Abstract/Contents:"The progressive improvement in the lifestyle of inhabitants of the Autonomous Community of Madrid (A.C.M.), allows them to spend part of their free time in leisure activities. Golf has become one of the most popular of these sports in the last few years. Currently there are 25 golf courses in the A.C.M. and last year there were plans to build another 20. A problem for the Public Administration is that they only have a short period of time to approve or disapprove of projects not yet completely developed. The principal objective of the work is to determine how to classify the territory into zones of greater or lesser compatibility for the construction of golf courses, and to represent them cartographically. Use of a planning model enables us to determine the suitability of territory for the site, construction and maintenance of a gold [golf] course. The model outline covers environmental, site, construction and maintenance requirements of golf courses, environmental characterization of the territory of Madrid, capacity and impact analysis, and territory assessment. The final map, entitled Suitability of the A.C.M.'s Territory, shows four classes of aptitude. The results provided by the capacity and impact models allow greater accuracy on the scale of the project. To facilitate the task, the work includes suggestions for the construction and maintenance phases. Some are of a general character, others are more specific for each level of define impact."
