One of the biggest issues with course management is personnel. I live on and a member at a great course (Pine Needles), yet unless it’s the US Women’s Open, they don’t have the maintenance guys available anymore on a daily basis and the course suffers. There are not enough people to cut grass, rake bunkers, do turf repair, address drainage issues that develop due to thunderstorms, spread weed killers, pickup pinecones, etc. And it’s not because the courses aren’t trying to hire people, it’s just there are no people who are applying. It’s throughout the resort, including restaurant and clubhouse people. So many people have left the workforce. The unemployment rate is down because the number of people working/seeking employment is at record lows. There are fewer people working now than 2/3 years ago. It affects all industries, especially where manual labor is needed.
