Golf is a great game, and I have been fortunate to be associated with it for over 55 years. I started my golf career mowing and spraying courses, and, in 1961, we built our first golf course. We hired a local contractor who taught me all about the importance of drainage, while my uncle, George Fazio, taught me about the importance of design.
Over the past several decades, we have designed and built many courses across the country and around the world. Over that span, the biggest change I have seen has been in the maintenance of these courses. Chemicals and fertilizers are being increasingly regulated as we learn more about their impacts on the environment. We need to be mindful of the damage these products can cause. We have to keep the environment clean and safe.
