    And no not that type of "green".... Just curious if there is anyone on TW that is in the turfgrass industry. Im currently one year into my bachelors degree in Golf Course Management and it would be cool if I had some contacts through TW if I ever had any questions!!

    Lol thats for sure!!
    I think that I will really like it. I enjoy being outdoors and could never work in a cubicle. The horticulture behind this type of career really does apply to myself also. Either way I think its fun so far!

    My brother just graduated from Penn States turfgrass program... Having a rough time finding a course to work at, even though he was the top student in the nation....

    From what I understand Penn state has a top of the line turf program... Ive been looking around the southeast and the job market down here is not to bad actually. The course that I am doing my internship at the summer is looking for several greenskeepers and an assistant superintendent.....
