January 17, 2022 Update

Sunshine and warmer temps, coupled with some large deliveries for the golf course renovation means we have a lot to be excited about this week.

Looking at containers full of our new irrigation system, makes the countless breaks we have a week slightly more palatable. For reference, this fall we had 67 pipe breaks or broken irrigation heads during the 3 week overseed closure. That trend has continued, so our irrigators and I cannot wait to see this new system through.

We, like the rest of the world are struggling with current labor market. We are short staffed and the staff we do have is tired. Many volunteer to come in on their days off to catch up in areas we are behind. They are doing their best, but we are aware that the golf course has seen some shortfalls due to this shortage. Management, in conjunction with the board of directors, are strategizing how we ensure to come out of the renovation project, staffed full with capable employees. I’m confident we will find a solution.

In the meantime, if you feel so inclined, please show your appreciation to the staff that is here! Feeling seen and appreciated may just be the extra motivation they need to push through that last hour of the day!

As always, please reach out with any questions, comments, or concerns! Have a great week Terravita!
