Abstract/Contents:"The Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund and the Protecting Michigan's future Bond Program will be utilized to assist communities in the purchase and development of golf courses. In addition, the Department also administers the Farmland and Open Spaces Act which has benefitted some golf courses by setting their property taxes as if the land was undeveloped." Development of golf courses are in danger because golf course chemicals and fertilizers are polluting the waters and the golf developers are unsensitive to the resources so the DNR is producing a permit application guide for use by developers of golf courses. There are also tips for working with the department that will benefit developers, management, and owners. The reasons for the different places in which a golf course should be built is also stated and because there is no guarantee that if all the steps are followed the permit will be issued be extremely cautious about the place in which the course is being built.
