So I had three meetings in the last two days and now I have work for the balance of the month and probably early into February too. This is very unusual for me. I normally hibernate all winter and spend time playing hockey and running the kids everywhere (think Mr. Mom).
On Tuesday I was hired by North Halton in Georgetown. The first task is to help them add a new irrigation pond to their property. That work will start immediately as they seek a final concept and a path forward to get the pond done this year. North Halton is a wonderful course set on some excellent rolling terrain featuring some great holes in the Black Creek valley. In the long term I hope to put together a Master Plan and begin the process of improving grassing lines, look at some tree removal and a eventually work on a bunker renovation.On Wednesday morning I went out to Cedar Brae. We have the 3rd hole almost done with a few weeks left of work to do in the early spring. We are going forward with the renovation of another four holes from the Master Plan. This involves all the bunkers, quite a bit of tree removal and some tee and cart path work too. The work is going to take place in the spring which means the working drawings and tender are required immediately.

Wednesday afternoon took me to Oakdale where we need to put together a presentation for the membership and present a series of options to address the club’s concern on one particular issue. I won’t go into specifics of the project, but there are multiple ways to address this issue and the only way to move forward is by taking this to the members. There will be a lot of imagery work required and quite a bit of time getting this all put together in an easy to understand presentation. When you throw in tree work and a couple of small construction drawings I need to also get done, this all adds up to quite a bit of work.
Hibernation just ended on the January 10th and I’m excited to get back to work. The only negative is that just shut down working on the book for the next 6 weeks and pretty much assures that the book project will not happen this winter. I’ll continue to plug away, but not full time. Work always comes first.
