Scotts Speedygreen 1000 Spreader

Nick Christians

I need a Scotts Speedygreen 1000 homeowner broadcast spreader for a study. I would just need it for a few hours. Does anyone local have one that I could borrow?

ITI/IGCSA Benefit Tournament Recap

The 30th Annual Iowa Turfgrass Institute/Iowa Golf Course Superintendent's Association Benefit Golf Tournament was held October 3 at the Wakonda Club in Des Moines, Iowa.  The success of this event depends on the involvement of many individuals, vendors and allied associations.  Funds raised from the tournament support turfgrass research and scholarships.

Wakonda Superintendent John Temme working hard right up until the start of the tournament.  Thanks for such an enjoyable day John.

Special thanks to golf course Superintendent John Temme and his entire staff for hosting the event and having the golf course in impeccable shape.  Everyone who participated was treated to beautiful weather and striking fall colors.  To see what the Wakonda Staff has been up to, check out their maintenance blog, Wakonda Grounds.
