As the stewards of golf courses in New York State, superintendents are dedicated to protecting New York’s natural resources and embrace the responsibility to maintain these facilities in harmony with the natural environment. Therefore, the golf industry has led the effort in establishing Best Management Practices (BMPs) for golf courses in the state. Authors from Cornell University have integrated the latest research on BMPs specifically for New York’s climate and environment. These research-based, voluntary BMP guidelines are designed to protect and preserve our water resources that enhance open space using current advances in golf turf management.
“…The New York State golf course superintendents associations, as well as researchers at Cornell University, are to be commended for recently establishing the Best Management Practices for New York State Golf Courses, providing a foundation for environmental stewardship…”
