    What are some good resources to keep educating myself over the winter. What websites, books, etc do I need to look at?

    Check into Purdue University's On Line Turf Management program if they still offer it.

    Yep that looks like the program I have heard so much about. Purdue is a 1st Class University and I would say go for it. HOWEVER Check out Georgia A&M for the same type of program but geared more toward Warm Season Turf.

    Dumb question but what is Georgia A&M? This question is not with a smarta$$ tone. Thanks

    My Bad. I believe U of G which is a Land Grant University is in fact a A & M school as were all Land Grant University at first.

    I am not sure if U of G or Georgia Tech is the University offering the online Turf course. In fact I am not sure if the program is still being offered. I was posting from memory like 99% of my posts.

    I clicked on the link and I didn't notice any online programs. Did I overlook it?

    Two good reads. "The Rain Maker" by Jeff Fox and "Nine Steps to a Successful Entrepreneur" by Marty Grunder. Anything by Marty Grunder.
