Cooler days and crisp nights are upon us bringing great grass-growing weather and perfect playing conditions to the Northeast area. These days are what we in the turf industry always look forward to as we prepare our properties for the following year by renovation work, aeration, and small projects. This time is also some of the best golf weather and an opportunity to enjoy time with friends and family playing the game we all love. This has been an incredibly challenging season not only in our daily lives but conditioning grass from a drought in June to the oppressive July followed up by three tropical storms in August. The positive takeaways are that all the hard work over my time here in 5 years paid off and that we have had a successful season providing an escape for membership and a golf course we can continue to fully enjoy. Please take some time to realize how fortunate we are to have such a great place to call ours and thank you for all your support this season and for years to come.
