Golf Course Industry Show

I wanted to share some pictures from the Golf Course Industry Show. Mr. David Feherty (CBS Golf Analyst) was the speaker at the closing celebration. I also attended the award ceremony for the Best Blog Award. Below are some pictures:

CGCS CLASS of 2014

I attended the GIS (Golf Industry Show) in San Antonio, Texas last week. The show is the largest collection of industry personnel and vendors in the golf course industry. There were many great ideas and new equipment for the sustainability of maintaining and constructing a golf course. One special occasion I attended was the certification luncheon on Wednesday. The luncheon was a celebration of New, 15 year, 25 year & 40 year Certified Golf Course Superintendents. Below is a picture of myself and the other newly appointed Certified Golf Course Superintendents.

Weather & Golf Course Update

These last few days have been unusually cold. The latest winter blast has definitely put a damper on golf and maintenance practices on the golf course. Based on the forecast today, we plan on removing the covers on Saturday (February 21, 2015). Unfortunately next week doesn't look promising. There is a very good possibility we might have to recover the greens on Monday through Friday of next week (based on the current forecast). Of course the weather forecast could change, so we will monitor the weather and keep the membership and their guests updated frequently. Please visit the member's website, maintenance blog or call the Golf Shop for updates regarding closures and delays. Below is the forecast for tomorrow:
