We could not be happier to have returned to Colombia to conduct the course “water movement through soil in golf courses”, organized by the Colombian Golf Federation and held in the renown Carmel Country Club de Bogotá. The course was a complete success with a large turnout and it has meant a unique and incomparable experience to us.
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.
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.
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.
We define the foundation and general guidelines of the agronomy strategy to be implemented in the next few years, working side by side with the golf course Owners and the Head Headgreenkeper.
A touching visit that shows a firm commitment to sustainability, including the implementation of practices and measures that make it possible to preserve resources, habitats and biodiversity.
