Abstract/Contents:Discusses the understanding of the term "golf course sustainability" and how it can be incorporated on courses as a means of reducing its costs and "environmental footprint." Introduces the "Golf's Drive Toward Sustainability" program, explaining that "'many people think of sustainability as just hanging on to what's already there. Sustainable development is doing better with what we have.'" Mentions Madden's on Gull Lake and its owner, Brian Thuringer, as a case study of a golf course implementing ecologically-friendly changes throughout the facilities. Reports that the course was able to significantly reduce its costs, attract new visitors, and earn distinction in Golf Digest as a result of the transformation. Notes that "'we approached this [renovation] from the backside, the economic side.'"
