Golf Course Maintenance
Certainly one of the most popular, but least understood topics in golf course maintenance is the speed of golf course greens as measured by a stimp meter.
At Barcovanour goal each year is to provide a greens speed that measures between 9 and10.5 depending, of course, on the weather conditions, seeding periods, hot spells and moisture from periods of rain. In my opinion a stimp measurement of 10 produces the best putting surfaces for most levels of skill. Even at these speeds, though, pin placement can be a challenge. Most tour players play on a speed between 11-12. The Masters this year was 13.
