Superintendent Series: Sandy Reid of St. Andrews
Sandy Reid (@SandyReidGK), the Director of Greenkeeping at St. Andrews Links, is today’s guest for our Superintendent Series. Sandy has one of the busiest jobs in the turf industry: he oversees all seven courses at St. Andrews. This year was busier than ever for him, with the 150th Open and the Dunhill Links both taking place at the Old Course. Sandy shares how he and his team managed the infrastructure necessary for the events and the inevitable wear and tear to the course. He and Andy also talk about Sandy’s time at Carnoustie, how he maintains courses that rarely shut down, what it’s like having the property turn into a park on Sundays, and much more.
The Superintendent Series is brought to you by the Toro Company.
