In this episode of the TurfNet Renovation Report, host Anthony Pioppi chats with Michael Osley, CGCS, about Osley's late-career relocation from a 20-year stint in Colorado to take over the hands-on resurrection of St. Joseph Bay Golf Club in the crook of the Florida Panhandle.
Challenges abounded, including significant course damage and losing his family's home to Hurricane Michael within months of relocating. Transitioning from a Director of Agronomy position overseeing five courses in Colorado to one person on a five-member crew in a completely different climate and economic environment, Osley loves it.
How does he manage it? "Just like eating an elephant... one bite at a time."
