Congratulations to the 2010 Stow Acres Club Champion!

Sunday’s final round at Stow Acres Country Club brought something that we are not used to this summer, rain!  Even though it was a wet day, twenty six players battled it out for the top spot.  Long time club championship competitor, Victor Terra, had a 3-stroke lead going into Sunday’s round and he stayed steady for the entire day.  Firing a +3 (75), Terra went on to easily win the 2010 Stow Acres Club Championship by a convincing 8 strokes.  Even with the wet weather, the North course still played long.  The only thing that the weather may have influenced was the speed on the greens, as putts rolled about 6″ to 1′ slower than players are used to playing. 

Brian Sargent stayed strong as well.  He posted a respectable +13, 157 (79-78) and fell only 9 shots short of Terra.  K. Diskin also played well this weekend, shooting a +12, 156 (79-77).  Congratulations to all of the players for a successful tournament!  See you on the course!

I am the Golf Course Superintendent at Stow Acres Country Club located in Stow, MA. I am entering my sixth season as the course Superintendent. My staff and I are very excited to begin this season as we are continuing to make changes to this wonderful facility. I graduated from the University of Rhode Island in 2006 with a Bachelor's Degree in Environmental Horticulture and Turfgrass Management. Before Stow Acres, I did an internship at one of the country's top 100 courses, The Stanwich Club located in Greenwich, CT. I worked as an Assistant Superintendent at Oakley Country Club located in Watertown, MA and Stow Acres Country Club South Course before becoming the Superintendent at Stow Acres CC. I am married to my soul mate and we have two incredible kids! My course counterpart, Kingston, loves riding shotgun in the cart. In my downtime I enjoy writing for and managing www.iturfapps.com. Hope you enjoy the blog!
