Let renowned expert Thomas Nikolai bring you up to speed on establishing and maintaining the best green speeds for your course. He covers it all: playability, environmental and weather factors, mowing, turfgrass species selection... every consideration that influences how fast and how far a given putt will go. Dr. Nikolai — turfgrass academic specialist at Michigan State and green speed specialist for The Golf Course Superintendents Association of America — distills a wealth of research and first-hand experience into easy-to-follow advice on how to deal with the common problems associated with green speed, techniques on how to find the ideal speed for your greens, and the correct use of current technology, including the Stimpmeter. His non-technical language makes the information accessible whether you're a golf course superintendent or a student. Order your copy today.
