In Matthew Wharton's case, an unexpected weekend meeting increased the size of his turf library.
Following the directions of his general manager, Wharton, the superintendent at Carolina Golf Club in Charlotte, N.C., entered the clubhouse, where members Chris Hughes and Ed Oden handed him a letter signed by 63 members.
The letter had a heart-skipping start: "You have been here 10 years ... and it is obvious you still don't know what you are doing..." The letter quickly turned congenial and led to a symbolic gesture, as Hughes and Oden lifted a tablecloth and unveiled a collection of 14 old turf books they acquired at an auction for Wharton.
Wharton studied under Dave Chalmers at Virginia Tech and keeps turf books in his office. Chalmers' book collection always intrigued him. "I will never forget the first time I spent significant time in his office, just looking through books in his shelf," Wharton says. "I still have a vivid recollection of that moment."
Whenever Wharton stares at his office bookshelf, he should have a vivid recollection of another moment - a pleasant clubhouse meeting. "We all get into this business for a multitude of reasons, whether it's the love of the outdoors, a love of the game of golf, etc... We all have that thing that motivates us," he says.

Matthew Wharton, Superintendent at Carolina Golf Club in Charlotte, North Carolina, became interested in TurfBreeze fans simply because of their size. "I saw some TurfBreeze fans on another course in Charlotte and was impressed by how big they were," explains Wharton.
In 2008, Carolina Golf Club underwent a total restoration. Because of the new course configuration, Wharton made advance arrangements to purchase two TurfBreeze fans and have them installed.
Again Matthew contacted his TurfBreeze representative and together they determined the location for maximum performance.
Wharton continues to illustrate how much he has come to rely on his TurfBreeze fans. "This year the weather was so bad even the putting greens located in ideal growing environments declined to a point where the greens with fans looked better. Our number 16 green is in a less than ideal location and this year it was the best conditioned putting surface on the course. Plus our number one green went from being the worst putting surface in 2009 to one of the best in 2010."
Wharton says he "can't find the words to describe" the great customer service. "As soon as you place an order the ball is rolling. Andy, Lisa and the entire team have been tremendous to work with. We've had no issues at all!"
The Carolina Golf Club is located in Charlotte, NC. Matthew Wharton, a native of Castlewood, Virginia, is a graduate of Virginia Tech. He has been the Golf Course Superintendent at Carolina Golf Club since 2005.
