TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — I’m kicking off a new series called “Hiring Heidi.” I’ll be spending a day trying my hand at jobs I’ve never done and at the end, employers will decide whether I’m hired or fired.
In the first installment, I decided to try my hand at golf course maintenance at Dorado Golf Course.
If you’ve ever gone golfing, you’d know mowing is a daily task because the grass always looks perfect. But I had a rocky start.
Once I figured out the machine, I was on the move. My lines weren’t the straightest, but at least the grass was cut.
My next task was cutting a new hole on the course, and it took some serious strength. I filled the old hole and got the new one all set up. After that I had to seal the old one.
Mission accomplished, but I don’t think I could have done 17 more.
The carts don’t clean themselves: They are washed and prepped every single day. I did get the seats wet and the camera too, but overall it wasn’t too bad.
After all the tasks were done, I had to try to golf. Not a perfect effort, but I got the ball where it needed to go.
In the end, Dorado Golf Course gave me some good news! They would hire me!
