Turf Care Centers

It has been some time since I have written about the subject of maintenance buildings and the associated site and companion buildings that make up the Turf Care Center.

Many superintendents sometimes see just the fancy maintenance buildings and Turf Care Centers in magazine articles and books, but in the following space I thought I would let the pictures do the talking. This is what’s out there.

From Florida to Connecticut, California to New Jersey, this photos are typical.

Keep in mind these photos are of private clubs, some in the top 100, most have budgets well over 1 million dollars.

A theme that repeats itself time and again, JUNK! I am beginning to wonder; do superintendents have a love affair with old equipment, plastic drums, and brittle PVC pipe?

Office areas and parts rooms, poorly kept; every course associated with these Turf Care Centers was in great shape, every single golf course was in exceptional condition!


How does your Turf Care Center look?
