Superintendent Spotlight



A Southern Transplant with a New York Heart

Recently, I had the pleasure of sitting down with Dave Hicks, superintendent at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Course at Cornell University. Dave will once again be hosting the CNYGCSA on June 21st in correlation with our annual Cornell Turf Research Day. Dave is the kind of guy who is so easy to talk to, I had far more fun interviewing him than I have playing his course, which isn’t nearly as kind to me as Dave was. We met on a day where he was working, and was also preparing to host the Dryden High School golf match later that afternoon, of which he is the head coach. He said it was a big match for the team, and was hoping to pull out a win.


Great Turnout for Meeting W/ Don Nelson, NYSDEC

Almost 50 members showed up  on March 21st at Orchard Vali Country Club to hear NYSDEC Pesticide Specialist Don Nelson discuss "what to expect on an inspection" .  The overwhelming consensus was that we should have him back every year.  Thank You to WinField United  and  Turf and Soil Diagnostics for sponsoring the meeting.  Their sponsorship allowed us to host the meeting and enjoy a great lunch at no cost to members.

If you you have more questions or want to contact Don Nelson, he can be reached at:        (607) 753-3095 Ext. 232
