Securing facility

Over the past few months, we have experienced a number of issues of vandalism at the facility involving carts being taken from the maintenance facility and used for joy riding and damaging some of our turf.  In the past month, the facility has been burglarized through shop windows which were broken allowing the individuals to climb into the facility and do their damage. 

The staff installed heavy gauged metal screens over the windows today to protect the windows from damage and eliminating this area of potential entrance into the facility.  We have taken other steps within the facility to prevent equipment from exiting the doors and will be adding some additional security measures over the next few days to help secure the facility in total.

Its a shame you have to do this, but it looks like you're taking all the necessary precautions.

Jeff,

The little rascals have upped their game so it has become necessary for us to follow suit. We've been lucky that they have not completely pulverized a green.
Thanks
