With some of the snow melting on the golf course the resumption of installing sand in the bunkers can continue.

Safety training day for Whitemarsh personel.

Twenty Whitemarsh employees attended an all day safety training seminar on Wednesday Feb 19th. This type of training is essential for the employees to be able to act quickly in case of an injury or accident or heart attack.
There were three phases of training which included First aid, CPR and the use of an AED.
Hopefully, we will never have to use this education but if needed there will be someone on site to respond.

Main parking lot at 11:00 am Thursday.

Grounds department employees came in early this morning (4:30am) to get a jump on and stay ahead of the snow storm that we are experiencing. This was the view at 11:00am during a hiatus of the snow fall. Forecasters are telling us that there will be sleet and rain this afternoon and maybe another 4" of snow this evening. This clean up was made possible with the proper equipment. (Dump truck with plow, front end loader, skid loader and large capacity snow blower). And also dedicated employees: (Jerry Stockmal, Jim Dennisson, John Fleming, Gary Farrer and Doug Miller).

How do you know when the winter is going longer than expected?

The answer to this question is......When you start hauling sand to newly built bunkers that still have 6 inches of snow in them. Hopefully the snow under the newly installed sand will melt soon and we will be able to tamp and smooth the sand. Another reason why we are doing this is because the ground is frozen with some snow on top which reduces the potential damage from hauling the sand to the bunker. This may look funny but it is a small part of the projects success story!
