TAS Services and Fees
Some of the services that a Turf Advisory Service visit include are:
On-Site Course Visit
This is the focal point of Green Section activity. Our goal is to help the golf
course superintendent and Green Committee by providing the most practical turfgrass
and golf course management information at the level of expenditure available at
the facility. Each agronomist on the staff visits more than 130 courses annually,
a service unmatched by any other organization.
The report provides a permanent record of observations made during the on-site visit
and the recommendations for continued development, both short and long term.
If questions or problems arise, calls are welcome any time. Particularly challenging
problems will be discussed with other staff agronomists who face similar situations
in their region.
Agronomic Reprints and Publications
A wide range of topics are available through your local Green Section office or
Golf House. Recent additions include the USGA Recommendations for Putting Green
In many regions a Regional newsletter is published several times a year containing
pertinent regional information on golf and turf management topics.
Full-day and Half-day visits are available. The fees for the service in 2014 are:
A $500 discount is available if payment is received by 5/15/2014.
