Maintaining Golf Courses in Texas


Create a Schedule 

A schedule can help you stay on track with maintenance needs so you can hire additional staff for big events, budget for seeding purchases, and keep equipment maintained. 

Identify The Areas With The Greatest Wear And Tear 

Once you’ve determined the areas most worn by carts, foot traffic, and clubs, you can schedule the time your crews spend. While you want to make sure the entire course looks great, these high impact areas can make a difference in the overall appearance of the course.

Switch to Turf

By switching to artificial golf turf, golf course managers cut maintenance needs in half. You won’t need to mow, water, or fertilize artificial turf. Even if you decide to only install turf on parts of your course, like the practice putting greens or the clubhouse area, you will be able to take that off the daily maintenance list.



Make It Sustainable 

Dallas golf courses must prioritize water conservation, reduced chemical applications, and course longevity. There are several ways to reduce water, fertilizers, and pesticides, while improving the longevity of the course as well, the best way is to consider switching to commercial turf.

Create a Natural Rough 

Many golfers don’t like the rough. It makes the game much harder, especially for less experienced golfers who often find themselves searching for wayward balls. But the rough, no matter its appearance, does require a ton of maintenance. If you switch to a natural rough, with native plants or growth regulators, you will be able to create a beautiful look with less work.

Maintain the Equipment 

Maintaining a golf course is about more than just maintaining the fairways and greens. You have the maintain the equipment that keeps the course lush and gorgeous So be sure to stay on top of irrigation updates, lawn mower maintenance checks, and fertilizer stock. 

Switching to Turf on Your Budget

  • cost savings due to reduced maintenance staff
  • better water conservation efforts
