very shut down until January 1 We got to sell

Unknown Speaker 0:12
and then we were closed January February the entire month before the point is to build a guessing game. I look at the shoulder seasons as

Unknown Speaker 0:21
you begin opening is that a good play that’s kind of a bonus

Unknown Speaker 0:27
feature and I think that’s how it’s been rejected in the past you could look back at all of these since I’ve been here and you’re 10 years

Unknown Speaker 0:36
project something you know like we share we projected the small revenues for January and February we got to zero yeah it’s generally a sell amount for whatever

Unknown Speaker 0:54
you want to call the

Unknown Speaker 0:58
hearings okay.

Unknown Speaker 1:02
Okay for Gordon gonna rattle off a piece of Oh, yeah.

Twin Peaks actual rounds for the month of October

Unknown Speaker 2:00

Unknown Speaker 2:07
I remember whatever just trying to get to 35,000 for the years would be Snell

Unknown Speaker 2:17
and then for you creeks rounds,

Unknown Speaker 2:20
actual rounds your data 40,200 48,600 video on rounds are way ahead and revenues

Unknown Speaker 2:29
race views and through the categories we’re doing very well and

Unknown Speaker 2:34
I ran the numbers for November as well. And we’ve been open nine days this 117 days and 21 We’re down on 42,000 so far

Unknown Speaker 2:49
but on a good note if we get open this weekend we will meet last year’s numbers which was a record year which is one point I was 1.90

Unknown Speaker 3:03
Just a few more days to be an open we were going to set it up here what’s the course look like so about gone or

Unknown Speaker 3:12
you know I keep opening and walking etc. And I’m gonna go Wednesday now.

Unknown Speaker 3:19
Now we’re talking about via

Unknown Speaker 3:22
it’s there’s not a lot of them but what we do have this keeps freezing over.

Unknown Speaker 3:28
So we’re open for private

Unknown Speaker 3:32
comments, etc.

Unknown Speaker 3:37
Moving on all business

Unknown Speaker 3:42

Unknown Speaker 3:44
You want to talk about irrigation first.

Unknown Speaker 3:48
Again, okay.

Unknown Speaker 3:51

Unknown Speaker 3:53
remember how we left it out last night and

Unknown Speaker 3:57
now we are working on about originally merging into QuickBooks and irrigation system and got changed here just the farm station this year. And now

Unknown Speaker 4:08
several months yeah, change that. Now we’re gonna do Twin Peaks and sunsets, irrigation replacements scheduled for Fall starting fall of 23. As it sits right now we have

Unknown Speaker 4:22
our sections for the repurchasing, they’ll be working on it, they put it into a format. And don’t forget about the bed here as soon as possible.

Unknown Speaker 4:35
What’s your projected completion?

Unknown Speaker 4:38
So blue peaks is projected to start just after Labor Day in 23. And puppy dogs in March are hosting in June after June 24. So that’s the way to do it. A little bit of work in the fall home stations over the winter and finishing up you

Unknown Speaker 5:00
2.4 As in the sunset would either fall right behind that it started in June, or in right after Labor Day going forward, it’s all dependent on the water project that’s going on now, and we can’t start our project till they’re done. And then that one is projected to take September, that would be done by the end of the year. Or if it started in June, it’d be done by Labor Day, October, a

Unknown Speaker 5:31
lot of people playing,

Unknown Speaker 5:35
we have to close the course notes.

Unknown Speaker 5:37
Or try not to close the course, they’ll definitely be places impacted by the project. But it’s gonna work kind of like road construction, where we’ll be in one spot and move around. And they’ll just be small parts of the course impacted at the time to get it done.

Unknown Speaker 5:55
So all that plan is dependent on the availability of all the companies that showed interest in

Unknown Speaker 6:02
something like that. So is it mostly boring that they’re doing trenching, it’s gonna be a little bit of both. So our main lines will be dug into the backdoor treasure, because there’ll be

Unknown Speaker 6:17
six to eight inch lines at sunset and or other potential lines here at Twin Peaks and will be 48 inches down. And then all our lateral lines with the heads attached will will be pulled or trench depending on what the trend looks like.

Unknown Speaker 6:35
So that’ll dictate how much the course is.

Unknown Speaker 6:40
Close to

Unknown Speaker 6:42
the artist, that would be the part that has the biggest impact, because that’s the part they have to trench or dig in. For the laterals, region HDPE pipe, so they’ll have fused together long stretches a home. And then the whole long stretch in and it’s a real boring like to do you have the

Unknown Speaker 7:01
optics and stuff like that reporting system. Yeah, that will do that. So be a mixture of that open trench

Unknown Speaker 7:09
or the trade was like we’re working out from

Unknown Speaker 7:16
the maintenance building, we have

Unknown Speaker 7:19
completed our second summit over to the design review team. We have just a few minor things that have to be addressed with with them. We’ve also submitted to the planning department for the permit, meds probably three months before we can get that done. And then we’ll be ready to

Unknown Speaker 7:46
work with the city wide award contractors so that we won’t have to go to a bit of trouble get as many quotes as we can from those four companies to do the construction.

