Essentials for Golf Course Maintenance

Published

Golf Course

Maintaining a golf course is no mean feat. Creating a course that is always in prime playing condition requires year-round maintenance, with a number of different areas that all need addressing. Read on to find out what the essentials are for golf course maintenance.

Grass Protection

Golf course turfs deal with a lot of traffic, and without proper maintenance and protection, the grass can easily turn into a soggy mess, leaving the course unplayable. To prevent this, grass protection mats are essential, especially in problem areas and where golf buggies are likely to be used.

Specialized Mowers

You don’t need to have ever even set foot on a golf course to know that it is made up almost entirely of grass turf. While this makes for a beautiful setting to play in, it also means that no golf course can operate without lawnmowers.

Unlike the general public, golf courses must invest in specialized mowers to maintain their turf due to the size of the are and frequency at which the grass needs to be mowed. Although these specialized mowers don’t come cheap, they are well worth the investment as they are essential to keeping a golf course in playing condition.

Irrigation Maintenance

There is nothing worse than turf with an uneven colour or dry patches, which is why proper irrigation is essential for golf course maintenance. However, proper golf course irrigation isn’t as simple as installing an irrigation system and forgetting all about it.

To achieve the perfect turf, irrigation must be properly maintained in order to ensure that the grass is neither too dry nor too soggy.

Fertiliser & Plant Growth Regulators

Maintaining a golf course requires a delicate balance between keeping the grass vibrant while ensuring that the course doesn’t become overgrown with all sorts of flora and fauna. To do this, you need to make sure that you use both fertilizers and plant growth regulators to maintain your golf course.

When it comes to fertilizers, you can either use granular or liquid fertilizers, although it’s best to use both for optimal turf maintenance. Granular fertilizers release nutrients slowly over a period of weeks to even months, ensuring that your golf course turf always has the necessary nutrients required to remain lush and green. Meanwhile, liquid fertilizer can be used to revive small patches, thanks to their quick uptake.

While fertilizers are essential for grass growth, you’ll need plant growth regulators to keep everything else from becoming overgrown on the golf course.

Topdressing Machine

A topdressing machine is essential for golf course maintenance because it improves the speed and smoothness of putting greens, and helps to reduce compaction. Any golf course groundskeeper knows that creating a high-quality turf is about more than just ensuring that the grass is green.

Top dressing can help ensure that the course is playable for longer periods throughout the year while maintaining the speed and smoothness that players expect.

Because topdressing requires frequent application over a large surface area, no golf course should be without a topdressing machine as one course can usually go through roughly 50 tonnes of sand per year in topdressing alone.

The Historic Win of India vs Australia

By Far This Is My Best Achievement”: Virat Kohli Rates Test Series Win In Australia Above World Cup Victory. The Blue Squad has done us proud after the 11th attempt in the last 70 years it is a test series that they have won in Down Under. Virat Kohli has again proved his worth as the captain of Indian Cricket Team and has brought the trophy and the title that was much awaited.

He has created history and is the first Indian and Asian Captain to win a test series in Australia, after the fourth and the final Test ended in a draw in Sydney on Sunday. The young aggressive captain has put the critics to shut after the glorious win and he himself scored 282 runs in the four-Test series that also has a century.

It was not only the moment but the entire series and gesture by the Captain that made the country so proud. He has risen from his individual stature and claimed it to be the efforts and dedication of the team that he is leading that resulted in the glorious win.

This was a special achievement and by far the best moment of his cricket career.

Not only his game it is the skill of the team that he has helped him to win and he said in a post-match presentation “ Firstly I want to say, but I’ve also never been more proud of a team than this one.

The culture we’ve been able to build over the last 12 months. Our transition started here when I became the captain for the first time.’ Beautiful words to describe the beautiful feeling of winning a series that have created history.

Kohli was also the part of Indian ODI team that won the ICC World Cup in 2011. The captain then was MS Dhoni. Still, the present captain and Indian skipper claim this win even above the previous win.

And has commented “By far this is my best achievement. Has to be on top of the pile. When we won the World Cup, I was a young player. I saw the others getting emotional,” 

Well previously also the captain has won test series and this is his fourth win in the Test series and it surely makes the team and is very proud.

Cheteshwar Pujara and Rishabh Pant

Pujara has faced 1258* deliveries in the series which itself is a record by an Indian cricketer in a Test Series in the Australian ground, this record has broken the record of Rahul Dravid. His batting style and cricket playing talent have been applauded and he is the viral sensation, the fans have down poured their positive comments and well wishes for this iconic player.

His talent and determination know no boundaries but surely his balls cross the boundary. He got some 193 runs in 373 deliveries that have 22 fours (dismissed caught and bowled by Nathan Lyon of day 2) and this is an incredible achievement for any Indian batsman in a foreign land.

This was the first inning stat and again if he is on the strike the figure will be huge; he is the defensive batsman and will surely defend the title and series for India.

The other man in blue who is young and naïve worth mentioning is Rishabh Pant. The young lad merely 20 goes unbeaten in his second Test and has scored 159.

A post shared by Rishabh Pant (@rishabpant) on

Rishabh Pant along with MS Dhoni and Nayan Mongia is the only wicketkeeper to score a Test century in Australia. In the 137 deliveries, he scored 159 and not out.

Former captain Azharuddin was in all praises for this young talent and in an interview and claimed “Rishabh Pant batted really well but needs to improve his wicket keeping. I was surprised that he hit only one six in his unbeaten knock. But he played very well and I feel India has found a batsman similar to Adam Gilchrist,”

The young talent needs to be a bit more polished to enter the team for T20 and ODI series. He is thus not in the team against Australia and New Zealand for the ODI but will be onboard for the World Cup in England and Wales that is scheduled later in this year.

The boy is young and needs a bit more mature approach towards the game. There is too much of game in him, he is growing and has matured in his game and is surely a good wicketkeeper and an overall keeper for the team.

Well, the former cricketers like Aakash Chopra, Nikhil Chopra and many more have termed him to be mandatory for the World Cup. The two men and the team collectively make sure that history is rewritten and the team who has never won test series in Australia will get the series in their name.
