Parks Maintenance Sales Tax Initiative

On April 4, residents of Blue Springs will have the opportunity to vote on a sales tax initiative to benefit city parks. The proposed initiative would increase Blue Springs’ sales tax by one-half cent, which equates to 25 cents for every $50 spent inside the city.

Estimated to generate approximately $15 million during a five-year periodthe tax would help address major concerns in the city’s parks and trails and would allow Adams Pointe to make important upgrades to its facilities. If passed, the tax is slated to address the following deterioration issues at Adams Pointe:
  • Replacement of clubhouse roof
  • Bunker repair and replacement
  • Main drive replacement
  • Cart path repair and replace

These improvements would allow Adams Pointe to continue offering quality recreational opportunities for the entire community while improving guest experience.

Aerification Alert!

A note to our golfers: The course will be closed Monday, March 20, for aerification. Future posts will highlight the many reasons why this cultural practice is vital to the long-term health of the course. In the meantime, check out this fact sheet from Utah State University for any questions you may have.

Unfortunately, it will take a little longer than in the video above. We look forward to seeing you on Tuesday.

Meet Our Staff

Welcome to the Adams Pointe Golf Club maintenance blog! Our hope is to provide our patrons with useful, timely information about general maintenance at our course. We will add content from standard course care to comprehensive details about our agronomic practices. But first, lets meet our staff.

Randy Shatzer, Superintendent:

Randy has been Adams Pointe’s superintendent since September 1998. Prior to his tenure here, Randy was assistant superintendent at Milburn Country Club in Overland Park, Kansas. With almost 20 years’ experience on this property, Randy is well accustomed to the challenges presented in growing cool-season turf grass in an unforgiving climate. His vast knowledge proves a great asset every season. 

Brian Neufeld, Assistant Superintendent:

Brian joined Adams Pointe in May 2013, after relocating from Jackson, Wyoming, where he served as second assistant superintendent at Jackson Hole Golf and Tennis Club. Brian’s irrigation and varied turf grass experience – from cold to desert environments – help Adams Pointe address threats to the course. 

Mickey Fleeman, Equipment Manager:

Mickey began his career at Adams Pointe in April 1998, after serving as equipment manager for Ironhorse Golf Club in Leawood, Kansas. He has been invaluable to Adams Pointe, using his decades of equipment repair and preventive maintenance experience to keep our course machinery running.
