Why golf and the environment?

Golf has a unique role to play in caring for our environment.  By their very nature, golf courses provide significant natural areas that benefit people and wildlife in increasingly urbanized communities across North America.  At the same time, golf’s use of chemicals, water, and other resources to maintain pristine golfing conditions is often criticized for threatening the quality of our environment. 

Now, more than ever before, golfers and non-golfers alike are taking a second look at the nature of the game.  Golf courses offer numerous opportunities to not only provide pleasant places to play, but also to protect drinking water, improve the water quality of our lakes, streams, and rivers, support a variety of plants and wildlife, and protect our environment for future generations.
