Adopt environmental stewardship practices
The golf course industry has recognized best management practices and voluntary environmental management programs specifically for environmental stewardship or for adopting a sustainable business philosophy at the golf facility. Golf course superintendents, professional golfers, club managers and others can access these to help ensure success at their facilities. Golfers and the public should learn about the practices or programs that are in place at their local golf facilities. Together then, we can commit to continuous improvement.
GCSAA provides a great place to start to learn about environmental stewardship or sustainability for the golf facility. You can review the sustainability section, best management practices and the golf course performance goals. Also, you can learn about the environmental management programs and systems available for golf.
