This is Sam Oates, Superintendent of Golf here at Redstone. He started with us in 2009 in an entry level position but soon exceeded our expectations. His background is a Certificate 3 in Turf horticulture and a Diploma in Turf Management from Kurri, Kurri Australia. His previous employer was Cypress Lakes Golf and Country Club, Australia. What I have learned from Sam is turf is not grass it is a complicated natural system that requires fuel (fertilizer) to feed the plant that is supported by micro organisms. Gone are the days of dumping fertilizer and water and watching it grow.
Starting next week every Monday Sam will explain what he is doing on the course. You’ll want to tune in because these tips will help you keep your home lawn beautiful with a few adjustments.
