Superintendant
Adam Mullen

Born and raised in Digby Nova Scotia, Adam attended Acadia University where he studied Food Science and finished his BSc. After 6 years working in food industry, he attended Guelph University and got the Associate Diploma in Turf Grass Management in 2007.

Adam's philosophy to turf maintenance is, "to provide the best playing conditions while maintaining a healthy turf. I believe that a turf manager is always learning and I'll be a life-long student of science". His food science background is a significant advantage in a domain that is often considered to be as much art as science. "For inspiration and advice, I look to my peers in the industry. Associations like the AGSA and the GCSAA are great resources and I always enjoy a chat with my mentor, Rob Bell, at Copper Creek."

Master Plan and Restoration

"The value of Donald Ross' hand on your golf course is equivalent to possessing a violin crafted by Antonio Stradivari." 

It is for many reasons that The Riverside is making a concerted effort to preserve and restore this wonderful and unique golf course. These reasons include preserving a fair challenge and test of golf and ensuring the agronomic health of the playing turf.

For more on the master plan and upcoming projects, contact the Greens and Ground Committee.

Daily Maintenance

Daily maintenance practices include cutting the greens, changing the holes, moving tee blocks, and raking bunkers, etc. This work is done in the mornings and for the most part before play has begun. Once the course is set up for play detail work is done such as weeding, sodding, tree maintenance, large repair projects, and all the other things that come up.

Daily Maintenance

Greens

The greens are cut and the holes are changed daily. The roller is used two or three times per week as the weather permits. The greens are fertilized each week and receive a top dressing every two weeks. 

Aeration is ideally done in the spring and fall, weather permitting, when the course is closed.

Tees

Tees are usually mowed Monday, Wednesday, and Friday and the tee blocks are moved daily.

Fairways

Fairways are usually mowed Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Depending on growth we may only cut them twice a week if it has been dry. During rainy periods mowing may be more frequent.

Bunkers

Bunkers are generally raked daily unless there has not been a lot of play.

Rough

The rough is cut twice a week.

Since the beginning of the master plan, it has moved from a paper exercise which analyzed the golf course in an objective fashion to today, in 2017, which has seen many of the recommendations put into practice. As of the 2017 season, the master plan is approximately 1/4 complete. Most recently the completion of plans on the 4th and 8th holes have been met with almost unanimous approval and appreciation.
