Winter on My Course?

In the south, maintenance teams are prepping their golf courses daily for the peak season diehards who are teeing it up and enjoying the weather. The grass doesn’t know it, but this is the busy season…especially in Florida. In the north, scaled down maintenance staffs are reworking equipment, completing annual pruning or removing ice and snow accumulation. Here, the grass realizes that it is wintertime! On the west coast, crews are doing all of the above. Depending on the elevation, golf may be in full swing or it may be asleep! Rest assured, the IGM maintenance teams are busy at every location across the country!
