Fried Egg Golf’s Holiday Travel Content

Some videos and podcasts to keep you busy as you travel this holiday season


We’ve had a productive month of December and are happy to bring you some entertainment as you move around at the end of the year. Whether you’re getting on a plane or hopping in the car, we have something on tap for you.

Teaching Turf: Sand Valley

Fresh off the presses this week is our documentary covering the turf team at Sand Valley. Throughout this year, members from our team made trips to the resort to meet up with the superintendents, assistants, and interns on the Sand Valley grounds crew. Teaching Turf: Sand Valley goes behind the scenes of their day-to-day operations, showing how the staff maintains one of the busiest golf resorts in the country.

You can watch the full documentary on our YouTube channel.
