Some golfers might tee off as early as possible in the mornings, but they're still not the first to arrive at the course.
Hours before the first golfer even sets foot on the dewy greens, a dedicated grounds crew is hard at work, sculpting scruffy fairways into works of art. The team mows greens, tees, and fairways, changes the holes on the greens, moves tee markers and empties trash cans. They wake early to do their part to give golfers the best round possible. They're the ones who keep those greens impeccable. They rake bunkers, water playing areas, maintain flowers, shrubs and decorated spots and keep wooded areas cleared to facilitate play.
And we bet you know the best around.
