2013 Golf Industry Show in review…

1 Comment

I felt the Golf Industry Show in San Diego this year was a success. The event was extremely well run and organized as usual. The event site was perfect, and with the exception of getting trapped for an extra day due to the blizzard, the whole week was exciting and busy. As I mentioned in a previous post, the week is jammed with education. Whether you’re enrolled in fee-based seminars on Monday and Tuesday or taking advantage of one the fantastic free educational seminars sponsored, this year, by Precision Laboratories, there is always education available. I know that I definitely return to my facility a more educated manager of not just turf, but many other qualities that a successful manager may need. Conversations that are held on the trade show floor or in networking events help inspire new ideas for the upcoming season. Being in the Northeast, we are fortunate to have a few months to be able to regroup and actually spend some time working on these new ideas. This week-long event helps us to become better at what we do. Thanks to our owner, Walter Lankau, for making this possible each year. Please enjoy the videos below, produced by, that help explain a little bit about the week at the Golf Industry Show.

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!
