Drive for im­prove­ment

The Cut - - WORLD NEWS -

The USGA and the Amer­i­can So­ci­ety of Golf Course Ar­chi­tects (ASGCA) have launched a col­lab­o­ra­tive pro­gramme to help pub­licly ac­ces­si­ble golf fa­cil­i­ties im­prove the de­sign and main­te­nance of their cour­ses and de­liver a bet­ter ex­pe­ri­ence for their cus­tomers.

Com­bin­ing the ex­per­tise of ASGCA mem­ber ar­chi­tects and USGA agron­o­mists, sci­en­tists and re­searchers, the pro­gramme will pro­vide pro bono con­sult­ing ser­vices to fa­cil­i­ties that need as­sis­tance to achieve their goal of mak­ing their lay­outs more en­joy­able and re­duc­ing their main­te­nance costs.

Fa­cil­i­ties can sub­mit an ap­pli­ca­tion for the ser­vice, which will in­clude an on-site eval­u­a­tion, pro­fes­sional anal­y­sis and a re­port out­lin­ing rec­om­men­da­tions for im­prove­ment. Rec­om­men­da­tions can cover course de­sign, agronomy, en­vi­ron­men­tal ste­ward­ship and golf course op­er­a­tions, with the goal of low­er­ing costs while also im­prov­ing the golfer ex­pe­ri­ence.
