It was only a few posts ago (Treating the soil) that I explained about treating the soil with “rinse-in” sprays. These sprays are the backbone of our program throughout the year just like the soil is the backbone of the playing surfaces. Without strong , healthy soils, the plants up top don’t do very well. This summer has been quite the test, but with the help of some fantastic products, we’ve been able to deliver nutrients and water to the roots in a quicker and more stable route. Thanks to GCSAAtv for filming this short segment and especially thanks to Precision Laboratories for manufacturing products that we could not live without!

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!
