Abstract/Contents:"Golf courses provide vital ecosystem services to their communities, however lack of public awareness about golf course management is widespread. As part of an ongoing effort to help golf course superintendents document and communicate their professional land management practices, the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA) along with scientists from the University of Florida, with support from the United States Golf Association (USGA) developed the Best Management Practices (BMP) Planning Guide and Template. This guide documents basic science-based agronomic and environmental BMPs for golf course management. GCSAA embraced the digital environment by creating an easy-to-use online tool for steering committees in each state to update and adapt the template according to state regulations and regional agronomic concerns. These steering committees feature a range of stakeholders including golf course superintendents, scientists, regulators, conservation groups, and consultants. GCSAA's goal is to have all 50 states with BMP templates in place by 2020. After a state has published their online version, individual golf course superintendents can log into the online tool and easily create a BMP guide for their own course. The tool is designed to easily let states as facilities update these plans as science and technology advances. Having a BMP Guide at every golf facility will enable superintendents to easily document and communicate their agronomic and environmental management to golfers, club owners, media, and other community stakeholders. Outreach efforts to support facility-level adoption of BMP guides are already underway and include how-to videos, hands-on workshops, and conference seminars."
