About the Golf Research Enterprise

 

Golf course managers and greenkeepers have the unique opportunity to determine the direction of an innovative new research programme led by STRI and in association with BIGGA.

 

The Golf Research Enterprise is aimed at identifying and developing solutions to the problems facing turf management professionals now and in the future. The project is fully funded by STRI as part of its commitment to supporting the industry and the results will be made available to all.

 

Crucially the decision as to what the Golf Research Enterprise has to research is down to you – the people who manage golf turf. What do you think are the most difficult turf management challenges, where a focused investigation could determine future best management practices?

 

The challenges of golf turf management are varied; they could be UK wide or may be very localised. What keeps you awake at night? What turf issue do you Google most? These are the issues the Golf Research Enterprise would like to identify, investigate and disseminate the resulting knowledge for the good of the golfing industry.

 

How the Golf Research Enterprise works

 

Tell us your burning issues on your golf course by logging into and completing a short questionnaire survey at https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/GRenterprise

 

We will collate all the responses and prioritise those of greatest concern. The priority list will be presented and discussed at BTME 2020.

 

The survey is open to all turf managers, you do not have to be a member of BIGGA to participate.

 

Next steps

 

Once the priority topics are established, the Golf Research Enterprise will develop a research programme to investigate and identify solutions with trials work commencing at STRI’s research facility in Bingley in 2020.

 

Depending on the nature of the research programme instigated, you may have the opportunity to be part of the Golf Research Enterprise research programme by completing parts of the research objective on your golf course under the guidance of STRI. Therefore, we would be grateful if you would indicate your willingness to be part of any trials work on your returned questionnaire.

 

The results

 

The results from the research programme will be updated periodically in seminars at BTME and STRI Research Days, online and via social media as well as through articles in Greenkeeper International and STRI’s Bulletin.
