Turf diseases can soon cause untold damage to a golf course and, ultimately, destroy the reputation of a golf business in very quick time.

This course looks at the primary diseases that can occur on a golf course and seriously impact the playing surfaces for the golf. These include:

- Fusarium Patch
- Anthracnose
- Dollar Spot
- Take-All Patch
- Fairy Rings
- Thatch Fungi

It also looks at the preventative measures that can minimise the threat of disease, as well as the fungicide control of disease should/when it breaks out on your golf course.
