The aim of the course policy document is to provide guidance, and to bring continuity and consistencey to the management of the course.
It is standard policy for golf clubs to have a Golf Course Policy Document that describes the main aims & objectives for maintaining the various areas of the course, along with the prescribed operations. Details such as mowing heights and frequencies of the maintenance operations are described in order that club members have an understanding of the maintenance procedures that apply to their course, and the reasoning behind the procedures.
In many cases there is an ongoing need to review the document and update it in line with changes and fluctuations. Typically these will involve changes to staff numbers, specification of materials, environmental challenges, and legislation. Details of mowing heights and green speeds will typically be included.
