Course Operations & Maintenance

A golf course is a living thing, and superintendents can’t bring the course back to regular playing conditions simply or quickly after a period of neglect. Even if the course is closed, a minimum maintenance regimen will help keep the turf healthy and “standing by” for when facilities are able to resume standard operations. The Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA) and United States Golf Association (USGA) recommend the following minimum practices for course maintenance, including mowing, irrigation, plant protectants and fertilizers, bunker maintenance, and equipment maintenance. (Keep in mind that turf conditions and needs vary greatly around the country, so the guidelines should be adapted to the current growing conditions in your region.)
