In 2009 STRI began to look at ways to measure greens in an 'objective' way, rather than subjective, and ran a pilot study across 86 golf clubs to work out the best way to do this.
As a result of this pilot study STRI has developed the tools and methodology to provide golf courses with a new service "The STRI Programme", to complement their existing course appraisal and advisory service.
This new and innovative programme has been developed to improve both the playing quality and consistency of performance on golf greens.
Clubs trialling the new programme have been delighted with the results. The new service gives them objective information on how their greens are performing and enables them to make informed decisions regarding the maintenance of their greens, to achieve more consistent greens and better playing quality for their members.
The results and feedback from the pilot study and a descriptive launch of the new service, 'The STRI Programme' will be shared on Tuesday January 19th at BTME Week 2010.
Come along and see for yourself why Course Managers are calling this "a most welcome tool" to include in their maintenance and improvement programmes.
The STRI Programme at 1.30pm on Tuesday 19th January 2010 in The Queens Suite, Room QS1
