This week the Turfgrass Hotline. is tracking the Connect to Protect Tour, a 3000 mile bike journey by my friend, Ken Benoit, CGCS. Ken is the President and Founder of EcoTurf Consulting and a long time golf course superintendent conditioning golf courses for 25 years. Ken, an avid and experienced cyclist, is riding 3000 miles in 30 days with 40 lbs of gear on the Connect to Protect Tour, highlighting best management practices for water quality protection across the US. His goal is "to raise awareness within the golf industry of the importance for golf course facilities to adopt BMPs and to demonstrate, to people outside the golf community, golf’s dedication to preserving and protecting water quality, pollinators and wildlife habitat." For Ken this is as much a personal journey as a professional one. We recorded this interview on Monday August 17, right before Ken headed from State College to Westerville, OH, a 112 mile ride. Follow Ken's travels on his YouTube channel (Eco Turf Consulting) Twitter feed (@ecoturfconsult) and Instagram (@eco.turf.consulting).
