Estate Management: Not Just a Greenskeeper

By: BIGGA | Mon 12 Jun 2017 | Comments ()


For many course managers, the limits of their responsibility do not only extend to the boundaries of the golf course.

Sure, the course is their priority, and quite rightly so, but the entranceway, out of play areas and other assets such as putting greens, tennis courts, or gardens can also fall under their remit.

Streamlining of resources due to increased economic pressures have also meant greenkeepers are being asked to take on additional responsibilities.

This increased role means a diverse range of agronomic, management and horticultural skills may be required, ones that fall outside of a greenkeepers’ usual training.

Therefore it is absolutely vital that course managers are given the opportunity to acquire this knowledge, whether by completing courses or attending educational events.
