Touring Hill Country Golf Club

A few weeks ago, I made my annual pilgrimage to the NGCOA (National Golf Course Owner’s Association) Conference.  It’s a great way to network with fellow golf course owners to get their opinions and trade secrets about what they are doing to help grow the game of golf.  In previous years, I was able to […]

Having grown up on the golf course, I have many stories to tell about all of the many jobs that I have performed over the years.  When I was two years old, my dad would take me with him and I would help him change the cups on the course.  My job was to set […]

We had a strange morning in our neck of the woods.  Several students from our district decided to antagonize police officers through an app called Yik Yak.  Ultimately, this event ended in my children staying home from school after it was cancelled for the day.  Being a nice mom, I made them get out of […]

In the fall, they have […]

Part of the fun of living in our community is that feels like a small town.  Except.  It isn’t.  Most small towns don’t have amusement parks and Bass Pro shops. My dad grew up in Altoona.  His childhood home still stands along with the first pool in the city of Altoona which happened to be […]

We have many events at the golf course.  I think my favorite type of event is when we get to seriously surprise someone for their birthday. Our set up is perfect for surprising unsuspecting victims.  Even those who are most suspicious.  The usual method involves someone in the family asking another family member to play golf. […]

On Saturdays, it isn’t uncommon for us to work more than fifteen hours.  We have nicknamed these days Super Saturdays because that makes them seem more fun. (Yeah.  Right.) It isn’t as bad as it sounds.  I don’t sit at a desk for fifteen hours.  The job is constantly changing and evolving as the day […]

About four years ago, we purchased a smoker from a catering company.  Along with that catering company, came some of the jobs they had previously serviced.  Since they were farmers, it was natural that many of the catering jobs had to do with farming.  Pork Producers, Cattlemen, etc.  We have continued to provide catering over […]
