The super at Vesper is a prick. But he knows plenty about growing grass. Perhaps his predecessors who planted all those trees and top dressed the greens with sawdust are the ones who don’t know anything about growing grass.

And so are most of the members. Spare me the jealous speech (I'm a member). There is no excuse for the way some of these people treat others.

who="golf superintendent NH"]none of you know what the hell you are talking about. Manny francis is one of the greatest superintendent new england will ever see.He made a beautiful grass of velvet and there is no need to get rid of it. The superintendent at vesper now is a arrigaint prick!, he doesnt have a clue about velvet grass or any type of grass at that matter] Hey you are 100% right morris is a absolute prick he has lost the name/ history that manny and Bert had for sooo many years. Bert never had this severe of a problem with his velvet. Morris just doesnt have a clue!!!]
