This is a great course for gaining a greater understanding of the Manager’s role in maintaining a golf course.

The course looks at the role of the Course Manager and how the position fits in with the wider club management structure.

It explores the components of a Course Management Strategy document that can be used to guide course maintenance standards for the club.

It draws links between maintenance tasks and the provision of labour in order to carry out these tasks, as well as the link between maintenance standards and equipment/machinery resources required.

Delegates will gain an understanding of the basic operational course maintenance budget and key areas of expenditure, in addition to personnel considerations such as job descriptions, contracts of employment, training and safety procedures.
