INCORRECT MAINTENANCE DOCTRINES LEAD TO DEAD GRASS & USELESS GOLF PLAYING SURFACES !

Confessions Of A Sick Bastжrd Who Likes To See The Poa Die   

~

   Chronically sick      Constant struggle every year      Constantly trying to die      Disease absolutely exploded      Disease more prevalent      Failures      Highly susceptible grass      Keeping green on life support      Problem green      Stuck in the circle of decline      War zone      Worst disease ever      Worst playing conditions. 

~

The above quotations describe the predictable results on golf courses managed by so-called snowflake-activist-superintendents, like Jason Haines ( aka Turf Hacker ), who has confessed that his unproven & incorrect maintenance doctrines are failures. 

~

Haines has described himself as the Sick Bastжrd … Who Likes To See The Poa Die.   [ ?!?!?!?! ]  

~

And, based upon the photographic evidence that he has presented in his Turf Hacker blog, he has been granted his wish. 

~

See The Confessions Of An Activist-Superintendent in the link below. 

~

Haines, & other activist-superintendent, allow themselves to become distracted with failed, unproven, incorrect, & undisciplined doctrines that do not work, or have no place in decisions concerning golf course maintenance, such as     

~

   Environmental Impact Quotient ( EIQ )      Go Brown Anti-Cosmetic Golf Maintenance      Fertilizer Nutrient Reduction      Integrated Pest Management Practices ( IPM )      Minimum Level For Sustainable Nutrition Guidelines ( MLSN )      Organic Maintenance      Pace Turf Information Service      Pollinator Best Management Practices      Self-Imposing Restrictions & Prohibitions Against Pesticides      Spot Spray & Spot Treatment Replacing Blanket Application      Switching To Ineffective Green Alternative Pesticides      Zero Cultivation & Reduced Core Aeration. 

~

By adopting these incorrect & undisciplined maintenance doctrines, observers question the activist-superintendents’ ability & competence to provide what paying golf-customers demand. 

~

The most successful main-stream golf course superintendents provide paying customers with high-quality playing conditions & aesthetics with greener, thicker, pest-free, & manicured turf at an affordable cost. 

~

Haines, & other activist-superintendent, also appear to be clueless about plant physiology & disease incidence. 

~

In fact, many of their diagnostic-observations are absolutely wrong. 

~

The golf industry’s correct & disciplined main-stream superintendents must recognize that they are on a collision course with pesticide-hating activist-superintendent. 

~

In order to successfully deter their malicious efforts, the golf industry must establish policies for expelling these snowflake activists from its trade associations.
