Effective recording and monitoring of all chemicals, materials and labour resources used in course management is important to monitor course performance.  

We recommend the free online system provided by The R&A Coursetracker. This system can also enable a club to monitor past usage and trends and to compare and benchmark usage anonymously against similar courses in the country. See https://www.coursetracker.org/ or contact us directly for for more information.

In the wider golf facility other resources such as water, energy and waste should also be recorded and monitored so savings can be made. See our Supply Chain advice pages for more info on support available.
