Members of the Turf Management advisory/craft committee worked with students in the program this school year. Students have gained valuable knowledge in golf course management from dealing with the algae that had begun to grow on the green and to using the correct fertilizer to stimulate growth. Students also learned to use sand to top dress the green. The Turf Management program attracts both male and female students. All students learn how to use the equipment while in the program and take great pride in doing a quality job.
