HASH(0x9c0543a8) out of 5 stars Practical Golf Course Maintenance 1 May 2013
By Tim Hiers - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Practical Golf Course Maintenance is just that! It is a book that contains common sense and practical applications for all facets of golf course maintenance, improvements, and dealing with membership expectations. This book could be especially useful in communicating to members the dynamics of shade, traffic, drainage and other course maintenance related issues. I would suggest that the reader use a highlighter for future references. The book is well worth the time invested to read it and could easily be used for college-related turf curriculum.

HASH(0x9bce2f6c) out of 5 stars Practical Golf Course Maintenance: The Magic of Greenkeeping 19 Mar. 2013
By Bruce Williams - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This book has been updated from the original version. It is a must have for a simplified view of what it takes to maintain a golf course to today's standards. I would recommend it for anyone interested in golf to see the magic that takes place every day to provide the playing surfaces that golf course superintendents provide.

This book should also be a part of any library that individuals seeking a career in golf course management should have.

Great job of writing and sharing pertinent information by two well recongnized individuals in the golf/turf industry!
