Abstract/Contents:Profiles Allen Hershkowitz, senior scientist at the National Resources Defense Council, that "has coordinated greening initiatives for many of the world's most high-profile organizations and events, from major league baseball and the National Basketball Association, to the Academy Awards and Grammys." Suggests that "communicating golf's environmental achievements is vital to the survival of individual facilities and the industry as a whole." Notes that "the message of golf's environmental advancements, particularly in water conservation and input management, is well known within the industry but often missed by the general public." Describes golf's cultural influence and the potential importance for "merging stewardship and business." Concludes that "Hershkowitz urges golfers, facility managers, allied associations and corporate partners to help tell golf's story at major events and in their communities."
