President’s Newsletter – August 2013

August 2013

ENCTA Members and Colleagues:

Late summer as everyone knows in the golf maintenance industry is a time when we must focus most of our efforts and energy on the responsibilities at our respective golf courses. Those of us who manage bentgrass greens are counting down the days until we can aerify and have consistent 60-degree nights while a growing number of superintendents who are now managing ultradwarf bermudagrass have plenty to do with the cultural practices that go along with their management.

July gave the members of ENCTA an opportunity to get together after hours and fellowship with our families at a Wilson Tobs baseball game. Dale Edmonds with the City of Wilson hosted the July meeting and everyone that attended had a great time. Stanley Elliott, the vice-president of ENCTA threw out the first pitch of the game and Kristen Edmonds, daughter of Dale Edmonds was presented with the Bill Sutton scholarship during the game.

Our August meeting will be a dual meeting at North Shore Country Club with the Cape Fear Superintendents Association. Brian Williams will host the meeting on August 22nd and Matt Martin will give us a golf course pesticide presentation. This is sure to be a great time and will allow us to fellowship with the Cape Fear guys. I am sure that Brian will have the golf course in great shape.

On September 17th we will travel to Greenville Country Club where Dr. L.T. Lucas will give us a presentation on what he has seen in his travels this summer in the Carolinas. Chris Parham and his staff do a fabulous job at Greenville and I am sure everyone will be excited to play there for our annual ENCTA Championship.

The board of directors of ENCTA is so thankful for the support that we have received from our many sponsors this year. We all look forward to the summer winding down and everyone’s stress levels getting back to normal levels. Please let us know if there is anything that the association can do to better serve our members. We would like to invite all of our members to our next few meetings. Please visit our website at for more dates and information on our 2013 schedule.

Good luck to everyone over the next several months!

Brian Green,
ENCTA President
