The book, Designs on a Better Golf Course: Practical answers to common questions for Green Committees, is now available online.

The book, conceived and edited by ASGCA Past President Jeff Brauer, provides information on more than 50 topics that may be raised by Green Committee members and other golf course decision-makers as they consider improvements at their facilities.

The chapters in Designs on a Better Course are divided into 11 sections, including Renovations, Tees, Greens, Fairways and Roughs, Hazards and Construction.

“This book provides helpful information for those making decisions about golf facilities,” Brauer said. “Whether a Green Committee member, superintendent or course manager, having a basic understanding of how golf course architecture affects all aspects of your course and operation is a first step to a finished product that is more playable and profitable. That’s where this book comes in.”

Besides text, the book features several graphics and charts, including the life expectancy for a course’s infrastructure, the maximum slope for green speeds, suggested size for tees and more.

“The information included in Designs on a Better Golf Course meets the ASGCA Foundation’s mission to ‘support the health of the game of golf by funding and administering programs that grow the game,’” said Lee Schmidt, ASGCA Foundation president. “Jeff was assisted on this project by a committee of ASGCA members who provided content, comment and perspective, including Nathan Crace, Richard Mandell, Greg Muirhead and John Sanford.”
