Green Keeper at University Golf Club in Vancouver, BC

This summer I worked as a greenkeeper in the maintenance department of the University Golf Club. My duties focused on mowing different lawn areas, raking bunkers, gardening, divot repair, irrigation repair, and so on. I learned to operate mowing machines and tools to keep the green space neat and up to golf course standards and learned to use gardening tools to support the gardens around the course beautifully manicured. During the three months of work, I gained an in-depth understanding of the management standards for scientific maintenance of golf courses and experienced the physical and mental pleasure that green spaces bring to people.
