Bringing the Lido to Life with Superintendent Jimmy Humston
Jimmy Humston is the golf course superintendent at the recently opened Lido in Nekoosa, Wisconsin. He joins Andy for a discussion of what it’s like to live in Nekoosa, how he got introduced to Sand Valley, and the various jobs he’s held around the resort. Jimmy and Andy dig deep into the story of building the Lido, a reproduction of C.B. Macdonald’s famous course on Long Island. They talk about the construction process, the challenges of re-creating a lost design in a different locale, the secrets behind growing grass on the Lido’s bold features, and Jimmy’s plans for the course’s future aesthetic.
