Performance Resource Management is a premium agronomic service designed to deliver superior results. By taking a holistic approach to resource management and improving the biological health of soil, we improve playing conditions, all while conserving water and reducing other operational costs.

Working to keep the grass on your golf course as healthy as possible throughout the year is a key management decision. Unhealthy grass will be wholly reliant on water, fertilizer and pesticides and extremely costly to maintain… there are also growing environmental and social cases against such intensive approaches to management.R&A

GOLF IS FACING AN UNCERTAIN FUTURE

 

Each year, we experience a more challenging business environment combined with more extreme environmental conditions that push us to find better ways to utilize our natural resources, to do more with less. 

Traditional golf course management focuses on physical management and chemical management, but altogether neglects the third element of soil health: biological management.

Increasingly, years of traditional management lead to increased thatch layers, poor drainage and infiltration — and as a result, unhealthy greens that suffer poor drought tolerance, slow flood recovery, poor playing conditions, along with the negative environmental and economic impacts.   

OUR PHILOSOPHY

 

We strongly believe in doing more with less.

Our program improves the overall conditions of greens by addressing core agronomic issues with a straightforward and organic solution, that promotes natural soil biology.

By solving underlying problems within the soil, the greens are better able to recover from drought and flood — thus reducing maintenance costs and preventing lost playtime — and irrigation efficiency increases. This improves playing conditions and decreases the negative environmental impacts of traditional course management.

We believe a holistic approach to resource management is what will successfully drive the golf industry into the future.

OUR PROCESS

Each golf course has a different soil agronomy, and climate-specific needs, which is why each PRM program is specifically designed on a client-by-client basis. Our workflow proceeds in four steps:

1. EVALUATION

We begin with an on-site assessment of the agronomic conditions of the golf course by performing various soil tests. We also look at business operation metrics to assess the economic impact of current resource management.

2. PROPOSAL

With our first round of data gathered, we map out how to integrate our system with existing infrastructure, plan timeline, model and forecast potential economic benefits, and set ourselves up to measure results.

3. INSTALLATION

The system is put into place. We work closely with the agronomist or superintendent to establish an operations manual and logging procedure before training. Then the PRM system is adopted and begins running.

4. OPERATION & SUPPORT

We engage in weekly or bi-weekly phone calls, regular site visits, ongoing site analysis, quarterly reviews, and end of year reports—all to ensure that our PRM program is delivering results.

SEE RESULTS

“Good greenkeeping is based on good soil husbandry. A vibrant soil biology will support healthy grass… Good surfaces for golf are based on the quality of grass, not the quantity. Excessive lush growth, from the over-application of water and fertilizers, can be very costly to control and can also make your course more susceptible to outbreaks of pests and diseases.” – R&A

 

In our programs we measure and track changes in: 

 

Agronomic Data

  • Thatch and Root Depth

  • Compaction

  • Drainage and Infiltration

Economic Data

  • Water Usage

  • Utility Expenses

  • Various Business Metrics

These data points help us to measure the overall health of greens and the conditions of the soil beneath it — a foundation for creating the best playing conditions possible.
