We participate in the members Annual General Meeting at El Paraíso Golf Club, to explain them our vision and the rationale behind current decisions that are made, and future to be made, regarding golf agronomy and golf course renovations.
The construction works for the extension to 18 holes in New Sierra Golf, Murcia, have already kicked off. This long-awaited moment due to the pandemic is now a reality. In this post, you will find out information about our role in this project.
We visited Empordà Golf carrying a drone, 2 GPS equipment and a robotic total station. Teamwork combining drone technology with more traditional topographical methods allow us to complete the irrigation system & golf course topographical survey in record time, and therefore to reduce its cost.
What should be the minimum area of a green to have enough hole locations? We break down the key factors to determine which is the available area for conforming hole locations and we go through the methodology that we have developed in the Real Club de Golf de Tenerife to achieve it.
The dominance of poa annua in greens that were originally seeded with bentgrass happens frequently. In order to revert this situation, an obvious option is Interseeding. Here, you will find out why we are implementing this methodology in La Peñaza, and the keys for post-maintenance works and success.
We went through the key points for a successful turf reduction strategy that allows for a reduction of the total irrigated area while improving the quality of the golf course and the golfer experience. All these, in a AEGG (Spanish Association of Club Managers) masterclass, where four members of the AEdG (Spanish association of Greenkeepers), contributed with their experience and vision in the matter.
Destiny has made us a beautiful present and we visit the Real Golf of Pedreña, the home course of legend Severiano Ballesteros, to perform an irrigation audit. The aim of the audit was to evaluate the existing situation: what is current condition of the installation, and where we want it to be in the future
We visit La Finca Golf Resort to carry out our annual “Green Playability Program” and evaluate green performance. This program includes the evaluation of key parameters, such as organic matter content by depth. soil nutrient analysis, green speed, green firmness, soil moisture, smoothness and trueness.
We review the most important aspects for selecting the right bunker sand at the first edition of the Master Corner arranged by the Spanish Association of Greenkeepers.
We share details and particularities of the technical study that we’ve been commissioned to produce to asses the viability of incorporating fairways and collar sand capping in the ongoing drainage improvement project.
