The United States Golf Association (USGA) recently posted a short animation on its website explaining why very few courses can actually resemble those that are seen on television during professional tournaments.

According to the USGA, staff agronomists at the organization are often asked by golfers why the courses they play can’t be like what the pros play. In response, agronomists created a video to explain why it is difficult for non-tournament courses to achieve such a goal on a consistent basis. The animation clarifies that preparing a course for a professional tournament requires years of preparation, a significant budget, a very large staff, and countless volunteers, thus making the process cost prohibitive for most golf courses.
