Over the past few months Dye's Valley Golf Course has been implementing new amenities around the course to help increase the pace of play. The latest feature added to the course to aid in this effort are yardage signs at each of the par three tee complexes. Every day a member of the Dye's Valley staff uses a range finder to determine the holes' exact yardage. We hope this will decrease the time that it takes for a golfer to make a decision on which club is needed for their upcoming shot.

Yesterday we hosted a North Florida Turf Equipment Service Technicians Association meeting training local equipment technicians on the Tier 4 diesel engine regulations. On May 11, 2004, the EPA signed the final rule introducing Tier 4 emission standards, which are phased-in over the period of 2008-2015. Starting January 1, 2014, all diesel engine turf equipment purchased must comply with these regulations. The training was held by Kreg Kinney who is a territory product support manager for John Deere. Kreg educated how John Deere is meeting these Tier 4 regulations by using a combination of advanced technologies to reduce nitrogen oxide emissions and by adding their proven exhaust filter to control particulate matter emissions. The event was sponsored by Beard Equipment.

It is that time of year again. The tent foundations and hardware for the upcoming PLAYERS has arrived. Shaffer Sports will start construction on these tents a month sooner than in past years. With the amount of tents increasing and deadlines getting closer, the extra month will allow the Shaffer team to complete on schedule.
