Paul Mills

“It is an eternal regret that I never got to work with Mr Arthur. The testimony of people that did, only emphasising how greenkeepers of my generation missed out. His legacy is timeless and unmatched in the industry.

I have found myself time and time again throughout my working life going back to the wisdom of Practical Greenkeeping, to keep me on the straight and narrow under the ever increasing pressures of golf course stewardship.

It should be compulsory reading for anyone managing or working on golfing turf. Twenty years on I still learn little bits here and there that I have missed before when using it as reference.

Thank you to FineGolf for continuing to celebrate Mr Arthur’s work and to those faithful stalwarts that still implement it, keep up the good work.”
