(November 29, 2021) - We all love going to the golf course! Whether it is to play in a CSGA championship event, a One Day Series event, or for a casual round with our buddies. However, many golfers don't know what goes into maintaining a golf course and how it is prepared for play each day. We sat down with Watertown Golf Club Head Golf Superintendent Paul Bonini to talk about golf course maintenance, what he enjoys most about the job, the biggest challenges he faces, and much more.
