Seth then checks in with Sean Reehoorn, superintendent at Aldarra GC in Sammamish, Wash., about golf in Washington state; how he’s changed his aerification schedule because of golf’s shut-down; and how his club is making decisions on behalf of the staff. (Starting at 7:50)

Next up is Dave Vanslette, CEO of FAIRWAYiQ, who talks about the service his company provides the industry; how they’re looking into adapting their technology to track COVID-19; and the creation of the Our Game, Our Crew GoFundMe campaign that benefits out-of-work golf course maintenance workers. (Starting at 16:31)

To round out this episode is Matt Cavanaugh, assistant superintendent at Rush Creek GC, Maple Grove, Minn., who was only recently allowed to work on his golf course after the state shut down all golf course maintenance work.
