Monday: Agronomy tour

Peter McCormick

4,107 views

The TurfNet group was hosted by the Bandon Dunes Agronomy staff at the main maintenance facility at 6:15 Monday morning, well before sunrise. Ken Nice, Director of Agronomy, spoke to the group about the various maintenance challenges at Bandon, the biggest one being... wind, and how it moves sand around the golf course. 

 

The superintendents from the various Bandon courses were available for group and individual Q&A.

 

Breakfast was provided by trip sponsor Turf Drainage Company of America.

Ken Nice was very complementary of their Vredo seeder (photo below), which he said is great for little-to-no-disturbance overseeding of all turf surfaces.
