It's time to go to the Melbourne Sandbelt, to a place you may or may not have heard of before for this segment of Keeper Of The Greens. Keysborough Golf Club is my next stop and Superintendent Nick Launer is my guest on the podcast for this episode. Nick grew up in regional Victoria where the local golf club, Neangar Park, was his Royal Melbourne as he puts it. Considering his future work prospects at a young age, Nick made a phone call to start a career path working in sport that would ultimately lead him to getting his first taste of sports turf management at one of Australia's best golf courses! Through working at a number of fantastic golf courses in his career and being mentored along the way by some of the best in the greenkeeping industry, Nick has garnered a load of experience and skills which culminated in securing the role of Superintendent at Keysborough Golf Club.  Come along with Nick and I for this great journey as we discuss his career in full and open up some of the detail of Keysborough Golf Club that you may not have heard before.
