Golf Course Maintenance News & Live Updates from @stowacresturf

Yes, this is my golf course blog. It’s an avenue for me to explain, communicate, brag, and even sometimes vent about what we are doing on the property. I haven’t done that in some time now. I didn’t even put together an “end of the year” recap for 2013. Yes, don’t worry, the golf courses were put to bed just fine and from what I can remember are in good winter shape. I say “from what I can remember” because I haven’t been on the property since December 11th. Very strange for me. I’m usually always at work. Even through the winter. The only thing that comes before work is my family. And, unfortunately right now, my wife is very sick.

This sudden illness has left me with “living in the moment”. I am very blessed to have an owner like we do at Stow Acres CC who has allowed me to focus on one thing only right now, my wife. I’ll be back at the course in the future, but right now, I can’t plan for when.

I have created a blog about my wife’s illness. I will provide consistent updates of her condition. For these updates, I just ask that you spread this story as far as you can. Doctors are having a difficult time finding a diagnosis for her and comments on this post with every similar story would help. Thanks for your support!

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!
