Medinah superintendent gets an "early jump"

| 4 Comments | No TrackBacks

The Ryder Cup is about four months away, but Medinah Country Club is ahead of schedule thanks to cooperative weather.

"She's looking good," said Medinah director of golf course operations and head superintendent Curtis Tyrrell. "We had a wonderful fall and mild winter, which really benefited the course."

Most important, the weather allowed Tyrrell and his staff to get an early jump. Most notably, a mild March and April provided "good growing weather" for the famed course.

"Now, we're really settled in, and things are mature," Tyrrell said. "Now, it's about dialing in the finer details.

"It'll be refining things through the heart of summer."

And to take nothing for granted, Medinah also didn't open until April 24, later than other top local courses. Medinah will also limit rounds in July and August. By August, golf carts will be prohibited then close Labor Day (Sept. 3).

You provide a perfect website me and a friends were writing about this exact study and I had to do some Googling to prove a point. Always keep up the exceptional work.

Very good website full of interesting content and comments. Thanks for your efforts.

Personally, I like this post. Thanks!

Just about all of what you claim happens to be astonishingly accurate and that makes me wonder why I hadn't looked at this in this light previously. This particular piece truly did turn the light on for me personally as far as this particular subject matter goes. But there is actually one issue I am not too comfy with and while I make an effort to reconcile that with the main idea of your position, let me observe just what all the rest of the readers have to say.Very well done.
