I spent the first part of the past week at a conference in Tasmania that was held at Barnbougle and although the sun was out it was exceptionally cold although one of my playing partners in the golf was wearing shorts!!

One of the presentations about communication with members had this as a final slide highlighting some of the tasks required of a modern day golf course superintendent which I thought showed the diverse range of tasks required;
Human resource plans
Human resource strategies
Human resource policies
Capital works and budgets
Position descriptions even for apprentices
When do we ever get time to smell the grass??
The temporary greens continue to develop and should provide an excellent alternative putting surface during the West course greens works. Planning still continues with one of the next tasks to undertake some soil testing of the sand that has been stockpiled for the project. Nearly 600 tonne of sand will be required for each green which even just transporting it in creates a logistical minefield.
