As you can see in the photo, pins are in, and we are ready to open. There is just one obstacle in the way, and it is the same obstacle that we have been dealing with since Christmas…snow! Yes, that is right, we received about 3″ of snow today, and the course will be closed for at least a couple more days. On a positive note, the staff did such a great job cleaning, that as soon as the snow melts, we will be ready to open. Thanks for your patience, as the crazy weather patterns here in New England just don’t want winter to end. See you on the course soon!

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!