Unknown Speaker 8:00
We’re hoping that that can take place starting in February. Because if if we don’t start construction by March 15. There’s some wildlife issues that prohibit us from moving forward until August after August.

Unknown Speaker 8:18
So we’re hoping to get the earthworm going so that we’re already in in process before some of the birds come back.

Unknown Speaker 8:31

Unknown Speaker 8:37

Unknown Speaker 8:39
Brian, anything. Yes, that’s a presentation he’s going to do.

Unknown Speaker 9:07
All right, so you’re in a sunset presentation.

Unknown Speaker 9:12
Very similar to the Twin Peaks and new Creek presentations we had earlier at our last meeting.

Unknown Speaker 9:22
So start off with a update on the projects we did this year.

Unknown Speaker 9:28
So our main projects we did over at Sosa’s sunset this year was renovation on a couple of boxes. So it started here with number nine, back to the box

Unknown Speaker 9:41
where the picture of the old box here up in the middle and you can kind of see it from the pitcher. But the main point of the reservation. renovation was the take the crown has been in there caused by years and years of use and topdressing

Unknown Speaker 10:01
Then over here, here’s what it was the finish workout. So you can see kind of here, this front corner of the tee box, that’s how much elevation they change on to that tee box, make it level, so added about two and a half feet in this front corner, so that will be at the northwest corner of the box. And also on the back side here by the pump station, they ended up adding another four feet of key box that was flat, so we gain a whole lot more tea area.

Unknown Speaker 10:35
What we have down here in the middle, was a picture of when it was completed on May 27 of this year.

Unknown Speaker 10:45
So pretty big difference there on that tee box, but not as big as

Unknown Speaker 10:55
number five with dogs.

Unknown Speaker 10:57
So number five, was it one of the larger projects or made the most difference than before and after this one with all peeping out the house and crown, we also decided to make it one larger key box instead of having to separate one from the back. So what they ended up the company ended up doing was

Unknown Speaker 11:21
moving about 18 inches of soil off the back of the box, which was the blue one, and leveling it out with the white box that was previously there, which also allowed them to add about five, four or five feet for the very front of the box.

Unknown Speaker 11:40
So between

Unknown Speaker 11:42
now here in the building, you can see the flat work they did, you can kind of tell by this picture, the difference of elevations they get that

Unknown Speaker 11:51
level of out. So that back to the box, we need about 1400 square feet of key space than what we originally thought we’re going to have. So we had a pretty good

Unknown Speaker 12:04
increase in usable key airpower on the back key.

Unknown Speaker 12:09
And then here’s a picture in the lower right of the direction that Assad was later we’re putting this project was done on June. And

Unknown Speaker 12:20
so that’s just the white Blinky box,

Unknown Speaker 12:25
the next one that was done.

Unknown Speaker 12:31
We also did the Ford keys on number five.

Unknown Speaker 12:36
So this one here had an awful lot of crown in it a lot like the car number nine. But once they got everything stripped down, we’re actually able to add another four feet to the front and four feet to the back of the box or keep it the same width, which also gave us about 1400 square feet of usable key area on the forward key on five.

Unknown Speaker 13:02
So middle picture here shows their dirt work

Unknown Speaker 13:10
their work when they got it done, and CB was 400 square feet. So not 1400

Unknown Speaker 13:17
So then here on the right is a picture of the key once it is completed or growing. And this was appeared on the student Anthony. Now all these CDs were thrown in for cut back out to their T shape. And now for the programming part of the course now you can still see a few of the transition areas out there to some of the differences Assad has laid by

Unknown Speaker 13:44
now everything is grown in and ready to be used for me sure Ryan will

Unknown Speaker 13:50
read that Danbury thing but positive feedback from all the tea boxes

Unknown Speaker 13:57
spent a night they can

Unknown Speaker 14:00
restructure that the overall policy is really to have a lot of lie a lot of a lot of players that are more confused at first, but you know it’s been nothing but positive feedback on

Unknown Speaker 14:17
building project will be completed at first part of

Unknown Speaker 14:21
quality was that new roof put on the maintenance shop here is kind of

Unknown Speaker 14:29
the sign for a new roof on the bait shop. So that was one of the things we got done this year.

Unknown Speaker 14:37
But in that was a much bigger project and

Unknown Speaker 14:45
there were some pretty significant issues there. And I think we might able being able to replace that roof that extended the life of that building because we were given notice

Unknown Speaker 15:00
said if we can do something we needed to get out of it. And so

Unknown Speaker 15:06
they did a really nice job. And things are much better than they had been

Unknown Speaker 15:13
years ago, yes.

