Date of Birth
Years in Current Golf Course
SC. I started my career as Golf Operations Staff at Golden Green Golf & Country Club 15 years back. Being Golf Operation Staff, I used to interact with maintenance staff on Golf Course as part of my daily routine work. As a hobby I try to learn stuff related to Golf and gradually I started learning how to maintain Golf Courses, and usage of fertilizers and chemicals for the same. Later on, I worked with Thailand Superintendent in Oxford Golf & Country Club and gained practical experience for Golf Course Maintenance. Currently, I am working with Royal Jaipur Golf Club.
SC I do not have only formal ‘on the job training’ but I regularly take advise from my Agronomist Friends who are experts in turf maintenance subject.
SC. I regularly attend classes arranged by GCS & MAI. I have also attended classes conducted by Dr. Micah Wood.
SC. Maintaining Golf Course itself is the biggest challenge in Jaipur (Rajasthan) because here Golf Courses are constructed on soft soil and soft soil needs proper irrigation monitoring but I like to face the challenges and learn from them.
SC. I keep on reading books to enhance my knowledge alongwith regularly attending seminars. I also discuss my problems with experts to learn more in this field. For me learning is a never-ending process.
SC. I keep interacting with Golfers regularly on Course and take their feedback about the Golf Course Maintenance issues. I strive to solve the issues as per feedback received from them as I believe this is only way to satisfy Golfers with regard to Golf maintenance issues. Majority of the times, complaints are received from beginners because they don’t have much of technical knowledge. I feel, Superintendents should have all technical answers to satisfy the Golfers.
SC. Golf Courses protect the environment and natural heritage. They also offer opportunities to play at pleasant places.
SC. We are not using effluent water.
SC. Working on natural environment is the biggest reward for me.
SC. Yes, I love challenges.
SC. Maintenance Cost is a major concern for all Golf Courses, we should work and try to reduce the same always.
