Modified USGA standards greens, fine sand bunkers with natural white sand also add expensive fabric liners to these bunkers so we can display sand at ridiculous slopes, oh, and ignore blemish-free turf from tee to green don’t. Is it harder to forget about the tiger than it was to catch him by the tail?

We will be the victim of our very own technology; let’s examine two basic issues with technology just, golf maintenance and design and see if we have determined the enemy. Today on fine sand greens than we do on earth greens Do we verify greens less? No. With dense new bentgrass cultivars these new supergrasses seem to create even more thatch, so rather than verification to just reduce compaction we are in need of this process to eliminate gathered thatch and pore clogging organic matter. Old force up style greens I have observed lately likened well with these elegant sand structured miracles of technology.

Poa annua (Annual bluegrass) is still no less of a problem in most geographic areas with or without sand-centered greens. So, what have we gained by building greens with scientifically selected fine sand size? Let’s grab this tiger by the tail and run the real numbers. 40,000 per year. That’s nuts!

That means as soon as the first putt rolls in the cup at least one dollar per round, permanently, must be preserved for the rebuilding of the greens, in today’s money! A ground-green, (of which there are numerous great examples in America) can be built under the strictest specification and become built for a fraction of the cost. These greens often have better soil microbial activity, use less water far, play firmer, and support very good populations of turf.

Another driving power in the favour of fine sand green is the course architect, the reason being is they can form a green with extreme contours and not get worried with surface drainage as the old dirt based greens. The type of sheet drainage (old style greens) that was thought to lead to soggy methods and waterlogged greens surrounds. Those soggy areas around greens are easily solved by installing drainage at a small percentage of the price.

Bunkers are even more absurd than greens! In such cases form adopted newly useful and improved building techniques, golf course architects used these new and expensive building and maintenance ways to build extreme cost and high maintenance golf course sand bunkers. The entire life of sand bunkers is said to be only 5 to 7 years. 92, per season of bunker life predicated on 7 many years of asset in service 857.

132, per year 857. That’s simply for bunkers and greens renovations or replacements, day one the asset was placed into service from. Who else at fault? The superintendents will be the next nemesis of the grand old game. Their increasing expertise proved that super-green ever, blemish-free turf could be performed, at a considerable additional cost!

Golf course designers have been exercising oneupmanship for the last 50 years. The golden age of golfing architecture with practitioners such as Maxwell, McDonald, McKenzie, Today for their design genius Tillinghast and Ross are lauded, even today. They understood golf on an increased level than most and based their designs on what was available to build with on site.

They never shifted 100,000 cubic back yards of soil; they designed the greens to surface drain properly. Trees, as a rule, didn’t have an objective on golf course design except for an intermittent grove of apple or pear trees to provide the walking golfers with a delicacy during the dog days of summer.

The cost of golfing has increased dramatically due to these advances in design, construction, and maintenance. With today’s economic pressures, over-supply of golf, a reduction in free time and lenders and banks classifying golf as “Toxic Assets” we have built high-maintenance features without the forethought of cost. Golfing maintenance has been inexpensive; however, golfer, owner, superintendent, and associates needs to strive for ever-increasing pristine conditions and visual excellence.
