Park & Golf Update

 



Time for a little update on the pool, maintenance items and a GREEN Golf Course!!

Pool Update!

Today the first two coats of the "Cool Deck" went on the new poured concrete pad - finish coat later this week. Filters scheduled to be serviced this week, final cool deck coat this week, Solar install scheduled for the 22nd to 24th, so soon we will have solar heated pool and spa, we hope to be able to open the pool and spa soon after that!! The Snowbirds will be swimming this winter in warm water Sara Gephart!! Monday morning the landscaping/Arborists will be here to remove the trees across from the clubhouse, we hate to take away shade, however they have a fungus and are rotting from the inside out and falling down, too dangerous to leave up. We hope to be able to replace them with some other more desert friendly trees, bushes for some shade and aesthetic appeal.

GOLF COURSE!

Everyone says the course is in the best shape in 5 years and from my brief tour this morning it is GREEN! There is grass where there never has been. Greens and approaches look great and most of the fairways are filling in, they are watering everyday and it shows...

8th Green!


8th Fairway - yes that is grass!!


8th approach and Green - Palms Springs quality!


9th tee to green - note MOWER only needed if the grass is growing!!


1st Hole Approach & Green! Yes that is water!


We are very busy getting ready for our winter friends to arrive, in the middle of recruiting some more workampers to help us finish our landscaping projects, pool maint, night security and office so if you are a workamper looking for a spot to land this winter, ring us up.

We have a fantastic season planned, with great Wednesday BBQ's, Saturday Dinners & Dancing, Weekend breakfasts and daily morning coffee. COME JOIN IN!

POOL UPDATE!! Back on Schedule

 



The pool is back on schedule!

The pool company came and removed the new deck, located the broken cap on a pipe and fixed the leak, they refilled and compacted the dirt and on Saturday they poured a new deck...so we really only lost a few days!

Now they will put down the two coats of Cool Deck on the new part and apply the final coat over the entire deck this week. The railings will be installed, the pool will get a good cleaning, the filters need to be cleaned and finish treating the water.

The solar company is scheduled to install the solar heating on the September 22 - 24...I am hoping we will have everything else done by then and be opening the pool...




We also have the arborist/landscapers coming on the 12th to remove the trees with fungus on the front row across from the clubhouse and pool...

We have a bunch going on in the next few weeks...bear with us as we work on all these improvements.

Pool Update and Setback

 Pool Update


We were so excited to finally finish the plaster in the pool and put water in to acid wash and watch the last remaining items get finished before we could open the pool.

Sadly - We noticed that the pool was still losing water and the new concrete deck was lifting up from the escaping water. Quickly notified the pool contractor and they started testing all the plumbing, has to be a plumbing leak the new pool is solid and fine. They figure when filling the old end of the pool they may have broken one of the caps off of the old plumbing which they had plugged.

So Today they are breaking up the new concrete deck and will be digging to find the leak and fix it, then pour new concrete in the next day or so...hopefully will only set us back a few days...still quite a bit to do to finish the pool, will have to refinish the entire pool deck, install ladders and railings. Finish the acid treatment of the water and install all the required pool safety equipment.

Sad Picture of breaking up new deck!


Hopefully we will have another update saying the leak was found and the pipe capped and fixed once and for all!

Stay Tuned!

Winter Season 2021-2022

Everyone here at the park our workers, workampers, Activity Director, Kitchen Crew, and the Owners are ready to put the past couple years behind us and get back to a winter season full of activities.

Sadly some of our long time Snowbirds have passed on or are not traveling anymore, many wintered here for over 20 years, they are sadly missed and we hope that we will begin to gather a new group of people for the next 20 years. There are some big shoes to fill, many helped plan our activities, help decorate the Clubhouse, organized Ladies Golf, Mens Golf, Texas Hold-em in the Game Room, Board games in the clubhouse, exercise classes in the fitness room and pool, we welcome everyone's participation in a very people friendly RV Park!


We are offering a reduced Winter rate with our Snowbird Special!!

Pool & Spa Update and Snowbird Special

We are making headway, finally, on the pool rebuild. This week they came and textured and put down "cool deck" on the new concrete where the pool was shortened and also in the Spa room

Nice new deck!



Pool surround patched and ready for cool deck!


Spa Room deck coated!



Pretty soon we will be cleaning the spa and filling!


As we continue the refurbishment and landscaping of the park, we get awarded another project! We had one of the cottomwood trees come down across from the clubhouse. This is the 5th tree down this year, we are fortunate nobody has been hurt or any RV's hit. So we called an aborist to come and inspect our trees and lo and behold they have an incurable fungus which causes them to rot from the inside out and of course then die and become weak and fall down. We have contracted to have them all removed along the front row - sites 14-22, so our residents are moving their RV's and we will be cutting them down in the next few weeks.



All coming down!




It has been a very busy summer here at the park, we have trimmed all the palm trees, removed the skylights from all the buildings, rebuilt the pool and spa, adding solar heat to the pool and spa and now will be starting on the landscaping...The Talley's have made a huge investment in the park! Now we need a few more new Snowbirds!

Come on down this winter and enjoy our new pool and warm weather!

We also are offering our "Snowbird Special" Buy 5 months get the 6th month free!

Pool Update

 We are finally making some headway on the pool, plaster and the cool deck covering the deck surround and new concrete over shortened area of the pool is all that's left before water!


We also got the steel grates to replace the windows in the Spa room to allow a little more ventilation, once the deck is refinished we will take the windows out, rebuild the walls and install the grates which are 4 foot by 4 foot.


The current windows!


The tile has been installed and the deck over the filled in part of the pool.


The steps have been extended the full width of the pool.


The new deck is fantastic!





The tile


The solar panels and new pumps have been ordered and once we start putting water in the pool, they will be up to install the solar heat for the pool and spa.

Have a block layer coming out to quote putting block to replace some of the sliding doors and glass block halfway up on some. Should look nice, also have a stucco guy quoting to stucco the inside and outside of the building and the wall behind the roses, which for some reason was never done.

Landscapers should be up soon to start some work on the entire park and pool area. Also we are shopping new pool furniture and umbrellas and a pergola.

Should be all ready for this season. Make plans to spend the winter here!
