Lower Your Eco-Handicap: Green Golfing Tips
When you’re on the greens, are your own actions green? Here are some tee-off tips from Earth Share:
• Patronize courses that are environmentally friendly.
• Walk the course instead of driving a golf cart. If you do use one, stay on the designated path.
• Urge your golf course to use electric-powered carts to reduce air and noise pollution.
• Recycle glass, aluminum, or plastic containers; help organize a golfers’ recycling program.
• Respect the course’s environmentally sensitive areas.
• Recognize golf courses are managed land areas that should complement the natural environment.
• Accept the natural limitations and variations of turf grass (brown patches, thinning, loss of color).
• Be willing to play on brown grass during periods of low rainfall.
• Initiate and support your golf course’s conservation and habitat protection plans.
• Encourage maintenance that promotes long-range turf health (aeration, reduced fertilization, limited play on sensitive turf,reduced watering).
• Commit to long-range conservation efforts (efficient water use,integrated pest management)on the golf course and at home.
• Take pride in environmentally sensitive courses.
