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.  It’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?!
