Ok! We're sort of set now. We got some new sleves put in to replace the torn up ones on #9 and #14, and a new LONG position for #7 (it really needed it to be more of a PAR 4). So the old LONG #7 will now be the new SHORT #7, making this hole the other PAR 4 on the Front 9 (#5 is now a PAR 3, thanks to the new "temporary over-flow parking lot").
Now the next project is to find a way to get #7, #10, and #17 locks un-stuck. Even with the good high quality locks we're still having problems keeping them in good working condition. Any suggestions?
In Tucson, which had the same wind/fine sand you seem to have, I would spray them with silicone spray and cover the entire bottom and sides of the lock with Duct Tape. I was moving the baskets every month and NEVER had any issues with the locks after using this method (which took me 3 keys and lots of effort before I switched)
Good luck to you!
