Bird's Eye View

Chris, Tina & I started off the morning with a golf cart & a 12' ladder. We needed to scout some holes & the cherry picker is SOOOOO slow.

After lunch, Chris called the Genie dealer. They sent out a technician to take care of a few problems. First he was able to disconnect the annoying beeping noise that happens when you drive forward/backward or move up/down. As if that wasn't huge enough, he showed us how to get out of "creep" mode. Apparently every time you start the engine or move the platform, you have to push a series of buttons to move a little faster. It's a safety feature that they didn't tell us about this until today. Now it's awesome. It feels like we're in an Indy car! Well maybe that's a little exaggerated, but it seems like we've quadrupled our speed. We're probably cruising at 4 mph now ... sweet!

This came out pretty well considering the front of the clubhouse never gets nice light on it at this time of the year.

We posed for blog pix on 17 while waiting for a group to play thru.

The clubhouse looks really nice thru the trees.

This osprey wasn't too happy when when we raised our platform near her nest.

We got stuck in some sand behind 17, even though we had an all terrain lift. Luckily Chris was able to get us out. I don't think I could've called AAA. Genie weighs 14,000 lbs!
