From the Back Cover:

Best Golf Course Management Practices is an invaluable guidebook and reference for those studying turfgrass management or golf course management, as well as for golf course superintendents, managers and assistants, and individuals considering buying or constructing golf courses.

Within these covers, the author and twenty-seven acclaimed contributors share their expertise in areas ranging from turfgrass to environmental science. The most current and comprehensive publication on the market, Best Golf Course Management Practices provides the following need-to-know information that leads to successful golf course construction and maintenance:

  • Turfgrass plants, their adaptation, physiology and growth and development characteristics are described in laymen's terms, including environmental and management practices which most influence growth and development, as well as survival. Current available varieties, their characteristics and possible alternatives are listed, providing an excellent "study guide" of explanations and limitations of various grasses.

  • The interaction of agronomic practices, pest occurrence, Integrated Pest Management (IPM) strategies and techniques, and control options are listed and discussed. Included are the major insects, diseases, nematodes and weeds affecting golf courses. Additionally, the text provides pesticide management and handling practices. Many courses are required to develop environmental strategies, and this book will prove a valuable resource.
  • In-depth discussions on the various means of designing and constructing golf courses, including greens, according to available supplies, player demands and budgets. A general sequence of construction events outline those steps necessary to plan, permit and actually construct a golf course.
