Click on the links to these two videos to hear a bit about the strange happenings that golf course superintendents witness while at work. I continue to be amazed at the antics and things that I see on the courses, but it has been quite some time since I have been amazed or shocked.
My first head superintendent job was a small course in Indiana and I arrived at the course during the winter and noticed tracks up and down a number of the holes as I was driving in and recognized them as snowmobile tracks. During my course inspection that morning the driver evidently tried to make across what they thought was a safely frozen pond, only to find out that it was not frozen enough as the machine was in our pond on the 2nd hole. Using the plates we located the name of the owner and charged him not only with trespassing, but rather for damage done to the greens, fairways, and tees that he had ridden across and damaged.
