Bring golfers back to the Game
Houston, Texas (PRWEB) November 18, 2014
Turf Feeding Systems, a Texas fergitation company recognizes that the golf industry is suffering due to high prices. Turf Feeding Systems will launch an Affordable Golf Program to reinvigorate the sport. The program will improve hundreds of quality public golf courses to offer affordable golf and bring golfers back to the game of golf.
Mr. Michael Chaplinsky, the president of Turf Feeding Systems is serious about implementing this Affordable Golf program and is looking for two public golf courses to install his fertigation system- at no cost- for a three year case study to prove the benefits and savings of his program. Interested individuals can contact him by filling out this form.
Chaplinksy notes, “the golf industry has been going through many tough years of losing players and no one has found a way to change the trend. Last year, in America, 300 golf courses went out of business, while only three new courses were built.
The 90’s were the golden years of golf growth when over 500 new golf courses were built each year. Everyone in the golf business did very well, producing equipment and designs for the new golf courses.
But, when the economy fell off the cliff in 2007, golf suffered greatly losing golf courses and players and the trend continues. One of the problems is that it is too expensive to play a round of golf with a friend or business associate, and thus players quit playing”.
Turf Feeding Systems has a way to change it and the solution is simple economics 101.
Michael Chaplinsky states, “The solution is to make golf affordable to anyone. I can improve the quality of any public daily fee course to the level of the best private golf club in the area”. He adds, “Imagine playing a quality golf course for $35 a round. It may not have the greatest golf course design, but the quality of the greens, tees and fairways will be as good as the top private course in the area”.
How is that done?
Mr. Chaplinsky is an expert in sustainable golf, which follows his proven principles. His principles use fertigation (injecting fertilizer and soil nutrients into irrigation water) to promote plant and soil health as well as improve water efficiency. His practices are very efficient and work well on any irrigated golf course, sports field and agriculture area.
He states, he can reduce irrigation water use up to 50%, reduce fertilizer and pesticide chemicals up to 60% as well as reduce labor and energy, while improve the quality of any golf course, landscaped area or irrigated agriculture area.
One of his customers, Matt Whalen, the superintendent at Cheyenne Country Club in Cheyenne, Wyoming, followed his sustainable golf principles and reduced his water use 50% and saved $100,000 last year. (Attached story) He adds, “There are many other case studies of examples, available upon request.”
Mr. Chaplinsky is simply applying these efficiencies to any struggling public municipal golf course to reduce operating costs while improving the overall golf course quality. His program will improve hundreds of quality public golf courses to offer affordable golf and bring golfers back to the game of golf.
Mr. Chaplinsky’s program is more than just improving the turfgrass quality of a golf course, it can easily double the rounds of play, which will improve the profitability. That creates extra money for needed new mowers, a new pump station and improvements in irrigation and design.
Mr. Chaplinsky is serious about this program and is looking for two public golf courses to install his fertigation system at no cost for a three year case study to prove the benefits and savings of his program. He says, this will dramatically change the game, by bringing more players back to the game they love…..golf, because they can now afford to play.
