Tee Marker Enhancements

They say that "the difference is in the details". I have known that our tee markers, that were purchased over 4 years ago, needed a little TLC for quite some time to bring them to the high levels expected at Copperleaf. A good clean and a fresh coat of paint was what was needed to bring these faux rocks back to life. Unfortunately, time and finding the right employee to handle the delicate strokes between the veins of the leaves on the Copperleaf emblem engraved into the concrete forced me to delay the task. Fortunately, two of our own members, Lora Eikelberner and Helga Reynolds, had offered to"help out in any way" one day as we were talking about the many tasks undertaken on the golf course. I quickly thought of the tee markers and how the two of them could masterfully apply the paint to the rocks like nail polish to a manicured finger nail. Once the markers were cleaned, the ladies set about one afternoon applying the blue, white, gold, green and red paint to the rocks. The finished product looks fantastic and the markers look new again.

Next time you see Lora or Helga, please let them know how much you appreciate their efforts. If you would ever like to communicate an idea or offer to help in any way, please do not hesitate to let me know. Thanks again ladies!!
