Ten Years of Experience in One Hour

Wednesday, February 3
1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Assistant superintendents today desire to grow in experience and knowledge as rapidly as possible. This will for “growth rate” is usually dictated by their current employer and the level of maintenance that is performed on the course. Of course, that can frequently turn into a budget issue. However, many “experience exposures” are by chance. This session is designed to expose assistants to several of those experiences they may often miss. We will also discuss several key management issues such as chemicals, fertility, cultural programs, etc., and investigate how programs are developed and executed. Attendees will learn how to:

• Perform and interpret soil, water and tissue tests

• Characteristics and principles to build a better pesticide and fertilizer program

• Communication and how to better educate crew members and golfers

• Troubleshooting techniques for many unique and out-of-the-ordinary problems
