Abstract/Contents:"The paper describes ways of utilising the results of current turfgrass research to reduce the cost of golf course construction. Construction, based on precise and scientifically developed technical criteria, closely related to design and course maintenance considerations, is essential if first class economic facilities are to be produced to meet the demands of golf throughout the world. Aspects concerned include the relationship between design, specification and construction management and how their scientific integration can lead to significant cost reduction in terms of length of capital investment and course profitability. In addition, the effect of these considerations and their successfull [successful] integration is discussed in terms of future course maintenance costs. The effect of site ecological and landscaping aesthetics and requirements both at the construction and in the subsequent management phase are an integral part of the construction project and are discussed in relation to the concept as a whole."
