This year was my fourth year volunteering and it was made even better by my good friend Gary Weller of Council Fire Golf Club, who I worked for for several years, join me in the fun. Everyone works hard but we still have a great time.
I have always loved being on a golf course early in the morning when the sun is rising and being at East Lake early is no different. Everything is so well maintained and manicured, it is just amazing to see in person.
Here is an early morning shot of the bunker raking crew getting a tutorial on how to properly rake bunkers the way the Tour officials want them done.
This is a close up picture of some of the turfgrass mowed at East Lake. If you think it is a picture of a putting surface you would be incorrect. This is the fine cut of the fairway grass following the afternoon cut. So sweet!!!
My last job for this year at East Lake was to put, what I think are some of the coolest tee markers in golf today, out. What better way to brand the tournament than with these great tee markers.
Thanks again to the East Lake Agronomy Staff!!!
See you next year!!!
