In these days…..

In the current global COVID-19 pandemic many of aspects of our lives have been challenged and changed. Our concern is focussed in other directions.

Sport is in lock down, Golf England has announced that golf courses must close.

We look towards a return to normal life at some stage in the year.

In the meantime presented here are some statistics on the state of the health of golf grass as it was left in March 2020.

We invite you to look through the results of the satellite data which I hope will give you an insight into a new way of understanding grass health.

The best place to start is to understand the science of satellite NDVI measurement.

Then to look at the trends for 2018 and 2019 before considering where we have got to in Q1 2020.

In the near future we are looking at a phase when the main priority for golf courses is “maintenance”.

At a financial level this will be be a severely challenging time for the golf courses business, and difficult decisions will have to be faced.

I wonder, when play resumes, where will we be in terms of grass health?

Fortunately satellite measurement will be able to tell us and it will also show us where we are in relation to where we might have been.
