Life at the Lake with Adam Engle
Where is the best place to find a golf course superintendent on a Saturday morning in August? At his course, of course! I was fortunate enough to have Adam Engle lend me some of his time on a recent Saturday morning at Lake Shore Yacht & Country Club in Cicero, NY to talk about turf, life, and the upcoming POA Annual tournament that he is hosting on August 28th.
Adam has been the superintendent at Lake Shore since 2003. He is an active member of CNYGCSA, and uses a low input, high quality output philosophy in his golf course management program. By this I mean that Adam believes in keeping fertility rates low, utilizing plant growth regulators for what they are intended to do, and letting his beautiful bentgrass plants do what they like to do.
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
