I took the time to educate myself on local turfgrass management while my wife was busy.
Denmark has strict regulation on inputs allowed on golf courses as compared to our country; because of these strict regulations there is obvious blemishes. These flaws in surface life would be considered unexceptable at many clubs found in the US yet the playability was wonderful with no negative effect on the game of golf.
After studying these conditions and playing on them with local golf enthusiasts I now have an even stronger negative opinion of the 'perfection' image some believe this great game must achieve.
As long as Natural flaws do not negatively impact the game of golf they should not be managed to extinction. Weeds scattered with in the fairways turf has no impact on playability and only add texture to the surface. Dry patches add length to a golf shot and a point of reference while locating a shot. Those two areas in general are over managed in our country and that does nothing but drive up the expense of the game. A lot can be learned by traveling over seas and playing golf on a course that is managed as intended; at one with Mother Nature.
The courses have compressed air blow off stations next to the parking lots so players can clean off after early morning rounds or on damp days.
Case and point taken :)
A clover patch is seen above growing in the fairway, it does not impact playability.
Some extreme turfgrass management taking place at the gardens of Frederiksborg Castle. These extreme geometric banks have been hand cut for hundreds of years.
