Abstract/Contents:Briefly presents a review of the creation of a golf-school course over a degraded waste dump in Italy, stating that "the expansion of green areas such as golf courses can help to improve the quality of life in many big cities." Details the materials and methods employed during the conversion, including the mineral fertilizer, plant mixtures, and irrigation rates used. Reports that "six years after planting, the turf continued in a dense state, and oversowing was necessary only in small patches mostly due to water logging." Concludes that "the quality of the turf persisted well over six years, regardless of the poor soil texture."
