Written for all superintendents and greenkeepers, Tournament Management addresses the needs and challenges you face in planning and managing any one of the thousands of golf tournaments held each year. From high–profile professional–level events to smaller regional, amateur, or membership outings, this book offers practical guidelines that can be easily adapted to all types of courses and to all types of tournaments.

Everything you need to prepare and maintain courses for tournaments is covered, in easy–to–follow, step–by–step detail, including:

Evaluating staffing needs

Implementing an effective agronomic program

Preparing greens, tees, fairways, bunkers, and roughs

Tending to cup–cutting, pest management, and fertilization before and during the tournament

Conducting and assessing the results of a trial run

Managing professional events

Tables throughout the book summarize key data for at–a–glance reference, and plenty of photographs help you implement the procedures set forth in the book. The final chapter offers a comprehensive pre–tournament checklist, ensuring that everything is in place and in order well before the tournament begins.

Whether you need to prepare for a televised national event or a small local event, this guide ensures that the staff and greens are ready to host a successful tournament.
