The Tuesday Work Group's (TWG) primary responsibility is to perform volunteer work that will beautify and improve Canyon Lake Golf Course. This committee also works with Canyon Lake POA management to develop and implement projects to enhance the golf course and promote more play.
The Tuesday Work Group has been in existence for more than 40 years, and it has members who have served for over 30 years. They typically run 40 to 50 members on their roster, with 20 to 30 eager to work every Tuesday. A typical Tuesday will start around 7:30 a.m. with donuts and coffee and a short safety meeting before assignments are given, and work begins. They provide between 300 to 400 man-hours of volunteer labor on the golf course each month. All work is coordinated with the golf maintenance superintendent and the head golf professional to limit any course interference.
A few of the routine projects that happen regularly are sanding the divots on the course, trimming bushes and low hanging branches, and concrete repair. Even though golfers are responsible for repairing or filling their divot, many go unattended. The Sanding Crew goes out weekly to fill the overlooked divots. Overgrowth of bushes and trees are another ongoing challenge on the golf course. The Tuesday Work Group Trimming Crew is out in force regularly to assist our maintenance company when needed. The golf course is over 50 years old, with failing cart paths in many areas. The Concrete Crew does the demolition, grading, forming, mixing, and pouring new concrete to replace many of the failed paths.
In addition to their normal efforts to beatify the golf course, the Tuesday Work Group crews are responsible, in whole or in part, for many of the major improvements seen on the course today. A few of the notable projects are setting the giant boulders at each tee and the mounting of the bronze plaques. They formed and poured the concrete pads and installed all the cement benches on the course. They poured the concrete foundation and assisted with the installation of the post clock at the putting green and they rebuilt the rock hillside below the 14th tee box.
A seven-member board led by Chairman Sam Theodora manages the Tuesday Work Group. They work closely with the Canyon Lake POA's Operations department, managed by Steve Schneider, Field Superintendent Sal Medina, and Board Liaison Joe Kamashian.
The Tuesday Work Group is a tremendous asset to the golf course, and the members can be proud of their contribution to the community. Membership is open to anyone who wants to volunteer their time, meet new people, and share their talents. Joining is easy. Those interested are welcome to come to any Tuesday Work Group meeting, they meet every Tuesday morning at the Canyon Lake Golf Course maintenance yard which is east of the 17 green. They'll provide the donuts and coffee and you just need to be ready to go to work. For more information, contact Sam Theodora at 951-244-4474.
