Superintendent of the Country Club at Castle Pines, Sean McCue, has worked within the golf industry for twenty-five years and as a superintendent for the last seventeen. Over the years he has worked throughout the United States in Pennsylvania, Florida, California and Colorado. Some of the more prominent golf clubs he has worked for include; the Riviera CC; Castle Pines Golf Club; and his current position at The Country Club at Castle Pines.
"I first played The Country Club at Castle Pines twenty years ago and fell in love with the golf course at first sight. I always told myself, if I had the opportunity to become a Golf Course Superintendent there, I would do everything possible to make it happen," says Sean.

"Essentially, we are tournament-ready on any given day," says Sean. He affirms that the golf course is maintained to the highest possible standards so that the members can be proud to bring there guests along to play and explore the club.

Sean explains how, with use of the Seair system, the club utilizes effluent water for irrigation of the golf course which, environmentally, is the correct choice. However, the concept comes with several negatives from an agronomic standpoint, as the water is high in Sodium and Chlorides as well as having elevated bicarbonate levels.
"Resultantly, the water contains a high PH level; therefore, we must inject Co2 into the water stream in order to lower the PH to a more acceptable level," says Sean. This Co2 injection takes place at the same point the Ozone is injected into the stream creating supersaturated water that is applied to the golf course. It is these bi-products found in the water that can have a negative effect on the overall health of the soil and the quality of the turf grass.
Although, it is too early to determine how much water consumption has been reduced at The Country Club at Castle Pines, Sean expects to witness at least a ten percent overall reduction in usage over the year. One of the key elements of the Seair system is it reduces the surface tension of the water, making it easier to absorb into the ground and prevent the water from 'running off'. The installation cost of the unit was included within the lease agreement along with all unit service costs during the term of the lease.
"I would highly recommend the Seair system to anyone who is dealing with poor water quality, as the system improves water quality without adding synthetic chemicals that can cause other problems," says Sean.
