From January 2019 – MG will be introducing our own online greenkeeping section with the greenkeepers of The Midlands as the stars. Contributors will include the pictured three here, Dave, Dale and Jonny, all currently employed as Head GK’s at their various clubs.

Going down the line we will be welcoming other local GK’s and course managers, taking a look at some of the new equipment on the market and the guys will explain all about their vital work and the challenges they face to keep our golf courses in good nick, especially during periods of unhelpful weather conditions.

An educational and illuminating section that should not be missed. While the guys are putting together their first entries to the section, we’ve dug out a video clip below to get us started, a topical one too. As winter hits, it’s all about the frost – and why it’s wiser to wait.
