Scientific Agronomic Leadership

Golf Course Agronomy Services at BrightView
Our PhDs in golf course agronomy work hand-in-hand with your club leadership and superintendent to troubleshoot problems, plan annual agronomic programs and provide guidance for capital improvement projects. We also invest in R&D to stay at the forefront of the latest technology. As a result, you'll get the latest research and technology as well as the type of tools and treatments that few private courses can afford in-house. The result is sophisticated planning, proactive execution, earlier detection of issues and faster, more effective solutions.
New science-based treatments are developed every year to better combat new and existing golf course maintenance problems better. Our PhD agronomists, Dr. Trey and Dr. Todd, regularly attend University Field Days and many annual scientific meetings including the American Society of Agronomy. This gives them access to a network of resources for sources and testing when new products come to the market.

In addition, our PhD golf course agronomists also work with manufacturers to help test their new products. Our customers benefit because it allows us to implement new, quality-tested technologies as soon as they are released.
The result is sophisticated planning, proactive execution, earlier detection of issues and faster, more effective solutions.
As new equipment and technology is developed, we source and test it, or take the lead in developing it. Some in development and testing now utilize computer-operated/assisted technology for tasks that are highly repetitive or require more accuracy and precision than a human could ever accomplish.

  • Online growing degree days tracking – With Michigan State University, we are developing an automated online database that will track and store site-specific growing degree days — a ground-breaking tool that will enable our superintendents to create the most accurate and effective agronomic plans possible.
  • GPS controlled spray rig – We’re testing the functionality and potential cost savings of a spray rig that uses GPS technology to eliminate overlap and missed areas when spraying fertilizers or fungicides. A more precise application will allow for healthier, more efficiently delivered uniform turf.

  • Robotic mowers – To improve effectiveness and cost-efficiency, we’re testing Robotic mowers that can get more done before play starts, driving themselves using GPS.

  • Remote sensing technology – In partnership with Michigan State, we’re studying remote multispectral sensing technology to better map soil moisture and plant health, to identify turf stress before the human eye detects it.
