In the last Turf Line News, I reported on a collaborative educational project involving support of teens living with FASD (Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders). Rob Welsh, Jason Hooper, Byron Duffy and I delivered a 3 day session in May to 7 teens about greenskeeper skills. The ultimate goal of this was to see at least one of them successfully working on a golf course this summer. At this sessions’ completion, one student commented, “This was the best day of my life!”.
