The other day as I walked around the school, I saw Mr. Benson staring out the window towards hole 3. “You can start to see grass!”, he whispered. And indeed, there were some greenish patches signifying the beginning of the season was near.
We have a new face on our staff. WE are very pleased to welcome Danny Poquette as our new OGC Superintendent. Danny brings a lot of experience from being the assistant superintendent at the Minnewaska GC in Glenwood. You might even see him driving our new John Deere 2038 mower or taking care of one of the greens on the greens roller we purchased last year.
As I write this on February 15, I am hoping to be able to host the March 15th annual Meeting in the clubhouse. WE had three hoses burst in the women’s bathroom, sending water all over the floor. We hope the new carpet and repairs will be completed before the meeting so everyone can see it.
I hope everyone is excited for the opening of the course and once again coming together to enjoy some quality time with friends and family on the one of the best 9-hole courses in Minnesota.
Jim Menton, President
