In the golf course industry, it is very common to be asked “so what do you do in the winter?”, especially in the grounds department. The winter is an opportunity for us to improve our operation. We complete preventative maintenance on our equipment, attend conferences and seminars, complete tree maintenance and snow removal, as well as plan and hire for the upcoming season. This winter was a little different for me. I was given the opportunity to volunteer with the agronomy staff at TPC Sawgrass for the 2019 Players Championship.

Apr 26
