STRI annual agronomy visit.

Alistair Beggs from the Sports Turf Research Institute carried out his annual agronomy advisory visit on Thursday 11th June. The purpose of the visit is to review prevailing course conditions and to offer advice on on-going management and project work.
The day comprises an initial talk where the Course Manager discusses and provides information on management practices that have been carried out since his last visit. There then follows a course walk where playing surfaces and recent project works are looked at and discussed. Following the visit a report is compiled on the findings of the day with recommendations and comments.

During the course walk soil samples are taken for sampling of organic matter levels and the nutrient status. Photo's are taken which often help to make a point.
