Robert McElreath, Club Car’s vice president of Connectivity, discusses innovation and how millennials are changing the golf experience.
In many countries, golf courses can be used to effectively control flood water in mountainous sites within major watersheds. The practices used to provide this control can be equally effective on many flatland golf courses around the world when potential downstream flooding can be an issue.
Golf course superintendents perform a multitude of tasks and interact with many people. It is easy to see how they can become distracted and moved off task by events, both planned and unplanned. So how do you keep your focus and reject the distraction?
Water management on putting surfaces is a bit more advanced these days, especially for those in southern climates who manage warm-season turfgrass.
How can a municipal course reduce the amount of managed turf in areas of play, reduce the amount of water it uses for irrigation and introduce turf and out-of-play landscape plantings that will most effectively tolerate its reclaimed water source?
We must keep in mind that these potential course-damaging events are par for the course. They come with the job.
