Staff and Lightning

2014 Lansing Country Club Grounds Staff.

Alex is in his third year at Lansing.  Due to a promotion at his day job at Aurelios, he is now part time mostly changing cups, filling divots and generally what ever is needed that day.  He on occasion brings in a pizza for the crew.  Thanks Alex.

Jake is a late season addition to the staff.  Hopefully, he can work into late September.  He does all of the rookie jobs including greens, bunkers and weed whipping.

You might know Josh as a busser or from the pro shop.  We should just call him "slash".  He added grounds crew to his check this year.  He worked twice a week for us and learned to mow greens quickly.  He also raked bunkers and got to know how to run a weed whip.  He's off to North Park College in Chicago next week.  Good luck Josh.

The locust tree at the start of the 2nd fairway was struck by lightning a couple of weeks ago.  It will need to be removed.  Though its not on my list of quality trees for a golf course, it was in a great location protecting golfers on the 6th hole.  This is why you should go to the pro shop or course shelters during unexpected storms.

The first of the tree stumps that were seeded is coming along.  It gets hit with irrigation when we water the fairways.
