Update: Working The Golf Course In The Off-Season

This is an update as of 28 February 2020 on what Jeff and Craig were doing in the picture below: Well, with the crazy weather this winter, knowing we’ve had severe freeze thaw cycles trying to get a handle on how much ice is under the snow. And how and when we can remove it…

If you have ever wondered what happens at the golf course in the off-season, you should take a short trip to see your GM and Superintendent right about now! I try to keep tabs on the Osprey Links team when winter sets in because I always find out interesting things about what they do in the winter to make my upcoming golf season a success.

I know that running a golf course is a year around job. Even though we have three feet of white greatness on the ground, there still has to be maintenance done to ensure that when the snow goes away, the course is up and running.

We have had some great weather over the past few days and because of that they have an opportunity to move some snow. I have heard that they also try to remove snow off the greens. I am not exactly sure why they do this, but rest assured I will find out and up date you. But for now….

For now, thanks Jeff and Craig for working on the course in the snow. They make a great team and I am grateful to be part of the Osprey Links golfing family.

I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!

  1. Great insight, Jim. I suspect many golfers, myself included, take the hard working men and women for granted at times at our courses. The year round efforts help ensure that our golfing experiences are quality and seamless – on and off the course. I have sent brief messages to the head greenkeeper in the past; a quick note of thanks for subtle but important improvements or just overall conditioning. Insight into the scope of responsibilities and the true year round aspect of their work would be enlightening for many of us. Thanks for writing. Won’t be long now…only a couple months away!
    Cheers, Mike
