The landscape for the game of Golf

The Golf course is a true masterpiece of landscape design. It consists of areas with green grass of different shades (due to the different height of mowing the lawn), areas with sand and blue water traps. Huge amounts of money are spent on maintaining it in perfect condition.

The field care team includes: architects, landscape designers, technologists, grass care specialists, and lawn mowers. Each field has an individual portrait, which consists of the height of the grass, the nature of the turf, the size of the bunkers and the shape of water barriers.

There are two types of fields:

Parkland-a Golf course, a significant part of which is made up of artfully planted trees;

Links is a field with a unique natural landscape that includes many sand dunes. As a rule, such fields are located on the sea coast.

Several million dollars are allocated annually for the maintenance of a full-fledged high-quality field. This is partly why Golf is considered the most expensive sport. However, in order for the field to become an ideal Playground with a well-groomed lawn, without weeds and bald spots, it must take at least 25 years. That is why closed clubs with a rich history, excellent infrastructure and serious membership fees are the most popular among wealthy people.
