On the job at Plum Brook golf course

Melissa Topey • Apr 8, 2013 at 8:30 AM

But on a cold Wednesday morning, I was bested by a push mower. 

When I showed up to work alongside golf course superintendent Mark Bauer, I was excited. I figured I’d spend the morning in the sun, enjoying a beautiful course and riding some cool equipment. 

Easy enough, right? The reality is it was cold day.

And they use push mowers to cut the greens. 

When Bauer told me this, I could hardly believe it. 

“By hand, really?” I asked. 

“I feel it performs better, and it’s better looking,” Bauer said.
