Free iBook on Golf Course Maintenance

By: purgatorygolf on February 5th, 2013

There is a great book you can download for free in the iTunes store and you can read it on your iPad or iPhone. ┬áIt’s called Golf Course Management, written by Karl Danneberger. It covers the basics of golf course maintenance issues such as:

  • Cool & warm season turfgrasses
  • Mowing
  • Irrigation
  • Fertilizing
  • Coring
  • Rolling the greens
  • Turf disease
  • Turf pests (as in bugs)
  • Weeds

It is loaded with video content, pictures, and of course text. I can’t believe it’s free. It produced by the Ohio State University Science Series: Turfgrasses. They have a podcast too, and I intend to check that out.
Yes, I know, who wants to read about golf course management? But tell the truth, haven’t you always wanted to read a whole chapter on Pythium Blight, with movies?!
