July Meeting and Golf Results

 The ESAGCS was a Bear Trap Dunes in Ocean View for it’s July membership meeting.  We were pleased to have Elliot Dowling from the USGA to speak to the group on what he had been seeing in his course visits in 2014.
Winterkill and slow greenup was a major topic, coming on the heels of a very cold and prolonged winter in the region.  Elliot showed examples of this issue, much of it coming from courses north of us.  He also discussed ways we could preserve our turf from cold or play during the winter months.
We regularly post links to his updates on our website.  Check them out when you can.
Thanks to Elliot for coming to speak to us, and thanks to the staff at Bear Trap for hosting our meeting and for the hospitality!
