Expansion of the "World of Turf"

Today is the end of one stage for me and the beginning of another. I end a career as COO and Director of Golf Operations, and enter into the world of providing service to my colleagues.
There are a flood of emotions through me, including sadness, excitement, and a little fear. Change is difficult, the golf course is all I know. It has been great to have the support of everyone around me encouraging me and insisting that I will be successful.
One of the things I am looking forward to, is more time with this blog. This blog will really become the "World of Turf" as I blog about all kinds of turf and golf courses and not just Briar Ridge. It is my hope that my sales visits will result in some great stories, photos, and information. I just hope that my colleagues will trust me enough to let me use them as topics.
The guys surrounding me are the ones I owe my success to, Marco Huerta, Flavio Huerta, David Rodriquiz, and Polo Huerta. These guys have been with me the entire time and had my back every time. There were also two special assistants, Dave Miloshoff and Andrew Reynolds. These two guys made me shine like a superstar.
I owe my success as a Golf Course Superintendent to my staff and the Golf Professional Staffs that I have worked with. Jack Sudac was a big supporter of mine and I will be forever grateful.
I would have never made it to Briar Ridge without Joe Williamson and Joel Purpur, thanks guys.
I look forward to the next chapter, and I hope you do too. This is just the beginning as we open the door to the "World of Turf."
Thanks to everyone at Briar, you are the best and will be missed......just ask Ralph,
