The unseasonal warm temperatures are nice, but I've had to call in help earlier than planned. Here, Juan is cleaning up willow branches that fell over the winter. Juan has worked at Lansing since 2008.
Here is Mike Ogorek doing his annual lake clean up. He makes piles that my staff will remove this week.
Here I'm checking to make sure all sprinklers are working. I normally turn on the irrigation system around April 1. I've already watered greens and tees and will water fairways later this week if we don't get rain. This year we had 2 sprinkler that needed to be fixed. The system is now 10 years old and we should expect to see more problems. Jose is very good at fixing any sprinkler issues.
