what did you do besides cut the grass then? If there was no labor or materials involved I'm stumped.

looks to me like the first picture was taken in very early spring when the grass was not growing and the second was taken in mid spring when the grass was growing

Is this a par 3 course? I couldn't imagine mowing much more with just one small mower

yup, very short par3..the first course is about 3 acres...the other course is about4.
Between the two courses there is approx 15000 sq ft of greens. As i said they are small, but are a decent challenge for some fun golf.

I also run a National 68 triplex reel mower, but it is currently under repair, just about ready to go. I use it mainly for the areas surrounding the greens and fairways.

THese golf courses are very unique...it takes about half an hour to play each course,good for short game practice.

Now if i could just learn how to putt.

I am the greens committee.

These are golf courses built on private property mostly for the owners use.

4 years ago these courses were nothing more than fields of grass claiming to be golf courses.
No irrigation. so they are at the mercy of the weather...thats why i keep the cutting heights so high. THey are certainly not usga status.
