Random acts of kindness do exist!

In today’s world of cynicism and political correctness it’s hard to believe random acts of kindness really do exist! You see, I always have heard stories of this happening to other people but I never thought it would happen to me. Well, thanks to Paula Creamer and the USGA for restoring my optimism that people really care and really do perform random acts of kindness. My story begins about 7:30 a.m. on Sunday, July 8, 2012. I woke up with anticipation that I would be attending the U.S. Women’s Open at Blackwolf Run in Kohler, WI. (Note: see the word “I” in the sentence) I had asked my daughter, Elizabeth, on Saturday evening if she would be interested in joining me at the championship and she really didn’t think it would be any fun….thanks to her mom and some coaxing it was a day she will never forget! As we…

A new name in the golf game

I was excited to hear that Ferrari has launched a golf line. Clubs, shoes & accessories for sale July 1. This description intrigues me: “The club’s shape is the result of input from Ferrari’s aerodynamic engineers, who made changes to reduce drag as the club is swung through the air. The net result is a higher club head speed.” Can’t wait to see what that looks like! Read more here.

Oceans, glaciers, volcanos & giants…A look @ Iowa’s past

One of the many reasons Calcium Products has premium products is the extremely high-quality, pure limestone and gypsum we use. I thought it’d be interesting to share some of Iowa’s history that made our lime and gypsum so amazing. It also contributes to the rich Iowa farmland we hear lots about. Check out this article from IPTV about the land history. Below is an excerpt: Iowa has been under water in one form or another for much of its history. Ancient seas covered Iowa while it was located near the equator. For millions of years, the continental plate on which Iowa sits has slowly wandered around the globe. At one time the plate split apart, creating a rift. Then it moved back together. Several other times, it crashed into other plates. These crashes caused parts of the land to get pushed up out of the water. These earth-quaking events often formed mountains. The…

GCSAA members – the unseen heroes of many a golf course!

Golf Course superintendents’ work is often seen, but they are rarely seen or their work realized. It is not an uncommon practice for the maintenance staff at a golf facility to be up working well before the sun comes up. As a PGA member since 1999, I certainly appreciate the hard work and dedication it takes to be in the golf industry, but I know it takes even more hard work and dedication to be in charge of the grounds and maintenance. More times than not, GCSAA members and their colleagues do not get the accolades they deserve. I consider golf course superintendents the unsung heros of the golf industry. Next time you see your golf course superintendent keep in mind, their jobs are often 24/7 shifts. It takes time, patience, flexibility, and supreme organization to manage 100 acres or more of managed turf, not to mention their staff and…
