Weather

 
 
 

Nearly everything on a golf course is predicated by weather – fertilizer and chemical applications, mowing, and water management to name a few. The more accurately you can predict the weather, the more precisely you can make decisions that positively affect playing conditions and save you money.

Water Management

 
 
Knowing just the right amount of water to use to create optimum playing surfaces can make all the difference.

Optimize water management and develop best watering practices that will help you reduce water and energy costs, improve chemical and nutrient applications, so you can create consistent playing conditions on your course.

The OnLink Water Management feature helps you correlate optimal soil moisture levels and key weather variables such as evapotranspiration, humidity, wind, and forecasted precipitation. And, you can set early warning thresholds that send text and email alerts when you begin approaching water budgets, low or high soil moisture levels, and other key weather variables that can affect watering practices.

Chemical & Nutrient Application and Inventory Management

 
 
 

Easily reduce usage and save on applications by making decisions based on key weather and soil conditions, rather than a generic spray calendar provided by the product supplier.

Effortlessly establish optimal chemical and nutrient application practices based on key weather and soil conditions with the Playbook Application log. This turnkey data log is pre-populated with chemical and nutrient companies, products, and course information, complete with all fields required by state regulations, and dynamically updates as new information is available. Users can also add custom areas of application, weather notes, equipment, and more!

The OnLink + Playbook log helps you easily record data and view records in a snap, plus, access the documents database that includes over 3,000 labels of products specific to the golf market.

It’s easy to track nutrient and AI applications on your course – up to 13 different nutrients and AI lb/m are automatically tracked for you when you enter products on the application log.

Quickly access coverage charts that show proper application intervals to alert users of transitions and expirations and use Accumulator to provide a running tally of each product total applied on the course year-to-date.

All equipment information and relevant financial information can now be in one place, so you can monitor from start to finish.

Playing Conditions

 
 
 
More predictable playing conditions lead to higher profitability for you!

Performance can now be quantified. Easily create recipes that eliminate performance subjectivity with defined speed and firmness goals for different times of the year and season that are correlated with key weather variables, equipment practices, nutrient programs, and soil conditions.

OnLink helps you determine the best recipes with options to establish thresholds for daily play, club/course tournaments, outings, and seasonal differences. Then, review reports to correlate key weather variables, equipment and labor practices, soil moisture levels, and growth nutritional programs that give you insight on what works best.
