indian Wells Golf Resort.
