Overview

For the first time a book finally combines field experience with the fundamentals of turf science to help you understand the concepts involved in proper grown-in management, and to troubleshoot problems on-site throughout the management process. A major goal os this unique handbook is to outline and detail the numerous quality control issues that face golf course superintendents and managers—to serve as a guideline for the multitude of questions that need to be addressed before, during and after construction. It stresses the magnitude and importance of finish construction and grow-in as it relates to turf maintenance, turf performance and the playability of the course—from its opening into the future. A great resource to help educate owners and developers about the details of the grow-in sequence and its budgetary requirements.
