Un-Retired …..Again!
« on: Jun 08, 2021, 11:44 AM »
Decided to go work at a local country club. My son is my new boss. I’ll be mowing greens, approaches and such. 3 days a week 4-5 hours a day. It’ll be good working with him. Been years since we worked together.

Should be fun.

Well, at least I won’t have to buy golf balls. Think we picked up half a dozen just driving the course.

  Don't forget those  water hazards .....fish, gulf balls, maybe carp!

Well, the whole course is a swamp . I’ve fished the main ponds more times than I can count. Years back the DEC killed the main ponds to rid them of grass carp. Don’t know what’s left except bullhead.

No matter. I’m only there to mow greens and aprons. Maybe tees if I get bored.

Sounds like the ideal retirement part time job. Working with your son and outdoors, great combo.

First day…..I like it! Mowed approaches, fringe and the driving range tee. Good bunch of guys. Several my age(old farts).

My son is a busy guy on that course.

I love this job! Jump on a mower and go. Nobody bothers me at all. No overhead pages “Special assistance needed in aisle 13”.  (Don’t miss that one little bit)

We had an early start this morning. Tournament today. I was mowing at 5:30. Done in 3 hours. My Son was a bit frantic because the Greens guys got lost somewhere. As I was leaving he was headed out on a Greens mower. He takes his work seriously and really wants the course to look…..not just good, but, GREAT!

I’m sure he’ll have me mowing greens soon.
