Abstract/Contents:Reports that "according to the U.S. [United States] Golf Association, golf courses provide the same environmental benefits as other green spaces. Acres of fairways act as filters, absorbing pollutants, giving off oxygen, and cooling the atmosphere. They also reduce erosion and absorb noise and sun glare." Describes environmentally friendly golf course design, stating that "golf courses can...reclaim environmentally damaged land...Covering landfills or mined areas, for example, challenge designers to transform the wasteland into an environmentally friendly design."
