The link below is a FANTASTIC article written by Pat Gross, the USGA Agronomist responsible for oversight of the US Open at Pebble Beach. In my opinion, this article could not have been written any better. Many in the golf industry, USGA, GCSAA, EIFG just to name a few, have continued on a campaign that green is not always what is best for golf. Responsible and sustainable approach to not only golf course management but to all turfgrass management is where all our focus needs to be; from the golf courses to parks, to home lawn care.
