A Summer Evening Playground

During the summer, a golf course superintendent's job doesn't end everyday until the head hits the pillow.  Evening runs out to the golf course to check soil moisture levels and do a final setup of the irrigation system, especially on the weekends, have become a staple of mine here at GFCC.  While any modern irrigation system now allows the user to check online soil moisture meters and weather stations, and make irrigation adjustments from a laptop at home, our system hasn't quite met the 21st century yet, meaning I still have to go out to the course and do it the old fashioned way.

And what a perfect place to take the kids out to play.  Might as well make the most of a beautiful summer evening back out at "work"....

Apparently filling divots is child's play, its a wonder why
so many get left unfixed though....

Claire decided the bentgrass felt too good on
her little toes, and took her shoes off.

Allie, sporting her new pink hat that I got her at the US Open last week,
hamming it up for my camera on 3 tee.
