Golf course agronomy is the science of agronomy or plant production as applied to the care and maintenance of golf courses. It combines elements from disciplines as diverse as plant breeding, genetics, chemistry, biochemistry, ecology, soil science and meteorology.
Golf course agronomists play an essential role in the golf industry by ensuring that courses are in top condition to the greatest extent possible within the constraints of weather, season, economics and golf course usage. Working closely with golf architects and greenkeepers, golf agronomists have expertise and act as consultants in the areas of golf course management, turf grass care and maintenance, seed selection, irrigation, drainage and soil analysis.
Golf course agronomists typically have a background in horticulture or turf management and generally have taken a primary degree in such subjects. A research career in areas pertaining to golf course agronomy is also possible with such a background.
