The book serves as a reference and guide for all who are involved in golf course design, development, and management, and integrates practical, scientifically based siting, design, and management practices based on accepted principles for sustainability. You'll find detailed case studies and environmental research from the USGA as well as a foreword by Arnold Palmer.

From the Back Cover

From the Foreword

"This book is an important guide for all who love and play the game. The integrity of the game is exemplified by golf industry professionals who share in the responsibility to protect our ecosystems while preserving one of golf′s most appealing aspects . . . the natural environment."
Arnold Palmer

Sustainable Golf Courses is the most authoritative guidebook on environmental management of planned and existing golf courses. Featuring a practical integration of scientifically based siting, design, and management practices founded on accepted principles of sustainability, this convenient resource helps readers meet the economic, ecological, and social expectations facing the game of golf and the entire golf course industry.

Written by the founder of Audubon International, whose collaborative effort with the United States Golf Association (USGA) formed the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf Courses, Sustainable Golf Courses is packed with useful information that can be applied on a case–by–case basis to any set of environmental issues on any golf course. It demonstrates how through skilled planning, development, and construction a golf course can provide many attributes of a nature reserve and generate sufficient money to manage the playing areas and the natural areas included in the golf course budget.

Complete with detailed case studies and environmental research from the USGA, Sustainable Golf Courses is a valuable tool for maximizing open–space opportunities on golf courses.
