Golf's drive to sustainability

Recently I had the honor to meet face to face at GCSAA's national headquarters in Lawrence, Kansas with other industry partners as part of GCSAA's (our national Superintendent's association) Environmental Committee. We have had several electronic meetings throughout 2010 in an effort to draft BMP's (best management practices) not only for the golf course, but for the entire facility and this 2 day meeting was to further discuuss our progress. I got to meet personally some industry leaders and the interaction and information overload was well worth it. Legislation is coming and our efforts are aimed at being ahead of the curve and to position programs and protocols out there for all parties to utilize. Two of the GCSAA staffers who have been instrumental in the development of the Drive to Sustainability program are featured below.

Next week you will be back to my in house production team as we highlight some basic cart etiquette as we look to preserve the awesome playing conditions at WR.
