TURFUNDERGROUND’S TOP 5 GOLF SHIRTS FOR THE SUPERINTENDENT

Polo and Peter Millar by Eric J. von Hofen
Ask any of my former employees and they will tell you my saying. If you dress like a farmer on the golf course, they will treat you like one. As a result, I have always dressed up the part and have kept my golf shirts on the cutting edge. I have based this list off of price point, durability, cut, and style. Superintendents spend just as much time on the golf course as some teaching pros but we have different needs in our shirts. Here it is, the top 5 shirts superintendents must have.

1. Polo by Ralph Lauren
2. Peter Millar
3. Fairway and Greene
4. Donald  J. Ross
5. Nike Golf

I’m not much into the performance materials(polyester), although they do provide some better UV protection than the cotton threads. To me they seem hot and tend to have a “plastic” smell. Nike Golf makes some that don’t smell.  My preferred material for the shirts listed above is cotton. Hit up your golf pro and have him get you the same deals they get from the manufacturers. You can get these shirts at cost and you will look like a million bucks watering that green.

Synthetic turf change out on the tee line


Is there ever enough turf on a busy practice range tee? In many cases there is not, and an area of synthetic turf is the only option to keep golfers happy. If you’re thinking about installing a synthetic turf at your golf course, you should watch this video below. In it I explain the process and show you how a new tee line is installed. If you have ever warmed up on one of the old types of synthetic turfs, you know when they wear out it hurts your hands after you hit the surface with your club. I have seen that the nylon material wears out in about three years, depending upon traffic and sun light exposure. The new materials are now made out of polyester and are made to withstand heavy use. The cost has come down over the years and it makes more sense to look at these products as a solution to your shortage of tee space.
