A celebration of the modern-day golf course superintendent, this amazing book takes you back to the roots of the profession, providing the cornerstone on which current maintenance and construction practices were built. With basic principles that hold true today, Golf Greens and Green-Keeping educates through insightful chapters on green construction and maintenance, bunker placement and design, maintenance of fairways and tees, and course routing and strategy—along with rarely seen photographs from the turn of the century.
