For more than 50 years, the Tuesday Work Group (TWG) volunteers have dedicated their time to performing work around the golf course. On June 18, the group was tasked with cleaning the golf course pond near hole 1.

Using rakes, shovels, a pool net, and a kayak, the volunteers removed eight cartloads of debris, algae, and other items from the pond, ensuring a cleaner and more pleasant environment for all golfers.

“It was the grossest but most fun job we’ve done so far,” said TWG member Susan Fitzgerald.

TWG was formed in 1973 and drafted its charter in 2003, making it a POA standing committee with the primary responsibility of performing volunteer work that will beautify and improve the golf course.

In addition to their normal efforts to beautify the golf course, TWG crews are responsible, in whole or in part, for many of the major improvements seen on the course today.

A few notable projects performed by the group include setting the giant boulders at each tee and mounting the bronze plaques, installing all of the cement benches on the course, assisting with the installation of the post clock at the putting green, and rebuilding the rock hillside below the 14th tee box. In 2020, TWG helped to transform the hill near hole 17 with the installation of a replica of Canyon Lake’s iconic lighthouse.

TWG meets every Tuesday at 8 a.m. from October through June. The group typically logs between 2,000 and 3,000 service hours each year.
