It’s that time again. As the weather gets warmer the golf season begins to heat up. Here at Walden we have taken every precaution to ensure your greens are always up to par.
Greenskeeper, Ron Skok, has been working this winter to prepare for the busy season ahead. With the help of a crew that varies from 7-24 people, Skok has scrutinized all of the equipment used in golf course maintenance for necessary repairs. This means tune-ups, fluid changes, brake checks, hydraulic hose check and other modifications to make existing equipment more efficient.
Another very important precaution Skok and his crew took this year was to sharpen all of the bed knives and reels on the mowers. This is done so that the knives will cut instead of tear the grass when mowing. Torn grass leads to injured and disease prone turf, a situation Walden is taking every step to avoid.
As if that wasn’t enough, this crew has also scoured the course and removed dead trees and leaves and refurbished all of the tee markers, ball washers, water coolers and outdoor furniture.
This keen eye for class and detail is what has allowed the Golf Course at Walden to be deemed one of Ohio’s most prestigious courses. Gather up the gang and experience the beauty of this course firsthand. At this time everything is in full swing. By March 18th of this year the temporary greens were removed and the pins were placed back in the permanent greens.
Don’t miss our first event on April 16th! It is a two man scramble with only two clubs!
