The Master’s guide to seasonal course work

7.45am 1st September 2009 - People

Ever wondered what work is required on a golf course and when is should be carried out?

Well help is at hand in the form of an easy to read short book that is full of practical information with work focused on the four seasons of the year.

As well as acting as a reference book, it describes the key tasks required in each season and the reasons why they are an essential part of any planned maintenance program.

The book is packed full of the reasons and benefits of why such work is essential and it is aimed primarily at Golf Club Managers, Secretaries, Owners and so on.

However, it will no doubt find its place at colleges as well as with Course Managers; being useful as a training tool for students of the game. Included with this book are numerous colour photos as well as a few useful data charts.

This book has been written and produced by Master Greenkeeper Laurence Pithie and is the second in a planned series of short books aimed at giving both practical and technical information to golf clubs both in the UK and in Europe.

The book consists of 48 pages in colour and is available from Turf Master One Ltd at £22 plus P & P.

To purchase a copy, contact or call Laurence on 01666 505233 or 07774 414207. Details of this and other publications can be found on his website
