Abstract/Contents:Suggests that "understanding a course's energy use and how to reduce these costs has been shown to stabilize operating expenses and even bolster profits." Describes potential methods of reducing energy costs on the golf course, including smart metering; the cap-and-trade philosophy; and renewable energy. Explains that an "advantage to smart metering is that customers will know exactly how much energy is being consumed at any particular time of the day." Concludes that "everyone's aim should be to reduce energy and water use and maximize operational costs to increase a course's profitability, and reinvest these savings into the overall facility."
