Golf Books #308 (Practical Greenkeeping)1

The first edition of ‘Practical Greenkeeping’ was produced in 1997 to fill a huge void in practical knowledge in a format that could be easily understood at all levels.

Jim Arthur’s experience, advising more than 550 golf clubs in Britain and Europe and acting as consultant agronomist to the Championship Committee of the R&A, made him the ideal man for the job. His no-nonsense, down-to-earth approach conveys his message loudly and clearly. Golf courses can flourish by following traditional methods that are the most simple and most effective, both in terms of condition and cost. This second edition contains a large amount of new material in the form of appendices to chapters, bringing the debate right up to the minute in terms of new regulations on pesticides and fertilisers and restrictions on the use of water. Now, more than ever, the sound traditional advice in ‘Practical Greenkeeping’ is vital to all those involved in the preparation of golf courses. New generations of student and trainee greenkeepers will find the content of this book invaluable and it will also stimulate much debate and provide encouragement for experienced course managers.
