One of the things that superintendents do in the off season is continuing education. I attended the Northern Green Expo last week to listen to various speakers and to kick tires on the show floor. It is also a time to meet with old friends and make new ones. This is the time of year when my batteries are being recharged and I start thinking, discussing, and implementing plans for the upcoming season. The topics that interested me and Luck GC most were Master Planning, Irrigation Analysis, and the USGA Year in Review. The short term take was getting tips for growing in the new greens. The long term ideas is what to do as we move foreword. I would like to get a road map for the direction of the course as it relates to improvements. These improvements are not just golf course plans, but also maintenance equipment, infra structure, clubhouse, and parking lots. A well thought out plan will go a long way in maximizing our opportunity to improve Luck Golf. Less than 90 days until golf begins................!
