Golfers get to have all the fun on the Southland's finest courses—but only after the hardworking grounds crews work their magic.
Hours before the first golfer even sets foot on the dewy greens, a dedicated crew is hard at work, sculpting scruffy fairways into works of art. The team mows greens, tees and fairways, changes the holes on the greens, moves tee markers and empties trash cans. They wake early to do their part to give golfers the best round possible. They're the ones who keep those greens impeccable. They rake bunkers, water playing areas, maintain flowers, shrubs and decorated spots and keep wooded areas cleared to facilitate play.
Our readers say Silver Lake Country Club has the best grounds crew around. Players can choose from three well-maintained courses at the Orland Park country club, which garnered 65 percent of the votes.