Unknown Speaker 15:19

Unknown Speaker 15:21
I gave an update a little bit ago on Sunset or spoke about that bond project. So this was the this is the first map I received from our designer, he’s still in the process of finishing that sunset design with numbering not all the stations.

Unknown Speaker 15:40
But this is the new design of the irrigation system over at sunset. So right now some set aside, but where the clubhouse is and the South side on the other side amongst the community launching a third two separate non connected irrigation system, the new design will connect the system to the one irrigation system with

Unknown Speaker 16:09
high water means long steep here right by two green in three P. So instead of having two separate irrigation systems with 20 different personalities, that would be one complete irrigation system with the same pump stations with a newer pump station with the same age.

Unknown Speaker 16:31
So let’s hear for that all the put all the head spacing the 65 feet, and right now they range anywhere from 60 to 65 or 70 feet. So this will be a lot more uniform.

Unknown Speaker 16:45
That we have lead to a line which is the dark line that goes around both areas so that way, the irrigation pressure will be more consistent because we’ll be multiple ways the water fed to a certain area, you will see less change in pressure down here from three green on top of the hill by 670. So

Unknown Speaker 17:09
to see a lot more consistent watering pattern

Unknown Speaker 17:14
irrigation system we currently have over

Unknown Speaker 17:17
a question Yeah.

Unknown Speaker 17:21
The heads 50% of that where you put it in the distance to the

Unknown Speaker 17:27
chains are new, which are not stated or so the system at sunset will be brand new pipe but all the heads will be reused over there. And he’s talking about Dr.

Unknown Speaker 17:43
Garber workers, and then they put their hands. Yeah, once the project is completed is when you guys will be doing the

Unknown Speaker 17:51
project is put on the bid.

Unknown Speaker 17:54
But it all depends on how much and it’s one of the line items on there. So it is included to be the sprinkler heads, we’ll make sure that we get.

Unknown Speaker 18:18
Looking forward to 23 is the few items we’re going to

Unknown Speaker 18:23
look at during during our fixed asset inventory. So replacing items around the golf course that will lead could be anywhere from appliances at the clubhouse or small hand tools or other pieces of equipment around the maintenance shop. Work on broken fence posts about remember, of course, that just like this year,

Unknown Speaker 18:45
you’re gonna have to come out of winter seed into areas that we can see come out of winter. So going into 23 and 24. We won’t be doing anything projects on the golf course this since it’ll be disrupted with construction. So we will be doing a car pass and made major renovation projects until after the water project and irrigation system are put in so that way we don’t end up destroyed all the work we just got done.

Unknown Speaker 19:18
Do you go in and you look at the ball washers

Unknown Speaker 19:23

Unknown Speaker 19:24
that the sand sustains. We do that for

Unknown Speaker 19:29
as needed basis when they get worn out, or we noticed that something needs attention. How do you just need to get it off? Certainly How do you maintain those because that sometimes will be hard and one of the times we’ll be setting another intervening system see that just sort of the middle of the summer. It’s kind of hard with the evaporation. But that something was between the maintenance crew and the marshals out there. Somebody goes around and fills the Balkan checks on you

Unknown Speaker 20:00
It’s mostly we’re finding the basis

Unknown Speaker 20:03
sometimes it probably gets forgotten that’s where they get a little dry weather

Unknown Speaker 20:10
Do you think ball washers are necessary? Unfortunately they are

Unknown Speaker 20:16
everywhere else well especially when you get the rain in here with the muddy ball so it’s I think what towel but one problem is is that you’re playing if you’re at a place to get water to schoolers in this world that’s fine but

Unknown Speaker 20:37
if you have one tall that’s why he was

Unknown Speaker 20:41
so because it’s too hard to remember to get into the ball washer

Unknown Speaker 20:46
whatever always

Unknown Speaker 20:57
we maintain we had this year was 100 Year party over there at sunset to ensure that our last few years just a few pictures of that evening or less before everyone showed up on the right as we went down we’re because we’re all enjoying the sunset at sunset and

Unknown Speaker 21:20
then that picture does not represent like because everybody was hugging to tree Yeah, I was amazed how will you get that cleaned up? I played the next day in your lunch and o’clock morning or something man even know what that is you’ve been there forever EAT ME

Unknown Speaker 21:40
random Mr credible and somewhere besides that everyone did a really good job of picking up retailers and currently found any trash warning effort on the night off so we’re picking up

Unknown Speaker 21:58
in the middle here going into some course conditions at sunset this was my presentation was supposed to come in October so

Unknown Speaker 22:09
all this stuff we aerated on September 7. So by now everything at some sense healed up

Unknown Speaker 22:16
no sign of aeration we we did it two months ago sorry. So we’ll be on the schedule again for

Unknown Speaker 22:27
fall. I mean not fall spring of next year probably somewhere mid April.

