I have heard that the superintendent of the Taber golf course is resigning because of inappropriate politics. It is a crying shame that a person’s livelihood be destroyed by people who do not understand what it takes to maintain a golf course.
Taber has one of the nicest courses in southern Alberta and the superintendent and grounds crew are doing an excellent job keeping it that way. You people who are so quick to criticize should walk a mile in the superintendent’s shoes. A golf course executive could be made up of a dentist, a lawyer, a doctor, a farmer, a banker or a school principal. None of these people would interfere with the other person’s business but yet they feel they have the expertise to tell the superintendent how to walk and talk! In my humble opinion, I cannot understand why people can’t sit down and talk things out and come up with solutions instead of problems. When a golf course superintendent feels they should resign half way through the season there is a huge problem with management. If we want to keep our course in great shape, perhaps the executive should keep the superintendent they have.
