Planning for Replacement - How Long Does This Stuff Last?

Tom Marzolf

Does your course have a master plan? A master plan should include a detailed analysis of the age and condition of the course and the entire facility. It is also a review of the age of the component parts of the golf course, with an understanding of their expected lifespans. Tom Marzolf, past president of ASGCA, updates this popular webcast title with the latest thinking on the timeframes of various components of a facility and how long things normally last. You can use this new information to be prepared and know how to prioritize your budget.
