Based on hands on experience and a deep understanding of turf and soil ecology, John’s methods produce healthy, high performance greens that are a joy to maintain and less costly for clubs.

Not just an eBook, but a full plan of attack to help you turn your green around and achieve consistent high performance. Book comes with a HALF PRICE SOIL ANALYSIS, a full report and greenkeeping schedule written by the Author for your green!


“After devouring all the information and following your advice I have members coming to me and saying the green has never looked better or played better! Some of these are the ancient stalwarts who have been members for years, visitors are also full of praise. Woods are rolling smoothly and the pace is good -thanks again! Barry”
