Golf Course Managers Bring Sustainability to the Links
How to Play Environmentally Friendly Golf
The majority of the work done to preserve golf courses is done by golf course superintendents and groundskeepers. However, golfers can also participate in the act of preserving the golf environment while playing; one of the biggest aids to the environmental golf movement is when golfers support efforts by thinking and acting environmentallybeforeandafterplaying. Expecting a perfect course is an unreasonable expectation and encourages superintendents to use harmful chemicals to fix problems that more mindful playing actions could have alleviated in the first place.
Play only within the course limits.Going outside causes erosion, despoliation and creates unnecessary marks on other vegetation nearby.
Do not enter any natural or designated areas.They are protected for a reason; as an amenity to improve your experience, as a way to make the golf course look more pleasurable to local residents and passers-by, and sometimes even as a condition of the club's license.
Avoid the use of golf carts, if possible.These produce greenhouse gases, localized pollution, and damage the turf with their weight. And think about how your weight benefits by walking instead, whatever your age.
Obey all cart rules if using a cart.The rules are there for good reason, to prevent damage to turf, to equipment, and to others. Replacements cause resources to be wasted in their manufacture.
Repair all ball marks.This is the least you can do as a sign of respectful consideration.
Replace all divots.
Pick up tees after use.Leaving them lying about can create problems for turf maintenance machinery, for other players, for wildlife.
Dispose of trash/recyclables properly.As you would do anywhere, keep your litter in a bin, not in your environment.
Use environmentally-friendly products (tees, markers).Look for green products when purchasing and support these over non-recycled etc. products. The more people who purchase Earth-considerate products, the better, and more people purchasing helps to lower the prices for such products.
- Advocating more naturalistic golf courses is a helpful way to preserve courses. Most of the work to be done is after you play. Start by contacting your local course or joining the Audubon Green Golfer Pledge.
