  2. Tournament Operations 24. Tournament Operations – From Club Events to International Tour Events James Graham Prusa

  3. Tournament Operations • Tour events and standards cannot be kept perpetually • It takes 1 to 3 years to ‘ramp up’ to the peak of Tour conditions that are intended to only last for 1 week! • At the majors and other top events we exert serious stresses on the golf course • On the turfgrass • On the club • On the staff • On finances • Top tier tournament conditions should only be approached for the briefest moment in time James Graham Prusa

  4. Tournament Operations • Applying what the tour standards have taught us to routine management Good turfgrass health management practices help to balance high-quality conditions and their usually higher costs. James Graham Prusa

  5. Tournament Operations • How do they achieve those ‘Tour Conditions?’ • ‘Preparation’ is just as key for the kitchen and for the golf course • The key is planning and taking time to ‘ramp up’ for peaking conditions ‘just-in-time’ for the event James Graham Prusa
