Abstract

Extensive discussions of sustainability and environmental impact of golf course management have raised interest in how management can be changed to minimize impact. The authors surveyed superintendents in Utah to explore management decisions and interest in organic programs, followed by online education offered on organic management. A survey in the following year explored how their practices changed in response to the education and other factors.