Unknown Speaker 22:35
I think after this you can ask

Unknown Speaker 22:39
these hielden really quick not too much

Unknown Speaker 22:42
side of aeration vary more than a week and a half

Unknown Speaker 22:47
imagination but I thought the Greens it since it was incredible this year. I feel a lot better. I’ve I’ve heard that a lot from a lot of people coming and going.

Unknown Speaker 23:01
Brian did aeration on the seventh there

Unknown Speaker 23:06
was it like three days later even I went out on the playground on the on the practice area. I have a daughter with me at the time so I had her hair on this roll a few putts. I couldn’t tell that there was aberrations done. And I honestly thought they were the fastest that then all year to right after this. And I mean, as a player, I was completely blown away or weren’t happy with it. As a head professional. I’m extremely ecstatic about it like your customers saying.

Unknown Speaker 23:37
Greens has been fantastic.

Unknown Speaker 23:40
That’s the pride and joy really of all the golf courses. Those are those are our children. Of course we can’t bear that we don’t have the green we don’t have anybody.

Unknown Speaker 23:55
Right now here’s us. Here’s kind of a little schedule of what we’ve been doing to get ready for the future.

Unknown Speaker 24:02
Which we did another slight little bending or little tiny. It was first part October just to help increase the airflow on the Greens helped dry him out a little more. We’ve been

Unknown Speaker 24:15
all the monitoring, compaction we do with the rolling and everything throughout the year definitely takes us through a lot of greens which are side of it we see as a black bear, which is when you cut to cut brighter beneath the

Unknown Speaker 24:30
root zone of grass. There’s a little bit of black organic material that builds up through the year. So putting some holes in the green to get some air moving down helps reduce that so we’re a little wetter going into winter and getting ready for the spring.

Unknown Speaker 24:48
But that was the fertilizer just after that that helped him a little get a little healthier going into the winter.

Unknown Speaker 24:56
This year or at sunset, you’re able to aerate

Unknown Speaker 25:00

Unknown Speaker 25:01
the entire golf course area, the greens area, these surrounds the fairway roaches were able to use the attractor amount of iterator from Twin Peaks here to do sunsets and we’re able to do half inch tines four to five inches deep on all the fairways. And then also afterwards, they are able to take we have what’s called an airway that takes little quarter inch wide by five inch long knives that you drive around this kind of slips everywhere, and we’re able to hit course again, just to help increase the airflow and get ready for some moisture from winter.

Unknown Speaker 25:42
The ballparks here right now we’re kind of waiting on what mother nature allows us to do. We were scheduled to do our bulk fertilizer app last Tuesday for our little impromptu snowstorm. And that changed that plan. And we’re supposed to go again tomorrow, but it must be melting off we’re on the schedule again for next week.

Unknown Speaker 26:03
We’ll see how it goes and then

Unknown Speaker 26:06
we’ll be waiting for the grease to clear off to fly plus one last dose fungicide tool to help for snow mold. So if we do end up having a another spring like we did this year where the greens are covered for an extended period of time you won’t have to worry about any disease or fungus wanting to grow underneath there which helps us fight a little tighter the Greens come a lot better out in the spring and if we don’t do it

Unknown Speaker 26:38
in front of hearings is that small group of a small group of guys and we’re gonna do that sunset

Unknown Speaker 26:46
review from Danny who’s our one full time guy over here and the rest of the wealth temporary guys that work over there so

Unknown Speaker 26:54
between all of them and myself and mechanic that’s what’s his time to do here and sunset to make sunset as good a product as you can get from the golfers everywhere

Unknown Speaker 27:10
for anyone has any questions that’s all we have.

Unknown Speaker 27:15
Brian, did you have anything you want to talk about? I mean, really, the only thing I mean the 100 year party was the base thing that happened for the year

Unknown Speaker 27:24
you know tournaments we had a lot of great tournaments the course was fantastic to be able to produce a

Unknown Speaker 27:31
lot of great moments for the people

Unknown Speaker 27:35
you know honestly

Unknown Speaker 27:40
I don’t have much it’s just the same you guys think the customers we’ve really tried to thank everyone because we wouldn’t be here without you guys. Sunset exists Twin Peaks you Creek we all exist because the customers

Unknown Speaker 27:53
and with the weather everything it’s been a fantastic year. It really has. I know I know my business has seen probably the best year it’s ever had. And I’ll but that’s also because if we’ve got more people in the door, it’s always how we try to run our businesses. You know, if we get more people there, we may make some money that you know, pay the employees. But you know, we’re there for the golf course we’re there a golfers so

Unknown Speaker 28:21
