The Heritage shop has been very loud with the sound of grinders at work as we tear down and grind each reel in preparation for the 2013 golfing season. Seals, bearings and other parts are replaces if needed and the reels are reconditioned as if they were new from the factory. We use 100 reels to maintain the 36 holes here at MGC with the primary reels being serviced during the off-season. This process takes loads of time and must be completed properly to achieve top quality turfgrass conditions.
