In partnership with the Thai GCSA, the Asian Golf Industry Federation (AGIF) will conduct the inaugural AGIF Turfgrass Management Exposition as part of Sustainable Turfgrass Management in Asia 2013.
At past conferences, the equipment and product demonstrations have been some of the most interesting and informative sessions. With the introduction of the four hour AGIF Turfgrass Management Exposition, to be held at Siam Country Club on 12 March as part of the 2013 conference, these educational opportunities to learn about the effective products and techniques for turfgrass management will be expanded.
The Field Day program this year will start with two hours of practical sessions at Siam Country Club, on the topics of course preparation for tournaments, a demonstration of the Greenstester and The R&A Holing Out Test, and a look at bunker maintenance. Then comes the AGIF Turfgrass Management Exposition, followed by the option of 9 holes of golf with turfgrass managers from around Asia or a tour of the new course now under construction at Siam Country Club.
This is a fitting venue for the educational field day, turfgrass exposition, and a chance for course inspection by playing or by seeing how a new course is constructed, planted, and grown-in; Siam Country Club's Plantation Course was recognized as the Best Maintained Course in Asia Pacific in the latest Asian Golf Monthly Awards. You'll want to attend to see these conditions for yourself and to learn more about how it is done.
