Helping Municipal & Public Golf Survive & Grow will create Affordable Golf
Houston, Texas (PRWEB) December 13, 2016
The golf industry has been in very serious trouble for years, with over 200 courses closing last year in the US and more this year.
“Helping public golf grow and become strong is our Mission and Passion,” states Michael Chaplinsky, president Turf Feeding Systems.
Turf Feeding Systems (TFS), a Houston company, has a team of experts and a plan to save struggling municipal and public courses across the US by reducing operating costs and improving their quality and profitability.
Chaplinsky states, “We have been in the golf business for over 30 years across the US and around the worldand are the leader in golf fertigation systems, which injects liquid fertilizer and soil nutrients into irrigation. Our systems make each drop of water lightly sweet with nutrients for the plant and soil, which is very efficient. We can reduce water, fertilizer and chemicals up to 50%, while improving the golf course quality. Reducing costs and improving quality is our expertise.”
Chaplinsky continues, “Municipal and public(MP) golf makes up 76% of the golf market in the US and they need help. I have formed a team of golf course experts and we are focused on saving the struggling MP golf courses where 90% of the golfers play golf. We can help any course anywhere become great and profitable no matter what budget or problems they face."
"Harold Vaubel and Bill Nolde, our team, each have over 25 years of experience managing some of the top courses in the western states. They know how to grow grassand manage a crew. We can help any course save $10,000 to over $50,000 annually, while improving quality to increase rounds up to 20%.”
“The great deal in real estate was to buy a 'fixer upper and flip the house for a big profit', and we are about to do the same thing in golf. We are currently looking at several courses in Arizona that developers want to unload to home owners. We will joint venture with the home owners to purchase and manage the course, rebuild quality, start turning a profit and sell it to the home owners,” explains Harold Vaubel.
Bill Nolde says, “Our team knows how to reduce operating costs, improve quality, rounds of play and add value to any golf course. Most golf courses need new mowers, irrigation upgrade or a new pump station, and we can help any golf course pay for that out of savings in their budget. We are the only group offering savings and improvement of any golf course.”
Chaplinsky concludes, “We have a portfolio of success stories saving struggling municipal golf courses like Boiling Springs GC in Woodward, OK. We helped Jeff Wagner, the superintendent, recover from dirt and bentgrass greens to become one of the best public courses in Oklahoma. Wagner saved $80,000 this year and increased the rounds of play 20% at a municipal golf course in the rural when the city manager cut all city salaries back 10%. If we can do it in Woodward, Oklahoma, we can do it anywhere in the US.”
