Fast & Firm

It’s been to long since we had a blog post but this summer has been very busy for the GenNext team. Colorado Golf Club hosted the Solheim Cup this last week and we could not have been prouder of the green conditions created by Tony Hartsock and his team. Hopefully some of benefits were from using the GenNext Complete A&B products.

During the entire broadcast and in the press the talk was how fast, firm and undulating the greens were, more importantly never once during the event did the greens lose color or plant health. The GenNext products are designed to provide optimum plant health that deliver fast firm conditions with less stress on the plant than any other product in the market today.

Some of the great quotes on the greens:
European captain Liselotte Neumann said many of her players headed back onto the greens after their practice rounds earlier in the week to soak in the subtleties of the greens.
"We did talk a lot about the speed," she said. "As soon as we got here, we realized they were super-fast, some of the fastest we've ever played. It was a matter of reading the greens, reading the speed into the putts." ABC NEWS

The USA, on the other hand, could never get a handle on the undulated, firm and slick greens throughout the tournament and now has lost their grip on the Solheim Cup. USA Today
Another great feature during the broadcast was the GCSAA sponsored ad that stated that the greens were the quickest the LPGA had faced this year and that some adjustments had to be made to make the greens less firm for Sunday’s matches. What superintendent wouldn’t like to hear the greens are too fast and firm?

We can’t thank enough the Golf Enviro Systems, Inc. team, our distributor in that region and Tony Hartsock Superintendent at Colorado Golf Club and his team for helping showcase how our products perform.
