My Best Feature is Roughs

Thomas Voigt, Ph.D.

Management of the golf course roughs is the topic of this week’s webcast. Management of cool-season grass roughs may be trickier than you think. Tom Voigt, Ph.D., will present some details that can help you make the best of the nuances involved. This 90-minute webcast will offer up-to-date information about:

  • grass species for links-style and park-style courses and mowed and un-mowed roughs in temperate areas
  • turfgrass ecology as it relates to the difficulty of creating playable, un-mowed roughs
  • mowing, fertilizing, and managing pests in roughs.

Join us to learn about roughs in the temperate U.S.

Original presentation date: Oct. 3, 2013
