Ep 36 John Neylan Turf Agronomist & Shane Greenhill

In todays episode I have 2 guests who I have been wanting to get onto the show. John Neylan is very well known in Australia and worldwide with his research and agronomy services. John has been lead the AGCSA (now ASTMA) for a number of years and also worked independently. He is now with SportEng in developing and designing sportsturf facilities. He also continues to conduct research in turf and lately has been doing work got the VGCSA (Victorian Golf Course Superintendents). My other guest is Shane Greenhill who is the superintendent of Sorrento golf club located on the southern part of the Mornington Peninsula. Shane is also the VGCSA president. We speak on a number of topics including the history of the industry and where both Shane and John came from as well. We continue on a topic John discussed with Dr Frank Rossi on the turfnet podcast and the expectations of golfers and how turf managers deal with this expectation. We also speak about our favourite weed poa and the research the VGCSA has undertaken.
