Abstract/Contents:Details a potential for popular culture to misrepresent golf courses, specifically their water usage. States that "in the context of periodic drought and a recession, many golf operations have tightened their faucets." Lists methods in which golf courses are lowering their water requirements, including the conversion to drought tolerant turf species. Discusses utilizing efficient irrigation systems, explaining that "these devices measure soil moisture content, soil salinity, compaction, the slope and aspect of the topography, as well as plant density, color, and stress."
