Rick Slattery, golf course superintendent at Locust Hill Country Club in Rochester, New York, says Augusta is the measuring stick for golf courses and superintendents.

"Whether we like it or not, our golf courses have always been compared to Augusta," Slattery adds.
What's wrong with trying to measure up to the way Augusta appears during Masters week, Slattery asks.
"I've used Augusta as measuring stick throughout my career," he adds. Slattery realizes his course, which has hosted several LPGA tournaments, doesn't have budget and resources that Augusta does. But that doesn't stop him from studying Augusta's nuances in an attempt to become a better superintendent at his own facility.
"The beauty of golf is that it's not played on a regulated sized or shaped playing field," Slattery says.
...
Conditioning aside, Slattery says, Augusta is great for golf, and the Masters' continued popularity only exposes more people to the game.
"The tournament reaches millions of people all over the world. Slattery says. "It's just great exposure for gold. The history of the Masters is second to none."
Slattery remembers watching the Masters on TV when he was a kid, and Big Three - Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player = where duking it out for a green jacket. The Big Three dominated the Masters From 1960 through 1978, winning the event 12 times among them during that span.
"The Masters was one of the most successful golf tournaments brought to TV and had some really exciting finishes that made people fall in love with the game," Slattery says.
...
"Augusta certainly has the resources and exposure to become an effective leader [in the environmental movement]," Slattery says.

Rick Slattery, the superintendent at Locust Hill Country Club, a high-profile private club in Pittsford, N.Y., is one of those superintendents.

"It reconnects me with why I got into the business in the first place, and what I love about the business," says Slattery, who has worked in the business for nearly 45 years.
There's nothing like working up a sweat while raking a bunker early on a Saturday morning as the sun is coming up and the birds are chirping, Slattery says.
"Working out on the golf course provides me with a sense of intimacy with the golf course, which is vitally important to me," he adds.
Slattery usually joins his staff on the weekends or helps them out in a pinch. He's aware that some private clubs don't want their superintendents out mowing greens and raking bunkers.
"I've had members come up to me and say, 'You have people who do that kind of work for you, don't you?' I tell them, 'Yeah, but I love doing it.' That's all I need to say to them."
Slattery believes superintendents at private clubs can only benefit from getting down and dirty on occasion.
"Your office is the golf course," he says.
There's also an added benefit of joining the crew to rake bunkers.
"It's probably the best motivational tool that I know," Slattery says.
