Earle Huska, left, and Nick LaFluer walk onto the green Thursday at the Yampa Valley Golf Course to cut a new cup. New pins are set so players don't have to shoot at the same hole every day, and it also keeps the edges of the cup fresh, Brady said.

Jeremy Brady watches a green after starting the sprinkler system Wednesday. "If we don't have water, we don't have a golf course," Brady said. "Water is pretty much the number one priority of the golf course."

When it comes to golf, the course is as much an integral part of the sport - if not more - than the opponent.

It's man against green.

Behind the scenes is a team of workers out every day, keeping the Yampa Valley Golf Course as beautiful as it is challenging.

Jeremy Brady, golf course superintendent, and his team of nine employees are out there seven days a week, trimming and watering, to create something of beauty.
