Last week, we visited La Finca Golf Resort (Alicante, Spain), to carry out our annual “Green Playability Program” that evaluates green performance and ball roll thanks to specific measurements. This program was provided to our client, as part of our comprehensive golf course consultancy service.
Once a year we produce a report for the Board of Directors and agronomy team that shows the data gathered on the following key parameters:
- Organic matter content by depth.
- Soil nutrient analysis.
- Green Speed.
- Green Firmness.
- Soil moisture.
The data becomes more valuable year after year, allowing the Club to have objective data to consolidate, or adjust if necessary, an ongoing turfgrass management strategy to reach the targeted playing quality standards of the Club. The aim of our “Green Playability Program” is:
- Obtain accurate measurements of playing conditions.
- Provide with highly valuable data to make decisions.
- Improve consistency and homogeneity whithin a green, and between greens.
- Help optimize the greens playing quality.
- Identify areas that need improvement.

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.
After a dramatic drop in temperatures, we update the technical article “Frost and the importance of frost delays: let’s preserve the quaility of the golf course”
We participate in the “annual general meeting” to explain the members our vision and the rationale behind the decisions that are made regarding golf agronomy and golf course renovations.
We set up an strategy of improvements in golf course maintenance with the aim of optimizing operational costs while improving the commercial appeal of the golf course.
We verify the evolution of the golf course in Norba Club de Golf first-hand and how the maintenance team faces the extreme weather in summer after the renovation of the irrigation system in 2.017.
Even though virtual education cannot be equated with the soul of face-to-face learning, it is a fantastic tool to ensure that education is not affected in these times.
