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.


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 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!
