“Golf Course Maintenance in Florida”

Glenwood Springs, CO (April 4, 2008) – Golf Club Consulting, Inc. was retained by the owners of Mizner Country Club to review and analyze the playing conditions of the golf course. 

Mizner Country Club is one of the best-kept secrets in southern Florida.  The gated community is centered around a magnificent 18-hole Arnold Palmer Signature golf course and is located in Delray Beach.

“The layout of Mizner Country Club is extremely unique for southern Florida and the golf course has gained quite a quality reputation in a very short period of time.  The development was begun in the late 1990’s and the members have quickly come to expect the very best in playing conditions, such as fast true greens and tight lies in the fairways.  Over the last year, southern Florida has faced many agronomic challenges tied to severe water restrictions and weather abnormalities,” said Richard Eide of Golf Club Consulting, Inc.

“Our commitment to the members and guests of Mizner Country Club is high quality playing conditions on the golf course. So, we’ve asked Golf Club Consulting, Inc. to review our turf agronomy practices and the golf course maintenance plan,” said a representative of the ownership entity. 

“The primary issue at Mizner Country Club is turf quality and weed intrusion.  We will analyze the existing soil and water samples and probably re-test many areas of the course.  The areas of concern are the fairways and roughs, with minimal concern tied to the turf quality of the greens.  We will also review the maintenance plan and the conditions of the tees.  What makes this especially complicated is the quality of the irrigation water and the water restrictions that southern Florida has experienced,” said Eide
The physical course inspection will take place on April 11th and will be followed by a comprehensive off-site analysis of what was found during the course inspection.  The final analysis will include turf agronomy recommendations.
