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.

Boris Said Wins NASCAR'S NAPA Auto Parts 200 at Montreal!

What does NASCAR racing have to do with turfgrass at The Farms CC? Some of the maintenance staff are big big fans! More importantly, huge Boris Said fans! Couple that with the fact that Boris is a longtime friend and frequent guest of member Mike Vallone and you can understand my compelling desire to post this entry.
Along with his tremendous racing skills, this "road-track" specialist is also a very passionate golf fan. He has a single digit handicap and has forged some notable friendships in the world of golf. Names like Mark O'Meara, Stuart Appleby and John Cook come to mind.

During our 2008 Men's 3 Day Member Guest's Par 3 tournament, Boris carded a hole-in-one on #9. An incredible feat since the tees were in the thick rough on the top of the hill on the right. The downhill shot was to a treacherous front left pin.

The maintenance staff congratulates Boris Said for landing his first NASCAR Nationwide victory!
In a photo finish, Said passes Max Papis on the inside of the last corner. He then beats him in a drag race to the finish line. It is not to be missed!
