Projects that I have overseen at Mount Si Golf Course
Flood clean up (Inside and outside organizing)
Flood of 2009 was the worst flood in 100 years
The day that I was able to get into the golf course, I got out of my car and looked at the golf course and knew that there was no way in the world that the 4 – 5 full time employees that we had in January would ever be able to clean it up.
I immediately fired up the computers in the back and sent out emails and posted to our website that we needed help and by 1:00 PM we had over 50 volunteers there with shovels working getting things cleaned up. My role went from working trying to get things cleaned up to organizing the volunteers.
The golf course was opened up (all 18 holes) in 6 days. The courses down below the falls were closed for two months. This was a huge accomplishment. We ran a golf tournament called the Snoqualmie Valley Flood Relief Scramble that fielded over 120 players.
The flood previous to this, not quite as bad, but similar was two months earlier. The flood that happened two months earlier was not as damaging as the flood of 2009.
After the golf course was cleaned up I organized the reconstruction and demolition of the entire downstairs of the restaurant. This was a month project that involved much of my time and decision making.
Oversaw cedar siding project ($250,000) remodel project of the restaurant and pro shop. This project involved windows, decks, staining and painting, rails, permits, and was very involved.
Oversaw the construction of 8,000 feet of elk fence that totally surrounds the perimeter of the golf course. The cost of the project was $90.000. I got 25 bids from fencing companies all over the state of Washington.
Talked with Kathy Lambert (our King County Coucil woman) about getting permits to allow fences to be put across the King County Trail.
Worked with OSHA and the City of Snoqualmie dealing with issues of wetland.
Worked with the Department of Fish and Wildlife.
