5.0 out of 5 stars Read this book and you will make your superintendent happy. 12 Jan. 2013

This book helps to understand what it takes to have great golf course. I highly recommend reading this book to private club green committee members and golf club managers so they have better understanding what their superintendents do.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book!! 19 Feb. 2014
By Paul E. Dowaschinski - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I purchased this book because I was offered a part-time job mowing the greens at a local golf course. I thought it would be an introduction to the world of golf course maintenance. It was that and more! I'm now making a career change and have been offered a full-time position in the field.

This is an excellent book, particularly for golfers who want to know a bit more about how the courses they play are maintained. It is full of interesting facts about the courses we play, for example, a typical green is 5000 sq. feet etc...

Whether you are thinking about working on a golf course or just play on one, "Practical Golf Course Maintenance" is an excellent purchase.
