Proverbs for Aspiring Golf Course Superintendents

I am a fool amongst men and the most ignorant of Superintendents.

I lack an agronomist’s understanding.

I have not learned landscape architecture, nor have I knowledge of construction.

I am a disgrace with tools and an idiot amongst mechanics.

I know nothing of irrigation and lack experience in water management.

I know not the ways of man; I am pitied amongst managers.

Business men laugh at my practices and scorn my presence.

My best defense is silence; my wisest action is a hand over my mouth.

I am a fool amongst men and the most ignorant of Superintendents.

Yet, I plead with the young and aspiring, those eager to become Superintendents.

Listen to my foolishness and learn from my stupidity.

Use these sayings and proverbs for doing what is right and just and fair; for acquiring prudence and wisdom and joy; for strengthening men and guarding nature; for learning the rhythm of the golf course and revealing the path of a Superintendent.

Attain wisdom, knowledge and seek guidance.

Let the discerning learn.
