Each month our employees have an opportunity to nominate other team members for Employee of the Month. Our President, Bill Parlberg and I invite each of them to lunch as a way of personally congratulating them and to get to know them a little better.
Last month, Nick Worley, one of our maintenance crew that keeps The Fortress in such great shape, was one that received the designation. During lunch I asked him what his particular duties had been and he said that he was working on maintaining the bunkers. I asked him if he knew how many bunkers we had and without hesitation said, “Seventy; 30 on the front, 39 on the back and 1 practice.” He went on to say that he knows each and every bunker on each and every hole of the course. I didn’t doubt him. Maintaining a golf course is a big job and keeping the bunkers in top shape is as important as tees, greens and fairways.
While we have had a great golf season so far this year, there is a lot of golf yet to be played. The months of September and October are perfect for golf as the days turn cooler and the colors of autumn begin.
If you’re not ready to put the clubs away, please check our website for late summer, early fall golf specials. And if you happen to find yourself in one of our 70 well maintained bunkers; think of Nick.
