Abstract/Contents:Queries "golf was not meant to be like this [perfect] so why do we try and achieve perfection when perfection has no place in nature and no place in the natural challenge that is golf?!" Suggests that "there is no correlation betwen active grass growth and good surfaces." Concludes that "being realistic is important and at the same time we must use out knowledge and expertise sensibly to maximise the potential of what we have without destroying the Royal & Ancient game and its inherent charcter. This is what good greenkeeping is about - not creating perfection."
