The first time I ran afoul of commercial groundskeeping equipment was the time I had one of my best-ever rounds of golf going, and arrived at the 16th hole to find that it was the one where they had started to aerate the greens. It’s good to know exactly what groundskeeping equipment can do, and although I was unaware before I strode up to the green, I soon found out that an aerator introduces tiny holes into the surface of the green, so as to help it ‘breathe’ better, i.e. to introduce more oxygen into the soil underneath. Needless to say, I was thrown for a loop and 3-putted that green, as well as the two remaining greens for the day. I love the fact that my favorite course takes such good care of its greens, but I wasn’t quite as thrilled about being on the course while they were doing it that day.
For someone who might be considering a career in commercial groundskeeping, there are several pieces of equipment which are fairly essential to the job. Here’s a rundown of some of the most important pieces of agriculture equipment and groundskeeping equipment you might need:
I know that my favorite golf course likes to use equipment from Turftime Equipment, and usually sometime in April, I can expect to see the huge 21-ft. heavy-duty fairway roller from Turftime out on the fairways, helping to level them off for play during the coming season. When I see the fairway roller while I’m playing, I always appreciate that, because it works to my advantage in keeping those fairways more level so I can get the maximum roll when I hit my driver.
Turftime also offers a number of de-thatchers and aerators in their line of commercial groundskeeping equipment, and as far as I’m concerned they’re all solid gold, because they all help to keep the golf course looking great, and able to support great play from all the area golfers. I’ve learned to inquire about the days when they might be aerating the greens now, so I never have a good round impacted by it anymore. And that means I can just play my game, and let them use all that great equipment to keep my course in great playing shape, so I can enjoy myself to the utmost.
