Heritage Golf Links, originally opened in 1996 as “Heritage Golf Club,” the golf course was nominated that year as one of the “Best New Golf Courses in America” by Golf Digest magazine. Today, the golf club still boasts one of the highest slope ratings in Georgia. The golf course at Heritage Golf Links is designed around a 20-acre lake, with water in play on several holes. The course’s rolling terrain and dramatic elevation changes provide stunning vistas, and golfers of every skill level love playing our challenging yet fun layout. This outing includes golf, cart and box lunch. Club rental is a separate fee.

Basic Lubrication 103: Basic Lubrication Overview Basic Lubrication 103 is designed primarily for the person entering the lubrication field who needs a broad introduction to lubricants, lubricant building blocks, and lubricating materials. This course is also for persons not directly involved, but who need a broad overview of lubricants and basic lubricating components. Basic Lubrication 103 does not require a formal scientific degree or background, although many technical terms and concepts are covered. Experienced people attend the course to be kept up-to-date on the latest developments, especially in those areas not directly related to their job function or area of expertise. Thus, Basic Lubrication 103 is usually attended by a broad cross section of people such as technical service, sales, marketing, manufacturing, maintenance, and management, who in some way are involved in the industry. Basic Lubrication 103 will focus on the fundamentals of lubrication associated with fluid film lubrication and grease as it applies to basic lubricated components such as gears and bearings. Also, the course will review some basics around the basestocks, synthetic lubricants and lab testing.

Metalworking Fluids 250: Understanding and Controlling Metal Removal Fluid Failure Once a metalworking fluid has been qualified for use in an application, its performance depends on successful fluid management. In turn, successful fluids management depends on a fundamental understanding of the factors that work against fluid life and fluid performance, as well as cost-effective strategies for preventing these factors from causing metalworking fluid failure. Metalworking Fluids 250 is designed to meet both of these needs. It covers primary failure mechanisms, including the effect of contaminant particle size, water quality, microbes and oil contamination. Also presented are recommendations on how best to prevent each of these factors from destroying metalworking fluid performance and shortening metalworking fluid functional life.

Synthetic Lubricants 204: Basestock Selection and Applications Synthetic Lubricants 204 provides an introduction to synthetic lubricant basestocks and applications. It compares the use of these synthetic lubricants to petroleum-based products and compares between types of synthetic lubricants. Synthetic Lubricants 204 is a continuation from the Synthetic Lubricants 203 (Non-Petroleum Fluids and Their Uses) course, however attendance of the Synthetic Lubricants 203 course is not a prerequisite.
