Snow Mold Field Days

2019 Snow Mold Field Day

The snow has finally melted, the plots are freshly rated, and it’s time to show off the results.  We will be holding one snow mold field day this year at Marquette Golf Club in Marquette, MI.

When:  April 18th at 11:00 AM EST (NOTE THAT MARQUETTE IS IN THE EASTERN TIME ZONE, SO THIS WILL BE 10:00 AM CST)

Where: Marquette Golf Club in Marquette, MI

Schedule

The field day will begin at 11:00 AM with a brief presentation (20 minutes) by Paul Koch and Kurt Hockemeyer regarding the trial results.  The remainder will be open to peruse the plots on your own, and Paul Koch and Kurt Hockemeyer will be available to answer any questions.  We will remain as long as people have questions.  If inclement weather prevents us from touring the plots we will discuss the results inside the clubhouse.

No registration is required and light refreshments will be provided.

How do I get to the trial?

The trial is located on the 11th fairway just north of Grove Street.    The address for the clubhouse is 1075 Grove St, Marquette, MI 49855.  Please park at either the clubhouse or maintenance facility south of Grove St and walk across the street to the trial.  Please do NOT park along Grove St.  Look for our red truck parked next to the plot north of Grove St.

What about the other snow mold sites?

No field day will be held at Cherokee Country Club in Madison, WI or Wausau Country Club in Wausau, WI this year. Final research reports, along with pictures of each treatment, will be available for all sites online at http://tdl.wisc.edu/results/.
