Here is a snapshot at our labor hour tracking program from the 2010 season. We had the guys fill out a form with each task listed on it, and each day the guys had to track how many hours they worked on various tasks. At the end of each week, we totaled the hours on a master sheet and produced a running total with each task showing the year-to-date labor hours. It was a lot of data entry, but it is certainly a nice data point to have at the end of the year!
I am the past Golf Course Superintendent at Stow Acres Country Club located in Stow, MA.
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 working out, coaching hockey, and playing with our kids. Hope you enjoy the blog!
