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. While nothing could be further from the truth, this misconception has been hanging around our clubs and courses since Old Tom walked the grounds of St. Andrews, I bet.Continue reading
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.Continue reading
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.

The U.S. Open is all about the best players playing at the highest level in the toughest conditions. It doesn’t get much better than that. This year, the U.S. Open came to one of golf’s most historic and intimidating courses: Oakmont Country Club, just outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.Continue reading
It’s an age-old debate: Would you rather have short-term control or long-term peace of mind? If you’re a hands-on person, you might pick short-term control. You always know what’s going on, and you always have an answer for it.
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.
