Welcome to the “Off” Season?

Golf

It’s one of the most common myths regarding our entire profession; that superintendents and our staff have nothing to do in the “off” season.

GolfLandscape

Dormant winter turf is like the human brain while you’re sleeping. It may be resting, but it’s still doing work. According to Scientific American, sleep “serves to reenergize the body’s cells, clear waste from the brain, and support learning and memory.” For turf, it’s pretty much the same thing.

Finish Strong Before Winter Takes Hold Up North

For those up north and in the transition zone, the golf and general turf management season is winding down. When it doesn’t wind down as fast as you thought, that’s usually a good problem to have.

If you choose long-term peace of mind, you might be the type of person that likes to check things off their list. You trust that everything is under control, and you don’t have to worry about it.

We don’t blame you for whichever way you choose. And, in reality, that’s the decision that many turf professionals face every season. Our big follow up question, though, is “why not both?”

If you couldn’t make it to the show, you’re in luck. We’ve got a full recap of our participation in the show right here for you.

Firstly, it was easy to find our booth on the show floor, since we had a prime location right in the middle of it all, and right on the main walkway. It was also easy to find it because it seemed like we always had a crowd around the booth.
