the end of an era...

In case you haven't heard Austin along with his bosses, Brian & Cortney, were laid off on Tuesday. Golden, the owner of the golf course, is going to try to run the golf course maintenance out of his landscape company in order to save money. It was a shock to all of us, they didn't give them any warning, called them into the pro shop and said it was their last day. If Golden thinks this is going to work, he's crazy. The rest of the guys at the course that know anything about anything down there we not loyal to the golf course but to Brian & Cortney and when Golden so cruelly canned them, the following day, 4 more guys quit on the spot & didn't show up for work. So Golden lost the only 7 people that know anything about maintaining the golf course. It'll be interesting to see what will happen at Sleepy Ridge. It's sad to lose such a fun job with so many fun people but they were all pretty under paid and it may work out better in the long run. Austin has a very good possibility to work for a different course near by with Brian as the assistant superintendent. We are crossing our fingers that it'll all work out!

Lame! Just start your own more awesome golf course next door and put them out of business! :) We're thinking of you guys and I'm sure everything will work out better than before!
