Welcome to my blog!
It is my intention to give the readers a better understanding of what we do to maintain The Farms Country Club's 18 hole championship golf course and grounds.

First of all, blogging may be fairly new to most of us. We are on the cutting edge of uninhibited member and global communications! Beyond our world of The Farms CC there are other very notable blogs which I follow. They might be of great interest to our members. My intention is to periodically expose you to those blogs which I find warranted.
I want you to experience the vast opportunities which are presented by this form of communicative information.
While blogs are written by individuals expressing their uncensored opinions, they can be a tremendous resource for all. It's fun to see the golf world through the varied eyes of local and national industry professionals and their different perspectives.
Here is my chance to introduce you to the first of some very interesting sites that I enjoy!

Anthony Pioppi, freelance writer...

Anthony is an outstanding journalist that writes "free-lance" for many turfgrass publications. He has already published two books that I've enjoyed, "To The Nines" and "Haunted Golf: Spirited Tales From The Rough". Anthony is a local writer residing in Middletown and is in the process of trying to build a nine hole course in the area.


What you may not know is that Anthony worked on the maintenance staff at The Farms CC years ago. He has a wonderful understanding of golf from both the superintendent's and architect's perspective. He has been a guest speaker at conferences across the nation and his work can be viewed in many golf publications regularly.

There are several things I love about his writing. His unsurpassed journalistic integrity, love of the game and the passion he expresses both written and verbally. He is genuine! When and if you have the chance to spend time with him, you walk away knowing that he is incredibly passionate about the game.
Like most of us who have made this our profession, regardless of our niche, it is the consistent unbridled and uncensored passion of the game that drives us to both succeed in our explicit capacity and share that passion with anyone that will listen.

Anthony is one of those people!
