Efficiency and Efficacy Are Par for the Course
Author: Keith Brewer
For golf course supervisors, many problems they encounter are unforeseen at worst and poorly timed at best. One of the worst of these can be inclement weather, like when a long run of adverse weather conditions a couple years ago in Myrtle Beach cost courses numerous rounds of golf and created a wide variety of problems for superintendents.
It began with record rainfall and flooding caused by Hurricane Matthew in October, and then was compounded by a humid December. As a result, Phythium root rot struck much of the South Carolina coast. A cool spring meant that superintendents who overseeded didn’t even realize their Bermuda grass was in trouble until well into the spring season. Not only were effective solutions a must, but course superintendents also needed to move quickly and work as efficiently as possible to avoid losing out on many rounds of golf right in the middle of the most important time of the year.
This type of situation is what inspires our innovative turf solutions. Our highly concentrated turf colorants, which are easily transported, measured and dispensed, provide a way for supervisors to keep their Bermuda grass looking picturesque until they have the opportunity to re-sod or repair. And since closing down can cost anywhere from $10,000 to $20,000 each day, there’s a lot riding on keeping the course playable and attractive. Let’s take a closer look at the different ways we help golf courses of all kinds realize that the best solution can actually be the easiest, as well.
