This past week I volunteered at the Nationwide Tour's BMW Charity Pro-Am at Bright's Creek Golf Club. I worked two evening shifts helping the golf course maintenance staff prepare for the event. The golf course superintendent, Doug Walter, is a good friend of mine and a former co-worker at Forest Creek Golf Club. Doug and his staff did an outstanding job getting the course ready. Having volunteered at major championships, and PGA Tour events, I have always found the time rewarding. It is great to network with others in the golf course industry, and I am able to come back with some good ideas for our own operation.
